“Spanish IVA (VAT) remains at 21% – nearly double the typical fees found in other EU countries,” states Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charters and 1-800 Yacht Charters. Sheeder adds, “A myriad of permits and registration requirements makes it difficult for charter vessels to commit to cruising in Spain.Without Spanish registration, these yachts cannot begin and end a charter within Spanish waters. So the combination of administrative burdens and high IVA keeps most charter yachts out of Spain.”
Sheeder explains, “The tax has not been eliminated. The Ministry was careful to use the words, ‘Ceased to be applied.’ While we expect the Spanish Parliament to vote in favor of the Ministry’s position on the matriculation tax, there is no guarantee that a future administration won’t vote to reinstate it.”

Bon appetit! Motoryacht TAKARA will begin the 2017 Balearic Island yacht charter season with a new chef in the galley.
“Available in the Balearic Islands, M/Y TAKARA begins (the) 2017 season with a new super experienced Chef in her crew,” reports the yacht’s manager. “Chef Daniel Wilbor begins a new professional venture on board…With over 10 years of experience in the yachting industry he has already worked as a chef in 11 different yachts and has sailed all across the Atlantic Ocean! Born in Great Britain, he describes himself as a creative, competent and talented cooker with an special interest in Thai cuisine.”
She then gave us more information about him: “He also has a wide repertoire and can produce excellent meals from Mediterranean to Japanese, Indian and Asian Fusion, or North American and English dishes, all to a very high standard. His style is fresh and innovative combining a respect for quality products and a good arsenal of both classical and modernist cooking techniques.”
Delicious, well-plated meals are integral to the overall Superyacht Experience, and it’s always good news when a chef like Daniel joins a professional superyacht team.
The San Lorenzo 126 yacht TAKARA is one of our newest additions to the Ibiza yacht charter fleet. This is a brand new, 2016 model, 38 meters in length, with comfortable accommodations for 12 guests in 5 staterooms (1 Master, 1 VIP, 1 Double and 2 Twins – with a Pullman berth in each)
Chef Wilbor will be part of a 6 person crew.
Motoryacht TAKARA is fully licensed to charter in Spain. This is extremely important and often overlooked by charter brokers and charterers. Without this special registration, a yacht cannot begin and end a charter in Spanish waters; furthermore, local Spanish workers like massage therapists, are precluded from coming aboard and providing services for the charter guests. Without having a Spanish yacht charter license, a superyacht needs to begin and end the charter in a remote location, like France, which adds wasted time and increased fuel costs to the overall charter. That is not the Superyacht Experience we envision for our clients!
July and August = 24.000€ per day — 145.000€ per week + 21% VAT
Rest of the year = 21.500€ per day — 130.000€ per week + 21% VAT
(The price includes a berth in Palma Mallorca in the summer season)
