IYCA future extension proposed

IYCA future extension proposed

The cry goes up regularly: the Côte d'Azur needs new berths for superyachts. Compared to its neighbours, Italy and Spain, the South of France has not seen the creation of superyacht berths for many years now despite increasing demand.

Now, however Port Vauban of Antibes has a new plan that envisages re-organisation of car traffic, creation of parking spaces, new promenades, new developments around the old harbour for shops and restaurants, a new area around the yard with a dry harbour and the long-awaited extension of the famous International Yacht Club d'Antibes (IYCA).

This new plan for the harbour and its environs was presented to coincide with the last Antibes Yacht Show, a presentation with the presence of Camille Rayon, the founder of the IYCA.

The IYCA was one of the first yacht clubs created and dedicated to superyachts, and the future plans, only on paper for the moment, will see an extension of the main jetty, creating new berths and leisure areas. The extension will take place at berth number 1, home of the yacht Kingdom 5KR, and will be extended in place of the current entrance of the harbour.

25 new berths could be created with this project, more than double of the current IYCA's capacity, with two berths for yachts exceeding 200m, 15 for yachts of 90m, four for yachts of 70m and the last four for yachts of 50m.

Although the definitive plans are not complete yet, Antibes has already started the construction of a large underground parking area near the harbour.

Thanks to the IYCA, Antibes is still one of the main harbours in the world for superyachts. With a project like this, she could become again the place to be and be seen.
