GRUPO BARCO stems from the merger of three companies, Barco Proyectos Náuticos, Casco Proyectos Náuticos and Yacht Special Projects & Consulting, all founded by Alex Casares (Captain and Bachelor in Marine Navigation) and Sergio Piñole (Bachelor in Marine Engineering).
The first of these companies was the natural evolution of Alexpalma, created in 2015 by Alex, who saw that the Balearic yachting industry could offer a lot more and become much more competent on a Mediterranean level. As a result, he joined forces with Sergio and founded Barco in 2017. Meanwhile, Casco and Yacht followed in 2019.
Rob van Wieringen (Mechanical Engineer and Captain) joined the group in September 2019. His technical and professional career provides a huge dose of added value to the project.
Great performance and quality work are the two cornerstones of our projects with large yachts. We boast our own specialised workforce, as well as a fully fitted workshop to guarantee these standards and keep track of all stages of a project.
We solve problems in mechanics, hydraulics, pipework, engineering and metalworks when many others have run out of options. This is thanks to our human team, our resources, our local contacts and our experience gained over the years.
We work with partners and professional companies in the yachting industry that follow the same working methodology in keeping with our requirements and values. We ensure that projects and specific jobs meet the expectations, deadlines and quality standards demanded both by the client and the luxury yacht industry.
Our vast experience led to the idea of creating a workshop with a specialised workforce and of showing how the essence of our work is reflected in the way of understanding the technical specs of a yacht and what this means for her owner. We’re a technically experienced and qualified team that understands that we work for a discerning client who loves their yacht.
We value teamwork above everything else, as without it the end result isn’t the same.
