Monaco, October 24, 2023 — BWA Yachting, a globally renowned leader in superyacht support services, is delighted to announce the opening of its new office in St. Lucia. This strategic expansion underscores BWA Yachting’s unwavering commitment to delivering unparalleled assistance to superyacht owners and their crews.

St. Lucia, nestled in the heart of the Caribbean, is a true gem of natural beauty. Its lush emerald-green landscapes are graced by the iconic twin peaks of the Pitons, which rise majestically from the sea and these volcanic spires set the stage for a stunning backdrop of rainforests and waterfalls. With vibrant coral reefs, crystal-clear waters, and a warm tropical climate, St. Lucia offers an idyllic paradise for those seeking adventure, relaxation, or romance. The island’s rich cultural heritage and warm, welcoming locals only enhance its allure, making St. Lucia a genuine Caribbean paradise where nature’s beauty and warm hospitality create an unforgettable experience for visitors.

As the Caribbean continues to grow in popularity as a prime yachting destination, BWA Yachting is dedicated to meeting the increasing demand for superyacht services. The new office in St. Lucia, complementing the main BWA Yachting Caribbean headquarters in Sint Maarten and the well-known offices in Anguilla, Antigua, St Barth and Puerto Rico, will be a beneficial location for superyacht clients exploring this stunning region.

COX & CO, a well-known St. Lucian company, was identified as the best partner to work with. Herman Joseph and his team of highly experienced professionals will head up the operations team in St. Lucia and their local expertise will be invaluable in assisting superyachts visiting the island. Lucille Frye, Managing Partner and head of BWA Yachting Caribbean, said, “We are thrilled to start working more closely with Cox & Co: their unwavering commitment to excellence, a track record of delivering outstanding results, a unified vision, and a stellar team, make them the ideal choice to join forces.” Frye continues “Our new office in St. Lucia will enable us to better serve our clients, ensuring they have a remarkable and hassle-free yachting experience, and we look forward to welcoming our clients there this upcoming season! “

St. Lucia’s central position in the Eastern Caribbean makes it an ideal starting point for superyachts looking to explore the southern Caribbean and is also a suitable midway base for yachts chartering throughout the Caribbean region. Services on offer from BWA Yachting St. Lucia will include all Port Agency and Formality Services, Duty Free International Provisioning and Local Provisioning, Concierge Services including Custom Tours and Excursions for Guests & Crew, Fuel Bunkering and Banking Transactions. “As we start this promising collaboration with BWA Yachting, we embark on a journey of shared vision and collective energy. St. Lucia’s lush landscapes, warm hospitality, and vibrant culture are the heart and soul of the Caribbean. This partnership is not just about business; it’s about sharing the magic of our island with the world. As a St. Lucian, I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of this journey,” said Catherine Cooper, COO at COX & Co. Paschalis Patsiokas, CEO of BWA Yachting, expressed his enthusiasm for this expansion, stating, “The Caribbean has always been a cherished destination for superyacht owners, and we’re excited to enhance our support in the region.”

This exciting development reaffirms BWA Yachting’s status as a global leader in superyacht support services. With offices around the world, the company remains committed to providing unmatched assistance to superyachts in every corner of the globe.
