Complete guide to renting a boat in Ibiza: everything you need to know

Ibiza, with its crystal-clear waters and stunning landscapes, is a perfect destination for enjoying boating. If you're planning to rent a boat on this beautiful island, it's important to be well-informed to ensure you have an unforgettable experience. In this comprehensive guide, we'll explain everything you need to know about renting a boat in Ibiza, from the different types of available vessels to the best rental locations and useful tips for choosing the right boat.

Types of Available Boats for Rent:

  • Luxury Yachts: For those seeking an exclusive and luxurious sailing experience, luxury yachts are the perfect choice. Equipped with all imaginable amenities, such as jacuzzis, spacious lounges, and professional crew, these yachts are ideal for celebrating special occasions or simply enjoying life on board. In our fleet, we have one of these boats, the Bavaria 39 Sport, so you can enjoy a vessel with all kinds of luxuries.
  • Sailboats: For lovers of classic sailing, sailboats offer a unique experience on the sea. Enjoy the wind in your sails as you explore the coasts of Ibiza in a peaceful and relaxing manner. Sailboats are also an excellent option for those looking to learn to sail or improve their skills at sea.
  • Speedboats: If you prefer speed and adrenaline, a speedboat is the perfect choice. These agile vessels will allow you to quickly explore the most remote coves and reach destinations inaccessible by land. Some of the options we offer at Motonáutica Ibiza include the Saver 330WA "Redding," Saver 330WA "Marvin," or Saver 870 WA "Bonham."
  • RIBs: Within our fleet, you will find a wide range of RIBs available for rent with or without a skipper if you have the appropriate boating license. With this type of vessel, you'll be able to anchor right on the front line within the best beaches of Ibiza and Formentera due to their shallow draft, a very good option for those who prefer to enjoy shallow waters. Take a look at ours in the boat rental section.
  • Catamarans: Catamarans are ideal for large groups or families looking to enjoy a spacious and comfortable sailing experience. With ample indoor and outdoor spaces, these boats offer comfort and stability on the sea.

  • Security deposit (Bond): Most boat rental companies will require a security deposit as a guarantee in case of damage to the vessel. Make sure you understand the terms and conditions of the rental agreement before signing.
