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.
