URGENT - recall campaign for defective Goiot escape hatches installed on most catamarans

This is a very rare initiative launched today by the major catamaran brands such as Bali, Catana, Fountaine-Pajot, Lagoon and Nautitech.

It turns out that certain models of escape hatches from the company Goiot System, installed on the inner sides of the hulls, are proving to be defective. These hatches, delivered before September 2018, present a risk of glazing detachment that could jeopardize navigation safety.

In this context, Goiot System has implemented a vast generalised recall campaign among the various manufacturers on the market, concerning the hatches delivered before September 2018.

Owners of catamarans of the different brands concerned are invited to contact their dealers or after-sales service as soon as possible to check if their catamaran is equipped with the defective hatches.
