Great news for smaller yachts, as La Ciotat Shipyards (LCS) has just announced it is adjusting its reservation policy for the berthing and the dry-docking of those up to 40m, allowing easier access for owners, captains and yacht managers.
While nothing changes for bigger yachts, Jean-Yves Saussol, CEO of La Ciotat Shipyards, underlines that: “It is really more of an evolution than a revolution. We have built our reputation on strong partnerships with renowned shipyards that offer a one-stop-shopping service to their clients and take care of the most complex projects. We have no intention to change these winning partnerships. However, for smaller yachts, the increase of competitive pressure coming from the market has led us to reconsider our offer.”
“Owners and captains of mid-size yachts who do not require major works will now have a more direct access to our facilities,” he contiues. “Being in La Ciotat, they can also benefit from the unique ecosystem of yacht-refit experts that we host”.
In practice, yachts up to 40m will be offered a direct contract with LCS based on public prices appearing on its website for berthing, hauling out procedures, hard-standing and power supply. In case of a dry-docking procedure, La Ciotat Shipyards can take care of the docking plan for an additional fee, unless yachts prefer to manage this on their own.
At the same time, La Ciotat Shipyards has just created five new berths within La Ciotat old harbor for yachts from 30m to 40m. These berths will be used mainly as a complement to the quays of the industrial yard during the refit season, but will be also offered to leisure boaters during the summer season, giving them an opportunity to discover the enchanting surroundings of La Ciotat, just a stone-throw away from the beautiful Calanques NationalPark.
