We are pleased to announce the opening of our satellite operation in superyacht refit hub and growing home port location Barcelona, located within the MB’92 facilities.

Mikaela Favill, an ex-chief stewardess and sailing instructor with thousands of accumulated sea miles on large motoryachts and sailing yachts, will be heading up the Edge Yachts presence in Barcelona. Her operational experience, like that of her colleagues at Edge Yachts, provides her with first-hand knowledge of the daily operations on a large luxury yacht to better understand the expectations of demanding charter guests and owners.

Anthony Sands, our Founder and CEO, comments on the new appointment: “We have been based in the US capital of yachting, Fort Lauderdale, for a number of years now, and our expansion to Barcelona cements our commitment to the fleet of ever-moving superyachts, which for the most part are located in Europe and the Americas. Like each member of the team at Edge Yachts, Mikaela has a varied and in-depth background in professional maritime activities. She is a fantastic representative for us in Barcelona as she really appreciates the pressures and stresses that captains and department heads on superyachts face on a daily basis.We are very pleased to be able to offer our services from the well renowned MB’92 facilities, which welcome some of the largest and most prestigious superyachts in the world each year.”
