Travelling to a foreign country to buy a sailboat where they speak a different language seemed like an adventure but also a potential challenge. It was truly an adventure, but the challenging aspects were eliminated by the phenomenal work and effort of the Marine Team at Club Nautico de Valencia.
Paco and Barbara did everything, from helping me find the sailing yacht I wanted, to negotiating a great deal, followed by helping with the transaction and assisting in getting me settled into my new environment in Valencia.
When fellow Canadians ask why I went all the way to Spain to find my boat, I can say there were opportunities, but when they ask why I bought my boat from here, I can comfortably say it was truly because of the amazing work of Paco and Barbara.
I bought my boat, a Jeanneau 46, through the services of Marine Team.
Marine Team is a highly professional company that offers excellent customer service
Paco and Barbara, of Marine Team, form a dynamic, competent and experienced team, always available and attentive to the needs of the client and above all, a team we can trust I would only summarize that they are among the best brookerage professionals in the nautical world

Wir kauften eine Bavaria 40 Ocean über das „MarineTeam“. Kompetenter, fairer und geduldiger kann man sich Beratung und Unterstützung nicht wünschen. Vielen Dank an Barbara und Paco für den Service auch nach dem Kauf! Empfehlung: uneingeschränkt!! Marion und Tobias Weißflog
Habitant à 600 km j’ai confié en 2018 la vente de mon bateau Bénéteau SENSE 50 à MARINE TEAM.
Barbara et Paco sont deux très belles personnes passionées par leur métier et extrêmement professionnelles.
Barbara parle parfaitement plusieurs langues dont le français et l’italien et c’est ainsi que mon bateau a été vendu très rapidement à un italien pour le ramener dans son pays.
Un grand merci à Barbara et à Paco pour leur gentillesse et tous les services rendus !

It’s a great pleasure to work with Paco Maldonado and Bàrbara.
During the buying process they supported us very well with their expertise, service mentality and passion for yachts. They catered well to the needs of us as buyer and the seller and have found mutually acceptable solutions.
Paco has supported us very closely in getting the identified required repairs done. The result of the repairs was to our satisfaction. We can recommend the services of Paco and Bàrbara
il suffit de rencontrer Barbara et Paco pour vite conclure un achat de bateau, en toute confiance. Ce sont de vrais professionnels!
Quand je les ai rencontrés, l’achat du bateau était devenu secondaire à coté de la relation amicale qui s’est instaurée entre nous.
Nous avons acheté un bateau à Valencia et avons navigués jusqu’au Maroc.
Ce couple d’amis a demandé de nos nouvelles tout au long du périple. Je suis sur que nous achèterons d’autres bateaux par leur intermédiaire en toute confiance.
En bref je les recommande vivement!
Merci Barbara & Paco! À bientôt au Maroc!
Bueno ante todo no se como agradeceros tanto aguante y tan buena disposición en resolver nuestras inquietudes y nuestra desconfianza al no disponer del barco en nuestra isla y poderlo ver físicamente. Tal vez nos daba un poco de pereza desplazarnos hasta Alicante desde Mallorca para aventurarnos en nuestra ilusión pero optamos en dar a Marine Team un voto de confianza y no nos arrepentimos para nada. El trato fue extremadamente exquisito y el barco tal como nos comentó Paco era digno de ver. El seguimiento a nuestras peticiones y la solución a todas ellas ha hecho que recomendemos a cualquier persona que necesite sus servicios los contrate sin duda alguna. Nos llevamos un buen barco y una nueva amistad que esperemos perdure mucho tiempo. Agradecidos y muchas singladuras felices por delante. Saludos , Apolonia y Juan.
Thank you so much Paco and Barbara for the service and attention we have Received from you both when buying our Grand Soliel. Nothing was to much trouble for you before we purchased the boat and we are so pleased that this has also continued after we took delivery. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company and wish you both every success for the future.
A la retraite et en fin d’année 2015 je décidais de renouer avec la voile que j’avais abandonné pendant ma carrière professionnelle. Encore fallait-il trouver le bateau qui correspondait à mon programme et à mon budget ? Il y a des jours où tout vous sourit, Marine Team ce sont deux beaux sourires Barbara et Paco, agrémentés de compétences, de gentillesse et de disponibilité, que j’ai eu la chance de rencontrer. Grâce à eux je suis l’heureux propriétaire d’un First 38…
Mais chut… C’est un secret !
Paco and Barbara
Thank you both for all your help during our purchase of the yacht Wind Song and for your excellent after sales service. Your professionalism and dedication to customer satisfaction are without doubt the best we have ever experienced. It has been a most pleasurable experience on both a commercial and personal level.
Our very best regards
Allan and Colin
Si quieres vender o comprar un barco, no dudes en ponerte en manos de Paco y Bárbara de Marine Team. Mi experiencia con ellos, en un sector tan “complejo”, ha sido un diez tanto por el excelente trato, como por la preocupación e interés que han demostrado en todo momento, haciendo todo mucho más fácil. Sin ninguna duda, volveré a contar con ellos siempre que me plantee comprar o vender un barco
Estamos encantados con nuestra nueva embarcación el ” As de Guìa” pero más aún con vuestra entrega, dedicación y profesionalidad! Tenéis dos nuevos amigos para lo que queráis…una abrazo fuerte a los dos!!!
Magnifico tándem profesional y personal con ” Barbara y Paco “.
Pendientes de cada detalle en cada momento y con un trato exquisito.
Marine-Team so good!!
Looking in Spain for a Dufour 32, we found “marineteam”. Even in this case of a relative small transaction they spent unlimited time , not only to please the seller, but certainly also to support us, as buyers. Objective,open , professional are keywords. Beside that Paco and Barbara are very pleasant people to work with!
This spring I successfully sold my Centurion 61 Sloop through Marine Team. It was always a pleasure to work with Barbara and Paco. To me it was very important to have a team in this project that is not only very professional but also shares the passion for sailing. Thank You Paco and Barbara.
I am writing on behalf of the Adventure365 team, and with regards to the general cooperation with Marine Team based in Valencia.
We are extremely satisfied with the overall cooperation and the level of service, customer approach, professionalism and always the positive attitude. Those key elements make the Marine Team outstanding in their area of their expertise, and for sure leaves great impression after all.
It is a truly pure pleasure to work with such a good team as Marine Team. Special thanks to Paco and Barbara.
Mi agradecimiento a Paco Maldonado por su ayuda y profesionalidad, desde el primer contacto que tuvimos. Recomiendo 100% a Marine Team, a parte de conseguir una transacción satisfactoria para ambas partes, el trato humano ha sido espectacular. Espero contar con su ayuda en futuras necesidades nauticas
Thanks for providing all kind of services to help me entering the world of water sports/yachting.
Last but not least you helped me to find local partners that take care of maintenance or small issues coming up from time to time.
We already had plenty of activities on the water like fishing, wake-board-riding or making trips and do really enjoy having this valuable toy
I was looking for a used sailing yacht in good condition from one owner in the size of 40-45 feet. In the internet I found “Baraka”, a Beneteau Oceanis 423 from 2005 in Denia/Spain.
After my initial request regarding some additional information about the boat I got from Paco Maldonado / MarineTeam an extensive description. Motivated by this nice first contact my wife and I travelled to Denia to visit the boat in June 2017, next to other boats in Denia, Almerimar and Malaga. Paco showed us every detail and mentioned also the shortcomings of the boat during a 2-3 hour presentation.
After we made up our mind and negotiated the price I had the opportunity to visit the boat again on the dry dock after cleaning and antifouling painting end of August. The next day the boat was put to water again and Paco and myself did a brief sailing test and an extended check of the whole boat.
After signing the purchase contract Paco stayed in touch with me in the following weeks and asked for my first experience with “Baraka” during a sailing trip to Ibiza and Formentera with my family. Furthermore, MarineTeam helped me with the handling of the Spanish authorities and recommended shipyards and local technicians, since I will update the yacht with additional equipment.
Based on my experience with MarineTeam, I can strongly recommend this broker to every interested party. 5 Stars !
I met Paco Maldonado when I wished to sell my first Spanish cruiser. He found the customer and organized the deal quickly and efficiently. Later I had the fortune to find that he was selling my current boat, and again he helped arrange the deal. I have always found him friendly, efficient and easy to work with, helped my his knowledge of the business and the people involved in the sailing world, both here in the Valencia area and beyond.
Highly recommended: Quite separately from two different enquiries as to who we should place our boat when we arrived in Valencia with Paco and Barbara being recommended to us as the best people to talk to in Valencia. We can only echo “highly recommended” as from the moment we first met them they showed us they were interested in us as much as our boat. They explained to us in great detail what they would do in order to sell our boat. From the video to the minute detail in the marketing; then they asked about us, they got to know us and how we had looked after our boat. They then in turn looked after us supporting and informing us throughout the selling process but gave equal care and attention to all the potential buyers they brought to the boat.
Paco and Barbara are true professionals in their work they do in addition they are caring for the people they met – buyer or seller they are all important to Marine Team Valencia.
After looking at several boats in the UK, I finally found the one that fitted our needs in Spain. I was a bit nervous about going all the way to Spain to buy a boat, but Paco made the whole process very easy and secure. Paco explained the whole process and made sure the correct paper work was completed to de-register the boat before having it shipped back to UK. He even supervised the lifting of the boat out of the water and onto the road transport. We’ve now had the boat on the Thames for a whole year and are very happy with the purchase, thanks Paco !
Paco and I have worked together since 2007, he has always provided an excellent service with that personal touch – which is so important in our maritime industry, best wishes with the new venture!
Recientemente he cambiado de embarcación, y tengo que dar gracias a Paco y Bárbara ya que se han ocupado de todo en ambas operaciones tanto la compra como la venta de una manera ejemplar.
En MARINETEAM no solo he encontrado a unos profesionales de la náutica, sino también a dos AMIGOS con los que seguir disfrutando de esto que tanto nos gusta que es el MAR.
We would like to thank Paco & Barbara (Marine Team) for their services in helping us achieve the purchase of our new Motor Cruiser.
They were always friendly, helpful and understanding to our needs.
We must praise their ability to communicate with us in English at all times.
They were also keen to look after our interests as buyers and not only of the sellers. Always prepared to go that extra mile.
We would recommend using Marine Team to anybody and they would certainly be our first port of call.
We would wish them every success for the future, they deserve it.
