When renting a boat in Ibiza either to sail its waters or to go to the neighboring island Formentera is important to keep in mind a number of factors to make the experience perfect and to make the most of your charter.
Obvious as it may seem necessary to take into account the capacity of the boat chosen and the group never to pass that number, for legal reasons and the very safety of the occupants. Charter boats by regulations in Spain may not exceed 12 passengers plus crew aboard sailing. For larger groups hiring a schooner or Catamaran passenger is necessary.
Depending on the chosen boat will need a degree or another.
Not all boats are available for rent without skipper in fact it is difficult to find some more than 30 feet or about 10 m to be available in this format, although there is some exception, especially if the boat is not very new.
Autonomy and consumption according to the route and budget
Before choosing boat route you want to do with it should be considered. Before choosing the route you have to know what boat is to be effected. For example if the path one chooses is to turn to Ibiza, more than 64 miles, and want to rent a sailboat, with an average speed of six knots, it would take more than 10 hours to complete regardless of the times of entry and exit port. A day charter standard it offers customer the boat for eight hours, so this route would not be appropriate for this type of boat if you have only one day.
On the contrary if a fast motor for this purpose is chosen, it is a good option as long as one is willing to pay the high cost of fuel in such a long route.
One of the most important. Keep in mind is the knowledge of the weather conditions that will develop the charter. A bad forecast can spoil the illusion of renting a boat. Depending on the conditions will choose one route or another always looking for all downwind. In the summer season in Ibiza is dominated by easterly winds, hence the popularity of charters to the west coast of Formentera, almost always sheltered.
