Bachmann Group Yacht Agency: The Gold Standard
In 1974, Bachmann Group was established in Guernsey, arguably the most beautiful of the Channel Islands. Still proudly based in Guernsey, we have for more than 40 years been setting the standard when it comes to the provision of services to yacht owners and crews visiting our island, along with the nearby Alderney, Sark and Herm.
The Channel Islands offer a plethora of activities, both vocational and recreational, for visiting yachts and their crews. As a Crown Dependency, Guernsey is not part of the EU or the UK, giving the island an independent status that allows Bachmann Group to provide yacht owners with numerous benefits. These include total freedom from government service taxes and VAT, duty-free marine fuel and access to understanding, discreet and helpful customs services.
Just 20 miles from France's Normandy coast, Guernsey offers rapid access to the major shipping lanes of the English Channel and is the most northerly of the Channel Islands with the ability to welcome superyachts into its well-maintained harbours. The island is exceptionally well-connected to transport links; daily flights to international airports and reliable ferry services permit the most efficient crew changes.
Our headquarters can be found in a central location in Guernsey, allowing our dedicated and experienced employees to offer a wide range of services to the owners, guests and crews of visiting yachts. These services include:
- Immigration and Customs. A quick, efficient experience is guaranteed to anyone joining a vessel through Guernsey. Our team can help with all aspects of immigration and customs, including temporary importations, charter regulations, exports/imports, clearances and navigational laws.
- Provisions. Home to some of the world's finest restaurants, Guernsey is known as a 'paradise for gourmets'. We maintain close working relationships with an extensive local vendor network and can source and deliver top-quality food and drink directly to your vessel.
- Bunkers. We work with fuel providers in Guernsey and can arrange for duty-free marine fuel to be brought to your yacht as required.
- Concierge. We want you to enjoy your visit to its full potential and our concierge team is here to make sure it happens. Anything you need, from a tour guide to airport transport, can be swiftly arranged.
