1.1 Definition and scope of the study

A marina can be maritime, river or lake depending on whether it is located on the sea, river or lake. It is reserved for pleasure boats, which may be sailing or motorised. River ports are generally smaller in size, so marinas are more important in terms of activity level

We count in 2020, nearly a thousand marinas, contributing to the tourism and economic development of certain communities and regions. With a national capacity of over 200,000 seats Ports are also increasingly required to respond to the challenges of sustainable development.  

From From 2017 to 2019, the French water sports industry is growing at an average annual rate of 5%, driven in particular by the democratization of the practice The study concerns the operation of marinas (in mainland France only), whose activity represents nearly 11% of the nautical sector.

In France, until 1983, the operation of a port was the exclusive competence of the State. The decentralisation laws of 1983 and 1984 gradually transferred this competence to the local authorities for marinas. The latter choose the management of their ports , under management or concession We then have d marina managers are subject to public service obligations

The company of ports of Morbihan is, for example, the largest operator of marinas in France, with 16 marinas managed in Morbihan
