Megayacht marina to be built in Sète, France

Oct 4, 2017 by Triton Staff

IGY Marinas and P&O Marinas, a subsidiary of Dubai-based DP World, recently announced a megayacht marina project in Sète, France, with construction to start at the end of the year. Once open, it will offer 12 dedicated megayacht berths for vessels up to 328 feet (100m) with a maximum draft of 23 feet (7m).

The marina will be in the heart of Sète on the Côte d’Azur. It is an official port of entry, ISP-compliant, and has access to restaurants and shops, as well as recreational activities such as watersports, hiking and mountain biking.

“Our customers are well-educated and well-traveled, making it crucial for our brand to continue responding to the demand for more unique facilities and flexible berthing options in the world’s most sought-after destinations,” Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas, stated in a company press release.

According to the company, the agreement includes IGY providing commercial and tourist services, with P&O Marinas providing technical and crew support. The facility will offer electrical facilities, fuel service arrangements, in-slip gray and black water pump-out, high-level security and wi-fi.
