Yacht Extended Services - Destination Panama
Introducing Panama, an alternative cruising ground to the Med and other far away places for Luxury Yachts.
Most Panamanians believe the word PANAMA derived from an old indian word that meant "abundance of fish, trees and butterflies". The Kuna Indian Tribe in Panama believe the word originated from the word 'bannaba' which means "distant" or "far away" but Panama's close proximatey to South Florida rules that out in a great destination for luxury yachts. In fact, the distance between South Florida and Panama is equal distance to that of South Florida and Dallas, Texas and less than 2 1/2 hours by air when its time to join up with your yacht again.
Either the Caribbean or Pacific coasts of Panama offer an abundance of destinations to explore from the water.
From the Caribbean Sea to the Gulf of Panama on the Pacific Coast there are numerous locations to drop anchor and see the beauty of the country.
YES Yacht Extended Services can also arrange Yacht Repairs, Yacht Provisioning, Security and guidance in exploring the areas of interest with their strategic partners in country.

Located in the Gulf of Chiriquí, Coiba National Park is a marine reserve off Panama's Pacific Coast and is comprised of a group of 38 islands.
Because Isla Coiba served Panama as a penal colony, access to the island was very restricted. Almost by accident, 80% of the islands' natural resources have therefore survived untouched and flourished through limited human contact.

The Panama Canal stands as one of the world’s greatest feats of engineering.
The Canal is 48 miles long, was 17 years in the making and had enough rock and rubble dug from the isthmus of Central America to circle the earth four times. But as awe-inspiring as the "big ditch" is, it's still only a tiny sliver of what Panama has to offer.
