Featured boat: Hunton XRS37

No trip to Ibiza is complete without the experience of chartering a boat and experiencing the beauty of the Mediterranean by sea. Cruising out of the Ibiza Marina and viewing the beauty of Dalt Vila from the water, picking up speed as you cut through the crystalline waters and head across towards Formentera, stopping off at Es Palmador for a swim in water that is more pure than the Caribbean Sea and then continuing on to a glamorous lunch destination is pure indulgence.

From the minute you step aboard the Hunton XRS37, you’ll feel as though you’re starring in a James Bond movie set in Ibiza. A slick, race pedigree motor cruiser with a capacity for up to seven passengers plus the skipper, it’s been described as the Aston Martin of speedboats. Hand built in the UK with a stylish teak interior, the quality of craftsmanship is second to none, with expansive sunbathing areas on the front and rear, plush seating and a shaded canopy.

The 37-foot vessel is not only gorgeous to look at, it’s powerful and smooth to sail, amassing a speed of up to 50 knots at sea. Stable and smooth when it encounters choppy waters, the Hunton XRS37 is also extremely economic on fuel for a boat of its size due to the deep V hull design. Fully licensed and insured for day charters, it’s the ideal boat for groups of friends and families alike.

A great sound system is the icing on the cake, with iPod connectivity so you can provide your favourite soundtrack to what is guaranteed to be one of the most memorable days of your Ibiza holiday. Whether you prefer to take it easy and cruise in style as you laze on the plush deck or make the most of the boat’s power and whiz to your destination at high speed while holding onto your hats, the Hunton XRS37 experience can be catered to suit your group and your style.

Prices range from 750€ to 1100€ per day throughout the season (excluding IVA and fuel costs) and includes snorkeling equipment and complimentary drinks, plus an experienced skipper who can guide you to some of Ibiza and Formentera’s secret bays and coves in addition to the well-known hotspots such as the white-sand paradise of Illetes. Here you can head to shore for a luxurious lunch and cocktails in chic restaurants such as Juan y Andrea or Beso Beach with the who’s who of Ibiza and Formentera.

When it’s time to head back to Ibiza, you’ll be sailing into the sunset – an Instagram worthy moment that always has guests planning their next day at sea as they step back onto the shore. Stunning scenery, swimming in the incredible Formentera waters, fabulous food and your very own rockstar boat – what’s not to love?
