An exceptional concentration
In 2005, the Sea Office, supported by the Avenir Traditions Marines and Cap Marseille local associations, carried out an inventory of the barquettes marseillaises in the city's ports. A record quantity of five hundred and two boats, mainly spread over ten of the fourteen Marseille ports, was listed. The Old Port had two hundred and thirty-two and the port of L'Estaque nearly one hundred and thirty, including the Marie-Louise built in 1899 and listed as a Historical Monument. The main construction period of the barquettes listed extends from the Second World War until the 1970s-1980s.
