The association “Compagnie des Ports du Morbihan” was conceived in 2012 by the regional government of the Morbihan department to manage and commercialize the regions marinas and to protect its monuments.
In this innovative solution the Compagnie, as a publicly owned organisation, is in charge of the management of the port sites, exercising at the same time the roles of investor and operator.
It underlines the regional governments long term commitment to invest in the future of the marinas and to develop the local economy.
The Compagnie takes on this mission in the service and interest of the local stakeholders, the economic importance of the twelve joined marinas for the Morbihan is not to be underestimated.
In total the Compagnie represents 8 300 berths in the water and another 1 873 berths on land. Its president is Mr François Goulard, the president of the Conseil Général (the departmental administration) of the Morbihan. The board of administration consists of local politicians. This direction allows the Compagnie to invest and to stimulate the economic, touristic, social and cultural development of the marinas, all in the interest of the participating towns.
This approach reinforces the capacity to invest, to maintain quality and to guarantee the best choices as the Compagnie is both responsible for the daily management and the investments. At the same time the Compagnie offers and develops technical services to private boat owners: dry stacking options / workshops / maintenance)
