New pier for catamarans in Port Saint-Louis du Rhône
About two weeks ago, the commune of Port Saint-Louis du Rhône inaugurated a new pontoon dedicated to multihull yachts. The pontoon is 500 meters long and can accommodate up to 45 catamarans.
Its construction took 7 months of work and 1.1 million euros. This project is primarily part of the local yachting policy. In particular, the program includes the creation of a center for large pleasure craft. By the way, the initiative is being implemented with the support of a local state-owned company in charge of managing the port.
The Greek manufacturer of rigid hull inflatable boats Technohull is strengthening its production capacity. The company has launched a new plant in Lavrio.
More than 20 million euros have been invested in the Technohull plant. In addition, the scale of the new plant is impressive, with an area of 12,000 square meters with a reserve of 16,000 square meters.
As a consequence, this capacity will allow Technohull to continue its growth in the luxury boat segment from 25 to 45 feet.

- implementation of best practices for navigation in natural parks,
- exchange of experience in environmental protection,
- support for cross-border sporting events,
- joint promotion of shipping between the two regions,
- information exchange,

There is no doubt that in this way the regions will receive a powerful impetus in the development of the maritime and yachting industry.
