Marina Port Vell (MPV) in Barcelona announced Nigel Upton as senior sales manager in March. Upton brings a diversified megayacht background with direct experience in sales, management, customer service and time at sea.



“Since January, we have experienced a remarkable upsurge in interest for the berths we are creating here at Marina Port Vell in Barcelona. We are excited that Nigel has agreed to join our sales team,” said Norma Trease, director of Salamanca Group’s Marine Division. “We met Nigel when he sold us our beautiful Windy tender, so we know first-hand that he understands how to work with clients and close deals. Further, he is remarkably customer service oriented, a top priority for us.”



Upton most recently served as director of both Superyacht Tenders and MGMT Yacht. His previous land-based experience included sales for EYOS and service as managing director and RYA Instructor at Ribeye Balearics. He was bosun aboard a 48m motoryacht and deck hand and dive instructor aboard a 44m motoryacht. His yachting credentials include Commercial Yacht Master Offshore, RYA motoryacht instructor, and PADI dive instructor. He holds a BA in Hospitality Management and Tourism and an HND in Business and Finance.
