du Château

A city break

Dock in our port

Simple access to a well-sheltered port

Record-breaking port

Located at the entrance to the River Penfeld, the Marina du Château is the Bay of Brest’s number one marina. Well protected by the shelter offered by the military port, it is ideal for a peaceful stopover, whatever the weather conditions.

The Marina has around 650 berths on catways, some of which are reserved for visitors, as well as spaces along the Pérouse breakwater that can accommodate larger boats. The port offers deep water and is therefore permanently accessible.

Its strategic position on the Brittany peninsula also makes it the favourite meeting place for top sailors setting out to break the most daunting offshore racing records.

A port in the city centre

A break in the heart of the city

The Marina du Château is a modern and dynamic port ideally located near Brest’s city centre. Buses, trams and a cable car make it easy to explore the city and appreciate all its charms. The port is also close to Brest’s railway station, which is very practical if you are changing crew.

Also known as the city of Ponant, Brest has something for everyone: bars and restaurants for gourmets, museums for the curious, the Ateliers des Capucins and music venues for the festive and Cours Dajot for a casual stroll.

The shops and markets near the port make it easy to stock up on fresh, local foods.

Brest’s commercial port is a festive location with events held every Thursday during the summer season. And every four years the pontoons come alive with the famous Brest Maritime Festival.
