As with the nature of the sport, it comes up very quickly, and now is a good time to consider if your owner or one of your clients would like to participate in the blue riband event of the F1 calendar and the essential start to the summer season in the Mediterranean.
The berth rates are now out and initial applications have just started, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at Catalano Shipping Monaco in order to discuss your requirements and get ahead of everyone else, while being content and comfortable with having everything taken care of for you. The deadline for applications is the 28th of February 2020.
What is really worth considering at this point, is that as ever, we operate on a no accepted berth - no fee basis…And in order to get first in line to procure a prime berth in the port, all that is needed is to discuss and register a dossier for a particular yacht and only pay the statutory port handling fee (258€).
This is the only charge which would be due if the proposed berth is not accepted by the client - Potentially a very good investment by all accounts. Our motivation and incentive is to get the best possible position and a happy client.
We have excellent knowledge of the process, good connections, easy and transparent communication and a great understanding of how to get the perfect position for your yacht. Please also note that our service is not just getting you the right berth, but also inclusive of our full range of services and assistance before and during the yacht’s participation in the Grand Prix.
When the occasion arises, we can also advise and assist with all the additional factors and considerations which come into play ; from grandstand and terrace tickets, transport and tender access to restaurant reservations, entertainment and events, flowers and supplies.
Additionally, please note that the 2020 Historic Grand Prix will be taking place next year in Monaco from the 8th to 10th of May and there are comparatively much cheaper 4 day port rates available for yachts and clients who are interested – We love this event and it can also be a great and good value introduction to clients who may want to try the F1 GP at some point with good viewing positions, and a lot of nostalgia!
