Balearic Islands Yacht Charter Guide

Like to go monohull sailing in the Balaerics? Check out the new range of Dufour yachts available there and in other Mediterranean destinations.
The Balearic islands of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, Formentera and Cabrera lie off the eastern coast of Spain, just 60 miles from Valencia. With up to 300 days of sunshine per year, the islands possess a cosmopolitan ambiance, and Balearic culture has become as varied as the islands themselves. There’s something for everyone from secluded bays and quaint fishing harbors to smart seaside towns and modern marinas.

Start your charter either in the Balaerics or on the coast of mainland Spain, say in Valencia, just a day’s sail away.

To use one of the island bases as your starting and finishing point, tthere are several to choose from. Palma on Mallorca is a popular base, right at the heart of the Balaerics cruising grounds. Keen sailors can easily circumnavigate Mallorca in one week. That gives you time to bathe in the scenic beauty of the northeastern coast of the Balaerics' biggest island, stopping at picturesque coves and idyllic anchorages along your way. On a two-week cruise you can also explore the neighbouring islands of Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera.

Let us present you with the best boats available at the time you want to visit, and help you plan your sailing holiday in the Balearics.

Our Charter Services

As well as all the destinations on offer, the choice of boat charter operators in the Mediterranean Sea is wide and potentially confusing. It is very important that you sail with a reputable company. During 20-plus years in the charter business, we at Sail Connections have developed a network of only the best operators - people who we know can be relied on to take care of our clients. We'll match the right yacht to meet your budget, level of comfort and boat-handling experience.

Our team travels to destinations worldwide to inspect boats for charter, and to get first-hand experience of the cruising grounds we market. We offer local knowledge, sailing itineraries that suit your pace, and onshore connections that ensure everything runs smoothly and you get the most from your holiday. When getting us to help you organise your charter in Spain or anywhere else, you pay no more for our service.

For sailing in the Balaerics, arranging a bareboat charter is quite straightforward for the suitably-able sailor. Alternatively, consider taking aboard a skipper, who will be responsible for your yacht as well as providing your meals. You can even take a cook along too if you wish, for the ultimate holiday. Even experienced sailors often prefer to hire a crew, carefully chosen by us in consultation with our operators. These people not only take care of all the work, they are your local guides too. It's fun to live like the locals for a bit, eating, shopping and being entertained as they do. With the help and local knowledge of your crew, enjoy the very best in holiday experiences that may otherwise be missed.
