Mallorca, an idyllic island paradise lined with white sand beaches and an ideal destination for sailors all year round. The largest of the Balearics is known for its beach resorts and sheltered coves, but if you hire a catamaran, you will also be able to visit some of the hidden secrets that would otherwise be inaccessible. While in Mallorca, be sure to also sample some of the local dishes and take the opportunity to go island hopping while in such close proximity to so many prime sailing destinations.
The price of hiring a catamaran in Mallorca varies greatly depending on a number of different factors. Some things that will affect the price include the number of people, the duration of the trip, the season, the amenities on board and where you would like to rent. In general, catamaran hires in Mallorca can cost anywhere from around £1210 per week.
No, you can hire a catamaran with or without a skipper in Mallorca. However, for boats that are longer than 16.5 feet or which have an engine power of more than 15 horsepower, you will need a licence if you plan on hiring without, so be sure to check out the rules regarding this before you set off on your holiday.
If you have the appropriate licence and want a holiday filled with adventure, hiring a catamaran without a skipper is perfect for you. If you want a more relaxing holiday though, or aren’t in possession of a boating licence, not to worry - you can hire a professional skipper who will guide you to all the best places in Mallorca and take care of all the more complicated parts of your trip.

While most people opt to go sailing in Mallorca during the summer months, we would actually suggest going in the spring. Although the weather is better in the summer, some holidaymakers can find the heat and humidity a little intense, and might actually favour conditions in the spring or early autumn, when the weather is still fantastic, but there are also fewer tourists and better deals on boats.
