The redevelopment of Port Vauban at Antibes may be looking a bit messy currently, but from the rubble will emerge state-of-the-art buildings and services to the tune of €135 million.

The new International Yacht Club of Antibes (IYCA) building and Quay Camille Rayon are scheduled for inauguration in September 2022. The IYCA will include a helipad and lounge, top-class facilities and entertainment areas, and catering with a 700-square-meter terrace on the upper floors.

“The new Camille Rayon quay will be equipped with relaxation areas dedicated to crew. The shaded areas will allow them to organize barbecues, practice their sports activities in the open air, carry out daily repairs such as welding or light mechanical work, and access private storage areas,” says Pauline Boniface, Port Vauban PR Manager. “Guests can also take advantage of private access (ISPS), a concierge service, VIP pontoons, loan of electric vehicles, as well as event and catering facilities.” A crew center entirely dedicated to IYCA crew will include a lounge, a fitness room, a gym, and adjoining changing rooms.
