La Ciotat Shipyards launched the construction phase of a brand new activities zone in 2019 hosting companies specialized in the refit and maintenance of yachts. This project is driven by a dedicated subsidiary LCS Yachting Village and carried out on behalf of Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropole. The objective is to consolidate a genuine pole of expertise in the immediate proximity of the port zone and as close as possible to the ships. This new zone will integrate a landscaped area. Approximately twenty companies were selected and will be able to relocate onsite by the end of 2020.
A further 8 000 square metres dedicated to refit activities
The premises have been thought of for hosting workshops, storage and office spaces.
A genuine pole of expertise
Companies have been selected for their exceptional savoir-faire specific to the yachting industry.
A complete cluster in La Ciotat
LCS Yachting Village will provide complementary services to those provided by companies already on the site.
The construction has been launched in the 4th quarter of 2019 and will be run in two phases:
Construction of an 8 000 square metres area for refit activities delivered by the end of the year. This phase will then be completed by the revamping of the « Transit » shed.
