Even though the Summer season is winding down in the Mediterranean, it is never to early to start thinking about your next summer sailing holiday. France, with ports like Cannes and Monaco do seem to grab the limelight when it comes to the charter market due to the glitz and glam.
However, neighboring Spain has it all – relaxation combined with the luxury of simplicity. Visit Barcelona, a wonderful city in southern Spain that rises from the beautiful coast of the Mediterranean with beautiful beaches and very unique architecture. Barcelona has an endless supply of art — experience the works of Gaudi, Picasso, and Dali who have all contributed to the architecture and style of this metropolis. South from here lies Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol, to the North is the Costa Brava bordering France.
Travel in a luxury yacht towards the Balearic Islands which lie 100 km offshore. Sunshine, deep blue water, rocky peaks and golden beaches characterize Mallorca, Ibiza and Menorca – paradise found! A popular vacation spot for Europeans for generations, this area combines vibrant cities with late night hot spots and elegant restaurants (dinner is never served before 10PM), and you are still close to beaches & quiet coves that can be reached only from the sea. Visitors from around the world love adapting to the local custom of taking life on moment at a time – not rushing at a frantic pace missing out on the beauty of sun, sea and land.
At the many ports, you can enjoy the legendary Paella or any magnificent Spanish food and wines like nowhere else in the world; you can listen to Flamenco music or maybe slip into Ibiza. This little island have become world-famous for their nightlife. It is well known for its summer club parties which attract large numbers of of European tourists.
One boat that was chartering in the Balearics this Summer was the stunning luxury yacht Sunreef 70 ABUELO. She has an attention grabbing red hull and the interior is designed with cool greys and pops of red for a sleek modern look. Everything is done with luxury in mind from the state of the art galley to the the linens in the staterooms.
Abuelo will be showing this December in the Antigua Yacht Show and available for the Caribbean winter season for charter.
