Apparently, in the late 1940's Breguet was working on an amphibian flying boat to replace Catalinas in Aeronavale service.
Here are some pictures and stats:

Powerplant: 2 x Gnome-Rhône 14-R5 (1590 hp) or Bristol Hercules-100 (1700 hp) or French-built Junkers-Jumo-211 (1550 hp)
Wingspan: 30.428 m
Wing area: 100 m²
Length: 21.0775 m
Height: 8.6 m
Max speed: 325 km/h
Max speed at 2700 m: 392 km/h
Cruising speed: 278 km/h
Curb weight: 8988 kg
Gross weight: 17000 kg

Eventually this project was abandoned in favor of Nord N.1400 Noroit.
