Take And Sail - port à sec flottant automatisé en libre service

Although the total number of pleasure boats is increasing regularly, it has become difficult or even impossible to build new marinas: suitable locations have become rare and coastal-town residents are no longer prepared to sacrifice part of the coastline for this type of facility. The problem cannot be resolved by extending existing marinas. Boat buyers can wait several years to obtain a berth (5 years on average in France). A third of boat-purchase applications do not end in a sale due to problems with berths.
