On a Ibiza catamaran charter with Borrow a Boat you can explore much of the Balearic Islands within an easy sail. Whatever you want from an Ibiza yacht charter, from its beautiful beaches and excellent food to its vibrant culture, a catamaran charter Ibiza is going to be an unforgettable experience.
An Ibiza yacht charter can mean different things to different people. Cruising between quiet coves and beautiful beaches and enjoying a Balearic Islands family sailing holiday on the one hand or something a lot more energetic, hitting the nightclubs and bars every evening on the other.
Ibiza Town has marinas that can hold over 1000 yachts of up to 110m LOA. You can take a day charter or longer catamaran charter around the island out of Marina Ibiza or another marina to explore the island by charter boat.
Ibiza Town and San Antonio have a worldwide reputation for their nightclubs and fun for the under-30s. On the other hand you will find resorts like Santa Eulalia where you can enjoy the clear water in some peace and quiet.
San Antonio (Sant Antoni) is famed for its sunsets on the west coast of the island. You can enjoy a more energetic time on the busy Cala Bassa or something a little more relaxed in the Quiet Zone area of Cala Tarida. While Cala Bassa is busier, Cala Tarida is good for water sports and you may go out on your paddle board to enjoy the beautiful beach from a different angle. Another beach worth a visit is Cala Comte.
Close to San Antoni on your Ibiza yacht charter you may discover the small islands around Es Vedrà, a rock said to be the third most magnetic place in the world. Said to be the home of Sirens and sea nymphs, the island has a long mythological history.
On the southern tip of the island is another great beach - Las Salina Grande Beach is one of the largest on the island at over a kilometre long, and is very popular too.
Further around Ibiza, on the NE of the island you will discover the family oriented resort of Santa Eulalia. This has the only river estuary on the island and a beautiful beach known locally as Cala Mastella. Unlike the other beaches we have described, Cala Mastella is a quiet, laid back area very like the town nearby.
Elsewhere on your Ibiza boat charter you can enjoy a boat trip to Formentera to the NE of the island. As with Cala Comte this used to be a centre of the salt industry but now offers 24 hour fun in the sun!
Whether your ideal boat holiday is one of 'larging it' or chilling out on your rental boat, the Mediterranean Sea island of Ibiza offers it all. Book your Ibiza boat charter with Borrow a Boat today!
You don't need to worry about being an experienced sailor or even sailing the boat out of Ibiza with Borrow a Boat! An Ibiza crewed catamaran charter (gulet charter) on a motor yacht or sailing catamaran can mean you do as much or as little physically sailing the yacht as you like on your yacht charter holiday.
A skippered yacht charter or will mean that the skipper will be aboard with their own cabin to attend to all your needs. A crewed yacht rental (or gulet charter) will involve one or two crew on the boat trip who will cook, sail and make suggestions as to your best destinations on your sailing itinerary. With their local knowledge, even if you're an experienced sailor you can enjoy a perfect yacht charter holiday.
One of the advantages of a crewed yacht charter sailing vacation is that you can go longer distances from the yacht charter base. Other Balearic islands like Mallorca and Menorca are within reach with a skipper and crew handling the sailing.
As to you? You can just enjoy the breezes and views on your luxury yacht charter, or if you fancy learning a bit about sailing, help the skipper or crew to get the boat from A-B.
An Ibiza crewed yacht charter will cost a little more (typically €150 a day for a skipper and €100 per crew member) and it's the done thing to thank them with a tip at the end of the week.
A bareboat charter holiday will mean that you can take the charter yacht out on your own. Generally for vessels up to 20 metres LOA on a sailing license such as an RYA Day Skipper or ASA 104 Bareboat certificate, you will have total responsibility for the yacht.
You will need to think about your sailing itinerary, victualling, possible secondary ports should a marina be full, as well as issues like weather and mooring fees.
On a bareboat catamaran charter you will be asked to pay for insurance in the form of a security deposit to the charter company on departure or through buying charter insurance before you leave the yacht charter base on your sailing trip.
When searching a geographical area on Borrow A Boat you can filter by the below charter yacht types. There is also the option to further filter your searches by price, the number of guests, cabins or bathrooms, what year the catamaran was launched, the boat length and the boat manufacturer.
Types of Catamarans Available:
Sailing Catamaran: Luxury catamarans are stable and spacious type of sailing boat, with quick sailing performance, and and have been gaining in popularity in recent years. Better for larger groups, they have lots of room for water toys such as a paddle board or even jet ski, and are big enough for a little privacy. A catamaran charter luxury yacht is easy and comfortable for novices not used to heeling and are loved by families due to their extra space when compared to a monohull sailing yacht. Typically far more luxurious than a sailboat, the larger catamarans have en suite toilets and showers in the cabin as well as ample entertaining space in the saloon and on deck.
Motor Catamaran: These motor yacht charter catamarans are relatively new but have also been gaining in popularity as the two hulls keep the boat more stable when compared to a monohull. The wider beam of these motor boat also mean more deck space and as they don’t have sails or a mast, they have a lot more space on deck than a sailing catamaran rental or monohull. For a luxury catamaran charter, consider taking a crewed catamaran charter sailing vacation with an experienced skipper.
On your Ibiza crewed catamaran boat rental or bareboat charter sailing holiday you can explore Ibiza and wider Balearic Islands. Here we suggest a 7 day sailing trip and a 14 day yacht charter holiday on your charter yacht:
7 days - Ibiza and Nearby Islands: Sailing out of Marina Ibiza you first head north to the quiet resort of Santa Eulaliaand as a next port of call, the old fishing port of Portinatx on the north coast. San Miquel will be your next port of call, followed by San Antoni. Spend an afternoon at Cala Comte and watch the sunset, and then the next day visit the island of Es Vedra before spending the next evening in Es Cubells. The island of Formentera will be the next afternoon and evening ashore before returning to the charter base at Ibiza Town.
14 days - Balearic Island hopping: Over two weeks you can explore the wider Balearic Islands on your catamaran charter Ibiza. Set sail north to Palma de Mallorca and then via Port de Soller on the mountainous west coast, head for Port de Pollenca on the north coast. Off to Menorca for your next ports on your boat trip, this time to Cieutdella and then Mahon on the north of the island. SW to the water sports hot spot of Cala Ratjada on Mallorca and then perhaps spend an evening ashore at Cala d’Or on the SE coast of the island. Cala Figuera and the laid back resort of Sa Rapita will be your next sailing destinations, before heading back to the Bay of Palma and into Puerto d’Andratx. Set sail for Ibiza and cruise the NW coast of the island for a couple of days, perhaps landing at San Antoni before visiting Formentera for your final night ashore and then returning the charter boat to base.
If you are on a skippered catamaran charter you do not need a license to sail out of Ibiza, you can just turn up at the marina and go.
You do need a sailing license if you are on a bareboat catamaran charter and in some countries such as Greece a day skipper or ICC may not be enough for boats over 45 feet in length, you will need to check with the charter agent but here are some examples of typical sailing qualifications that will allow you to charter in most countries:
International Certificate of Competence: This is issued on request by your European sailing authority and you should automatically qualify with certain national sailing qualifications.
RYA Qualifications: If you have the following qualifications you will typically be able to take a bareboat charter out of Ibiza (but it is worth checking as per above), these include Day Skipper (sail or motor endorsement), Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster.
American Sailing Association (ASA): The ASA 104 Bareboat certificate is commonly accepted but also check as per above
US Sailing: The International Proficiency Certificate is widely accepted and The Bareboat Cruising Certificate is also accepted in many cases.
The main points to consider are what is your budget, have you got the necessary sailing experience and qualifications to manage the boat if it's not going to have a skipper, whom you are taking sailing, where exactly you wish to go and what will the weather be like on the proposed dates of your trip.
You will typically pay 50% up front on reserving the catamaran hire and the balance on arrival. You will either pay a security deposit with your credit card on departure or can get insurance covering damage in advance. In some cases (such as the recent Covid situation) charter companies may be more flexible but this depends on the individual charter companies themselves.
If you are at sea and in danger, call MAYDAY on VHF Ch16 or ring the coast guard on your phone if you have reception. If you have a mechanical fault and can make it to or are on a mooring you will be able to phone a help line number given by the boat charter company and they can typically send someone from the charter base
You should consider do you have the experience to handle the catamaran before you book and where do you want to go along with what the weather will be like. Bring warm weather and cool weather clothing if it looks like the weather can be cool as well as warm and remember at sea it can be cool in the evenings.
If you want to sail without a skipper then you will need relevant qualifications like RYA Day Skipper/International Certificate of Competence (ICC)/ASA 104 Bareboat certificate or the US Sailing Certificate. If you choose to have a skipper on board your catamaran you won't require licences.
