Why not take a break from Ibiza’s vibrant party scene this summer and explore the island’s collection of more tranquil restaurants and beach clubs? There is a multitude of venues that provide a relaxing atmosphere, breathtaking views and some simply fantastic gastronomic delights – perfect to visit whilst on a luxury yacht charter.
Finally! The yachting industry has long been awaiting the new marina to be opened in Port Ibiza Town, and it has now officially opened for business. This marina is set to have a huge impact on both Ibiza’s yachting market as well as the Western Mediterranean yachting industry as a whole.
With the Spanish charter licensing rules being stricter than elsewhere in the Med, there are fewer yachts available in the sought after Balearics, but that is not to say they are any less impressive than the larger selection elsewhere in the Med. Boatbookings has recently had the pleasure of having lunch on board the extraordinary TAKARA, a Sanlorenzo 38m launched in 2016.
We recently had the pleasure of visiting the wonderful motor yacht QUASAR, a Peri Navi 28m, based in Ibiza with a berth just outside the infamous Lio! The yacht looks in stunning condition and has a wonderful crew led by Captain Ian Hawkins. The crew are super keen on water sports and can’t wait to welcome their charter guests on board to show them the hot spots between Ibiza and Mallorca!
Chartering yachts is a true luxury due to the privacy, exclusivity and impeccable service received. There is a myriad of yachts available for charter, each suiting different needs such as party, family or watersports preferences! Celebrities adore chartering yachts as a way of escaping to fantastic locations with their friends to get some peace and quiet! We’ve spotted just some of the people you may recognise hanging out in yachting hotspots…
BYOB is known to some as ‘bring your own bottle’ or, to others, ‘be your own boss’. A day skipper qualification enables you to become your own boss on the ocean! A bareboat charter provides an epic experience brimming with freedom, excitement and sense of achievement! Create your own itineraries, pick your own anchorages and add some spontaneity to your trip. What’s stopping you taking the helm? Many people believe they do not possess the skills or competence to skipper a boat. By completing the day skipper course you will gain the relevant knowledge and consolidate your skills. The course does not require vast experience, just enthusiasm to learn and therefore gain experience and your qualification which allows you to pursue your love of sailing.
Palma de Mallorca is one of the most underrated sailing destinations, it is the yachting hub of Spain! Many crew on the yachts say that Palma is easily one of their favourite destinations, as it offers everything you could dream of for a holiday. Go sailing in Mallorca and you will find history, culture, buzzing nightlife and idyllic beaches, alongside delicious gastronomy and water sports! Continue reading
The continuing star of the Mediterranean has got to be the island of Mallorca. With sunshine from April to October, glistening turquoise waters, over 200 miles of stunning coastline and hundreds of beaches and coves only accessible by sea, it is no wonder that people flock to the island year after year. There is no better way to discover the beauty of Mallorca than by sea aboard a stunning classic yacht.
The mid-summer parties in Ibiza are in full swing and it would seem that anyone who is anyone has upped sticks and set up camp in the Balearic Islands. Word has clearly got out that the best way to enjoy this slice of heaven off the coast of Spain is on a yacht. Made in Chelsea’s Millie Mackintosh has been spotted on the aft deck sunbathing topless and Neymar has decided that the best way to recover from a broken back is to kick back on the stunning PETARDO C.
There’s something for all you Justin Bieber fans as well. Considering Orlando Bloom’s popularity rating’s are now sky high having punched the Canadian singer, it would appear there aren’t many of you, but alas, it seems like there are still a couple of people willing to put up with him. He’s been seen off the coast of Formentera, trying out the latest and most exciting water toy, the flyboard while aboard ECSTASEA, the 86m feadship, designed and formerly owned by Russian oligarch, Roman Abramovich.
Bieber is about as good on the flyboard as he is in a boxing match, however the same cannot be said of his guest, Fast and Furious star Michelle Rodriguez who, when not cosied up next to her latest fling, Zac Efron, proves to be a comparative pro on the jet powered water toy.
Rather than sitting at home and seething with jealousy, why not get out there and join them? JAZZ OF MONACO is a fantastic yacht for treating your friends and family. The 30m Benetti has an astonishing amount of outside space across 3 decks.
Dine al fresco on the bridge deck before moving up to the fly deck to soak up some sun and then relax with a cocktail on the aft deck as the sun goes down. A week spent enjoying perfect days like this can be your’s for the excellent price of 53,000€!
Above deck you are spoilt for choice. Each deck, forward and aft, is achingly cool, spacious and comfortable and there are few better ways to spend an afternoon that soaking in a jacuzzi, watching the world go by.
The interior has been styled meticulously, furnished beautifully and finished with no expense spared. In all, BLUSH is amongst the most desirable yachts on the charter market.
