ADVERTISEMENT

BWA Yachting, the global superyacht agent and support services provider, has announced a formal partnership agreement with Astilleros de Mallorca, the Mediterranean refit and repair yard for superyachts, sail & power, classic & modern. Astilleros de Mallorca offers facilities to allow and undertake any repair or maintenance work on yachts, with new offices and workshops in the STP – Servicios Tecnicos Portuarios area. BWA Yachting is happy to confirm the opening of a new office into Astilleros de Mallorca facilities.

The objective of the agreement between BWA Yachting and Astilleros de Mallorca is to better assist clients and coordinate the operations while being very close to the yachts. Mallorca is a turntable for those superyachts that run both Caribbean and Mediterranean seasons. With a wide range of services, Palma is the ideal “pit stop”, refit and repair centre in the Mediterranean. Astilleros de Mallorca is serving 240 yachts yearly in their facilities while BWA Yachting provides a global network of marine and shore side facilitation services for superyachts sailing around the world.

“We are extremely pleased to announce this partnership. Astilleros de Mallorca is a prestigious shipyard with a long trajectory and offers extremely high professional support maintaining  a very personal touch. When we met Diego Colon, general manager, and Stephan Enders, commercial manager, I immediately felt that it was a perfect match. We shared the same values, same philosophy, we did care for our client satisfaction and felt we were simply complementary. BWA can bring a whole range of services within the yard as well as providing a perfect, efficient, professional  and friendly service to all the clients” says Antonella Della Pietra, Managing Partner of BWA Yachting Spain.

BWA Yachting has had an increasing interest the last few years to open offices in Spain. In 2009 the first Mallorca-based office opened in Port Adriano. Other Spanish offices include Barcelona, Vilanova Grand Marina, and Tarragona. BWA Yachting offers services in all Spanish ports from Costa Brava to Cadiz and Seville, the Balearic and Canary Islands.
