S /Y MIA CARA 34m Alloy yacht

Mia Cara

Dear Paul,

I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you and your team for making our recent refit experience in STP. Without your influence, extensive local knowledge and professionalism, we would have had a very challenging time completing the scope of work undertaken.

our suggestion, and subsequent explanation in regards to the advantages of entering into the TPA status, saved us tens of thousands of Euros and was a painless exercise. We, and the Owner of MIA CARA, cannot thank you enough for navigating that bureaucracy for our benefit.

I will certainly recommend Shore Marine to any other Captain contemplating a refit period in your area. You have put together a great team and everyone of you saved us time and money. It was a pleasure working with you and we look forward to a long lasting relationship.

“Shore marine offer a great service and support to vessels looking to be more cost effective during refit and maintenance.

Before the yacht arrived into Palma pre arrival info was sent out to clear up any confusion with regards to TPA. On arrival

The team met with us and talked it all through, weekly reports and summaries were supplied and the process of payments

Whilst inside the TPA were made quickly and without hassle. Once the TPA was closed out they still offered help in clearance into a Port outside the EU and I feel like the team were always there to help with any questions. I would recommend Shore Marine to friends

Or colleagues without hesitation.”

Shore Marine handled my T.P.A. during the winter of 2017/18. I will be using them again this winter 2018 /19. Do I need to say more?

During the winter period of 2017 / 2018 I used Shore Marine as my TPA agent. We had an extensive refit using numerous contractors and suppliers. Simon Aston was my main contact with Shore Marine, and he made the process of setting up the TPA very straight forward. He explained the necessary documentation to open the TPA, and once acquired from my management he took care of the rest. From the start, Simon made the rules regarding the TPA very clear and he helped me set up accounts with Chandleries using the TPA number. We had a personal TPA bank account that I had direct access to view with internet banking, which made everything very clear to see when funds were arriving and invoices were being paid. We set up a clear procedure for the approval and payment of invoices which worked very well and meant no invoice surprises. At the end of the TPA we were required to leave EU waters, and Simon helped with setting up the clearance agent in Algeria. The whole experience of working with Shore Marine was excellent, Simon handled everything with the authorities which left me to be able to manage the projects. I would certainly recommend Shore Marine as a very good TPA agent.
