The Yachting Festival will host an eclectic range of boats of nearly 650 boats each year. These boats are sailing or motor, monohull or multihull, hard or semi-rigid hull. 

Invited to the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022, the Pilot Saloon 48e is the latest concept of its builder, which will be presented at this prestigious international show dedicated to yacthing.The Pilot saloon 48e is a unique concept: built around an idea of Henri Wauquiez with a carbon fiber mast and a powerful hull.

The new Pilot Saloon 48e combines an elegant design with very high performance: A sail area upwind of 104 square meters, a short draft of 1.8m and a maximum speed of 15 knots.

The Pilot Saloon 48th builds on a long tradition of engineering, design and construction excellence, beginning with the first Pilot Saloon that made history. 

Built in 1965 at the La Rochelle shipyard, Wauquiez has built nearly 2,300 sailboats. This artisanal strength is a work done with passion and professionalism.

Finally, the Pilot Saloon 48e represents something far greater than a simple sailboat; it is a representation of all that Wauquiez stands for and strives to accomplish, an old world craftsmanship and a revisited French design.
