This yacht is ideal for groups of up to 4 people, plus skipper, since it has two double cabins, one aft and one forward. It also has a large living area with a couch for the skipper to sleep on. If there happens to be a group of 5 people, the 5th guest may sleep on the smaller individual couch of the saloon. This boat is only offered as skippered charter for full weeks and many times also for one day charters.

In the two images on the left you can see the new large awning, ideal for anchoring and enjoying a nice shade area.

One of the main features of this sailing yacht, that you can enjoy every day when the skipper drops the anchor, is a large awning that covers the entire outer surface of the vessel. We also include an inflatable kayak and a dinghy with a 6HP outboard motor , so you can disembark at any beach whenever you want to stroll, or for lunch or dinner at any of the restaurants that dot most beaches of Ibiza and Formentera .

This sailboat has a capacity of freshwater of almost 200 liters plus two additional water tanks which have add up 300 more liters of drinking water. This way we can go several days without stopping by the ports to refill the water tanks. There is no doubt that this is one of the sailboats with greater freshwater capacity, of  these dimensions in the entire boat charter market in Ibiza, with a total capacity of 500 liters, which even surpasses many catamarans and larger ships.
