Marseilles Launches Lease Offer for Super Yacht Repairs

Friday, February 08, 2008
The Port of Marseilles Authority has launched a call for tenders for the lease of drydock No 1 and part of wet dock No 7 with the aim of expanding its repair facilities for super yachts. The facilities, which include yard areas and workshops, are aimed at the thriving market for super yachts ranging from 80-120 metres long. Similar deals were concluded with ITM in 2001 - for docks 3, 4, 5 and 6 - and with Sud Moteurs in 2005 for dock 2 and part of berth 7. The remaining part of berth 7 now up for tender is 104m long and 23m wide.

Dock 1 is 171m long, 19.75m wide and has a workshop of 1100sq m as well as a 1950sq m yard. The port authority says the operator will be able to offer services to other types of vessels compatible with the dock's dimensions. The recommended bids are due to be put before the port's administrative board for approval in July this year.
