At Zodiac, there's a lot to see, with the Medline 7.5 m, its XXL saloon and its large rear sunbathing area ideal for sunbathing.

Zodiac is exhibiting its N-Zo (680 and 700), with high freeboards and a deep hull, a design that stands out. The Medlines are on board with the 580 and 7.5 m. These pretty touring boats each have a rear sunbathing area and an XXL square for the 7.5.

The Open 6.5, a fishing type, is halfway between the Medline and the semi-professional "baroud" versions of the Pro 5.5 and 7. A wide choice of options allows all customizations.

On the Bombard side, the Sunrider 650 offers the best quality/price ratio on the market in the 6.5 m segment. The Sunrider 700 is exposed alongside the 650 and is distinguished by a large sunbathing area. The site also features two Explorers, off-road versions - diving, fishing, hunting - up to 7 metres in length and 16 passengers, for a reasonable price.

It is accompanied by a Classic equipped with a 50 horsepower Mercury.
