145 visualizzazioni 20 dic 2022Yes, it’s the annual ESTELA Christmas video!! Here at ESTELA, we go the extra mile for our superyacht clients and our Christmas gift deliveries are no exception. We engaged the services of The Helicopter Centre in Palma to distribute presents to Port Adriano, Pantalan del Mediterraneo and others as quickly as possible. Thanks to all for their cooperation! We hope you enjoy watching this as much as we enjoyed making it, we had a BLAST 💥 And don’t forget… “In 1850 ESTELA Shipping opened in the Balearics to help captains and owners solve problems. Today, ESTELA’s crack team of professionals are wanted by captains everywhere, surviving as agents of fortune. Whatever you need, from bunkering, formalities, provisions or delivering Christmas gifts, if you have a problem and if you know where to find them….maybe you can hire The E-Team.”

(Updated 14th November, 2022) The transatlantic yachting season is here and crew recruitment remains hot. The Med season has seen a shortage of experienced crew, so those with B1/B2 visas are in especially great demand right now. If you don’t have yours already and are hoping to winter in the Americas, West Indies and the Caribbean, here’s what you need to know… The ‘B1/B2’ visa Non-immigrant visas for entering US territory temporarily are classified ‘B-1’ for business, ‘B-2’ for pleasure, or ‘B-1/B-2’ for a combination of both. Valid for up to 10 years for stays of up to six months, it is not specifically designed for yacht crew, but it is the most appropriate class of visa for the industry, says the US State Department. NB. DO NOT apply for the C-1 crewmember visa, as this is designed for other seafarers. Work restrictions Following a COVID-era tweak to the rules, non-US crew can work on foreign or US-flagged yachts in US waters, though NOT employed directly by a US employer or on a US-registered payroll. US taxation laws for foreign nationals are a world of pain anyway, so this is always best avoided in any case. Note that working, or […]
After a two-year break, we will host the legendary ESTELA ‘End of Season’ party for crew and partners, to mark the close of the Mediterranean season. As usual, it will be held in Port Adriano. It is a themed fancy dress party, with a free buffet, (partially) open bar, a live band and DJ, fuelling a fun-filled night. Complimentary transport from STP and Club de Mar in Palma will be laid on, while sponsor-donated prizes are awarded to the best costumes on the night. The venue will be decorated in keeping with the theme, while sponsors’ signage is prominent, in the form of unmissable banners, flags, on-screen ads and photocall. All sponsors of the event are name-checked during the prize-giving presentation, as well as appearing on printed and online invitations, as well as in our email newsletters. 2019’s closing party drew 250+ guests on the night.
It’s been an unusual and hectic couple of years since we last printed ‘The Y’, so we’re delighted to be able to announce the launch of the 2022/23 edition! Chances are that you already know ‘The Y Yachting Itineraries’, so you will be familiar with the format. In each edition we suggest different destinations to visit by yacht, with ideas for things to see and do while you’re there, and the best places to eat. And even if a destination is somewhere you’ve visited before or it’s somewhere new, we guarantee we’ll show you things you didn’t already know. Hard copies will be available in the coming days, but in the meantime, the complete book is available online >>> here We have dubbed this book the ‘Art Edition’, inspired by Málaga, the birthplace of Pablo Picasso, and Costa Brava, which Salvador Dalí called home. Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca, meanwhile, were home to Joan Miró, completing our trifecta of Spanish modern masters. We revisit Lanzarote and the Canary Islands, which are attracting strong interest from charterers, while by popular demand, we conclude this edition with a deep dive on The Bahamas. Remember, wherever you’re heading this season, ESTELA is on […]
On the occasion of the Palma Superyacht Village, ESTELA hosted its second annual “Captains’ Dinner at the Museum”. Staged in the stunning setting of Palma’s San Carlos Military Museum, this exclusive event was attended by 100 guests, including captains and their partners, sponsors and guests. The evening kicked off with sunset cocktails overlooking Palma Bay, leading to a candle-lit four course dinner, under canvas, in the atmospheric courtyard of the military fortress. Entertainment was provided by an operatic soprano, followed by a jazz trio, with our DJ turning up the heat well into the early hours. Huge thanks go to our sponsors and partners who made the evening possible: AYSS; Coral Marine; Charter Itinerary; Autovidal; Termopetroli; Swisspath Yachting; Jotun; Antigua Yacht Club Marina & Resort; Moncada Hispania Boutique; Gym Marine; Bluewater; The Crew Network; Díaz & Asociados; Argentario Yacht Services; Express Bunker; Fronda
Last month, ESTELA took a group of captains, brokers and industry guests to Lanzarote, to discover the island as a cruising destination. It’s fair to say that they found it an eye-opening experience. Watch: https://youtu.be/Th1tJZizFzk The trip was organised in partnership with Lanzarote Tourism and Lanzarote Superyacht Destination, taking in the spectacular sights and taste of the island, as well as its marinas and yard facilities. It was the second event hosted by ESTELA, promoting Lanzarote as a superyacht destination, following our themed ‘End of Season Dinner’ in October of last year. Lanzarote will again feature in the forthcoming edition of ‘The Y Yachting Itineraries 2022/23’, to be published next month.
April was an extremely busy month for ESTELA, starting with an exploratory ‘famtrip’ to Lanzarote, followed by two breakfast seminars at the Palma Superyacht Village and ending with a spectacular Captains’ Dinner at the Museum 2022. Thanks to all our friends, partners and sponsors that made these events possible, and to those who attended. Our next major extravaganza will be the ‘End of Season’ event in Port Adriano on Friday 7th October. To find out more about collaborating with us, get in touch.

Interview with Inspector Luis Porto and Subinspector Juan A.Lemos of the foreign control. Pag 28 – The Y / Yachting Handbook – Captains Chapter All recreational embarkations that come to Palma, the Captain being the person responsible for the embarkation has certain obligations that he must comply with at the maritime port authorities; these are not only for Mallorca but Spain the EU and all Schengen areas. The requirements that they need are the following. Crew list with nationality and passport details Guest list with nationality and passports, name surname all details, not only crew members but guests on board. I understand that some people want to stay anonymous, but we must be able to identify who is on board and who is in the country. We understand that captains want to be discreet about who they have on board but this is inevitable, not only here but all over the world. Read More (Pag 28)
