BWA opens office in Gib

Apr 3, 2019 by Triton Staff

Global yacht services provider BWA Yachting has recently opened an office in Gibraltar. The company has operated there through sub-agents for 10 years.

“It took us some time to identify the best partner to work with,” stated COO Nikolaos Patsiokas in a press release. “We’ve now joined forces with Turner Shipping.”

Alex Lavarello, well known in the local shipping industry, will lead operations at the new office, based at 65-67 Irish Town. Services will include technical support, freight forwarding and customs clearance, booking VAT-free fuel, berth reservations in Gibraltar’s three marinas and commercial berths, and provisioning.

Patsiokas said the company hopes to change the perception of Gibraltar from that of a tax-free pit stop to that of a well-rounded location with additional services available, not only for yachts and crews, but for owners and guests as well.
