About

World Yacht Group

After spending some years in the yachting world, a naval engineering degree and with entrepreneurial skills, in 2009, Joan Plana Palao decided it was time to found something special. Networking with like-minded individuals in the business world was always a natural environment for Joan and boats was his lifetime passion.

It all came together at the right time and fell into place perfectly when Joan teamed up with Irena Prager, a visionary for global markets with a creative mind who had successfully done business with people from different continents and who had psychology background which helped her better understand client’s needs and the best ways to serve them. WYG first started in Barcelona, Spain and two years we opened the partner company in Los Angeles, California so we could properly operate in Europe and USA.

More about WYG:

2009 & 2010 were challenging economical times in the world so we started by creating a niche and unique service in the business, World Yacht Hotel, a yachting accommodation platform where people can book staterooms on yachts world-wide.

Everyone was so impressed by the client services and custom tailored approach that yacht owners and retail clients were asking us if we would manage and charter yachts for them as well. Of course we were happy to do it, after all, it was our top area of expertise. This part of the business grew exponentially with high demand so we developed it into what World Yacht Group is today, a global yachting firm dedicated to charters, sales and management.
