My love affair with Palma and Mallorca really started in 2002 when with a friend, we brought an Oyster Lightwave 48, from the UK across the channel, down the French, Spanish and Portuguese Atlantic Coasts and into the Med to Mallorca.

Off of Ibiza we were hit by a storm and had quite a vicious accidental jibe, causing a fair amount of damage, We limped into Palma Malllorca where there was a superb amount of yacht suppliers and knowledge, we spent 2 weeks sourcing parts and repairing - That was it - The lifestyle and location bit me !!

I have been around boats most of my life, first learning to sail on my Father’s Maurice Griffiths Eventide on the Blackwater Estuary in Essex . I am an RYA commercially endorsed Yachtmaster for both power and sail , having done a couple of Atlantic crossings, and have owned both Motor and Sailing Yachts.


I love the lifestyle and eclectic mix on Mallorca - where you can find a little Spanish bar or cafe, and have a coffee with the locals and fishermen, find luxurious hotels, Michelin 4 star restaurants, hike and stay in remote mountain refuge huts, find nightlife such as Pacha’s in Palma - and the cuisine is to die for.

In my spare time , I enjoy hiking and walking in the mountains, Motorsport, skiing, Touring when the opportunity arises, on my motorbike and enjoying Palma.


Palma and Mallorca offers a superb option for those wishing to have a yacht in Mediterranean climes, there is superb back up in terms of yachting infrastructure, engineering and supplies, the Ballearic islands of Mallorca, Minorca, Ibiza, Formentera to explore and being central in the Western Med and its lifestyle and culture.

My aim is to provide a : knowledgeable, professional, honest, comprehensive and prompt service to both vendors and purchasers.
