The shipyards

Formerly an industrial site specializing in the manufacture of oil tankers, the shipyards of La Ciotat, renamed La Ciotat Shipyards, have been converted into a nautical pole of international dimension whose activity is the maintenance, upkeep and repair of large yachts. Today, La Ciotat Shipyards, is the leading site for refit and repair of Super Yachts.

Some figures

More than 150 yachts, some of which exceed 100 metres in length, are welcomed each year on the site thanks to the presence of numerous port infrastructures. Their number and size are constantly evolving.

La Ciotat Shipyards also has the management of the Old Port whose capacity amounts to 418 berths in the sea and 216 places on land.
