ÉTAPLES MARINA:                                                                                   BLUE FLAG AT TOP OF THE MAST

Port de plaisance_modifié-1WEB

The Étaples European Blue Flag marina welcomes nearly 250 boats a year in berths, 22 of which are reserved for stop-overs, in an ideal environment and with quality services available to boaters.

Brand new services…

Coupled with a significant lift capacity (a Roulev with a capacity of 130 tonnes) and nearby local know-how as regards construction, ship repair and deck fittings, the new careening area (fully restructured in terms of both environmental standards of infrastructure and services offered) constitutes an appreciated work area for boaters and Étaples fishermen but equally for numerous users: collection and treatment of careening effluent, waste recovery and sorting, secure access system, water and energy saving, land overwintering facility, etc.

The Département of Pas de Calais and the town of Étaples have also joined forces to develop a new harbour master’s office able to worthily welcome local and passing boaters: meeting area, showers, tourist information point, terrace, cultural area.
