Assessment of the 2019 boat shows and market trends
2019 is coming to an end, it's time to take stock of the boat shows in France and elsewhere!
Highly anticipated events every year, boat shows welcome a considerable number of visitors and exhibitors from all over the world every year. All boat enthusiasts therefore find themselves at these various privileged events perfect for considering the purchase of a boat. All kinds of boats are exhibited both docked and afloat: motor boats, sails, semi-rigid... and it's sometimes possible to try out some of the boats exhibited afloat.
Usually during boat shows special offers are proposed by the professional exhibitors but this is not the only interest of these events. World boat shows are also an opportunity to make contacts in the boating world near you.
Logi Service, for example, is used to frequent contact with yachtsmen looking for a drop-off point for sale or rent in Port Grimaud with mooring or at least close to the sea. This is why we are always on the lookout at boat shows in France, Europe and elsewhere to keep up with the latest trends.

As you will have understood, yachting represents a significant factor of dynamism for the tourist coastal areas.
Whether in Port Grimaud, Saint Tropez or in the other towns of the French Riviera, yachtmen are numerous and most of the people who wish to buy a house, a villa, a second home, an apartment or simply to rent a stay or a holiday will inevitably head for a property close to the sea.
Do you feel like sailing and mooring in Port Grimaud?
Sun, boats, seaside accommodation: the alliance of complete happiness!
From small boats to yachts and sailing, more and more people are turning to the pleasures of boating and are moving closer to the French Riviera, which is proving to be a popular area for many yachtsmen to spend their holidays or settle down for good.
The French Riviera, with its 2788 hours of sunshine per year, remains the prerogative of sea lovers, of those who wish to acquire a property and forget the greyness.
Due to the increase in boat owners and the rise in sales and/or purchases of real estate in the region, Port Grimaud has become an increasingly popular destination for yachting enthusiasts.
As the largest marina on the French Riviera, Port Grimaud is swarming with offers for the sale or rental of waterside accommodation, sometimes with direct moorings: very practical for combining an idyllic living environment with a passion for yachting.
A dream destination for French and foreigners alike, the Port Grimaud is a popular destination for seasonal rentals or for the acquisition of houses, villas or apartments near Grimaud, Saint Tropez or Sainte Maxime.
Imagine the happiness of waking up in an exceptional place and seeing your boat at the end of your private pontoon, sailing at sea or along the 7 canals, and coming back to moor your boat right in front of you!
This is what the private marina of Port Grimaud is privileged to offer: houses or villas with mooring, fishermen's houses, apartments, duplexes with sea view, the choice is yours!
It's moreover one of the rare ports in France that offer the possibility of acquiring a ring as a property.
The architect François Spoerry, himself a lover of the sea, was a visionary in creating this marvel, turned towards the sea.
It's thus necessary to note that the real estate market of the region as the nautical industry does not know the crisis. On the contrary, it is on the rise.
Boat shows have enabled the English, Germans and Dutch to discover many ports on the Var coast, such as Port Grimaud. The latter have not hesitated to invest in real estate following the purchase of their boat to enjoy the joys of the Mediterranean.
If you live in Port Grimaud and wish to sell or rent your house or apartment, it's also an excellent way to meet several exhibitors in a short time to offer them the sale of your boat.
Boat owners from all over the world as well as Parisians are particularly fond of the lake city for its colourful facades, charming alleyways, canals, beaches, houses and apartments with moorings.
The Gulf of Saint Tropez, although being essentially touristic, attracts as Port Grimaud every year many French, European and foreign visitors. Port Grimaud, nicknamed the Provencal Venice of the Var, classified as a 20th century heritage site, is a setting in which each house is favoured by a land access and a quay for mooring your boat.
Our real estate agency is waiting for you in the heart of this beautiful place of the French Riviera to propose you ads of sale and rent in correlation with your desires of boat. Contact us without waiting and take advantage of our proposals.
