Four leading companies based in the Balearic Islands are set to reveal plans for the Balearic Yacht Destination Project at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, which takes place in just under a month on the 23rd to 26th September.
The companies involved : Marina Ibiza, Astilleros de Mallorca, STP Shipyard Palma, Port Adriano, will all contribute to promoting the project. The project itself aims to ‘present Mallorca and Ibiza as a complete 360º destination for the nautical industry, both in terms of enjoying sailing as well as in the repair and maintenance aspect’.
Jennifer Maul of Astilleros de Mallorca commented, “Mallorca and Ibiza are now established as two of the main tourist destinations in the world, but also as the best places to live, according to recent international press coverage.
“Mallorca is an idyllic island in many respects, and in addition to its well-known beauty, it has also become a global centre in the nautical industry, providing valuable employment for several thousand people. Ibiza is the fashionable destination among a growing international clientele including well known celebrities along with the rich and famous who seek the maximum expression of luxury.”
The companies promoting this new venture will therefore attend the Monaco Yacht Show to promote berthing in the Balearic Islands to boat owners. On Wednesday 23rd September, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm, the Balearic Yacht Destination Project will be presented at the stand QL10 (Jetée Lucciana) with a welcome cocktail and ‘some surprises’.
