Worldwide Coverage. Local Expertise.
Inspired by the unlimited possibilities of the world’s largest archipelago Catalano Shipping Services and the A-Gents network have provided the highest levels of service to superyachts throughout the Mediterranean for decades.
Catalano Shipping Services decided the time was right to offer the same levels of service to those who ventured East and West. First, we established a marine hub in Singapore – for hundreds of years the staging-post for voyages into the tropics – with CSS Singapore, a team highly focused of providing fuel, provisions, spare parts and services. In short, everything you need before heading out into the expanse of Asia and the Pacific beyond.
The next logical step was Indonesia: the world’s most diverse and untouched cruising destination. The final frontier. The Ring of Fire. A land beyond time.
To cover superyachts through 15,000 islands, 3 time zones and 600 airports requires an experienced team and Catalano Shipping Services Indonesia has put together the most accomplished and experienced team with decades of combined experience in the country and region.
Now in 2020, the opening of Catalano Shipping Services New Zealand premier superyacht shoreside support agency in New Zealand. Based in Auckland, the main superyacht hub, our yacht services cover all aspects of shore support; such as immigration, customs formalities, obtaining charter permits and guiding through the local tax policies, provisioning, bunkering, uniform supply, itineraries, crew placement, management of refits and much more.
