Spain’s Balearic Islands are one of the classic Mediterranean yacht charter destinations. Thanks to a perfect climate, gourmet cuisine, world-renowned nightlife and an array of secluded inlets, which are only accessible by water, this archipelago off the Iberian Peninsula has a loyal following with yacht charter clients, who would not consider any other destination for their summer vacation.
Together, the islands of Mallorca, Menorca, Formentera and Ibiza offer something to suit everybody. Families can relax and enjoy the beaches, fine dining and many water activities, while groups of friends descend on the island chain – Ibiza in particular – for some of the best nightlife in the world. Charter brokers are already reporting strong demand for yachts in the Balearics for the 2016 Mediterranean season.
As such, the unveiling of the newest addition to Y.CO’s extensive luxury yacht charter fleet, the 36.5-metre M/Y ASCARI from Palmer Johnson, will cause quite a stir in the charter world.
Palmer Johnson offers the epitome of sleek design and sporty performance in ASCARI, which is based in Ibiza year round and is the perfect yacht for those charter guests looking to immerse themselves in Balearic Island life.
Let yourself be guided by M/Y ASCARI’s Balearic-born captain to create a truly unforgettable charter experience that encompasses the best the islands have to offer. With a top speed of 30 knots (and a cruising speed of 22 knots), a charter itinerary can easily incorporate shopping at Formentera’s artisanal markets by day and waterfront dining in Palma de Mallorca by night. Although, the yacht offers such an extensive array of special features that you may never want to step ashore!
For the occasions that you find yourself along one of the archipelago’s stunning coastlines, such as Menorca’s Cala Blanca, the yacht offers a full range of tenders and toys to enjoy in the turquoise waters, including a Williams jet RIB tender, a 3-seater Seadoo, stand-up jetski, and diving gear, including Brownie’s 3rd lung and Seabobs. There is also the option of an accompanying chase boat for even more action and adventure between the islands.
To enjoy your time spent resting and admiring the spectacular backdrop, the yacht boasts 3 sunpads and a fully trained on-board yoga-master.
Furthermore, in true Balearic style, M/Y ASCARI also offers a specialist on-board barman, along with full DJ decks, lasers, a disco ball and a state of the art sound system to rival some of the best venues on the islands.
M/Y ASCARI really is a charter superyacht suited to both families and groups of friends.
Having only recently undergone a comprehensive refit in 2015, M/Y ASCARI is ready to welcome guests in the upcoming Mediterranean season in style. She can accommodate 8/10 guests in 4 cabins and provides spacious and stylish interiors, in addition to the aft deck, which is ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining.
