The new service facility of Monaco Marine La Ciotat opened its doors to megayachts at the end of April 2007. Vincent Larroque, director of the shipyard, is proud to report a very active first 9 months of activity, with no less than 25 hauling out, and a very tight schedule for the beginning of 2008.
The site covers a total area of 35.000 square meters, with 2 200 square meters dedicated to offices and workshops. The 33.000 square meters concrete apron allows to haul out up to fourteen yachts of a size between 40 and 80 meters+. The 2000 ton Yachtlift® is positioned sideways against the quay feeding a large transfer and storage system on rails, giving maximum versatility and speed of operation. A yacht can be lifted and transferred to its berth in four hours.
