The port of Cap d’Ail is located on the border between Cap d’Ail and Monaco.
The privileged situation of the port of Cap d’Ail allows you on one hand to join Monaco in a few minutes and the other hand to benefit from the connection Nice-Aéroport by helicopter ( flight: 6 minutes), the heliport of Monaco is at 3 minutes from the port of Cap d’Ail. The port of Cap d’Ail spreads out over 47,000m2 of water protected by long dams and can give mooring to 253 boats, moreover it is able to accommodate boats of up to 80 metres.
Port Cap d’Ail is often thought to be one of Monaco’s harbours. This is probably due to its proximity to the principality and the fact it is an extension of the reclaimed land and Monaco district of Fontvieille. Cap d’Ail harbour is in France, right on the Western border of Monaco, so much that the only way to drive into the marina is through the principality.
Cap d’Ail harbour is a charming alternative for most Monaco residents to its neighbouring saturated ports of Fontvieille and Port Hercules. The harbour was originally designed to moor boats from 6 m to 20 m Length overall. Through the years the outer basin was rearranged to tend to the needs of larger yachts. This basin was renamed “Bassin d’Honneur” and is now the home of superyachts, with 50 m, 55 m and 60 m berths. This contrasts with rest of the berths in the port, which are mostly for boats up to 20 m in length. Since Cap d’Ail is an extension of the land Monaco reclaimed on the sea in the 1970s, the depth in the harbour is substantial compared to most French Riviera ports which in most cases only can provide up to 3.5 m depth. Berths in the Bassin d’Honneur have 20 m depth.
Cap d’Ail harbour has a range of port facilities to satisfy most boat and yacht owners. It has a fuelling quay next to the Capitainerie at the entrance, a ship chandler, two hotels, restaurants, and of course the Navimarine shipyard. For food and provisioning, the Monaco shopping centre is just a 5 minute walk away.
Cap d’Ail harbour is currently implementing new CUNCA directives which affect berth ownership rights. This requires a little more caution than usual when acquiring the right to use a berth. For advice and any further information, just call Mr. Berth.
