The project for the construction of a new marina in Saint-Nazaire, stopped in September 2019, returns to discussion at the initiative of Mayor David Samzoun
Renewal of the marina idea in Saint-Nazaire
Stopped for financial reasons in 2019, the construction of the marina in the city center basin is being resumed.
The elected representative announced that he had received the support of the Greater Seaport of Nantes for a lighter 80 mooring infrastructure at Saint-Nazaire.
This agreement, in principle, has not yet been recorded in any calendar, the Municipality emphasizes, but, nevertheless ...
In addition, the type of management of the remainder of the port remains to be determined.
From Embankment Commerce Quai du Commerce v Petit Mark (Petit Maroc)
Marina design varies in scale and location.
The hypothesis, which was abandoned in 2019, called for the installation of about a hundred rings at Quai du Commerce, near the former submarine base.
The costs of cleaning the site have raised the project price to € 40 million, and the new site envisaged by the project is Quai Demange, on the other side of the pool, in the Petit Maroc area.
It will house 80 boats, moored on pontoons and cutways, with the necessary shore services, reception and sanitary equipment.
Naval targets of Saint-Nazaire
The announcement of the event described comes at a time when the city of Saint-Nazaire is constantly declaring its desire to be a reference point for water sports.
The port particularly welcomed the arrival of the Solitaire du Figaro 2020.
The municipality wants to make the marina a lively place, thanks in part to the availability of pleasure boats.
