This year, Nautic Paris Boat Show represented a really great opportunity for Suzuki. The Japanese company has, in fact, not only exhibited its entire range of outboards but it has also told operators and visitors its numerous projects in support of boating.
First of all, the so-called Nautic Street Fishing, of which the Japanese brand was a main sponsor at the last Paris Boat Show: a urban “no kill” fishing competition (which thus envisaged the release of fish in water), organized by French Touch Fishing and Union Des Pêcheurs De Paris.
The location were the seven kilometres of quay along the“rive gauche” of the Seine, which hosted 300 competitors divided in three different categories: scratch, women and junior. The species valid to gain scores were pikes, perches, cat fish, salmon, chubs and barbus fish.
But, during Nautic, Suzuki was also at the side of Stéphane Mifsud, the current recordman in static apnea (11 minutes and 35 seconds), dynamic apnea with no fins (131 m) and dynamic apnea with fins (213 m) and it collaborated to the realisation of two conferences the champion took on Sunday 4th December and Monday 5th, entitled “L’Odyssée Bleue de Stéphane Mifsud“, where he told his activity since 2015 until today.
Moreover, on December 9th, during the press conference taken at its stand, Suzuki announced its new partnership with Groupama Team France (in the photo on the left, by Eloi Stichelbaut). Suzuki, in fact, supports the boat and team which will be involved in Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series, the races which will lead the French team and the other competitors to compete with the America’s Cup holders in the final of next summer, in the waters of Bermuda, Caribbean.
Of course, Suzuki took the opportunity to exhibit its four-stroke outboards: 13 models, from the lightest Suzuki DF2.5 – the lightest outboard provided with endothermic engine available on the market-to Suzuki DF300AP, the best of the range and not only in terms of performances. A wide offer based on a high number of engine blocks, all conceived as high-quality performing units. Finally, Suzuki also presented its new binnacles with mechanic controls, available in single or double version.
