Active customs inspections on yacht arrivals in Palma

Following the recent boarding by Customs and Excise officials of a sailing yacht arriving in Palma, we want to remind you of applicable limits of cash, alcohol, tobacco, and other goods.

Customs officers escorted and boarded the yacht upon arrival, and carried out an intensive search lasting three hours. ESTELA attended the situation, to mediate and diffuse a tense situation.

Without indicating whether they were looking for anything specific, officers gathered together all alcohol on board, which amounted to some fifty bottles of wine and spirits. The captain was instructed to attend the Palma customs office the following day, in order to make a formal declaration and pay any applicable duties and fines.

While no reason was given for this inspection, it serves as a reminder that all yachts arriving into Spain from a non-EU country must submit a customs declaration of goods that exceed personal allowances.

If in any doubt about limits and required declarations, please consult a licensed yacht agent.

The complete schedule of allowances is here:

ESTELA welcomes Virgin's 'Scarlet Lady' to Palma

This week, our ship agency colleagues at ESTELA Shipping hailed the inaugural visit to Palma de Mallorca of Virgin Voyages' cruise ship, 'Scarlet Lady'.

Arriving from Cannes on Thursday morning for the first time since her maiden voyage in 2020, our colleagues joined Port Authority and company officials on board for the customary welcoming ceremony.

Virgin Voyages is the first cruise line declared carbon neutral for its direct emissions footprint from its first day of commercial operation, meeting recognised verification standards, including The Gold Standard and Verified Carbon Standard.

Climeon technology uses heat generated by the ship's engines to produce 1MW of electricity, thereby decreasing fuel demand.

Built at the Fincantieri shipyard, near Genoa, flagged in Malta, she is 108,192 GT, measuring 278 m in length and 38 m beam. Her capacity is for 2,762 passengers in 1,404 cabins, plus 1,160 crew.

For the remainder of the season, 'Scarlet Lady' will call in Ibiza weekly and in Mallorca fortnightly. Her sister ship, 'Resilient Lady', is scheduled to make her inaugural call in Palma in August.

YACHT OPERATIONS ASSISTANT, BARCELONA/VILANOVA

ESTELA Superyacht Agency is looking for someone to join its busy offices in Barcelona and Vilanova.

We are looking for an energetic, outgoing, team-playing, flexible and proactive individual with the following qualities:

- Fluent English and Spanish at a minimum
- Driver’s licence
- Experience with MS Office, especially Outlook
- Good knowledge of Barcelona and surrounding area
- Some yacht industry knowledge would be great but is NOT essential

ESTELA is a leading superyacht and shipping agency located in #Barcelona. We provide support to yachts; from berth booking, provisioning and transfers, to immigration formalities, fuel and flowers.

We’re a small team of people who are dedicated to what they do. We’re professional and pride ourselves on providing first class service to yacht captains and crew. We also host events and travel to boat shows, so there are lots of opportunities to get involved in many different things.

You will be based in the office, but will also be running errands, such as shopping, collecting and delivering items. There is no room for egos and everyone mucks in where necessary. If you`re looking for a boring desk job, this is NOT for you!

How busy we are depends on the time of year and how many active clients we have visiting at any one time, so flexibility around working hours and the type of tasks is essential. You must be confident dealing with people face to face, or on the phone, speaking to clients and calling suppliers.

Our office hours are Monday - Friday 09:00-18:00, while you may occasionally need to help out at the weekend. Yachting is not a 9-to-5 activity, so our schedule is fluid. You’ll need to be available by mobile whenever away from the office, within reason, of course.

Perhaps you have an interest in #travel and #tourism? Or you enjoy meeting new people and you’re looking for a #job with lots of variety? All we ask for is a positive approach, energy and an enquiring mind. We will show you the ropes.

If this sounds like this could be for you, please send your CV with a covering note, to: yachts.barcelona@estelashipping.net with the subject: YABCN2024.
