GRAND PAVOIS – Salon Nautique-Boat Show

A unique example in Europe and almost unique in the world of trade shows, the Grand Pavois Organisation Association has always been governed by professionals at the service of professionals and yachtsmen. As a result of this associative status, GPO has a very strong connection with the professional world of international yachting.

And it is for this reason that the show is always in line with the needs of the French and international market. It highlights the qualities of French, European and world production and it demonstrates the richness and multidisciplinarity of small boatyards which are very likely to choose the Grand Pavois La Rochelle as their annual show.


70% of visitors to the show are keen on water sport activities (boating, fishing, water sports)

44% of them own a boat.

Discovering new products is the main motivation of our visitors and everyone recognises that the main attractions of the show are the presentation of the boats in-water and the thematic spaces.

The Grand Pavois is the meeting place for enthusiasts!

Over the years, the Grand Pavois La Rochelle has become a major event in the international water sports calendar and is one of the top 5 international in-water boat shows.
