Superyacht infrastructure: Cannes Port Canto back to business?
A recent article published in the French newspaper Nice Matin reported that, according to the Cour d'Appel Administrative de Marseille, the Cannes authorities will be able to start the refurbishment of the International Sporting Yachting Club de la Mer (ISYCM).
The total estimated cost for the refurbishment of the building is euros 20,000,000.
The ruins of the sports complex remained as they were until now...

Since 2002, the City of Cannes has managed Pierre Canto port which has a capacity of 650 boats along 2,200 metres of mooring space.
The notions of a “garden port” and a “clean port” have been central concerns in the large-scale investments made in recent years (revegetation, waste collection centre, underwater works, etc.). These efforts were rewarded by the granting of the highly coveted ‘Pavillon Bleu’ label in 2008.
