Our Condolences To Those Who Lost Their Loved Ones

RibbonWe want to thank all of our clients and friends for checking in with us since last night’s attack to make sure our team and their friends and families are safe. We all are in shock and are expressing our condolences to the family and friends of those who lost their loved ones in the heart of Nice, only minutes away from our office in the port.

Christo, the artist, is doing a project this summer in the North of Italy: ‘The Floating Piers’.

“From June 18 to July 3, 2016, Christo will reimagine Italy’s Lake Iseo. The Floating Piers will consist of 70,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric, carried by a modular dock system of 200,000 high-density polyethylene cubes floating on the surface of the water.”

An excellent idea for a day trip for guests! Continue reading

Include Seville In Your Cruising Itinerary This Summer!

If you want to offer the yacht owners a different way to enjoy Spain this summer, suggest taking your vessel to Seville. Navigate your way up the Guadalquivir river (a beautiful passage lined with lush vineyards, cotton fields and fruit tree groves), and dock right in the city center.

Why take your vessel to Seville?

The birthplace of the Roman Emperors Trajan and Hadrian (an archeological site of Santiponce located just 9 km outside of the city is a big tourist attraction), Seville is a colorful gem filled with all the great things about Spain: amazing tapas and wine, beautiful architecture (grand squares, narrow meandering medieval streets and mosaic-covered riverside promenades), flamenco music (you can easily witness an impromptu performance right in the street), the controversial bullfighting and colorful religious processions.

Lunautica Spain provides support to superyachts in Seville. If you would like to get more information on the river passage and itinerary options – our Valencia office will be happy to assist. Please email: valencia@lunautica.com

New Office in Bremen

IMG_6262Our brand new Bremen office mainly focuses on providing assistance to refit and new build projects inside the Bremen shipyards, as well as managing customs and immigration, operational support and provisioning. From Bremen we cover the Baltic Sea and the German port bookings and guest entertainment in the region.

Comfort Food in Nice

Great comfort food in an unpretentious bistrot in Nice? This low key restaurant serves hearty dishes.. and bone marrow is on the menu! We constantly receive feedback from our clients and only recommend the best!

Dockage Update For The 2016 Season

After a busy winter with our new Lunautica offices in La Ciotat and Bremen, the Lunautica Nice team is getting ready for another exciting summer season on the French Riviera!

The ports are already filling up, especially the month of May – as usual a fun challenge due to the following prestigious events on the coast!

· Cannes Film Festival May 11th to 22nd 2016

· Monaco Historic Grand Prix May 13th to 15th 2016

· Monaco Grand Prix May 26th to 29th 2016

Even if your itineraries and schedules aren’t 100% confirmed yet, we at Lunautica highly recommend that we confirm as much dockage as possible now – and cancel later if you don’t need it. Please let us know at your earliest convenience which dates/ports you (may) need and we’ll be happy to take care of it!

Notice: the Yacht Club of Monaco has introduced a new booking system, and requires a down payment of 50% of any confirmed period to secure a reservation. The good news is that you’ll know already now if they have availability!

A new “Commercial Activity” declaration for French VAT free invoicing will need to be filled out in order to invoice commercially registered yachts excluding VAT for certain services!

We look forward to hearing back from you, and to hopefully supporting you with our services (charter itineraries, event planning, provisions etc) in the Med this summer! Please let us know your ETA and dockage requests as soon as possible, and we’ll also send you our updated Customs Formalities Information sheet for France and Monaco.
