When Port Pierre Canto opened for business in 1964/1965, it made history as the first leisure boat marina in France and became a catalyst for marina development in the region. From the outset, it attracted the most demanding customers in the Mediterranean and aimed to offer high levels of service. In the same spirit, the City of Cannes – its current owner/operator – has sought to renew facilities in order to meet the highly discerning needs of superyacht owners and crews, now and in the future.

In a two-phase project, Marinetek delivered Heavy Duty concrete pontoons in a newly designed marina basin. All units were manufactured in Marinetek’s Latvia factory and feature hardwood decking and a special mooring cleat fixing system that allows for universal adjustment. The pontoon system offers excellent life cycle costs and can be reconfigured if necessary in the future in order to accommodate even larger superyachts.
