Marina Port Vell appoints dockmaster
With phased marina completions intended throughout 2014, Marina Port Vell (MPV), Barcelona has announced the appointment of Captain Anders Pehrson as dockmaster.
"Bringing Captain Pehrson on at MPV to help spearhead the final detailing of the marina, and fine-tune our developing seven-star service to clients is a huge step forward," says Norma Trease, director of Salamanca Group's marine division. "He brings to us a wealth of experience as not only a top-level charter skipper, but also as a business owner and journalist. So his well-rounded background will be a tremendous help as we enter the final stages of our exciting MPV development."
Speaking exclusively to SuperyachtNews.com, Captain Pehrson reveals that he has high hopes for the future of MPV. "Joining the ambitious project is a closing circle for me personally," explains Captain Pehrson. "MPV was where I joined my first superyacht, 50m motoryacht Renalo. I have been hoping and waiting for something like this to happen for the last 15 years, and to now see Barcelona's foremost marina turning into a superyacht marina is absolutely fantastic. The fact that I will now be a part of the transformation makes it even better. As a superyacht captain, I know all about the big shortage of berths in the Western Med, and as Barcelona has always been a place where the crew enjoy spending time, I am sure it is set to be a very attractive home port. For me it's a great opportunity to come in during the transformation and to be involved in the creation of something new and exciting."
