Puerto Portals-based Mediterranean Yachts has recently celebrated the 30th anniversary since its foundation in 1987. Owner and CEO Andy McDougall originally joined the company as a founding partner and as part of a team of industry professionals with a passion for the sea and a firm belief that the Balearic Islands would emerge as a leading global yachting hub. Mediterranean Yachts has since become one of the most established yacht brokerage companies in Mallorca, having sold a large number of new and used yachts over 24 meters in the Balearics and throughout the Mediterranean. In addition to its solid brokerage and charter performance, Mediterranean Yachts continues to build upon its decades of new construction experience which have been the result of frequent collaborations with the world’s leading shipyards, lawyers, surveyors and management companies.
In 2014, Mediterranean Yachts formed a joint venture, Sanlorenzo Spain, to act as the exclusive dealer for Sanlorenzo Yachts in Spain and the Balearic Islands. In the years since, Sanlorenzo Spain has sold and delivered 9 new build yachts to its clients including 52m 52Steel ‘Seven Sins’, the largest Sanlorenzo yacht built to date. Its dedicated after-sales service network operates throughout Spain and was recently awarded the highly coveted 2016-2017 Sanlorenzo After-Sales Service Award. Andy McDougall said ‘Clients now require a very high level of customisation, luxury, and individual design and Sanlorenzo, which has been building made to measure motor yachts for almost 60 years, is able to fulfil every customisation desire. The Balearic Islands are the perfect market for Sanlorenzo, with more and more high net worth individuals from all over the globe discovering this wonderful cruising area as a premier base for their superyachts.’
Anvera Spain was also established earlier this year to represent Anvera Yachts on an exclusive basis in Spain and the Balearic islands. In the words of Andy McDougall ‘the high-performance Anvera concept occupies a unique niche in the market and is the perfect luxury day boat or chase boat for the Balearics, we are very proud to be bringing the Anvera fleet to Spanish shores for the first time.’ The Anvera 55S CrossOverBoat is due for its Spanish premiere at Palma Boat Show 2018.
Partnerships with leading shipyards allow Mediterranean Yachts to offer their clients a wide range of bespoke yachts, each with an unparalleled level of customisation, quality and innovation. This is also a sign of the continued success of a ‘multi-brand’ strategy which is now at the core of Mediterranean Yachts operations.
