Oceanskies in conjunction with Boatworks+ have entered into an initiative to attract more superyachts to Guernsey with a Spring fuel price promotion forming part of a new concierge service.
Advance bulk fuel orders of around 50,000 litres can now be arranged at prices of GBP £0.49 pence or less.
Already this year St Peter Port has been visited by a number of significant superyachts including the 85 metre Oceanco “Vibrant Curiosity”, the 70 metre Lürssen “Skat”, the 40 metre Princess “X5” and the 40 metre Sunseeker “Anya”.
Oceanskies in conjunction with Boatworks+ are hoping to increase the number of superyachts coming to Guernsey by offering complimentary services.
Boatworks+ are the operator of the fuel berth and the fuel concessionaire for St. Peter Port and all Marine Gas Oil (MGO) that they sell is duty free and tax free for both private and commercial vessels.
Oceanskies who are based in the offices of Boatworks+ can provide a full menu of local yacht registration, agency and concierge services including the handling of customs paperwork for EU export purposes.
Yachts of up to 50 metres in length can be accommodated on the adjacent Boatworks+ fuel berth whilst larger yachts can be berthed in the main harbour.
Oceanskies work in conjunction with Boatworks+ so that all customs formalities can be completed whilst the vessel is taking fuel.”
Guernsey provides an ideal Spring time stopping point for yachts routing from the Northern European yards to the Mediterranean for the summer season.
With an increasing number of superyachts also cruising in Northern European waters with guests onboard, Guernsey and the surrounding Channel Islands provide an idyllic and interesting cruising area in contrast to the overcrowded cruising grounds of the Mediterranean.
Guernsey also provides an excellent access point for owners and their guests to join their yacht. Guernsey’s quiet and secure airport has two private jet handling facilities and a chauffeur transfer from the aircraft steps to the passerelle of the yacht can be achieved in minutes.
Guernsey’s location out side the VAT territory of the EU also enables yachts to clear customs for VAT export purposes. For further information please click on the following link to our online guide:
