Hi there! My name is José Navas, CEO and founder of CharterAlia. I also live and work as a skipper on one of our catamarans. I am a Software Engineer (University of Granada, 1997) and I have a bachelor’s degree in translation (University of Miami, 2005). I am a vocational, self-taught Quixote-like person, who has worked in many areas, including as a SEO consultant, ski instructor, sales manager, private pilot, software engineer, sworn translator, professional skipper, and a long list of other crazy jobs!
These days, I’m trying to multitask 3 simultaneous projects, and since I am not a woman, multitasking is often quite hard. I have a beautiful chalet for rent in Sierra Nevada, I run an Internet firm, and finally, my greatest satisfaction, CharterAlia, a boat charter company in the Balearic islands. It took me a while, but I finally turned my passion for the sea and sailing into my profession and my way of life. We started with a tiny sailboat back in 2010, then a catamaran in 2011, and today we manage a fleet of over 40 boats throughout Ibiza, Formentera, Mallorca, and Menorca!
If you are a bit curious, you can read more about how I gave a radical change to my life and I started to do what I really loved here: My passion for sailboats and catamarans.
At the end of each season in Ibiza, I always make a video trying to summarize the experiences we have aboard the catamaran where I work as a skipper. If you are interested in renting one of our boats, please press PLAY and share it.
