BWA Yachting has been made the preferred superyacht service provider to Vilanova Grand Marina-Barcelona in Spain. The multi-year service and marketing agreement allows BWA to further expand its presence in Spain and strengthens its position within the Spanish market as the country plays an ever more important role as an off-season location.

“BWA Yachting has long recognised the strong potential of the superyacht industry in Spain and especially in the Barcelona/Catalonia area,” says Edward Pegan, commercial manager of BWA Yachting. “We are very pleased to collaborate with Vilanova Grand Marina as our strategies and business philosophies are very similar.”

Located near Sitges, Spain, Vilanova Grand Marina-Barcelona has rapidly positioned itself within the international superyacht market as a reference point for these types of vessels. Since opening in April 2009, the marina has registered a 60 per cent occupancy rate, offering both short and long term berthing options. It offers 49 moorings from 25m-80m (82ft-262ft), along with services and a technical area for refit and repairs.

BWA Yachting specialises in concierge and marine agency services to the superyacht industry with offices in Spain, the South of France, Monaco, Corsica, Croatia, Malta, Montenegro, Turkey, Ft Lauderdale, Florida and the Caribbean. The company also provides services in Italy and Greece through its associate partners
