As the newest IGY marina that caters exclusively to the world’s largest vessels, we can accommodate Megayachts and Superyachts up to 595’ (180m). We are the perfect destination for short- or long-term stays being ideally located near Montpellier and Carcassonne and centrally positioned between the Côte d’Azur and Barcelona.

Once comfortably settled, we ask that you visit our marina office to check-in. The staff will quickly register you and answer any questions.

If a slip is occupied after 10:30 am on the day of your scheduled departure, an additional night's dockage will be charged to your account.

We will do our absolute best to accommodate your requests whenever possible. In most cases, if your slip is available prior to 4:30 pm on the day of your arrival, or after 10:30 am on the day of your departure, we will allow you to remain in the slip at no additional charge. Prior arrangements must be made with the marina office for early arrival or delayed departure in order to avoid unnecessary charges.

Temporary Slips

In the event an early check-in and/or late check-out is unable to be accommodated in your current slip, we will try to accommodate by making another slip available until such time your slip is available or you are ready to depart the marina.

In the event a temporary slip is made available to you, and you do not relocate the vessel, the marina reserves the right to charge you two times (2x's) the original daily rate for each night you occupy the temporary slip.

This is necessary as IGY Sète Marina operates at full occupancy at times and failure to relocate the vessel could negatively affect other guests.

IGY Sète Marina Rules

To make your stay with us more enjoyable, the following set of guidelines should be followed. These are merely suggested rules of etiquette and regulations to make the Marina and its facilities more enjoyable for all customers.

  1. Do not leave garbage on the docks or common areas to be picked up. Garbage should be bagged and tied and then properly placed in designated receptacles, or be placed in the garbage truck, not loosely scattered or abandoned.

  2. Oils and fuels should be disposed of properly and not in Marina trash cans. Please ask for assistance when disposing of oils, fuels, or chemicals. Your concern for the environment helps.

  3. Try not to introduce any effluents into the Marina lagoon. Use holding tanks if possible.

  4. Do not attempt to turn on your own water and electricity. Please have a dock attendant provide the service. Using pliers or screwdrivers will damage the equipment and you will be charged. It is suggested that you read meters (if applicable) along with our dock attendant to ensure accuracy.

  5. Anyone caught taking water from another yacht's tap shall be responsible for the entire water cost of the metered yacht. Please use your own water.

  6. Keep power cords and water hoses in a neat and orderly fashion so that no one will trip in the dark or while carrying objects.

  7. Please wash sails on lawn areas where water outlets and drying spaces are available, or do it aboard your yacht.

  8. When marking anchor chains with paint, use paper or cardboard beneath your chain to keep wet paint off the docks and other customers' shoes.

  9. When cleaning dinghies, make sure you rinse debris and growth off of the docks when finished.

  10. Lock the vessel when leaving it unattended.

  11. Lock your dinghies and outboard at night.

  12. Try to keep excessive noise down after 10:00 pm.

  13. Barbecue and cooking on the docks is prohibited. Barbecue and cooking should be done on board in suitable equipment and self contained. Any other way is dangerous and frowned upon. Kindly clean up after yourself when finished. Charcoal ash and debris are not to be disposed of into the lagoon.

  14. If bright deck lights or spot lights are to be used at night, avoid pointing them at nearby boats, especially down or into their cabins.

  15. Pets need to be kept on a leash or in an acceptable carrying case. Please be sure to clean up after your pets. Owners will be responsible for any damages caused by unattended pets.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
