7th March 2017: OneOcean Port Vell, which has received augmented superyacht berth sales interest after the recent sale of a 160m berth, has announced that Nizar Tagi will join as Sales Director.
Tagi brings a unique blend of qualifications and industry knowledge to OneOcean Port Vell. As a seasoned yachting connoisseur, he has worked with some of the most prominent names in the yachting industry including George Nicholson the Yachting Guru at Solidmark France in Cannes. Before joining OneOcean Port Vell, Tagi worked with Benetti shipyard – the world’s leading yacht builder, managed Porto Montenegro berth sales and sold superyachts for premier brokerage company Ocean Independence in Monaco. He has also successfully sold numerous pre-owned yachts and managed new construction projects.
The marina, located in the heart of Barcelona, is widely acknowledged by yacht owners and captains as a preeminent superyacht destination since major transformation work was completed at the end of 2014, following a €100 million investment by UK-based Salamanca Group.
2016 was another strong year for the marina with significant growth in the number of yachts visiting the marina compared to 2015: an 85% increase in the 80m category and 742% rise in yachts over 100m+.
General Manager of OneOcean Port Vell, Paul Cook commented, “I am delighted that Nizar Tagi has joined the team at OneOcean Port Vell. Tagi is well placed to address the surge in recent demand after the 160m berth sale. Our client was impressed with the investment potential and opportunity to entertain guests in the area and this has piqued interest. There has been a notable need for superyachts to find a secure and safe space in the Mediterranean.”
“Using first-hand experience and knowledge from the superyacht industry, Tagi will focus on client relationships; maximising recent leads and fulfilling owner’s needs. He is an ambassador of OneOcean Port Vell” he concludes.
