Throughout history, the America’s Cup has always proven to be a significant attraction for international superyacht fleets, and the 37th America’s Cup in Barcelona is expected to be one to the biggest in recent memory due to its location, timing and sporting spectacle.
To service such a demand BWA Yachting has been appointed to manage and deliver the 37th America’s Cup Superyacht Programme (ACSY) in Barcelona in 2024. BWA Yachting will manage a centralised booking system for superyacht berthing as well as offering a range of VIP concierge services and superyacht social calendar.
“Two world class marinas in Barcelona at Marina Vela and Port Forum have so far signed up to the ACSY programme and have become ‘Preferred Marinas’ for the 37th America’s Cup. ACE and BWA Yachting are looking forward to working in partnership with the other marinas in the city of Barcelona and region of Catalunya to become part of what promises to be an amazing Superyacht programme for the 37thAmerica’s Cup.”
BWA Yachting played a central role in the Superyacht Program at the 34th America’s Cup in San Francisco 2013 and at the 35th America’s Cup in Bermuda 2017.
Paschalis Patsiokas, CEO of BWA Yachting said, “We are delighted to team up with the America’s Cup family once again and look forward to developing and delivering the best AC Superyacht Program yet for Barcelona 2024.”
“The America’s Cup Superyacht Program will bring an impressive number of yachts to Barcelona. The owners, guests and crew will be welcomed as part of the America’s Cup family, enjoying premium berthing, and unique VIP experiences. The AC37 promises to be an extremely exciting event and we’re honoured to be a part of it.”“We look forward to welcome enquires and sharing the thrill of this prestigious and spectacular event with our clients, friends, and the city of Barcelona.”
As well as providing excellent racing facilities, team bases, and the technical infrastructure needed to run a successful America’s Cup event, Barcelona was also chosen as the 2024 venue because of its extensive hospitality options and incredible marinas that are perfect for welcoming a full range of local community, national and international visitors, and superyachts.
“Our vision for the AC37 is an entirely inclusive event, with a wide variety of shore-based AC race village activations and viewing options for everyone all the way through to a world class AC37 Superyacht Program where we look forward to working with BWA Yachting in delivering a quality service expected of the America’s Cup and Superyacht owners.” said ACE Barcelona CEO Grant Dalton
