Purchasing fuel around the Mediterranean

On Thursday 12th March 2015, Murray Bishop of GAC Superyacht Services gave a presentation about purchasing fuel around the Mediterranean for Captains.

During an open forum approach to the workshop, some useful information was exchanged between Murray and those in attendance about problems faced purchasing fuel in the Med but also about how to find the best prices around the Med while considering the quality of the product and the supply service.

The conversation covered purchasing options to consider for private and commercial yachts around the Med – taking in options within the EU and the options outside – with captains able to offer their practical experiences in most cases.

The main aim of the workshop was to prove how prior planning for fuel purchasing can help remove the last minute requirements and allow captains the opportunity to achieve the best possible price / quality / supply service on offer in the Mediterranean region as a whole.

GAC have been involved with the superyacht industry for over two decades but have recently expanded their involvement in the sector to cover not only fuel but port agency, canal transits and logistics. To demonstrate their strength in the yachting logistics market – GAC are currently the official logistics provider for the Volvo Ocean Race.

GAC offer a broad spectrum of services to the superyacht industry from port agency to canal transits to fuel and lube oil purchasing to logistics and beyond into crew travel solutions and crew training. But the unifying approach for all these services is offering our wealth of experience and knowledge to assist captains make the right decision based on facts.
