An opportunity to admire the huge sandy beach on the banks of the Mediterranean; an opportunity to visit the beautiful department of the Pyrénées Orientales between the sea and the mountains; an opportunity to discover the Occitanie region with its local products, wines and gastronomic delights...

But now it is also time for the seventh edition of the “Occasions du Multicoque et du Refit” (the second-hand multihull and refit show); the only event of its kind dedicated to second-hand cruising multihulls, and the ideal place to come if you are looking for a second-hand catamaran or a trimaran with sails or engines. As soon as you arrive in Canet-en-Roussillon, you can sense that this is the place for multihulls; it is true that CATANA/BALI, one of the leaders in the business is based here, but there are also the hundreds of multihulls down here being spruced up or simply here to be kept warm through the winter...

Multihulls have found their home here and that is particularly true for this Show, “les Occasions du Multicoque et du Refit.” In the harbour area, a travel lift, which is 12 metres wide with a potential lifting capacity of 200 tonnes, has been adapted to take boats with two or three hulls into and out of the water. There is a business cluster of thirty specialist firms, which means this exceptional location has become the home of the refit sector in the Mediterranean.

Around thirty second-hand boats are expected to line up in the harbour entrance at the foot of the brand new ‘ONIRIA’ aquarium. This year, alongside the Show, the organisers will be setting up a forum dedicated to jobs in the boating sector. This initiative aims to meet the needs of this thriving market, which has generated a huge demand for human resources.
This is another opportunity for us to get together to share our passion for yachting and the sea.
