REFIT AND MAINTENANCE SHIPYARDS ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA VERSILIA SUPPLY SERVICE PROVIDING THE WORLD’S FINEST YACHTS
It was in 1995 that Michel Ducros, a French businessman, decided to create a yachting marina in Monaco. In fact, as an owner of a Grand Banks yacht, he had been unhappy with his experience as a yachting client on the French coast. With his enthusiastic entrepreneurial spirit he envisioned a new concept for delivering services to yachting clients. He started by imposing a radical change in attitude that would position the client at the centre of the business, employees would wear traditional yachting uniforms and he would raise the range of standards in maritime repair. Monaco Marine was born.
The original idea of creating a network of shipyards took shape. Michel Ducros decided that a collection of shipyards was the only way to offer top notch flexibility and quality. With this kind of network he would be able to offer an exacting professionalism and multiple personalised services. At the end of 1997, the first two shipyards situated at Saint-Laurent-du-Var and Beaulieu-sur-Mer complemented the site in Monaco.
