Inland gem attracts global custom
Port Mâcon, the largest inland marina in France, is a multi-award winning gem in the heart of the lush Burgundy countryside. Donatella Zucca invited harbour master Cyrille Racca to talk shop.
Located in the municipality of Mâcon, which has been the capital of the Saône-et-Loire region in Burgundy since 1790, Port Mâcon sits between the cities of Beaune and Lyon. Recipients of the Prix du Port de Plaisance Exemplaire for its equipment and the Sceptre d’Or du Développement Durable for its role in developing sustainable tourism, the marina offers all modern services, is home to clubs and associations, and enjoys excellent synergy with the local authorities.
Offering up to 425 berths for vessels up to 25m (82ft) in length at a modern Poralu floating pontoon system, Port Mâcon also benefits from a recently built harbour master’s office, Wi-Fi, video surveillance and a 24-hour credit card enabled fuel dock. It has adequate car parking and the marina and piers are accessed using personal badges. The entire site has been adapted for people with reduced mobility.
