Bermuda continues as stopover “hotspot” for superyachts in 2015

Bermuda continues to be the ideal stopover for yachts and superyachts crossing the Atlantic Ocean, making their way back to the Mediterranean for the coming season, according to yacht services company, Meyer Agencies.

It has recently been reported that Bermuda has seen the arrival of 42m motor yacht Calliope and 57m motor yacht Illusion V in recent weeks, and this looks set to continue.

Joe Simas, vice president of marine operations at Meyer Shipping commented, “Our peak season is April and May so we expect a few more superyacht calls on their way over to Mediterranean. Meyer Agencies has already provided a range of services to superyachts this month including berthing, bunkers, provisioning, crew transfers and more.”

Jo also revealed that with the Atlantic crossing being such a long journey, superyachts mostly call at Bermuda for a bunker stopover, where they will wait for a ‘good weather window’ to continue their Atlantic crossing.

Though popular for superyachts, Bermuda is a small island, which means some services are limited. Joe continued, “There are no major supplies of yacht parts in Bermuda.  So when needed, spares or equipment has to be shipped to Bermuda.  This can be done by courier, airfreight or for large consignments, ocean freight. We can arrange this all.”

Bermuda also offers facilities and opportunities for yacht crew to relax while berthed in Bermuda. Joe explained, “For yacht crew wishing to R&R in Bermuda we have some of the best beaches and golf courses in the world. Great for crew to take a few days off while waiting for weather or just staying an extra few days in Bermuda. 

 “Stop by Bermuda and see for yourself why Bermuda is called ‘another world’.  Visit our beaches or golf courses and at the end of the day relay with a ‘dark n stormy’ on us.”
