Races and watersports events

Major races and other top water sports events traditionally exhibit next to the yachts and the Scène Nautic, the nerve centre of the Show, where crew presentations or talks on nautical themes are held.

As you stroll through these aisles you might very well bump into some of the great awe-inspiring skippers and to participate in the radio vacations of these adventurers at sea, broadcasted live from the Scène Nautic!

Trendy sports, dinghies and paddling worlds

The Nautic Spot is the Show's central village, which spotlights fun sports like surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding, skiff sailing, canoeing-kayaking, wakeboarding, waterskiing…

Many animations spaces are waiting for the visitors: a large 700 sqm pool, a podium, a giant screen, an artificial wave, and even this year an indoor beach !

Anyone can take a short introductory course in the different watersports proposed on the pool: stand up paddle boarding, canoeing-kayaking, wakeboarding, or watch demonstrations by professionals. The second leg of the Nautic SUP Paris Crossing, the world's biggest Stand Up Paddle boarding race, takes place on the pool too. An occasion to see the top riders battling it out during the Show!  

>> For the second year in a row, the Nautic Beach awaits you with many surprises, including events and initiations organized by the French Tennis and Handball Federations.

Solar and electric area

In partnership with the French Association for the Electric Boat (AFBE), the Nautic has created a special area that brings together boats and solar and electric energy products to showcase the latest innovations.

An Award of the electric propulsion boat of the year will be be handed out by the AFBE on the Nautic Stage (Scène Nautic). The winner will be elected by the visitors of the Show who will have been able to vote on the booth of the solar and electric boats, on the one hand, and by the jury on the other hand. The jury will be staffed by a member of the French Nautical Industries Federation (FIN), the president of the AFBE and a specialised journalist.

Publishing and Media

This sector brings together specialist publishers and the most emblematic maritime bookstores. You can find magnificent books, stories and photos based on the world of watersports.

Insurance and Credit

All sailors dream of owning their own boat. At the Nautic, you can discover all the ways to become the sole owner on board at a lower cost: rental with purchase option, classic credit, leasing, management-lease, boat club...

Insurance is also covered by a wide offer, depending on the use and value of the boat. Find out more about the full range of financial services available in France, the opportunity to find out more and to realise a new project! 

Ports and marinas

Marinas are at the heart of the economic and tourist activity of the coast. They provide all the services such as maintenance, security and supply, which are essential to boaters.

The port sector welcomes equipment manufacturers and service providers who offer solutions to both ports and yachtsmen.

The direct proximity of the ports and marinas in Hall 1 makes it easier to exchange information and to process orders.

River tourism

River tourism is on the rise among visitors to the Nautic! Exploring the canals, fjords and rivers is an accessible and always very popular leisure activity, everywhere in Europe. Usually requiring no specific permit, boat driving is easy and fun, while the boats themselves have made considerable progress in terms of design, comfort and eco-safety. You will be able to appreciate that by visiting the last electric barge of the Canalous.

The family visitors of the Nautic appreciate the opportunity to discover a region on the move, like at sea! 

Location & Tourism

A large number of boat rental companies exhibit during the Nautic, offering the widest range of services in a single location. From weekends in Brittany to holidays in the Mediterranean, the Atlantic Islands, the Caribbean or Polynesia, rental professionals offer visitors all-inclusive packages for cruises in complete serenity on all the seas of the globe !

This sector is also witnessing a boom in the shared economy, and rental offers between individuals or in co-navigation are developing... The coastal regions or iconic marinas are also well represented and come to the Nautic with local partners to promote their territory as a gateway to water sports. 

The digital at the Nautic

Like the economy as a whole, the rise of new cooperative behaviours is also affecting boating.

To highlight this creativity and the new services offered, Nautic brings these services together in a dedicated area, to enable start-ups in the digital economy to meet the sector's leaders and funders.

A new way of thinking about the sea that has the huge advantage of making it accessible to all ages and budgets!

Cancellation of the Nautic 2020

Dear exhibitors,

It is with great disappointment that we have to confirm the cancellation of the Nautic 2020. You will find the official press release (in French) online.

We have worked to the end to obtain permission to hold a show that meets the expectations and needs of as many people as possible, including visitors. Many of you supported us during this process and we sincerely thank you for it.

Our entire team will remain focused on the months to come, and then those that will lead us to the Nautic 2021, the one, we hope, of the post-Covid era.

Beyond the job of event organiser, we know that we share with many of you a passion for the sea and its activities, which are an essential part of our lives. So... see you soon!
