May 15, 2017

Written by Maria Korotaeva

The month of May is a very exciting time, as it is the opening of the yacht charter season in the Mediterranean. It is also a very busy time of the year for our charter specialists at CharterWorld, as luxury superyachts are booking up very fast and invitations to attend familiarisation trips, also known as Fam-trips, are never turned down. This year our charter broker Trina Howes had an opportunity to cruise aboard 43.60m Benetti charter yacht Blue Vision. Incredible charter experience, additional knowledge of the cruising destination, first-class service onboard visiting the best place in the Balearic Islands; below are the highlights of Trina’s trip.

Trina mentioned: “The menu was varied and I feel we got a really good preview of what Chef John can do, which seems to be everything. Gayle is a vegetarian, and she was also super impressed, and I thought her meals looks really yum.”

The upper deck hosts a large lounge with a dining table, a bar to sip on some aperitifs, and a seating area. Blue Vision’s ample deck space includes lovely areas for sunbathing and leisure. Blue Vision has an extensive selection of water toys, including Seabobs, wave runners, water skis, a banana and fishing equipment.

“The crew on board are literally perfect. I could not fault them on a single thing. The service was impeccable with them being at least three steps ahead of us at all times. They were calm, fun, super professional, very good looking, perceptive and hardworking. The chef was outstanding, and I loved all I ate.” – says Trina.

 

THE FAM-TRIP ITINERARY

Our broker Trina Howes embarked on Blue Vison in Barcelona, where Chef John prepared fantastic dinner to welcome guests. Barcelona is an excellent place to start a luxury yacht charter vacation, as the vibrant city has so much to offer. A tour around Barcelona is an incredible experience, especially when you include Park Guell, Sagrada Familia, Cathedral de Barcelona, Montjuic and Casa Ballo in your itinerary. You can admire the awe-inspiring views of Catalonia from the top floor of the W Hotel – one of the most luxurious hotels in Barceloneta.

From Barcelona, Blue Vision cruised to the northern part of Ibiza. This part of the island is full of secluded beaches filled with serenity and peacefulness. Ibiza is an extraordinary island, which offers vibrant nightlife and parties, as well as five-star hotels and fine dining restaurants, popular among yacht charterers.

As our charter brokers know, your Spanish charter itinerary would not be perfect without a visit to Formentera. One of the most famous islands in the Balerialic, Formentera is known for its pristine beaches, glittering sea and tranquillity. A day trip to the stunning island was a fantastic idea.

Trina mentions that the weather in that part of the Mediterranean could be tricky, which might adjust your charter itinerary accordingly, but there are still plenty of places to visit. When planning a yacht charter holiday for a week or ten days in the area, it is a great idea to visit Mallorca and Ibiza.
