#PalmaSuperyachtShow #SuperyachtRefits #YachtMaintenance #HaulOuts
Another highly successful Palma Superyacht Show took place in Mallorca earlier this month. This was the 6th edition to be run alongside the long established Boatshow Palma, and the event just gets bigger and better every year!
Palmawatch have their office and workshop next door to the show site, and based right inside the STP superyacht repair & refit yard. So, the team had plenty of opportunity to chat with clients old and new, during the five day show from 27thApril to 1stMay.
Coinciding with the staging of the shows, Palmawatch announced a number of additions to their personnel, and extensions to their service offer, which is always being supplemented according to market demands.
- Paul Madeley – Project Engineer for the Palmafits division.
Paul has already earned an excellent reputation, providing project engineering services to yacht owners and their representatives, delivering complex projects on time, and on budget over the last 20 years.
- Daniela Webber – Administration Manager for the Palmafits division.
Daniela comes to the role with many years’ experience in the Yacht Agency business. This background gives her the valuable knowledge base of dealing with things like TPA (temporary VAT free importation of yachts undergoing repair or refit), customs and harbour liaison, crew / yacht immigration and clearance, and APA ‘Cash to Master’ services.
- Victor Asencio – Comes to the company with a solid 15-year background as a Fluid Dynamics Engineer specialising in the superyacht sector.
On the fluid handling product supply side, the company is an authorised installer of Gianneschi, Calpeda and Rheinstrom pumps in standard or customised set ups andinstallations.
Reacting to the well documented increase in contamination of fuel systems due to reformulations of diesel in recent years, Palmawatch have also developed another set of in-house skills combined with specialised products, all tailored to meet this demand. With this they are able to deal with special fuel filtration, purification and polishing systems, utilising products such as MicFil and Separ filter systems.
Add to this their skilled workmanship in paint re-finishing, woodwork/joinery, electrics & electronics, rigging, engine mechanics, hydraulics, etc; and it’s clear that yacht owners, captains and crew can rely on Palmawatch for a comprehensive ‘stem to stern’ service offer!
