Strategic partnership between Berthon International and Sentinel Yachting in Palma de Mallorca.

Berthon, one of the world’s leading refit, engineering and blue water yacht sales specialists, employing 150 people (including 30 apprentices) has entered into a strategic partnership with Palma-based Sentinel Yachting to offer a full range of yacht management, engineering, maintenance, refit services and yacht sales, under the Berthon brand. Berthon Spain therefore joins Berthon France and Berthon UK to compliment Mediterranean & European coverage respectively; Berthon USA in Newport Rhode Island covers the USA.

Under the terms of the agreement, Berth on has acquired a meaningful interest in Sentinel Yachting which has expanded rapidly since its incorporation in 2014 to offer full guardiennage packages, inhouse engineering, electronics, fabrication, plumbing, rig-support and of course brokerage.

Commenting on the announcement, Sue Grant, Managing Director of Berthon International, said:

“Palma remains a key destination in the Western Mediterranean for yacht owners and managers looking for technical support and advice. In Sentinel we appreciate Andrew’s no-nonsense and transparent approach which match the values that have enabled Berthon to prosper as a family business since 1877. We now have a perfect base from which to offer great service to our clients whether they have yachts for sale with us or have bought and sold with us in the past, or indeed, are thinking of selling now.”

Andrew Fairbrass, Managing Director of Sentinel Yachting, said:

“An alliance with Berth on enables us to tap into over 100 years of experience and expertise, complementing our personal approach to building client relationships. Together with Berthon’s formidable worldwide network and infrastructure, I believe the combination creates a unique proposition for Med-based yacht owners delivered from offices and workshop in the centre of Palma.”
