Catamaran Charter Balearics

Whether aboard a large luxury yacht charter with crew looking after your every need, or a bareboat charter sailing yacht, a catamaran charter Balearic Islands will allow you to enjoy the best of the Spanish Balearic Islands.

Whether using the catamaran charter yacht as an after party boat in the marina, or using it to cruise the beautiful coastline of the Balearic Island chain, a Balearic Islands catamaran charter is the perfect platform.

Among the more relaxed resorts are:

  • Puerto Soller on the west coast of Mallorca is an ideal destination on a Mallorca yacht charter. With the mountainous background, you will soon see why Rome never managed to conquer it - and neither have the tourist hordes.
  • Puerto Pollenca on the NW corner is another relaxed, family oriented place to visit on a yacht charter Mallorca.
  • Santa Eulalia on the hippy/party island of Ibiza is another destination to enjoy.
  • Es Trenc on Mallorca is another idyllic, quiet spot to get away from it all. Though away from the main roads it is getting a good reputation for being a fashionable hideaway
  • Porto Colom and Cala Figuera on the Mallorca east coast are ideal yacht charter Mallorca destinations with excellent ports and sandy beaches.

As well as the more refined places to relax and enjoy the gentle pace, there are a few places the younger and more energetic crowd should visit. Among the world renowned party spots are:

  • Ibiza Town and San Antonio on Ibiza are just bywords for hedonism, though with their sandy beaches they are a lot quieter during the daytime.
  • The island of Formentera can be gentle in the day but lights up at night.
  • With its top end water sport and surfing, Cala Ratjada on the NE corner of Mallorca is one of those destinations that while not plastic fun, draws a certain younger crowd away from sun, sea and sangria!
  • Palma de Mallorca is the capital and home of many a yacht charter Balearics charter base. Palma de Mallorca is best described as a mini Barcelona and up there among the most vibrant and fun Western Mediterranean cities.
  • Close to Palma are the high end resort towns of Port Adriano and Puerto Andratx, where you will find luxury yacht charter yachts moored at the marinas.

With the top end, reliably good sailing to be had with the trade winds, beautiful beaches and different shades of fun to be had ashore, the Balearic Island group is one of the best locations . With your catamaran as a base, and perhaps crew to help you on your week or two of fun afloat, you're not going to find many better places in the world.

Catamaran Yacht Charter Balearic Island

Aluxury yacht charter is one of the best ways to enjoy a Balearic Island yacht charter vacation. With an often large vessel just for you and your fellow charter guests' use, the skipper and crew will look after your every need afloat. They will look after the tender as you venture ashore on islands like La Mola and La Savina, and perhaps make suggestions as to the best spots to enjoy a first class meal or activity of your choice. Life aboard is relaxed too, with the captain and crew ensuring you have the best possible time afloat on your catamaran yacht charter.

Balearic Island Catamaran Charter Types


Though you will often have to have a sailing license for a larger vessel, a bareboat charter will give you complete freedom and privacy to do what you want. Unlike a monohull sailing yacht, a catamaran will often come with en suite heads in all the staterooms, an AC generator and all the comforts of home as you captain your own ship.


A skippered catamaran charter can range from a 46ft+ catamaran. The skipper aboard will look after the sailing and make suggestions as to your next destinations, with you playing as much or as little a role in getting from A-B as you want. It is customary to pay a tip at the end of the trip, on top of the €100-€150 a day fee for the skipper you pay as well as the basic charter fee.


A crewed cabin charter could mean a 60ft yacht with skipper and crew, but could also mean a superyacht or crewed charter with a team of people looking after your every need. As well as sailing the vessel between the islands, they will cook, look after the housekeeping and water toys, and provide you with the service you expect at the top end of yacht charter holiday experiences.

Catamaran Types in Spanish Balearic Islands

Sailing Catamaran

Ranging from a 40ft yacht to much, much larger, this will be enjoyable to sail (particularly with the wind aft of the beam) and unlike a monohull sailing yacht will often have en suite heads in all the staterooms. You will have plenty of entertainment space aboard and even the smaller vessels will have room for water toys such as paddleboards and kite surfing gear or even diving gear and jet skis. If the windage of the catamaran sailing boat gets too much, powerful twin engines will be able to get you upwind to your next destination too!

Motor Catamaran

Ranging from 46ft to over 100ft LOA, you can charter a luxury motor yachtcatamaran with crew or bareboat. Thanks to the wider beam they are more stable than a monohull motor yacht (no one going green at sea unless too much drink was involved!) and much faster. This could allow for longer legs, perhaps between the party centres of Ibiza Town and Mahon on Menorca.

What can you do on a Catamaran charter in the Balearic Islands?

There are three broad types of sailing holiday to be had in the Balearic Island chain - family, outdoor or party.

Partying can mean stays in fashionable spots like Puerto Andratx and Palma de Mallorca, or it can mean something a little crazier in Ibiza Town, San Antonio or on Formentera.

Family holidays are the bread and butter of the Balearic Island economy. You can relax in great places like Cala Figuera, Puerto Soller or even Mahon and Santa Eulalia on your catamaran charter.

Active holidays are increasingly popular here too. Snorkeling and diving are great in several locations, but so is walking and mountain biking. Cala Ratjada is one of the water sport capitals of the Western Mediterranean too.

What does an average day on a Balearic Island Yacht charter look like?

A catamaran charter boat charter in the Balearics Islands can mean a variety of things to different people. You may just leave it at the dock in a party spot to entertain before and after the clubs. If you're that way inclined you may wish to set sail for another hot spot for fun in different locations.

For the family or those who can't quite handle seeing the sunrise without a good night's sleep before, you can sail between hidden coves and quiet sandy beaches, while visiting fishing villages and quieter resorts.

You will want to sail for several hours a day - with the near perfect sailing conditions this is unmissable. Watching the marine life from the windward rail on a beam reach as the catamaran bounds across the sea will be an unforgettable experience.

As such your typical day could be a mix of things, from an early start to blast off to the next island to waking up at lunchtime feeling a little green around the gills and thanking your crew for getting you back aboard. The choice is down to you.

Frequently asked questions

What should I consider when hiring a Catamaran?

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.

Do you have to pay a deposit when hiring a Catamaran in Balearics?

You will typically pay 50% up front on booking 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.

What happens if my Catamaran breaks down?

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

What should I think of before I hire a Catamaran in Balearics?

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.

What Qualifications Do I need to hire a Catamaran?

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.
