Mediterranean marinas collaborate on superyacht berth packages
by Elizabeth Finney
Superyachts between 60 and 185 metres can now take advantage of three berth packages, three, nine or 12 months, that offer guaranteed summer mooring in Sovren Ibiza and winter mooring in OneOcean Port Vell in Barcelona.
The packages have been created in response to an increase in demand for berths in the Mediterranean for larger superyachts. Ibiza, already a buzzing nightlife hotspot, is becoming more popular as a stop off for superyachts cruising in the Mediterranean during the summer months. Sovren Ibiza, which opened in June 2017 in front of Dalt Vila, now presents an additional 16 berths for yachts between 60 and 185 metres alongside the island's other offerings.
Stephen White, founder and CEO of Sovren House Group said: “The two marinas have a unique synergy that make the summer and winter berth packages a natural and logical combination. The brand and the pedigree of OneOcean perfectly complements our new marina in Ibiza, so it is great to be working together.”
The prestigious OneOcean Port Vell, which can host yachts up to 190 metres, is a popular marina for yachts wintering in the Mediterranean as it is one of the few European marinas where VAT exemption can be granted. This makes it an extremely popular option for owners who opt for winter refits.
“The berth packages developed with Sovren Ibiza are testament to the clear trend of more and more superyachts choosing to be in Barcelona and Ibiza," said Paul Cook, general manager of OneOcean Port Vell. "The packages guarantee yachts a berth at one of the top summer destinations and the perfect winter home port, where many yachts choose to stay in Barcelona for repair and overhaul activities.”
If you're a regular in Ibiza and Barcelona when on a superyacht, the new collaboration between these two luxury yacht marinas might be perfect for your summer and winter moorings.
