Is there a better way to discover an island than on a yacht? We have picked our favourite yachts in Mallorca, so that you just need to do is pick one, book it and show up at the marina. Ahoy!
Sail around Mallorca's coastline and feel the sea breeze on your face while enjoying a chilled drink, take a refreshing dip in the Mediterranean, explore the island's crystalline waters with a canoe or snorkelling, and, if adrenaline is more your thing, practise waterskiing under the sun. Here is our list of the top 5 yachts charters in Mallorca.
The vintage style sailing yacht
Tudor Dawn is a beautiful 15-metre Brigantine Schooner built in 1980 with a classic style. Its wooden deck and two masts, with squaresails and topsails, create a vintage silhouette bringing you back to another era. British couple Simon and Susie command the ship, which you can book for shared or private tours from just a few hours to watch the sunset and enjoy some tapas and drinks, to a full day. The yacht comes with stand-up paddle boards, a floating air bed and snorkelling and fishing gear. Budding sailors can even take a lesson with captain Simon!
The cutting edge motor boat
Sakura is a unique 16-metre Riva Vitale motor boat made in Italy. Its futuristic lines and shiny silver hull mean that you will not go unnoticed while cruising through the Mediterranean. The elegance and style of its exterior seep into its interior, with 3 spacious cabins and a sleek lounge equipped with TV, DVD and HIFI. But the best part of this boat is its top-of-the-class lounge deck area with plenty of sunbathing space. Its powerful motor, with a maximum speed of 36 knots, is also perfect for waterskiing and wakeboarding, just great for a day charter or a week around the Balearics.
The luxury super yacht
Fully revamped in 2007, Vogue is a sharply designed 25-metre luxury yacht fitted with the finest materials and furnishings. Outside, there is an ample aft deck with swimming platform, while the flybridge is perfect for sunlounging, equipped with a zoned sound system and a bar with fridge and icemaker so you do not have to move when preparing your next cocktail. Inside, there is a large lounge with multimedia system, as well as 8 en-suite cabins -the master bedroom even has a marble bathroom with jacuzzi! But it does not stop there, this super yacht comes with a jet tender, a seabob to explore under the water, a jet ski, donut and fishing and snorkelling equipment... What more do you need for the ultimate luxury experience?
The love boat
For a romantic escapade, there is nothing like a cosy sailing yacht with a welcoming deck where you can cuddle up while sipping a glass of wine. Mezzo Magic offer just that. Their 9-metre sailing yacht has a stereo system to play your favourite ballads and a fridge full of complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. You can also book a meal with salads, cold meats and cheeses or a BBQ. However, if you want a more special treat, they can take you to Sa Foradada, an exclusive restaurant only accessible by boat perfect for a lazy lunch with unbeatable views. Or choose their sunset sail and enjoy a swim while the water and the mountains slowly turn pink, a truly unforgettable experience.
