Mallorca’s pioneering superyacht agency is thriving and growing, as Palma becomes an ever larger hub for yachts based in, or visiting, the western Mediterranean.
In response to ever-increasing demand, Estela Superyacht Agency is now pleased to announce the opening of its new office in STP, Palma’s state-of-the-art service, refit and repair facility. From September, the STP office will be staffed from 09:00-12:00hrs, or by appointment.
Estela, Palma’s first superyacht agency, provides concierge services and technical support to superyachts visiting the Balearic Islands, including provisioning, berth booking, fuelling, flowers, recruitment, car hire and transfers, events and entertainment, itineraries, engineering services and anything else that superyacht captains and guests require in destination.
“The STP office is in operation, but will be formally inaugurated at our annual End of Season party later this year”, says senior yacht consultant, Francesco Gennai. “The new base is a boon for captains and crew needing to complete immigration or customs procedures, or requiring support with technical and engineering services, including fuelling, on-board water and sanitary analyses.”
The office makes Estela the only consignatory agent in STP, being on-hand to complete port and police formalities, such as transit visas, on behalf of vessels and crew. “Time is often at a premium for busy captains and crew working in STP, so being able to complete onerous paperwork without having to travel into town is extremely convenient”, added Estela’s Kristy Hollingsworth.
STP itself is not standing still, with the introduction this summer or a new 1000-tonne travelift, the largest of its kind in Europe. Waiting lists for services within STP suggest that Palma will continue to be the premier yacht service facility for years to come.
