Judging by the enthusiastic recommendations we continue to pick up annually for Simon and Shore Support from Superyacht Captains of both mega motor and sailing yachts in St.Maarten, he is undoubtedly highly regarded as being an excellent contact for all manner of yacht services and increasingly in yacht provisioning.
Tanya Gavin heads the provisioning section, specializing in fresh produce, seafood and quality meats from both a network of local fishermen and directly from wholesalers in Rotterdam, Paris and Miami.
Simon founded Shore Support in 2009, following two years as a partner in a former well known St.Maarten ships agency. His history as the Caribbean manager of Sunsail and the Moorings yacht charter companies have contributed to Simon's extensive experience in the Caribbean region, and also in his ability to assist in high pressure situations and comply with any ‘fast turn around’ requirements.
This excellent reputation is due in part to Simon’s ability to assist with technical issues, through his unique approach of assisting yachts by speedy tender out on the water, completing clearances whilst yachts enter the bridge... and making deliveries to yachts at anchor, not just to anchorages in and around St.Maarten but also, having invested in more supply boats, making food and parts deliveries to Anguilla and St.Barths on a regular basis. ‘On the ground’ assistance is also available in Anguilla, St.Barths and St.Kitts, although the Shore Support Team continue to assist yachts throughout the Caribbean.
John Sinke has an extensive technical background, having run a boatyard and Yanmar dealership in Holland before moving to the Caribbean 16 years ago, and is also a licensed Bauer Compressor service agent. Specializing in undertaking all challenging projects aboard, Simon is also increasingly called upon for logistical help from the mega sailing cruiser / racers... and from their central office location in Simpson Bay Marina - and a Superyacht equipment warehouse storage facility - the Shore Support team are ideally located to provide the full spectrum of yacht and concierge services including fuel bunkering. A full time Yanmar and Volvo certified mechanic at the Shore Support workshop on the Isle de Sol Marina offers mechanical services including tender repairs and rebuilds, and center console boat Jetski and tender rentals are also offered to visiting Superyachts.
