Summary of our 2021

The end of 2021 is approaching. And with it, the time to look back and take stock.

It has been a special year, full of changes and challenges for all of us. We have experienced many moments: good moments, not so good moments, new experiences, etc. We have also met many incredible people, new products… But especially we have learned, grown and enjoyed another year. And this has been possible thanks to all of you.

We are very grateful to you for showing us your trust for another year. You are an essential part of Camber Marine and, therefore, you are part of our highlights of the year:

– Darik Marine celebrates its first year. Starting Darik Marine in Sa Ràpita was a before and after. It is a very special place for us and, being able to offer our services for small and medium size boats in the Club Náutico de Sa Ràpita, has allowed us to grow in every way.

Palma Boat Show. The Palma Boat Show was the first Boatshow after the pandemic. And if we were already excited to witness an event of this category, experiencing it at home was a real treat.  We were representing our most important brands: Volvo Penta and Humphree. In addition, we had a special visit from Volvo Penta Spain. Undoubtedly, a memorable experience.

Collaboration with the Palma Aquarium Foundation. At Camber Marine we have always worked with brands that respect the environment. This year we have also had the pleasure of collaborating with the Palma Aquarium Foundation helping sea turtles in the Balearic Sea. A special thank you to all those who helped us by buying the book “Second Chances”. The sea is our passion and there is no better way to show it than by taking care of it.

Presentation of our Demo Boat. After many hours of work, nerves and dedication, we were able to present our Demo Boat equipped with our main brands: Volvo Penta, Humphree, Propspeed and Dokensip. For us it is essential that any customer can see and experience in person the products they want to install on their boat. And our Demo is the best example.

Boatshow Cannes. The first Boatshow that our Demo Boat experienced was, no more and no less, the Cannes Yachting Festival; the main nautical event in Europe where the latest developments in the recreational boating sector are presented in a luxurious setting in the Bay of Cannes. They were incredible few days where we were able to do some excellent sea trials and share experiences with great yachting professionals.

Annual meeting Volvo Penta Centers of Spain and Portugal. We had the pleasure of hosting the first face-to-face meeting of the Volvo Penta Centers of Spain and Portugal at our facilities, after the pandemic. During the meeting, we shared all the latest news about the brand, and we tested the “Assisted Docking” in our demo boat with our colleagues, great professionals and better people. We would like to highlight the visit of the Vice President of Volvo Penta, Hanna Ljungqvist, who came from Gothenburg to talk about the after sales strategy for the coming years. All in all, a great success!

– Introduction of new brands: Tiburón, OXE Marine and FIM. And we could not end the year in any other way than growing and extending the family. Thanks to their great demand, we have incorporated the Menorcan llaüts firm Tiburón, the Swedish firm OXE MARINE and the Italian firm FIM.

Tiburón llaüts are manufactured and designed with noble and high-quality materials, in the purest Menorcan style. They are extraordinary boats with which to feel the pleasure of sailing and enjoying the sea. And as we share pleasure, we are official distributors of the brand!

OXE stands out for its high-performance diesel outboards, built and designed for demanding commercial use. And we are already official distributors in Spain!

FIM is all about luxury and sportiness. It “unites the sweet Italian life with a passion for engines in a synthesis of elegance and performance”, says the company itself, and we are also official distributors throughout Spain!

There is no doubt that it has been a great year, although we hope that the next one will be even better. Always with you all.

The World Yachting Event – Cannes Yachting Festival

To be called the world yachting event is saying something. Every September since 1977, the Yachting Festival has been the first show of the season and Europe’s premier yachting event. In an elegant and luxurious setting, the professionals of the yachting industry inaugurate the season and present their new products in the glittering Bay of Cannes. And, of course, we had to be there as Camber Marine.

This year was even more special if that’s possible. The hope, the energy, and the illusion of this year and the previous one, which finally had to be cancelled, were united.

The Cannes Yachting Festival 2021 was held from 7 to 12 September in the Vieux Port and Port Canto. It was six days of great intensity, but also of pure happiness.

In our case, we were at the Vieux Port with our demo boat, surrounded by other colleagues from the sector and the best shipyards in the world. In total there were 450 motor boats between 5 and 45 metres in length with many new features.

Undoubtedly, an unforgettable experience where we enjoyed what we love so much in one of the oldest and most prestigious ports of the Côte d’Azur.

The ideal place to present our demo yacht

When the opportunity presented itself, we didn’t think twice. It was the time and the place. We set up our demo boat and set sail for Cannes.

During the Yachting Festival we were at the PAN 317 stand presenting our demo boat and doing sea trials for all the participants. There is no better way to present our star products and to test their functionality and effectiveness at sea. Our boat is equipped with:

  • Volvo Penta IPS 10
  • Volvo Penta D6 – 480
  • Humphree Active Stabilisation
  • Humphree Interceptors X-600
  • Humphree Fins 0.6 m2

Sailing and sea trials in the Vieux Port together with people who share the same passion as us was undoubtedly one of the most rewarding moments of our professional experience.

Volvo Penta & Humphree

Thanks to our extensive experience in the nautical sector, at Camber Marine we only work with the best brands to offer you reliability, comfort and the best experience at sea. And, obviously, our demo boat is also equipped with these brands:

Volvo Penta

Since 2008 we are Volvo Penta Center in Mallorca and Menorca. We take care of the sale of Volvo Penta marine engines and spare parts. The engines represent the perfect combination of power and versatility and provide long-lasting and reliable performance.

The best way to see for yourself is on our demo boat, powered by:

  • Volvo Penta IPS 10: the perfect example of superior performance while maintaining comfort and manoeuvrability.
  • Volvo Penta D6 – 480: this engine offers great reliability, exceptional fuel economy and low maintenance costs.

We also have our Volvo Penta Shop, where you can get any spare part for your engine 24 hours a day – and with a comprehensive warranty! Visit our shop.

Humphree

We have been working with Humphree since 2010 and, since 2016, we are also an Official Authorised Humphree Distributor in Spain. Thanks to this, we make a difference at sea. Humphree stabilisers provide unprecedented stability, performance and reliability. On our demo boat, equipped with three Humphree systems, we no longer remember what pitch and roll are:

  • Humphree Active Stabilisation. This feature eliminates the feeling of seasickness and fatigue at the touch of a button.
  • Humphree Interceptors X-600. This series of interceptors is perfect for achieving control of dynamic hull movements on boats from 6 to 18 metres.
  • Humphree Fins 0.6 m2. Fins achieve full stabilisation from zero speed to maximum speed.

Maintain your boat with top brands

Our demo boat is just an example of what your boat can look like. At Camber Marine we take care of the necessary maintenance so that all you have to worry about is going out to sea and enjoying yourself.

In addition to the repowering with Volvo Penta parts and the installation of Humphree stabilisation systems, we also carry out other services such as application of Propspeed antifouling paint, installation of Dokensip wireless security systems, etc.

Maintenance

Start and enjoy? Yes, you just have to take care of it, we carry out the comprehensive maintenance beforehand to make it so. To do this, we cover all the services that your boat needs: from hull cleaning, antifouling application, fiber repairs, battery maintenance, to engine repairs or complete re-engines.

In other words, we fine-tune your boat so that you can fully enjoy your favorite time: “going sailing”. Next, we detail the services specifically for yachts, sailboats and boats:

Cleaning

If you are in the Balearic Islands, you will have already experienced the well-known mud rains. These are the main culprits for exterior dirt. While fun, joy and quality of life are responsible for the dirt inside. At Camber Marine we take care of leaving your boat looking like new, both inside and out. To do this, we use careful techniques and the most prominent brands in the industry to guarantee you the best result.

Mechanics

Being thrown in the middle of the sea can be very dangerous. To avoid this, at Camber Marine we carry out an exhaustive diagnosis and maintenance of your engine before starting the new season: we change the necessary parts with original spare parts and repair any possible damage. We also do remotorizations, where we stand out as the Volvo Penta Center in Mallorca and Menorca. And there is no engine that can resist us, we work: inboard, outboard, gasoline or diesel.

Retouching

Fiber and carpentry

What may seem like a simple flaw in the fiber or carpentry of your boat, can end in a worst-case scenario. For this reason, the maintenance of the fiber and the wood is very important. At Camber Marine we check the hull for signs of osmosis, we repair the fiberglass and Gelcoat, if necessary, and we do all kinds of work on teak decks. Your boat will be ready for a safe and pleasant navigation.

Painting

A face lift always comes in handy. But painting and polishing your boat have more advantages than aesthetics, such as: fuel savings, more speed … At Camber Marine we work so that you can enjoy your boat in every way. We take care of: polishing to maintain the good condition of the gelcoat, painting of dead work and maintenance of living work, application of Propspeed antifouling and also the painting of parts and accessories. That is, what your boat needs to look like new and improve its efficiency.

We know how important your boat is to you. Therefore, we protect and take care of it with our services as if it were ours. Thus, you will only have to worry about enjoying the time of “going sailing” to the fullest, always safely and efficiently.

A memorable event – Boat Show 2021

The Palma Boat Show 2021 was much more than a boat show for everyone. It was Europe’s first face-to-face boating event in the aftermath of the pandemic.

It was four days of great excitement and hope for the maritime sector on an international level. We, in particular, were looking forward to them more than ever. After more than a year without any on-site fairs, the event was held in Palma’s Moll Vell, a familiar setting for us, where we have our support tent (in the STP).

We welcomed hundreds of people during the different days and took advantage of the event to promote, publicise, and showcase our main brands, products, and novelties. Therefore, we can affirm that we had high expectations of participation, but they exceeded.

Now that the Palma Boat Show 2021 is over, we can only thank all those who came to visit us: friends, family, clients, representatives, etc. Not forgetting the main organisers of the event and their hard work: the Institute for Business Innovation of the Balearic Islands (IDI) and the Balearic Yacht Brokers Association (BYBA). It is all of you who have made these four days a memorable event.

 

The real protagonists: Volvo Penta and Humphree

From Camber Marine, we represented two of our big brands, Volvo and Humphree, on SYP40/41 stands. We are Volvo Penta Center in Mallorca and Menorca and official distributors of Humphree in Spain.

Volvo Penta

Our Volvo Penta stand featured our products, discounts and special visits. We had a D8-IPS800 engine, Easy Boating accessories for easy navigation, discounts for both accessories and engine replacement and detailed information on any of our Volvo Penta products and services. We also had the pleasure to receive the privileged visit of Volvo Penta Spain, true professionals with whom we could share knowledge and great experiences.

Humphree

In the Humphree part, the different simulators of the brand stood out. The difference between sailing with and without Humphree stabilisers is so great that we decided to show it to the clients through simulators. For this, we brought a fin stabiliser, interceptors and a control panel.

Other brands

Although they did not have their stand, other brands such as Propspeed and Dokensip were also present. Propspeed is the ideal and essential antifouling to take care of the boat’s propellers, while Dokensip has become the only safety system on the market with 100% wireless sensors.

Palma Aquarium Foundation Collaboration

There was also room to show our most supportive side and our commitment to the environment. As for collaborating members of the Palma Aquarium Foundation, we cooperate with the conservation of the seas and oceans worldwide, especially the Balearic Sea and sea turtles.

Throughout the event, we had a small stand where all interested participants were informed about the charity campaign of the Palma Aquarium Foundation, and many of them helped by buying the book “Second Chances”. This book deals with the rescue of sea turtles and shows how, thanks to the Foundation’s Recovery Centre, the different species can have a second chance. The 100% of the money raised from the sale of these copies was donated to the Foundation, to rescue many more turtles.

Finally, we would like to thank you all, once again, for your visit and involvement in this significant event for us. If we had to sum up the Palma Boat Show and the Balearic Yacht Show 2021 in just one word, we have no doubt which one we would choose: success. And all thanks to you.

See you next year!
