About Us

Welcome to Palma, welcome to Palmawatch!

Palmawatch was founded in 2002 by two yacht captains, Pierre Oberon and Peter Bräckel. Initially dedicated to basic yacht maintenance and yacht care (gardienage), the demand quickly requested higher technical and managerial skills. Experienced professionals joined the small team and after more than 15 years of existence, Palmawatch has become an extremely well established yacht service company.

It has its own team of dedicated and caring technicians, covering an expanding range of in house services including: haul out works, water systems, steel/aluminium works, windlass & deck gear systems and fuel tank cleaning.  Working in close collaboration with specialists with all the necessary expertise to offer owners, Captains, shipyards and project managers the full range of yacht services, from yacht care and maintenance to repairs and refit projects, keeping them in their pristine condition and ensuring full enjoyment of the yacht.

At the beginning of 2011, our company incorporated a new shareholder which brought an even higher level of professionalism in to the company and improved our activities, making us a more effective and structured organization.

This has led Palmawatch to be appointed in 2012 as Oyster Marine“Preferred Service Partner” in Palma. A recognition of the excellence of our services we are proud of. We also have long experience working on the famed Dutch yachts Jongert.

We are not the largest yacht services company, nor the oldest one, but we have quickly achieved an enviable recognition as a reliable, versatile and friendly business partner. Which is clear from our increasing number of patrons, but also from the yacht manufacturers and material suppliers.

With many refits now under our belt we have happily served repeatedly the same owners across their successive boats, continuously servicing their many boats since delivering the first support to them.

We speak/write in English, Spanish, German, Italian and French !
