With the Caribbean season just around the corner, Acquera Yachting is pleased to announce its latest strategic partnership with Erika's Yacht Agents, based in Union Island serving St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The partnership brings together two companies united by the vision of creating a greater client experience and the needs of the market.
The newly formed alliance will see the combination of our collective experience and know-how within the industry, focusing on driving excellence across the board within the agency sector. Captains will now have the reassurance of receiving the same level of service when they are in either the Med or the Caribbean thanks to information sharing and synergies designed to enhance the customer journey.
The announcement follows on from the recent partnership between Acquera Yachting and USA-Bahamas based agency United Island & Yacht. Acquera Yachting has 18 offices across eight countries: France, Monaco, Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece and Turkey. United Island & Yacht have offices in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, Florida including Rybovich Superyacht Marina and offices in Harbour Island and Nassau, Bahamas.
“We are extremely excited to be partnering with Erika’s, whose reputation precedes them. Together working as one team, we will be able to place our agencies on the best path for providing the very best services for our clients. This is our first partnership in the Caribbean and we feel we have joined forces with the very best, both Heather and Iain Grant are very well respected within the industry and I am looking forward to developing our commercial activity together,” said Stefano Tositti, CEO of Acquera Yachting.
“We are delighted to embark on a strategic partnership with Acquera Yachting and look forward to working with Stefano Tositti and the Acquera Yachting team. We hope to use this new partnership to strengthen our ability to service our Superyacht client needs with a strong Mediterranean and Eastern US trusted partner”, said Heather Grant, Managing Director of Erika’s Yacht Agents.
Erika’s Yacht Agents was founded in 1999 with two principal objectives: to offer professional and comprehensive yacht support services that were unavailable in the region and to offer employment and support opportunities to Vincentians to give back to the local community. Over the years, Erika’s has developed its service suite to assist captains, brokers and owners as they plan voyages in the Eastern Caribbean. Erika’s is a full-service yacht agency dedicated to Superyacht support. Based in Union Island, the company serves vessels in the picturesque islands and azure waters of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Erika’s was named Caribbean Superyacht Agent of the Year in 2020 by ACREW, and “Recommended by Captains” by the Superyacht Services Guide for the past 19 years running.
Acquera Yachting has 18 offices across the Mediterranean. Its strategic partner United Island & Yacht operate in Florida and the Bahamas. For more detailed information please contact them at: c[email protected].
