Attending boat and diving shows means a lot of talking to strangers and introducing your brand and concept to them. Every so often you are lucky enough to find someone who shares your values and passions. Jose Escaño, founder and CEO of PETER Diving met one such person way back at BOOT in Dusseldorf in 2015. Guy Norrish was representing Marina Estrella a yacht charter and brokerage firm at the Azimut stand and a chance meeting led the two to discover a shared love for diving and their mutual home of Mallorca. Guy was very enthusiastic about the PETER Diving System and keen to try it under the water.
In 2015 the PETER Yacht Kit was not yet in production so professionally a partnership was not yet possible but Guy remained a firm supporter of PETER Diving. When guests participating in PETER Tours began requesting their own PETER Diving System for their boats a new chapter was opened and development of the PETER Yacht System began.
Marina Estrella are the leading yacht brokerage in the Iberian Peninsula, the biggest sellers of yachts in Spain. originally founded in Catalonia in 1972 by the Estrella family the company now has offices throughout the Iberian coastline and the Balearics. They are also exclusive distributors of world renowned yachting names such as Azimut and Benetti both here in Spain and in Portugal.
The Marina Estrella philosophy is based on maximising enjoyment at sea. They strive to take care of all requests and problems for their customers so that nothing may come between them and pure enjoyment of their boat. Guy Norrish, manager and broker at Marina Estrella Portals, based at the glamorous Puerto Portals just outside of Palma in Mallorca and a stone's throw from our own flagship - PETER Point Punta Negra -, saw the potential that the PETER Yacht System had in helping Marina Estrella meet their high standards of thorough and personal service. Guy joined us down at the Punta Negra Hotel for a try dive and loved the freedom of having minimal gear to carry on your body and the lightweight and compact nature of the PETER Yacht Carbon Kit which means it can be stored easily on any kind of boat.
The PETER Yacht Kit has now been available through Marina Estrella for almost a year and has allowed Guy and his team to offer an alternative watertoy to their clients that also doubles up as a useful tool for maintenance and emergencies so that they truly can make the most of every moment onboard.
