Marina Yacht Berths – Leases for Sale and Rentals

The enduring popularity of yachting makes it increasingly difficult to find somewhere to keep your boat in some popular locations. The South of France, the Balearics, Croatia and Northern Italy are still probably the most sought after areas for owners to keep their yachts.  Power To Sail provide a full service to yacht owners who are looking for marina berths for sale at competitive prices in Marina Berths sales in the south of France and particularly in Port Vauban Antibes and Mandelieu La Napoule, France, Italy and beyond.  Although rental berths in the Côte d’Azur are difficult to find, in Italy, Spain, and the rest of Southern France they are generally available.  In France currently we have opportunities in Port Vauban, Antibes and Mandelieu La Napoule – Please contact us for further details.

Leases for Sale and Rentals

When buying a berth, it is the lease you are purchasing which typically will have 5 years to run in French and Spanish ports and anything up to 50 years in some Italian ones.  In France new contracts are now available in some ports which have leases of ‘Garantie d’Usage’.  These are similar to the outdated and outgoing ‘Acte d’Ammodiation’ and are far less likely to be traded speculatively as in the past 20 years using the old ‘Acte’s’.   The purchase price in some French ports used to appear disproportionate to the port rental rates.  However, in the last few years prices have fallen to a much more realistic level.

Currently we have a number of berths available in ports such as Port Vauban, Antibes and Port Mandelieu La Napoule.  We also have listings for marina berths for sale and rental in several prestigious developments, including Marina di Loano in Italy near Savona and Marina di Aeroporto in Genova, Italy.  Port Vauban remains popular as a charter destination as well as for owners and yacht crews.

If you are a berth owner and you wish to offer your marina berth for sale or rental, please contact us with the details and we will provide you with an estimate of the market price.  We can then immediately contact a number of clients who are registered with us and who are looking for a berth.
