BWA Yachting, the leading worldwide marine yachting agency, has strengthened its client services in both Greece and Italy significantly after confirming alliances with both A1 Yachting and Luise Group.
BWA Yachting’s clients will benefit greatly from the capabilities of Luise Group, which covers all of the most prominent and exclusive ports in Italy, including on several Mediterranean islands. Luise Group, based in Naples but with a broad spread of offices, has a heritage in the yachting industry stretching back to 1847, making them an ideal synergistic partner for BWA Yachting. Their native knowledge is second to none, and they will reinforce BWA Yachting’s services with all-encompassing assistance, seven days a week.
A1 Yachting is recognised as the largest agency of its kind in Greece, with experience stretching over two decades, and a presence on the ground which is spread over ten offices, covering the core areas of Athens, Rhodes, Corfu, and Mykonos. Clients will access the legal, practical and touristic local knowledge which is valued across the industry, benefitting from the concierge, brokerage, charter, management, refit and repair, and yacht provisions supplied by A1 Yachting in the agreed areas.
Paschalis Patsiokas, BWA Yachting CEO, said: “With a wealth of experience within their territories, we rely on our partners to offer clients complete assistance 24/7, accessing only the best in yachting. Together we cover more than 450 of the Mediterranean’s leading ports, meaning that we are able to offer access to a wide range of facilities and meet clients’ port and berth requirements closer. By strengthening our partnership, we can respond faster and better to our clients’ needs.”
All three firms involved in the new alliance – BWA Yachting, Luise Group and A1 Yachting – will have a joint presence at the forthcoming Monaco Yacht Show in September 2017.
