The new Antibes Yachting Shop opened at the end of June, very close to the port. “Port Vauban in Antibes is the largest harbour in the Mediterranean, and an important yachting hotspot,” said Anissa Mediouni, CEO of Engel & Völkers Yachting, on the strategic choice of location. “The Côte d’Azur is particularly important for the yachting industry as it attracts yachting enthusiasts from across the world, and offers docks and boat moorings for large yachts“. The services offered by the Engel & Völkers Yachting team in Antibes include the brokerage and charter of yachts, as well as managing new constructions and refits. Engel & Völkers is registering growing interest in yachting, especially in Europe and the USA. “The charter segment is set to be particularly important for the future development of the superyacht industry overall,” said Anissa Mediouni, explaining: “There was record demand for superyachts last year, and the trend for 2016 is also looking extremely promising.
