Charter guests wanting to discover the beautiful coastlines of Spain will be pleased to know that the Passenger Yacht rules on the Spanish luxury yacht charter grounds have changed recently and superyachts accommodating over 12 guests are now allowed to anchor overnight.

In order to protect sensitive marine environments, the Service Instruction sets out the boundaries where sailing yachts and motor yachts are and are not allowed to anchor: The passenger yachts will need to liaise with local authorities to find out any restrictions in the region before anchoring, thereby taking into consideration the ever-changing marine environment and seasonal fluxes.
