Yacht Agents in Tunisia - Local Knowledge | Superyacht Standards
With 12 years of local experience here in Tunisia combined with over 25 years of working within the superyacht industry we are well placed and qualified to ensure your stay here is a pleasant and enjoyable one.
We usually work out of the three superyacht ports in Tunisia; Port Yasmine, Port marina de Gammarth and Marina Bizerte. These ports can accommodate yachts of all sizes and have the facilities required by superyacht captains. We supply duty free fuel, provisions and customs support at all these locations on a daily basis, year round for superyachts.
There are many other ports in Tunisia but they are built for leisure boating only. However we offer a unique follow me program for yachts spending time in this culturally rich and unusual destination, providing an onshore multilingual crew to support owners, captains and guest wherever they wish to travel in Tunisia.
Please find below a sample of the services we are able to offer and should you not be able to find the specific service you require, please contact us as we are able to help with almost anything!
Customs and Immigration
As with all countries that are unfamilier, customs and immigration formalities can be a mine field. With our local knowledge and local language skills, we can help with any customs situation including entry and exit formalities, firearms, transportation of vehicles to the desert for the weekend and even helicopter internal (Tunisian) flight plan approval. For up-to-date information regarding visas please see our Visa Requirements news post.
Port Yasmine has lots to offer Owners, Guests and Crews. From internationally renowned nightclubs and restaurants, cafes, bars and shops to luxurious spas and hotels. Excursions can be arranged including guided tours to spectacular ancient roman ruins and shopping trips around the Medina in Tunis. For the more energic there is quadbiking and horse riding and even camel treks in the desert. Many yachts come to Yasmine with the plan to spend one or two days and end up extending their stay for much longer having been surprised by this stunning little country. Please contact us for additional details regarding excursions or for any other requirements you may have.

Quality is paramount. Our provisioning service provides an exceptional standard of food and drink, leaving your chef free to concentrate on preparation.
