Yachts over 30 meters, overpowered cars, in the midst of controversy over the tax benefits given to the richest, the majority had decided to tax them. Except that two years later, little money goes into the coffers. 10 million euros is what the State hoped for by overtaxing the yachts of French residents.

For luxury vehicles, 30 million euros were expected, but only 15.05 million euros were collected last year. Out of seven vessels affected by the tax, five have not paid.
