Estela Shipping is following certain quality standards under the norm of the UNE-EN-ISO 9001:2008 as we put great emphasis on receiving feedback from our customers in order to constantly improve our services. In relation to this we developed a customer satisfaction sheet adapted to the standards that are asked for in the UNE-EN-ISO 9001:2008 regulations. Apart from that Estela Shipping is a member of the AYSS- Association of Yacht Support Services, a global network which you only can be part of if you meet certain quality standards and obtain recommendations from captains and industry companions. Therefore, we continuously send out customer satisfaction sheets. These official satisfaction sheets from the AYSS and UNE-EN-ISO 9001:2008 clearly state that all captains, crew and partner agencies that are working with us would recommend Estela Shipping to others. The AYSS recommendation sheet also includes the question if Estela Shipping can be considered as being fair and ethical and only if it is answered with a ¨yes¨ you can enter the AYSS. Other opinions by captains that were often used in this context are ¨indispensable asset when cruising in the Balearic Islands area ¨ or ¨available 24/7¨.
Marinas We are sure you agree with us that Spain and its islands are one of the most popular destinations for super yachts. As Estela Shipping has its own offices and partner offices in all mayor ports of Spain and the Balearic Islands you can trust us that we know all the hotspots and most beautiful places. This is why we are convinced that you should give us a call so we can assure you the best berth rates and reservations as well as develop a customized itinerary to guarantee your perfect trip.

If you work on a yacht, you should be aware about the risks that come with water activities. Your guest’s and colleague’s life could depend on your skills and preparation. Every second can be vital and only a well organized teamwork can ward off tragedy in many cases.The ability to carry out first aid before paramedics arrive can really minimise damage to the victim, help aid their recovery and even ensure their survival. Do you really know how to react in an emergency situation? Are you and your colleagues prepared to save a life? Think about how you would answer the questions below: • Does everybody on board know exactly where the first aid kit is and how to use it? • Do you know how to effectively perform CPR and use a defibrillator? • When is it necessary to provide emergency oxygen? • Do you remember how to revive a person experiencing a breathing or heart function emergency? • Did you know that after approximately three to five minutes in cardiac arrest, irreversible brain/tissue damage may begin to occur? • What’s your reaction time in a cardiac arrest emergency? • Can you recognize the signs of drowning? • Do […]

This was closely followed by the opening of our new offices in Palma, Barcelona and Cuba, with new relationships and
