The Mediterranean is considered a favourable area for the practice and development of yachting. Despite all these common assets, the Mediterranean presents a noticeable imbalance on the two shores in the yachting aspect with:

  • A mature market in the North, and an emerging market in the South;
  • An very dense implantation of marinas on the North shore and scattered marinas on the South shore.

This study, carried out by the Marseille Provence Chamber of Commerce and Industry lists the main nautical centres of four countries on the Mediterranean: Spain, France, Morocco and Tunisia, and analyses their functioning and their effect on the tourist economy. It aims to give a detailed view of the potential they represent, through their main projects, the synergies that they develop between tourism and yachting and of their consideration of sustainable development in their approach to yachting.
