For the long-term berth holders on the Oyster dock we try to fill the berth in their absence and provide a return. This has worked extremely well for those in the summer months who are unsure of future schedules but want the freedom to come and go to a confirmed berth. So don’t hesitate to contact Kim Aves if you are looking for a berth in Palma, be it one night or one year. 

So while we have the sofa, the coffee, the WiFi and the view, we also have the answers you’re looking for too.

CASE STUDIES

A few examples of work recently completed by the Oyster Palma team

Oyster 575 Mastegot A seemingly simple request can involve more than you imagine....

mastegotSternShot

Sometimes a seemingly simple request can involve more than you imagine. Over the 2018/19 winter Pau Serracanta, the owner of Mastegot, asked us to complete various works including the installation of a Besenzoni hydraulic passerelle. The fitting of this required some major works as we had to create an external moulding to accommodate the cassette and bond this into the transom on the starboard side, as well as cutting through the lazarette bulkhead into the owners cabin. We then had to box around the unit inside the cabin which meant changing the head-linings, headboards, and some of the cabinetry. A stainless steel & teak step was fabricated to fit over the moulding in order to blend this into the transom. 

Other works on board consisted of new upholstery in the saloon and owner’s cabin, widening the owner’s berth, installing a stern thruster, upgrading the bow thruster and painting the hull in grey AWL Grip.

 

I am happy with the service that I received in Palma, from buying Mastegot through the Oyster Brokerage, to having modifications made by Oyster Palma.  They were all very professional and pro-active, giving good advice on the different solutions and with the final work being of excellent quality. It is safe to leave things in their hands as they are the experts.

Oyster 62 Dalliance A New Chapter

DallianceForedeckedit

After completing an epic sail from Palma to New Zealand, Oyster 62 Dalliance came back to Palma for some Oyster care and attention from our service team. Dalliance is now in great condition sporting re-caulked decks and new upholstery. Her owners decided to put her on the market with Oyster Palma Brokerage in April 2019 but they wanted one final fling so they set sail again for Venice.  After a fabulous summer cruise, Dalliance was successfully sold on arrival in Venice in July.   

When we arrived back in Palma after the winter break we were completely bowled over by the exceptional appearance and condition of Dalliance. Clearly a huge amount of care and effort had gone into the mechanics and appearance of the boat and whilst Mark tries to take all the credit for having done it alone, we feel sure that the Palma team had a lot to do with it. A big thank you from Susie and I, Dalliance hasn’t looked this good since she was new!
