Peters & May are pleased to announce the opening of a new logistics operation in France, based from the super-yacht shipyard at La Ciotat, near Marseilles.
Peters & May is the first logistics company within the shipyard specialising in yacht and marine services. Spearheading this success is Alain Rigaud, Agency Director for Peters & May France. Alain has created a close working relationship with key businesses at La Ciotat, including Monaco Marine, Compositeworks, Southern Spars Europe and H2X. Alain is assisted by Jean Claude Verany and Antoine Pinson.
La Ciotat is perhaps the largest shipyard development in the Western Mediterranean for sailing and power yachts, with an emphasis on super-yachts. The old industrial shipyard has been redeveloped specifically for leisure yachts and includes wet and dry docks with a range of craning facilities for superyachts yachts and large craft up to 2000 tonnes. Each of the yacht repair businesses on site are constructing their own state-of-the-art build, paint and repair facilities that can handle boats in excess of 30 metres.
La Ciotat is ideally located just to the east of Marseilles and within easy sailing distance from Saint Tropez, Nice and Monaco. It is arguably the best working base for large yacht projects on France's South coast.
Peters & May France provides a full range of logistics services for the businesses in the shipyard, including delivery of equipment and support containers, customs clearance and bonded warehousing. This new French office can also manage cargo movements throughout France and is already linked to the many other Peters & May offices and agents around the world.
