If you want to rent a private yacht in Palma de Mallorca but you don’t have a licence to sail, it isn’t a problem! At Océans Evasion we have a large number of vessels in our Mallorca fleet which include a skipper on board or allow one to be added at an extra cost. It’s true that skippered vessels tend to be more expensive than bareboats, but the extra cost is well worth it to have a licenced professional handle everything out on the water for you. Your skipper will sail, dock and anchor the vessel so you don’t have to worry about anything but having the time of your life. If you want to learn a bit about sailing, they are also happy to show you a bit about it, and they might even let you take the helm! But perhaps the best part about having a skipper on board your yacht rental in Palma is the fact that they are usually locals, and they can take you to see the best sights on the island.
For a worry-free sailing holiday where you can cross everything off of your Palma itinerary, choose a skippered vessel!
With so many options, it can be hard to know which one to choose! When choosing the right boat for your yacht rental in Palma de Mallorca, you have to think about the sort of holiday you’re looking to have. If you want a short sailing trip we’d recommend a daily charter such as a motorboat or RIB. If you want to spend a week or more out on the water we’d recommend a more spacious and comfortable vessel, such as a catamaran or a yacht, which will have other amenities on board to suit your needs. If you’re an avid sailor you might prefer a more classic vessel such as a sailboat however, be advised that these vessels tend to sway a lot on the water and might not be suitable for people with seasickness. Whatever sort of vessel you’re searching for, you’re sure to find the perfect one for an unforgettable sailing trip at Océans Evasion!
