JFA Yacht will be present at the international multihull boat show held in Lorient (France) from 18 to 22 April 2012

JFA Yachts, based in Concarneau since 1993, builds and refits yachts from 20 to 60 meters, motor yachts or sailboats, monohull or multihull. 
This show, dedicated to multihulls, is another opportunity to address this rapidly growing market for sizes greater than 25m. Today, JFA has got indeed appropriate
infrastructures (pontoon, lifting devices and halls), highly versatile skills and, most of all, a recognized expertise in those sizes of boats.
The first catamaran built by JFA measures 85' and was delivered in 2004. In 4 years, this boat has done a very complete circumnavigation from Concarneau to the Mediterranean, via Panama and New Zealand, with lots of stopovers in the Caribbean or the Pacific Islands.
In the coming weeks, JFA will launch the VPLP 110'. Built out of carbon, this exceptional catamaran is the largest cruising catamaran in composite built in the world. 
JFA is finishing off the refit / commissioning of Mashua Bluu, a 95' catamaran out of aluminium.
Lastly, with the "Long Island" range, JFA is positioned on the semi-custom catamaran market. The construction of the 85' Long Island, first copy of the range, has just begun. By her size and her freeboard, this catamaran is designed to sail far and in the greatest comfort. The hulls and the bottom of the nacelle will be made of aluminum while the deck and superstructures will be made of composite.
Thus, JFA's current event bears a highly "multihull" mark.
The yard intends to establish itself as a leader of the multihull Superyacht market.
