From one yacht show to another this week… today sees the beginning of the Superyacht show in Palma, Mallorca. A brokerage and charter show, there’s several well-known charter boats on display with some old favourites and some new to the charter market in Spain. This is only the second edition of the superyacht show, and it has returned following the success of the Palma Superyacht Brokerage and Charter Show in May 2013. This show will continue to only exhibit yachts of an impressive 24 metres and above.
First up is a new addition to the charter market in Spain, POWDERMONKEY. Our team on the French Riviera were gutted to see her leave her prime position in Antibes last year, having received a Spanish charter license, heading to Palma for the upcoming season. This luxury crewed motor yacht offers unrivalled value for money, accommodating up to 10 guests at a very competitive €49,000 per week high season. She’s a fun family boat with spacious cabins, classic interior, fun splashes of colour throughout and an extensive water sports inventory. POWDERMONKEY has had multiple technical and visual upgrades meaning she’s in pristine condition ready for this summer.
Next up is BENITA BLUE from Evolution Yachts in Australia. She combines the weird and wonderful to create extensive space of a much larger yacht. Her sleek, outlandish and bright exterior colouring is contrasted by the quiet cool of her neutral interior. Whilst the owners of BENITA BLUE are keen to move on before the summer season arrives, we’re confident she’ll be back on the charter market in time for high season in the Mediterranean. Again she’s a perfect family boat with two doubles, two twins and a convertible office for an extra two berths.
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.
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.
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.
M/Y ALCOR is a prestigious 35m luxury motor yacht from Heesen, accommodating up to 12 guests in 6 cabins. She is a yacht fit for a king, with luxurious accommodation and deck spaces throughout. Whether you want to charter this yacht for a week around Mallorca or are looking to host a luxury cocktail or birthday party, look no further than ALCOR! With 6 cabins, we would recommend gathering your family together for an unforgettable holiday.
Her crew are very diverse, bringing together multiple cultures from Peru, Cuba and Europe to create a unique and memorable charter experience. Get ready for some of the best food, drink, scenery and landscapes aboard ALCOR.
S/Y SEA SHUTTLE was born in 1983 and has since successful completed over 50 Atlantic crossings. She is an extremely famous and popular 28m classic Jongert sailing yacht, accommodating up to 7 guests in 3 cabins. She has always been looked after and in 2012, she received a full interior and exterior refit, bringing her in line with the latest and best luxury sailing yachts of today.
This can be illustrated by her stunning tender, which is capable of reaching speeds of 50 knots! Whether you fancy a quick lunch in Ibiza or Formentera, anything is possible on board this sailing yacht. She has a brilliant English captain, who will ensure that every single wish is successful achieved during your boat charter.
