Yacht Charters in Ibiza
Ibiza Yacht Charter
Essential Ibiza Charter Information
Even before the beginning of Covid, Ibiza was on a sharp increase as the ultra-luxury yacht charter destination of the Mediterranean. As the South of France and Monaco become increasingly hostile towards luxury yacht charters (new Monaco government regulations starting in 2023 introduce strict KYC protocol, on top of above-standard VAT), Spain remains friendly and hungry for more high value clients.
The Balearic government is strongly pushing for high end, luxury tourism – at the expense of the huge all inclusive resorts introduced by Franco in the 60’s. Note that Balearic Islands are an autonomous area not on the same page with Madrid about where should the tourism taxes stay/leave. This issue is complicated by the fact that most marinas in Ibiza/Mallorca are owned by people with historical ties to the Spanish royal family, as Spain is still a kingdom.
Ibiza Charter – What You Need To Know Now
- don’t forget – the Ibiza clubs take turns on who’s hosting “THE” party, don’t plan without consulting someone on the ground. Going to Pacha or Amnesia on a wrong night can just kill your day.
- note that the Spanish prefer cooperation with local brokers, pick a broker in the Baleares, such as DMA Yachting.
- Beaches – Cala Salada, Cala Conta and Ses Salines are nice – what you really want is a private cove you can play music in the evening without other boats doing the same thing (after you turn it off). This is important, Spanish parties go until 9am, which is very well documented in this video by Sak Noel
- Scenery – while exploring hedonism to the fullest, take a moment to contemplate as well. Surprisingly, Ibiza IS a location where you can experience life changing sunsets. Please don’t be so lame to propose in Cafe del Mar, you’ll probably be brought a bottle of Dom Perignon 5 seconds after the table next to you did that, true story. Do so on a private yacht, with a private sunset.
