  • On the segment of boats over 8m (the segment on which we work), the total number of second-hand boats sold in France were 8055 units (4864 sailing boats and 3191 power boats).

  • In 10 years, the sales on this segment of second-hand boats over 8m increased until 2015 (8278 transactions in 2015) and has known a slight decrease since 2016.

  • Paradoxically, in the last 4 years this slight drop is a sign of good health on the second-hand boat market: the demand for second-hand boats is strong but the “available fleet” is not large enough to meet the demand. As a result, selling prices stabilize, and sometimes even increase a little, which is completely unusual on this market where buyers and sellers have gotten used to seeing the prices decrease mechanically from one year after other.

    Good news for the Breton (and thus for Antipode!), in 2018 Brittany is the French region that recorded the most transactions for second-hand boats, largely ahead of the region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (14629 transactions in Brittany and 11343 on the Côte d’Azur).


  • In 2019, the export sales continue to represent almost half of Antipode’s sales.
