Port Adriano.

The Spanish Association of Large Yachts (AEGY), based in Palma, reports that there has been a reduction in the number of superyachts in the Balearics and the rest of Spain this summer. The superyachts have been diverted to "other countries as a consequence of the pandemic".

The association coincides with the views of the National Association of Nautical Businesses (ANEN) in alerting the Spanish government to the need for support for Spain's nautical industry, e.g. for large yacht maintenance, repair and services.

Spain is a leader for repair and maintenance, with 49% of owners bringing yachts to the Balearics each year for work to be carried out.

ANEN points out that the leading repair and maintenance companies, marinas and brokers are affiliated to AEGY, e.g. Astilleros de Mallorca, Port Adriano and Camper & Nicholsons.

The big issue in all of this is: Armengol and the Socialists will be history at the next elections and we are stuck with her inheritance of incompentence and bad decision making. But will she be held accountable? I doubt it.

I am a boat owner

Mallorca is lovely but has issues. Berthing is expensive. The island is anti tourist and the latest incarnation of this is you can’t moor up on weed. There is lots of weed !

However there is no enforcement of speed limits on jet ski and the like going fast in anchorages or sufficient / any pump out stations for on board sewage. So they protect weed but are happy to risk lives in anchorages and for people to pump @&&p into this sea.

They have imposed new taxes on companies working in marinas. They don’t learn. Last time they introduced matriculation tax the boats all left.

'The Balearics is of great importance for repair and maintenance.' Obviously not!

I don't suppose it has anything to do with the increase in taxes and subsequent increase in prices.. No, no, no. the great excuse this year is "Covid"
