STP and Marina Ibiza are back in the news at Monaco
From the 23rd to 26th of September, STP Shipyard Palma and Marina Ibiza, facilities of IPM Group, were once again at the most prestigious show in the nautical sector.
With a marked and renewed stand over 50m2, the most exclusive marina in the Mediterranean and the largest shipyard in Europe, could be visited by clients and friends like every year. It is noteworthy that, for this occasion, the complete programme of activities that both facilities had planned proved to be a success.
As a new fact in this edition, besides the scheduled activities for each facility, IPM Group was also present through the new platform of companies formed by STP, Marina Ibiza, Astilleros de Mallorca and Port Adriano, called Balearic Yacht Destination. The initiative promoted by these four companies, aimed to draw the attention to the islands as a unique destination for the enjoyment of sailing but also as a unique destination for the repair and maintenance of vessels. And the debut could not be better, as it became one of the most visited places around the Boat Show with its opening party on the same Wednesday the Show started. Renowned DJs of Club Cabaret Lío, located in Marina Ibiza and Ibizan wine tasting were the keys to make all attendees of the Show make a stop every day at this unique space.
In addition to this successful initiative, clients and Friends were invited, together with Astilleros de Mallorca and Port Adriano to the usual wine and Spanish ham tasting that is held every year to celebrate the course of the season and toast the success of the next one. The call left no doubts about the notoriety that STP and Marina Ibiza have in the sector. Industrials, captains, press, customers and friends made a stop to taste a great selection of wines and various pata negra hams that were cut by an expert for the occasion.
As a complement to these two major initiatives, upcoming courses STP offers to Captains and crew were introduced within its programme STP&ACREW Superyacht Professional Development. To give out information about upcoming courses to be held on October 22nd and 23rd, a press breakfast was offered at ACREW’s sponsored terrace at La Rascasse. This presentation was followed by a masterclass for captains about a very interesting topic: the Maritime Labour Convention known as MLC, 2006. And finally, after the masterclass, STP and Marina Ibiza, invited all participants to a fun meal among friends with Paella and salads.
The closing party on the last day of the show at the Balearic Yacht Destination stand with Lío Ibiza’s DJ was the finale to the programme of activities which has been more complete this year than ever, and it became a true reflection of this season’s results.
Once back home, IPM Group team is working to start with the refit and maintenance season at STP, also closing a good year in Marina Ibiza as well as the marinas in Mallorca, and preparing the next edition of the Monaco Yacht Show with more news, and even most successfull if possible.
