Paris Yacht Club!


There's one thing missing in Paris: it's the sea! Even so, there are several ports around the city or even more surprisingly, within the city. This one, for example, is a real yachting port. It is called the Port de l'Arsenal and was built in 1983. It fits no less than 170 boats and is linked to the Seine river through a lock from the River. I have been unable to find out how much it costs to stay a night or more there , but I do know that it is free to enjoy the view!

  1. And the restaurants along this area are a great way to get a water view while dining.

  2. Is it a place where people can dock their boat on a permanent basis? Is it exclusive, and do you have to be a "member" to be able to use this facility?
