Top Yachts at the 2013 Palma Yacht Show

Boatbookings.com at the 2013 Palma de Mallorca Yacht Show

Last week, multiple members from our team went to the prestigious Palma de Mallorca Yacht Show. The show is located at the foot of the stunning cathedral and invited brokers to see a host of yachts, ranging from luxury sailing to super yachts. Chartering a luxury yacht in the Balearic Islands provides endless opportunities to snorkel and swim with dolphins, as well as great flexibility. You can wake up in Palma and be in Ibiza or Formentera in just a few hours! Below, you will find the favourite yachts of Nieves Morales, charter manager and Ben Sutton, charter broker from this years show.

The Best Yacht of the Show: TIGER LILY OF LONDON – Pershing 90 – 3 Cabins – Ibiza – Formentera – Palma de Mallorca

Crewed-Yacht-TIGER-LILY-OF-LONDON

TIGER LILY OF LONDON is a stunning Pershing luxury motor yacht, accommodating up to 6 guests in 3 sumptuous cabins. She can take up to 8 guests overnight with her cinema room converting into an extra bed. The quality of the fixtures and fittings on this yacht are second to none, with no expense spared on the maintenance and upkeep. You would think she has just come out of the factory! Her decks are simply superb, with a sunbathing area on the bow, dining area to the aft, as well as a private area on her Flybridge. The deciding factor that made this our favourite luxury charter yacht on show was the crew.

Beautiful decks on board TIGER LILY

A charter boat can be in great condition and offer the latest toys, but it is the crew who will leave their lasting impression on your experience and memories.  Hanns had everything and more that you would look for in a captain. He is extremely experienced, possessing thorough knowledge of the Mediterranean, from Turkey to Spain. Not only was Hanns extremely professional, but he was also charismatic and had a way about him, which ensured that his clients automatically felt at home on board. If you fancy chartering a luxury yacht in Ibiza for a week this summer, look no further than TIGER LILY.

The Latest Water Toy for your Luxury Yacht Charter!

Water toys are an essential part to a Luxury Yacht Charter in the 21st Century. Ranging from tubes to motorised See-Doo’s and Wave Runners, water toys cater for the whole family like never before. One of the latest and most exciting that we have come across so far this year is the ‘Subwing’, which aims to redefine underwater fun by enabling the user to perform a host of thrilling acrobatics, while being in complete control of movement. The Subwing can be towed safely behind a boat up to speeds of 4 knots and is easily dismantled to a compact state, which is perfect for transportation and storage.

You may automatically associate water toys with crewed motor yachts but you must remember that most yachts, including Bareboat Monohulls and Catamarans will have a tender. One of our favourite Luxury Crewed Caribbean yachts is ICARUS, a Jongert 27m monohull, accommodating up to 6 guests in 3 stunning cabins.She has an extensive range of water toys, including water skis, wakeboards and tubes to keep the whole family entertained. She has a dynamic young crew with a can-do attitude, who will attend to your every need to ensure maximum enjoyment on board. She is available for charter from the Caribbean in the Winter and the West Med in Summer.
