The Mediterranean season began in May with its statement start for the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes Film Festival. With numerous charters and deliveries this season, our crew have been doing a fantastic job onboard. On the other hand, the girls in the office have been securing berths, arranging car transfers and restaurant bookings for yacht charter guests. We also have the advantage over many yacht and boat owners due to the fact that as a company who deals with suppliers on a daily basis, we know who to contact for your last minute assistance.
Naturally, when thinking about which port to berth your boat in you contemplate which town is the most convenient for you. From party town to small fishing village, the French Riviera has it all. However, that’s not all there is to it. When deciding upon ports in the French Riviera, you must factor in the availability. Honest Marine Services have put together a short guide to the most sought after ports along the Riviera and their antechambers/run offs to help you with your decision. We will take you from the Italian border down the coast towards Marseille.
La Napoule Boat show is back again in full force for its 29th Edition in Mandelieu-La Napoule. From the 11th to the 14th April, more than 300 boats along with 90 exhibitors were showcased in the port. For the third year running, Honest Marine Services partnered with Paturle Nautic Groupe to help prepare boats for the show. This entailed plenty of washdowns, detailing and shammying.
HMS offers two types of tuition: owner’s and crew training. We also offer Greenies the essential day working skills and experience to kick-start their career in the industry, as well as Powerboat 2 and Jet ski tuition. Unlike a course, with HMS you can take as long as you need!
The days are stretching longer and preparations have begun for the Monaco Grand Prix. Winter is long forgotten, but the effects it can have on your boat are not. Honest Marine Services is working through our preseason yacht maintenance checklists. Our priority is to ensure our clients have the best experience when they rejoin us in the French Riviera.
