There are various costs to consider when renting a yacht in Ibiza, but understandably the biggest outlay is the rental itself.
Another important consideration is fuel, which is calculated on usage. The simple rule of thumb is: the bigger the boat, the more fuel it will probably use. Any good agent will have information regarding the hourly amount of fuel used by a particular boat, and will also be able to provide estimates on how long specific trips take. For example, the return trip between Ibiza and Formentera usually takes about 1.5-2 hours. Hourly consumption multiplied by the pump price gives the approximate cost. If you are concerned about fuel prices, perhaps a catamaran or sailboat might be a good option?
It’s not just what you want to rent though – it’s also about the service. While most rentals include a skipper and, depending on the boat, crew, it’s also possible to sit back and relax with a hostess or cook aboard. Costs could also increase if you sleep aboard or if you’re mooring away from the base port. Some boats can be bareboat (meaning that they are rented without a skipper), however anyone doing this will need the correct certification.
Many operators include a drinks package, however these can vary. Some provide soft drinks, while others also provide beer and wine. If drinks aren’t included in a price, most agents will organise a package for you, with the prices being the same as those found in shops and supermarkets. Therefore, whether drinks are included or not, should not sway you too much.
