For three months, we'll be welcoming the Marité to the Port-en-Bessin-Huppain technical area!

Specialized equipment and recognized expertise:

Boat elevator capable of carrying a very heavy load, large technical area, shipyards close to the port, location (when the Marité is not at sea, it is moored in Granville, its home port).

Some features:

Three-masted schooner rig

Overall length 44.90m / width 8m
