In February 2020, we were delighted to bring on board Magnus Kullberg and his team when much respected brokerage house XLNT Yachting became Berthon Scandinavia. Magnus’ offices are situated on the enchanting and remote Island of Orust in Sweden, also home to many great Swedish shipyards such Najad, Sweden Yachts, Hallberg-Rassy and Malö. This strategic location in Henan enables Berthon Scandinavia to offer clients effective service and refit solutions from their base at the old Najadvarvet shipyard. Berthon Scandinavia specialises in the sale of high quality cruising yachts in Sweden, Scandinavia and internationally, and is also the agent for Solaris Yachts in Sweden.
Berthon Spain is located in vibrant Palma de Mallorca, heart of the Western Mediterranean yachting scene. MD Andrew Fairbrass spent many years as a yacht captain before moving ashore to set up Sentinel Yachting, offering local yachtsmen high quality refit and repair services as well as comprehensive guardiennage packages. In September 2018 Sentinel Yachting joined our ranks to become Berthon Spain. The company has grown from strength to strength. Simon Turner has now joined Berthon UK, from Northrop & Johnson Spain, to head up yacht sales in Spain. Joined more recently by Ben Toogood, of previous Berthon UK fame. They work closely with Berthon HQ in the UK and with Addy Daly in Spain. There is a growing fleet of brokerage yachts, both in the Balearic Islands and on the mainland. The service and guardiennage part of the business has grown hugely since 2018 and it is hard to visit Palma without seeing evidence of the Berthon crew in action. Berthon Spain are the exclusive dealers for Marex Boats in the Balearic Islands.
