Maintaining the path of excellence

In the rapidly-changing yacht refit industry, La Ciotat Shipyards keeps innovating to maintain and promote the competitiveness of the Refit yard. Based on contributions from market players, we have started an in-depth review of our Strategic development Plan, based on the following 3 pillars:


With more than 15 hectares still available for future development, WE BELIEVE in our capacity to increase significantly the number of boats and companies coming into our yard;



For a sustainable industrial development, WE BELIEVE in the necessity to organize a strong first class maritime Cluster, leveraging the knowledge and skills of existing companies, and favoring the permanent settlement of new talents;


Being a service company, WE BELIEVE that the satisfaction of our end customers is critical for a sustainable competitiveness of the yard. Beyond the natural advantages of our privileged environment, we will therefore investigate new services to make La Ciotat the place one longs to come back to.
