This comeback is perfectly understandable : No more troubled wheather for the manufacturer of cruising catamarans , which has announced the annual results in strong rebound ( closure of accounts on August 31 ) .
The group, which was already out of the critical situation at the end of last year, has benefited from its policy of upgrading ( vessels over 40 meters).
However, it is still his medium level range, as Helia 44 ( catamaran of 13,30 meters), which drove growth and resulted in a 6.1% increase in sales , to 40.7 million euros, and its operating profit ( 561 million against 141 million a year ago ) .
As in France ( 20% of sales ) remained more or less flat , Fountaine Pajot primarily benefits its international expansion and now generates 55% of its sales outside Europe. This is especially North America that drove sales (annual billings tripled ) , the Asia-India -Pacific area being remained more contrasting.
