Yacht support service touts Gibraltar as destination

Yacht agent World Marine Service said the superyacht industry in Gibraltar is set to expand.

World Marine Service said Gibraltar, a British territory at the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea, is working hard to become more than just a fuel stop for superyachts.

“We have been working together with other members of local private industry to improve the ‘Gibraltar product’ for the yacht industry,” World Marine Service operations director Mark Lincoln told Yachting-Pages.com. “We are very nearly at the point of formalizing the ‘Gibraltar Yachting Advisory Board,’ a body which mixes six private sector industry representatives with several members of the public sector.”

Gibraltar is a key port of call for many yachts in the spring and fall, effectively having two “seasons” a year, World Marine Service said. It can already offer a range of attractions for visiting crew, owners and guests, as well as quality facilities for yachts and superyachts.

“There are two marinas, the commercial port with facilities to accept any size yacht, world-class fuelling facilities, proximity to Gibraltar International Airport and enormous support services,” Lincoln said.
