Mario Arias Skipper for CharterAlia

A huge hello! My name is Mario and you guys could be my next guests onboard our boats for charter in Ibiza! That truly sounds marvellous!

You are probably wondering who I am, so here are a few lines that will give you a better idea of my life and how I got here, starting from the 80´s.

Music is my passion, along with animals… and sushi and salads! But let’s focus on sailing!

I have such an amazing family who have taught me to sail! My father, my grandfather, my uncle and my cousin Angel (who is one of the best regatta competitors) all put in so much time and effort to help me, so I had the opportunity to learn from different aspects of each person and in various types of boats, starting with the dinghy sailing.

Smiles and sailing always go together.

I have had my skipper license since 2000, and in 2003 I sailed from Ivory Coast to Spain by the Atlantic Ocean. I have also sailed every year through the Western Mediterranean.

The following years brought me more cruise regattas until I managed to finish my degree in the Science of Communication.

No feeling like the adrenaline that consumes you while racing.

Again, I lived incredibly exceptional experiences during three frantic seasons in the Formula 1 of the sea, the TP52 Series (2006-2008), two years in mono types (2009 and 2010), and finally another three years in ancient ships that leave you breathing like Hispania (1909, who built Alfonso XIII) or the very Moonbeam IV (1914, where Raniero of Monaco and Grace Kelly lived one of the sweetest honeymoons in history). Meanwhile, I completed my studies for Ocean Yachtmaster.

Exceptional experiences throughout my career.

With the competitive races, the trainings and the transports behind me, it was time to take the plunge into the world of chartering. It was then that I made the wonderful decision to work where the most beautiful waters on the planet were located…

Astonishing places in the Virgin Islands, Saint Maarten, Saint Barts, Anguilla, Dominica, Saint Vincent and Guadeloupe Archipelago.

Enchanting sailing in the Mediterranean in paradises of the Ionian Sea (Cephalonia, Ithaca, Lefkada …), fun and fauna in the Strait of Gibraltar and Sotogrande (one of the most luxurious residential areas in Europe) and finally (the best for last), Baleares: Formentera and Ibiza! The best islands in the world, here we come!!
