Berth Ownership: The Benefits Of Using A Berth Specialist
The Western Mediterranean is a popular cruising region and with the ever-evolving world of yachting, securing a mooring can prove difficult in the most popular marinas on the French Riviera. Buying a long-term lease as a yacht owner gives you the opportunity to maximise enjoyment of your yacht during a number of years.
Jo Long from Zen Yachting on the French Riviera offers a range of selected moorings and demonstrates detailed knowledge, trust and transparency so you can opt for her to be your partner during the process of the purchase or the sale.
Why use a Berth Specialist?
Maritime law is quite complicated, where you have to be aware of your rights and your contractual obligations, so if you intend to buy or sell a berth it helps having someone on hand who is a mooring specialist who can ease the process from start to finish. Jo Long is a berth and mooring specialist who is perfectly placed to guide new owners on the French Riviera or owners who are trading up.
“The majority of clients who approach me to buy a berth have chosen Port Vauban specifically and want to be there,” she explains. “I am a specialist at Port Vauban – I know it inside out as I’ve sold berths of varying sizes there. I have close affinity with Port Vauban and an intimate knowledge of the area which is a huge ad-vantage.”
Moorings for sale at Port Vauban
For anyone interested in purchasing a berth in Port Vauban, Jo has three prime berths for sale. The first is a category T2 23.99m x 6m berth in the old port. “It’s a popular area because it’s right against the old wall near the beaches so very tran-quil with parking in front of the boat,” she adds. “You have to go through two security barriers to get there so it’s very secure.”
The second option is a category U berth of 28.99m x 7m, which could be moved anywhere in the port where there is an available berth of that size. “It’s very versa-tile being able to move it wherever you want – obviously you stay there for the dura-tion but you have a choice to begin with,” she explains.
Finally, a category X berth of 43.99m x 10m would suit a discerning mid-range buyer. “It’s the only berth of its size available in the port, the rest have been sold,” adds Jo. “This one is on the Capitainerie quay and can’t be moved.”
As well as Antibes, Jo has berths for sales as other Riviera ports so welcomes enquiries from prospective buyers or sellers.
