The International In-Water Boat Show, the Grand Pavois La Rochelle, will be held from Wednesday 18 to Monday 23 September at the Port des Minimes in La Rochelle. 


Ranked as one of the top 5 international in-water events, the Grand Pavois La Rochelle is considered by professionals to be one of the best boat shows in terms of cost and contacts. Over the years, it has become a key event in the European and global water sports calendar! 


With the presence of more than 800 international brands and with 750 boats exhibited, 300 of which are in-water, the Grand Pavois La Rochelle welcomes more than 80,000 visitors every year. Visitors will enjoy a preview of the new products for 2019/2020 and will be able to test boats at sea before making a purchase. It should also be noted that the trials for the boat of the year by "Voile Mag" and the motor boat of the year by the magazine "Motor Boat" are carried out at the Grand Pavois La Rochelle, which is no coincidence.




Created in 1973, the Grand Pavois La Rochelle is a genuine showcase for the water sports industry and the Atlantic show provides an overview of the sector's economic situation and anticipates the major trends and developments for the coming year.
