Monaco Marine to open La Seyne-Toulon refit yard in 2018

Monaco Marine to open La Seyne-Toulon refit yard in 2018

French superyacht refit yard Monaco Marine has announced plans to open its seventh Côte d’Azur facility next year.

La Seyne-Toulon will be the site of a 40,000 square metre refit centre, which will open in spring 2018. As the rendering below reveals, the facility will include a travel lift, which will be able to lift yachts measuring up to 55 metres and weighing up to 500 tonnes.

What’s more, a specially built slipway will assist with the hauling out and launching of large multihull superyachts, and a 60 metre humidity- and climate-controlled shed will allow sensitive superyacht refit projects to take place all year round.

The total site capacity is for 28 yachts and Monaco Marine estimates that it will invest €15million in the new state-of-the-art facility, which will place a strong emphasis on sustainability.

In a statement, the yard laid out its long-term vision for the site: “Monaco Marine and La Seyne-Toulon wish to go further in the development of the yachting sector. We are already looking forward to proposing more services and a wider scope of yachts to be refitted. Therefore a public occupation authorisation has already been given to Monaco Marine to pursue its investment on the site to accommodate yachts measuring up to 140 metres by 2019.”

Meanwhile, Monaco Marine is developing an eighth site, situated in Marseille and accommodating yachts up to 140 metres, which is also due to open in 2018.
