We will expand our itineraries in this region as well as information and services that you would need whilst in the Caribbean. Our content will include more itineraries, places to visit, History, Culture, shopping, restaurants, as well as topics of interest. We would also like to inform our clients and partners that as from December 2017 we will be collaborating with Anchor Concierge and Superyacht Support Antigua.

We have noticed over the past month when the season is coming to a close or yachts are preparing to leave for the Caribbean many non EU crew members are not realising that they have not correctly signed on or off their Yacht. What does this mean? When you fly into a EU country on arrival you must go with a cosignatory to Immigration and have your passport stamped so you can embark on the yacht, this stops your 90 days being consumed. If you do not do this and you consume your days, you could be classified as an illegal and when you go to the airport to fly home you can have up to a 5 year ban for entering any EU country. If you want us to come on board and make sure that you have everything order contact us at Palma@estelashipping.net or +34 971 722 532 and of course no charge for the visit. More info at pag. 28 of “The Y” The Yachting Handbook
Do you have cash on board, including that of crew and guest that exceeds 10.000€? As of this year all yachts that are coming from outside Spanish waters, on entry must declare all cash on board including that of crew and guests if it exceeds 10.000 euros. It is a simple process you would just need to send the exact amount that is on board and we can process the paperwork before you arrive. This also comes into effect if you are planning on leaving Spanish waters and have more than 10.000€ on board you will have to declare this as well. Next port a non-EU? Is necessary to obtain a Departure Clearence from the authorities. Next port EU? Departure Notice will have to be presented to the authorities. For advice on any of the above matters, please contact us on +34 971 722 532 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org

There has been a huge impact on Superyacht behavior thanks to the Yachting Handbook, First published for the 2017, this Handbook has changed the behavior and routes of yachts that are sailing the Balearics. The handbook gives captains more information about rules and legislation than ever before. The posidonia page link is informing captains about anchorage possibilities and warning them on the risks if they damage the sea grass.. Owners and guests are becoming more curios of trying experiences and itineraries suggested in the handbook. With the support of Estela Superyacht Agency for timing, booking and assistance, it aims to make their experience unique and hassle free. Being the first season since its launch, we are seeing results that are exceeding our expectation! If you don’t have your copy on board, contact us or pop by our office! A Good read!
