There is a lot of information that is unknown at the moment, for example, the equipment and of course, real pictures of the yacht.
The catamaran market is exploding at the moment, but the competition is very fierce.
Lagoon, Fountaine-Pajot, Leopard (Robertson & Caine), Aquila, ALVA and the one at the top of the SUNREEF pyramid are growing.
The brokers at Ita Yachts Canada are of course on the lookout.
