MALLORCA will soon have its own 31-metre luxury superyacht capable of hosting an incredible 36 guests for day charter. The super-sized superyacht is the latest edition to easyboat’s portfolio for the 2015 season and will bring an added dimension to the Mallorca boating scene and tourist trade.
The Queen South is a fully-legal charter boat operating out of Club de Mar in Palma with four luxurious en suite cabins and two tenders, a jet ski, scooter and waterski with snorkelling equipment.
“It’s impossible to overlook the importance of Queen South’s arrival to the Balearics,” said Lorenzo Vila, director of easyboats. “By definition a charter boat can only accommodate 12 passengers, regardless of its size, but this 31-metre holds a transportation licence which allows this figure to shoot up to 36 guests plus a crew of five. While this regulation only applies for day charter – it’s a maximum of 12 for overnight stays – it still opens endless doors for corporate entertainment, special family celebrations or indeed royalty and celebrities with large entourages.”
Lorenzo said that after 25 years of trading, all that could be offered beforehand was a low-budget, mass-market catamaran or to charter multiple vessels at the same time.
“In order to enjoy comfort and luxury, the second option was really the only option,” he said. “We’ve handled a corporate ‘jolly’ for the same British client several years running and charter four or five boats for the 26 to 30 guests, cruising as a flotilla from bay to bay. It works well, but not as well as having all guests on one boat – not to mention the cost savings involved in chartering one boat over five.”
The Queen South is an Italian-designed flybridge Versilcraft 100 and prices start at €14,400 per day. Visit www.easyboats.com for more information.
