Moravia Yachting is a yacht brokerage house that has been a mainstay in Monaco’s Port Hercule since the 1960s, but its origins actually go back over 150 years. The company opened its first office in 1962 in the Principality of Monaco, providing services and materials to ships on a global scale, which eventually led to them playing a key role in yachting.
In 2020, Moravia underwent a transformation and relaunch and now boasts a discerning team of the very best industry specialists in several locations around the globe, namely; Monaco, London, Fort Lauderdale, the Netherlands, Italy, Russia and now Palma. With this level of expertise, Moravia Yachting has become a recognised and trusted name in the world of yacht brokerage. With its already solid reputation for discretion and professionalism, Moravia Yachting has been entrusted to work on behalf of some of the most prestigious and exacting clients in both purchasing and sales capacities.
With an ethos of privacy, discretion and professionalism, Moravia Yachting takes a highly personalised approach to fulfil the demands of its clients to the finest detail. Keeping abreast of client aspirations, the team are able to offer seamless sales and purchasing services, matching their clients with the perfect yacht to suit their needs. Moravia’s exceptional service also applies to its personalised yacht charter services as they are able to offer a vast range of luxury yacht charter options. This means that any charter a client embarks upon will be orchestrated to their tastes with absolute perfection to ensure the guests have a once in a lifetime voyage in ultimate luxury.
Moravia Yachting launched their services in Palma de Mallorca earlier this year and is delighted to bring its specialist brokerage skills to the increasingly popular Balearics. Caroline Hillier, who represents Moravia’s charter retail division in Palma is looking forward to going full-steam ahead into the charter season, and is very proud to be representing Moravia. She explained what it means for the company now that they have a strong presence in the Balearics:
“It makes perfect sense to expand Moravia’s unique offering to Palma, as it’s already a top charter destination with an international expat clientele, as well as being a well-established superyacht hub. Mallorca, and indeed, the whole of the Balearics make for an incredible yachting experience with the diversity of the different islands and the exceptional cruising possibilities. The spectacular backdrop of Mallorca’s north-west coastline offers an incredible view, with the UNESCO-listed Tramuntana mountain range plunging dramatically into the pristine waters, and around the whole of the island there are so many pretty coves and beautiful beaches that can only be reached by boat.
To the south-east there is the hedonistic party lifestyle and laid-back bohemian vibe of Ibiza and in total contrast, the low-key rustic chic and serenity of Formentera. To the east is the relaxed and mostly rural Menorca. There really is something for everyone in this region and that’s what makes Palma such a key location in the world of yacht charters.”

In 2017, Moravia Yachting was acquired by internationally renowned management company, Hill Robinson. With their shared ethos of providing the very highest quality of service and care to their clients, it was fitting to join forces as it now gives Moravia larger global reach and extra presence in Jeddah, Antibes and the Gold Coast, Australia.
Caroline: “I’m delighted to be part of the well-established and respected group that Hill Robinson is and to have this great opportunity of working with such an experienced and knowledgeable team. With Hill Robinson already being an important company in Palma’s yachting industry, it’s a privilege to play a key role in building the Moravia name in Mallorca with their support. I’m very much looking forward to utilising my knowledge and expertise to optimise added value and provide the most extraordinary charter experiences for my clients.”
Hill Robinson also has a noteworthy charter yacht available here in Mallorca this summer, SY Hyperion. This is a beautifully elegant 47.4 metre sailing yacht with hull design by German Frers and built by Royal Huisman in 1998. With a design perfect for blue water cruising, Hyperion is also a competitor to be reckoned with and has a great reputation within the world of superyacht regattas. Being able to offer Hyperion as both a luxurious cruiser and regatta race charter is a rare and incredibly exciting opportunity for both Moravia’s team and more importantly, all those who have the good fortune to sail on her.
With her classically-styled and spacious setting of traditional wood panelling with sumptuous beige and cream upholstery, combined with the many windows situated around the main structure, benefitting the interior space with plenty of natural light which perfectly showcases the elegance of this stunning sailing yacht. There is accommodation for 6 guests within a cabin configuration of 1 x king, 1 x Queen and 1 x twin and they can enjoy a split-level saloon; the upper level consisting of formal dining and lounge areas with steps leading to a relaxed and cosy piano lounge on the lower level. There is also a swim platform and an additional extending bathing platform where you can comfortably enter the water and experience plenty of fun with the great selection of sea toys, including snorkelling gear, kite surfing equipment, water skis, inflatables, wakeboards and fishing equipment. There is also a 5.4m McMullen 165hp diesel tender and Zodiac inflatable tender with 2-stroke Yamaha 40 engine.
With Moravia’s presence now in Mallorca and the charter season in full-swing, this is sure to be a successful year for Caroline and the Moravia Yachting team.
