Where We’re Going This Summer

Winter is comfortably behind us, and summer has finally settled in, bringing warmer temperatures and longer days. Here at Boatbookings, we couldn’t be more excited about our upcoming vacations and the boats we’ll be taking to explore undiscovered islands and towns that await! We can plan your charter vacation too; just get in touch and email charter@boatbookings.com today!

Name: Ben, Charter Broker
Destination: Sardinia

The combination of the breath-taking Tavolara, chic Porto Cervo, the beautiful Maddalena and iconic Bonifacio are unbeatable. Sardinia is discreet and exclusive, the perfect yacht charter destination. I’d combine the quiet anchorages around Porto Pollo with beautiful Port towns like Porto Rotondo and Bonifacio. I’d go for traditional Italian coffee and breakfast at the Cafe du Port (Porto Cervo), then cruise into the Maddalena, swim at Caprera (Cala Coticcio), seafood lunch at La Scogliera (Isola Maddalena north, close to Cala Spalmatore) and then back to Phi Beach Club (Porto Cervo) for sunset. I would stay there, but you could also then go for dinner at Just Cavalli Porto Cervo and then onto Billionaire Club!

Chosen Yacht: PORTHOS SANS ABRI – with a yacht owner that has picked the best crew from his fleet of yachts, you are in excellent hands with Captain Carlo. He knows the area inside out, so whether you’re looking to relax, water sports or party, he will take you to the best spots. Contact: ben@boatbookings.com 

 

Name: CordeliaCharter Broker
Destination: Ibiza and Palma

The craziness of Ibiza is a lot of fun and there is an abundance of great beach clubs – Blue Marlin, Juan y Andrea, Lio for the night, then head over to Formentera for a change of scenery. I would be travelling with my family, so would want to visit Mallorca for a quieter time in beautiful bays and the national park Dragonera. The stunning natural beauty of this area is breathtaking and spots are best accessed on a boat, with secluded bays offering us some downtime from the buzzing vibes of Ibiza!

Chosen Yacht: QUASAR – she has the best crew who have been together since last summer; their deckhand loves the water toys, there’s a fabulous chef that makes the best fresh tuna tacos and Captain Ian knows all the more remote spots in Ibiza, not just the obvious places. The yacht is in great condition and has lots of exterior space to kick back and relax as you soak up the sun. Contact: cordy@boatbookings.com

 

Name: EveProduct Manager
Destination: Greece

Having spent just a short weekend in Greece last month, I am super keen to go back again. Greek people are all so friendly and welcoming, the food is amazing – particularly the baklava and souvlaki – and the weather is always hot hot hot! In particular, I want to go sightseeing in Athens and visit some of the islands – some more rural like Milos, and some more for partying like Mykonos, as Greece is so versatile!

Chosen Yacht: BARENTS SEA – Barent’s sea has had a full refit and is so modern, gorgeous and has the most amazing stewardess and chef, who will go above and beyond to ensure an exceptional charter. Her interior is stunning, with a true feel of a luxury floating hotel at your own disposal! Contact: eve@boatbookings.com

 

Name: Eleanor, Sales and Marketing Executive
Destination: French Riviera

Having moved to the Cannes office for the summer season, I’ve adored being in the South of France – it’s perfect for relaxing on the beach and the French Riviera has all the beach clubs, bars and incredible restaurants you could ask for, so no need to go elsewhere! I would do a Day Charter from Cannes to St Tropez or Monaco during my time off, as I think exploring the coast by yacht is unrivalled. I’d spend the day cruising with the music going and drinks flowing with friends, before having lunch at one of the glamorous Beach Clubs; then swim and use the water toys on board before returning back to Cannes for an evening out at Baôli, our favourite club.

Chosen Yacht: REHAB – she is ideal for cruising along the hotspots of the French Riviera and has plenty of deck space for tanning and chilling with friends. Inside there’s a great seating area, too, for sipping champagne whilst on the water!

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!

3 Sensational Spanish Sunseekers for Summer 2014

Parties, beaches, turquoise seas and golden beaches – the Balearic Islands have them all! The infamous nightlife in Mallorca and Ibiza attracts millions of tourists every summer, with the world’s biggest DJs flying in to satisfy the huge crowds flocking to this hedonist paradise. Menorca offers a sharp contrast with quaint coastal towns, historical sites and a wonderfully relaxing café culture.

Whichever island takes your fancy, the best way to see them is undoubtedly by boat! Sunseekers are designed with style and performance in mind, meaning you’ll fit right in among the VIP section of the Balearics’ hottest ports. Here’s our top 3 for Summer 2014…

ALVIUM, Sunseeker Predator 841. ALVIUM is the perfect boat for the charterer who wants to combine speed and space. She has all the amenities of a much larger yacht and an extensive array of toys combined with an impressive cruising speed of 27 knots, meaning you have the Balearics at your disposal in a single cruise. Her sport flybridge means you can feel the speed first hand with a great vantage point for checking out the hotspots. Available from €41,000 per week plus VAT and expenses she’s sure to be a popular choice next year!

GEORGIA, Sunseeker Predator 822. Sunseeker Predator 82 GEORGIA is a sexy monochrome design boat with a super modern interior that matches her eye-catching exterior. Her array of outside space and jet ski mean she’s a popular day charter boat starting from €6,500. Once again, her cruising speed of 32 knots means you can see the Balearics and the Costa Brava at your leisure. Her speed combined with her beautiful styling allow you to look the part in Ibiza Port as you prepare to party at Pacha!

JAX3. JAX OF IBIZA is the ultimate party boat. She’s clean, fresh and white on the outside contrasted by a mysterious dark American Walnut interior. This summer JAX has proved the most popular for the lively charterer wanting to experience Ibiza’s nightlife, see the breathtaking National Parks and enjoy lunches at Formentera’s golden beaches.
