General Information

Cruising Distances Pyramid:
Road Travel Times Pyramid:
Town: Cogolin
Summary: 

Located right at the heart of the Gulf of Saint Tropez, the Marines de Cogolin is one of the largest marinas in the South of France and French Riviera with more than 1,600 berths, of which the majority are privately leased (i.e. they are proprietarily at the disposal of lease holders who own shares in the port). This is therefore essentially a residential port, but it is also a highly sought location to moor for a few nights during the season, as the marina is located in one of the most popular cruising destinations in the world.

 

There are many critics of the aesthetic nature of the marina’s buildings. Unlike its adjacent neighbour to the North, Port Grimaud which purposefully imitated typical Provençal architecture in its construction, the marina of Cogolin’s buildings are typical of a wave of architectural design of the 1970s which sought to be innovative. The result is a contemporary, out of time, scenery you can observe today in the harbour.

 

The vast Marines de Cogolin is devided into four basins all under the administration of the Port Office (Capitainerie) located on the central jetty. These basins are:

  • The Brigantine Basin to the North
  • The Cascadelle Basin to the West, the inner part of the marina
  • The Galiote Basin to the South, East of the shipyard
  • The Public Port and short stay berths next to the port office

 

90% of the “private” berths in the marina (1,150 out of 1,280 berths precisely) are destined to boats ranging from 8 m to 12.5 m. The dimensions of the moorings are the ones specified in the initial design of the port’s layout in 1968, when boats were much narrower than they are nowadays and consequently, some may find these berths too narrow for their modern beamy boats. For instance, 12.5 m berths have a 3.75 m width, which by modern boat constructor standards is not wide enough for 12 m boats but better suited to 10 m boats. Though the area near Saint Tropez has a reputation for attracting the largest yachts, Cogolin and its marina only count 19 yacht berths, or in other terms, 19 berths (1.5% of the marina’s quays) where yachts over 24 m in length overall can moor. The proportion of berth sizes in the neighbouring Port Grimaud is approximately the same. This is partly a reason why yacht berths in the Gulf of Saint Tropez are particularly coveted.

 

The Marines de Cogolin offer a wide range of the facilities boats and their owners need while using the port’s berths: round the clock security, fresh water and electricity supplied throughout the marina, a fuelling quay, many parking spaces, toilets and shower blocks in different areas of the port, a tennis court, etc. The shipyard has travelifts for boats and yachts from 40T to 150T. For the users comfort and safety, the Marines de Cogolin have been equipped with CCTV since 2009. You will find the marina has a large variety of shops, restaurants and services to meet the needs of all boat owners, residents and holiday makers who stay in this quiet yet vast harbour of the Gulf of St Tropez.

Approaches: The marina is conspicuous with its buildings and those of adjacent Port Grimaud, at the centre of the Gulf of Saint Tropez. Both marina entrances face each other from either side of the river Giscle (which leads to the very small Port Cogolin). The Marines de Cogolin’s entrance is to the South of the river.
