SPAIN – Spain Mainland
Everything about Spain represents the passion and power of an awesome culture. The swirling Flamenco skirts, the flash of the Matador’s cloak, the sangria, the tapas, and the rich and flaming personalities of the Spanish. Everything about Spain is red; except the startling blue backdrop of the Mediterranean, where the yachts moor with their shiny hulls, and the silvery green leaves of the olive groves.
The northern Catalonian city of Barcelona, Spain’s second largest, is the launching base for most of Spain’s yacht charters. Barcelona is a melting pot of gothic and medieval architecture and the culture and nightlife in Barcelona, is as good as anywhere.
Favorite yacht charter locations from mainland Spain include Costa Brava, Costa Blanca, Costa del Soland of course the Balearic Islands. The recent Spanish focus on modern marinas, has allowed for some fantastic new marina developments along the coast, where all sailors and yacht charters are welcome.
Due to the great facilities and easy international access, Barcelona is a fantastic city in which to begin your yacht charter vacation. From here, you can easily sail down the coast, to Costa Blanca, or across to an isolated bays of the Balearic Islands. Enjoy the natural beauty of the Spanish coastline and the unique blend of vibrant Spanish culture.
The Spain yacht charter scene has become increasingly popular and the types of yacht charter available in Barcelona, The Balearics, Palma, Valencia and The Costa Brava are all the main types of yacht charter including motor, sailing, crewed yachts, catamaran, luxury yachts and the ever more familiar super yacht charter.
Like most of the Mediterranean, the Spain yacht chartering season generally runs from April to the end of October.
