Monaco Marine develops new shipyard in La Seyne-sur-Mer

Refit specialist Monaco Marine has announced an agreement with the port authority of Toulon and the Var region to redevelop the Bois Sacré shipyard site near La Seyne-sur-Mer, France.

Previously used by Normed shipyards, which closed their doors in the 1980s, this new Monaco Marine shipyard will have a total area of 30,000 square metres. The main area will accommodate motor and sailing yachts from 10m to 60m, while another part of the site will be dedicated to multihull yachts. Covered areas will include 4,000 square metres of warehouse space and 570 square metres of workshops.

According to Michel Ducros, the founder and president of the Monaco Marine group: 'This project will supplement our range of services for the yachting market. We regard the Bois Sacré site of La Seyne as a natural extension of our current network in this strategic part of the Mediterranean basin,' he added. 'By redeveloping the Bois Sacré site, we are taking part in the development that is already underway, adding to the momentum of local projects.'

The project, costing €16 million in public and private funding, will create 40 direct jobs and another 100 indirect ones. Completion is scheduled for the second quarter of 2015. The Bois Sacré yard will join the group's six other shipyards, which between them host more than 3,000 yachts per year.
