Unhappy Goiot Sliding doors

Iíve a 2 year old Nautitech 46 with a Goiot double sliding saloon door which fails to lock and even latch in the open or closed position. I donít think the upper latches ever married up with the slots in the frame but now the locking mechanisms link rod has become separated from the spring loaded upper latch. Iíve been told by the agents of Nautitech in Martinique , (I bought her second hand) that the only place in the Med that I can get the warranty work done is in Port Camargue.S France. Iíd dearly like the work done closer to where Iím cruising in Sardinia and Sicily. If anyone has had similar issues or knows someone that can help repair or replace these doors. Iíd really appreciate it.
It seems neither Goiot or Nautitech will deal directly with owners and only through the original selling agents who are often impossible to contact and/or disinterested in dealin with post sales problems especially with 2nd owners!

Re: Goiot Sliding doors

It sounds like they've cornered you into the choice of fighting with Nautitech or sailing to the west. It's too finely appointed a boat (Gorgeous, I might say) to modify the bad design/installation to your liking.

There are internet dealers for Goiot hatch parts. Is the problem such that you could repair the latches with new parts?

Re: Goiot Sliding doors

Hi tkeithlu, you’ve got the idea! If I could get the parts I might be able to get the yard to fit them. Of course a chat with Goiot technical team would be ideal. Do you have a link to Goiot parts or should I try Googling. Glad you like my choice of cat. ! It ticks almost all the boxes but some workmanship could be a tad better. But you get what you pay for.
