Island Global Yachting has opened a megayacht marina in Sète, France.
IGY Sète Marina is located between Barcelona and the Côte d’Azur, and central to cruising destinations such as Barcelona, the Balearic Islands, Cannes, Nice, St. Tropez, Monaco and Sardinia. The Montpellier International Airport is 30 minutes away and a nearby train station hub provides access to inland destinations. Also, the Port du Sète facility is close to several refit yards.
A certified ISPS Port with gated, 24-hour security, the marina features 1,908 feet (582m) of alongside berthing within a protected basin for vessels of up to 590 feet (180m). Facilities include electrical connections capable of providing up to 2,000 amps, in-slip fueling, gray and blackwater pump-out, full vessel concierge, recycling, hazardous waste disposal and wireless internet.
IGY Sète Marina offers berth ownership opportunities, according to a company press release. Berth owners have access to alongside parking, customized storage, fiber-optic internet, and additional security measures such as lighting and CCTV.
The clubhouse, expected to be completed later this year, will house a captain and crew lounge, a fitness center with showers and changing facilities, a wi-fi equipped business center, and a roof-top terrace.
Sète, known as the “Little Venice of the Languedoc” for its intertwined canals throughout the town center, is also known for its festivals, music, art and cuisine. It’s home to a variety of maritime trades and is most famed for its seafood – particularly oysters. IGY Sète Marina provides bicycles, electric scooters and shuttles to encourage those in the yachting industry to explore the town.
