Looking for a private boat or yacht charter on Mallorca? Look no further…

Thursday, April 14, 2016 Boat Tours by Elina Pedersen

Mallorca is an amazing island to explore by the sea.

I already wrote a post on “Everything you ever wanted to know about Mallorca charter boat tours and coastal points of interest” summarising information on all coastal excursions available on Mallorca.

So this time:

I will talk about private boat rental on the island.

Obviously, having a boat to yourself is slightly different from joining in on an excursion. And of course, there are both advantages and disadvantages to that approach.

Advantages of renting a private sailing boat:

  • You can plan your own journey
  • You can decide on the duration of the trip
  • You can choose points of interest to visit
  • You won’t have to share the deck with anyone else (the sun or shade is all yours!)
  • If you are a big group, it can be the same price or sometimes cheaper than a usual excursion.


As there is always another side of the coin, here are some disadvantages of renting a private charter:

Disadvantages of renting a private sailing boat:

  • If you are a small group, it is definitely more expansive
  • Availability might be an issue during the peak season
  • Sometimes you will have to pay for the fuel

With all of the above said, some occasions truly require a private yacht charter.

If you have a stag or hen party, planning on proposing to your loved one or simply thinking about cruising through the Mediterranean for a couple of days:

A private boat hire is a must!

I spent some time coming up with a private Mallorca sailing companies list so you won’t have to.

Here is my list:

Mallorca Boat Rental Companies

First things first, each boat you will be sailing with should be insured; otherwise I would question the company who rents it out.

Secondly, most of the time the fuel will be included in the price. If it’s not, I will mention it.

Thirdly, some boats that can carry a maximum of 6 people will not require you to have a license and I will also mention them separately.

Finally, when a port has more than one private charter company to offer I will present the information in a form of a comparison table.

Now let’s start:

Same as with the excursions you will have to choose a company based on your location on the island.

So feel free to simply skip to your homeport below.

Cala Figuera and Portopetro

I was only able to find one company in Cala Figuera and Portopetro.

With that being said:

There are quite a few companies available in the surrounding areas of Southeast, including Porto Cristo and Cala D’or.

Nonthtless, Cala Figuera and Portopetro are lucky to have Red Star Tours.

Red Star Tours offers kayak hire, rib boat hire and standard boat hire.

Kayaks are available in Cala Figuera only. But we are here to talk about the boats:

The Portopetro private rib boat costs €200 for the whole day and carries a maximum of 4 people. You can get it for less if you are planning a half-day or a few-hour trip.

The Cala Figuera rib boat costs €275 for 2 hours or €375 for 3 hours and it carries a maximum of 12 people. The boat includes fuel, insurance and a skipper, so you don’t have to do anything but enjoy the trip.

Now, good news for fishermen:

The first real sailing boat available with Red Start Tours in Cala Figuera and Portopetro carries fishing equipment on board. So you can go fishing!

Or:

You can rent it to go to Cabrera (an 8-hour trip for €700 or simply rent it for a full day for €600 or a half day for €350).

Lastly, you can rent a sailing boat with kayaks, food, drinks, snorkelling equipment, 12 people rib boat and 2 crew members for €1500, or go for a cheaper option without kayaks and drinks and with a 4-people rib boat for € 1000 a day.

There are quite a few rental companies located in Port de Soller. I’ve decided not to include them, as all of them require sailing license.

But if you do have a license, some of the companies above do offer a licensed hire.

Porto Cristo & Cala Bona:

Porto Cristo

No matter how hard I searched I’ve only found one private charter worth mentioning in Porto Cristo.

And the winner is…Roda Boats.

Although, Roda Boats is slightly different from the companies listed before they are definitely worth the attention of adventure seekers.

They are one of the companies that rent out boats without license and they have 4 license free boats in Porto Cristo and 3 license free boats in Cala Bona.

The cheapest boat is €70 per 2 hours (+€20 for fuel), €120 for 4 hours (+€30 for fuel) and finally 8 hours cost €200 (+€40 for fuel). The boat can carry a maximum of 6 people and the rest is up to you.

The stronger boat is a bit more expensive and is even suitable for water-skis. It costs €190 for 4 hours (+€60 for fuel) and €280 for 8 hours (+€80 for fuel). Waters skies cost an additional €25 for a day.

Roda Boats also offers license boats with the following specs: one 6 meter boat with 70ps, one 7 meter boat with 200ps and one 8 meter boat with 80ps and a sailing yacht of 7 meter.

It is also possible to rent a jet ski if you are the adventurous type. 

I spoke with Roel Veenman (one of the owners) and he explained that Road Boat’s main focus is in safety and comfort:

“We focus on comfort and safety, next to the usual safety equipment our boats are equipped with GPS trackers, all have a spare fuel tank, have special railing for easy entrance and the anti-slip teak deck. Our 8 meter boat (type Balt 818) is suited specifically to families.”

Now:

It’s a great opportunity to be a captain for a day! So what else do you need?

Our next port of call is Port d’Andratx.

Port d’Andratx:

There are two companies available in Port d’Andratx.

Company Name Boat Type Maximum number of people Inclusions Price
Katamaran Club Mallorca Voyage 44 catamaran Minimum 2 people maximum 12 people. This sailing trip truly includes everything: food, drinks, snacks, snorkelling equipment and even towels. The prices are based on the amount of people attending.

  • Full Day: from €1’240 to €2’440
  • Half Day: from €825 to €1’625
  • Sunset: from €480 to €880.
Sin Rumbo Mallorca Offers 5 different boats 12 Would only be suitable for Spanish users, as they do not provide any English details

Calonia de Sant Jordi:

Calonia de Sant Jordi has many shared boat services to offer. However, in terms of private charters I recommend you go with Caragol Charter.

The price is reasonable and they will gladly take you on a short 2-hour tour, half-day tour, full day tour or even to the Cabrera National Park which will cover Es Port, Sa Platgeta, Es Burrí, Cova Blava.

The Caragol Charter prices are as follows:

  • Short Tour (2 hours): €162
  • Half Day (4 hours): €260 + Fuel
  • Full Day (7 hours): €360 + Fuel
  • Tour Cabrera (7 hours): €420 + Fuel

Can Pastilla:

PX Boats offers all usual types of trips on Mallorca including half day, full day and sunset charters.

The half day costs €500, the full day costs €850 and the sunset tour costs €450.

The sailing boat is 14 meters long and can host a maximum of 10 people on board.

PX boat skipper will gladly share his secrets with you and perhaps will even allow you to be the captain yourself for a little bit.

This is it for my list of companies that provide a private sailing charter services in Mallorca based on location.

You might be wondering:

What if we are a bigger group or want to host an event as big as a wedding.

Well, if you are looking for one, look no more!

Segel Event will help you with bigger parties. The biggest boat they offer can host up to 200 people.

Now that’s a lot!

Don’t worry; they have boats of all sizes and shapes and almost in every port on Mallorca. No matter if you are looking for a private yacht or a party catamaran. Just make sure you book in advance.

Hope this guide will help you find the private boat or yacht you are looking for.

So now all you have to do is sail your day away!

If you provide private charters on Mallorca and I didn’t mention you, please contact me straight away and I will review your offer.

My next post will be on the best cycling and mountain biking Mallorca, so stay tuned!
