Palma de Mallorca will promote itself as an international yacht maintenance center, according to the Institute for Business Innovation
While virtually every sector of Mallorca's business has been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Palma de Mallorca shipyards in the Balearic Islands are doing well in servicing ships. Only recently, several yachts have come here for servicing, three of which are over 70 meters long.
More than 800 vessels were served by five hundred maritime companies in 2019.
As the Institute of Business Innovation told Majorca Daily Bulletin, "Palma's combination of experience, tradition, prestige and high quality work attracts the best clients in the world, even in the current environment, making it one of the most profitable sectors in sailing."
Due to the favorable geographical position and the high quality of the yacht servicing work performed, Palma's reputation is growing from year to year, which leads to an increase in the number of yachts arriving in Mallorca for repairs.
While many yacht owners around the world are fleeing the pandemic at sea, quite a large number of them come here to travel and service their yacht at the same time.
Several sources report that during the summer season, Palma Bay and Club de Mar visited three well-known yachts quite often, which can serve as indisputable proof of the fact that "Palma is one of the best service centers in the Mediterranean maritime sector."
