Barcelona marina hires sales manager

Posted on

Marina Port Vell in Barcelona said Nigel Upton, who has a diversified superyacht background with direct experience in sales, management, customer service and time at sea, joined the marina as senior sales manager.

Marina Port Vell said it is set to become one of the world’s most elite superyacht destinations and the pre-eminent home port in the Mediterranean.

“Since January, we have experienced a remarkable upsurge in interest for the berths we are creating here at Marina Port Vell in Barcelona. We are excited that Nigel has agreed to join our sales team,” Salamanca Group marine division director Norma Trease said in a statement.

“We met Nigel when he sold us our beautiful Windy tender, so we know firsthand that he understands how to work with clients and close deals. Further, he is remarkably customer service-oriented, a top priority for us.”

Upton most recently was director of both Superyacht Tenders — a dedicated yacht tender brokerage service — and MGMT Yacht, an independent advisory consultancy providing counsel on yacht services and concierge.

His previous land-based yachting experience includes sales for EYOS and serving as managing director and RYA instructor at Ribeye Balearics. At sea, he was bosun aboard a 48-meter motoryacht and deckhand and dive instructor aboard a 44-meter motoryacht.

His yachting credentials include commercial yacht master offshore, RYA motoryacht instructor and PADI diving instructor. He has a bachelor’s degree in hospitality management and tourism and an HND in business and finance.
