Port Adhoc, marina management in Europe

The Group in a few figures

Port Adhoc, European leader

Founded in 2004, Port Adhoc develops and operates marinas. The Group currently owns and operates 11 sites, 7 of which are in France and 4 in the Netherlands.

The Group's history began with the design and construction of a network of 4 ports (3 dry ports and 1 mixed port). It now continues with the integration of already mature ports (6 afloat ports and 1 mixed and multiservice port), with different tenure regimes (full ownership, concessions, leases). In just a few years, the Group has become one of the leading operators of private marinas in France and Europe. After the opening of our port of Paimpol in 2005, its first dry port, the Group has rapidly developed along the entire French coastline. In 2019, Port Adhoc completed its first European operation with the acquisition of the group ThuishavensGroup, a portfolio of 3 afloat ports in the Netherlands. In March 2021, the Group made a second acquisition in the Netherlands with Jachthaven Lelystad Haven.

History of the Group Port Adhoc

Port Adhoc opens its first dry ports
In 2005, Port Adhoc opened the Port of Paimpol, its first dry port, in Brittany, in the Côtes d'Armor. Port Adhoc Today, Paimpol has nearly 250 dry dock spaces on racks and on cradles. It will be followed by two new dry ports in New Aquitaine, the port of Soubise and the port of Anglet. The port of Soubise in Charente-Maritime will follow.
Port Adhoc starts managing marinas
Port Adhoc expanded its portfolio of assets in 2013 with the acquisition of its first marina: Port Médoc. This was followed by the acquisition in 2016 of Port Napoléon and the takeover of Port Barcarès in 2018.
Port Adhoc becomes a European network
Port Adhoc becomes a European network through the acquisition of the premium marina group in the Netherlands: Thuishavens. The three marinas in the network will be joined in 2021 by a fourth marina in Lelystad.

Social and Environmental Responsibility

The Group Port Adhoc has built a CSR policy based on 3 key principles


The Yacht Marine Association's Gold Anchor programme has been auditing marinas around the world for over 25 years. It is recognised as a standard of harbour excellence. All certification will have undergone a series of rigorous tests.

Awarded ports :

Created in 1987 as part of the Foundation for Environmental Education, the Blue Flag certification is one of the most recognised in the world for beaches, marinas and the nautical tourism sector, with a total of 4820 entities in 49 countries.

Awarded ports :

The European Clean Harbours certification is an Afnor label of environmental excellence in terms of marina management, which has existed since 2011. The ports in the Port Adhoc network are currently improving their practices to obtain this certification.

Awarded ports :


Intelligent terminals have been developed by Port Adhoc and its partner SICAME. They are connected to the port management software and allow better control of fluid consumption and better detection of faults.

Equipped ports :

Port Adhoc has deployed a full-web commercial management solution which is in production in all the ports of the network. It allows the digitisation of the harbourmaster's office services and interconnection with the port's equipment.

Equipped ports: all ports in the Port Adhoc network (France and the Netherlands)

The racked boat storage model is sustainable because it takes up less space than a wet dock, racks are light and dismountable infrastructure, it also involves less maintenance for the boats (careening, painting, etc.) and it improves the durability of the boats and their equipment.

Equipped ports :


The development of Port Adhoc in France and abroad is linked to its cooperation with local actors. The teams work closely with public authorities, local businesses and associations on a daily basis on a variety of issues such as waste management, events or other services.
