Starclass Yacht TrScreen shot 2013-11-12 at 14.29.52ansport has introduced a new destination on the Cote d’Azur following increased demand from yacht owners wanting their vessels to be shipped to or from the region.

The Monaco-based company says that, until a few months ago, the closest port Starclass served was Genoa.

“We were welcomed by the Port authorities of Nice to use their port as our new mainport in the Riviera,” says Starclass owner Jan te Siepe. “The Port authorities and our Nice shipping agent, Mathez, provide us the full cooperation and make us feel like at home in this beautiful boutique Port.”

The Port of Nice is located just 15 minutes away from the Nice Cote d’Azur International Airport and within walking distance of the city’s main tourist attractions. Mathez can arrange a guarded yacht berth in the Port of Nice while waiting for the carrier.

Starclass Yacht Transport operates a monthly transport service for yachts between Scandinavia and the Mediterranean in cooperation with exclusive booking agents. Other easy to reach mainports served by Starclass in the Mediterranean are Gibraltar, Valencia, Malta, Split and Istanbul.
