It was our pleasure to host UK grime star Lethal Bizzle and his team onboard our Chris Craft 28 as they shot the ‘after party’ video for new single Playground. It was a lot of fun and we wish Lethal every success with the track. (easyboats features from 2:47)
We recently co-sponsored the installation of 350m² of vinyl to transform a stark white CAT scan at Son Espases University Hospital, Palma de Mallorca, into a relaxing fun pirate-theme room. We hope the children will feel much more comfortable. Many Spanish media – print, online and TV – picked up the news. Here’s an example from Diario de Mallorca.
easyboats’ Sakura, a 52 foot Italian-design Riva Rivale, graces the front cover of the summer edition of ABC Mallorca magazine. The yacht, available for charter with easyboats, also played host to a wonderful seven-page fashion editorial feature inside. It was our pleasure to collaborate with this well-respected publication.
easyboats highlights the risks of illegal bareboat charter in the Balearics, including the lack of insurance and safety equipment.
Sarah Drane, a regular columnist with The Islander Magazine, tried her hand as an apprentice stewardess for the day on an easyboats-managed Mangusta 80.
Sadly more than 1,000 vessels are currently involved in illegal charter activities in the Balearics, putting the industry and customers at risk.

Yachting Pages spreads the word about our celebration this month. We are very happy and grateful for all the congratulations received from collaborators, clients and friends.
‘How to Spend It’ is described as “a website of worldly pleasures from the Financial Times”. We are delighted that they chose to feature easyboats as one of their “worldly pleasures”.
easyboats featured in superyachttimes.com: “Charter regulations in the Balearics”
Until now, non-EU-flagged yachts were only permitted to sail around the Balearics but not to offer charter services. From September, this has changed, and there is a free market for all flags.
Combined with recent positive rulings on matriculation tax, it’s clear that Spain is trying to make things easier for the industry and we hope this will generate extra nautical business for the Islands.
Whilst Magaluf has become notorious this summer, we believe it will have zero impact on Mallorca’s luxury yacht industry.
Our clients are of course aware of the Magaluf situation, and feel sad as they know the ‘real’ Mallorca as well as we do, but the headlines are not putting people off. If anything, in spite of its location, Nikki Beach is enjoying far greater success than many predicted when it opened in 2012, with a constant stream of super- and megayachts from all over the Med paying the venue a visit for glamorous dining and partying.
2014 is shaping up to be a good year for easyboats, we have already closed two significant sales, a Riva and a Mangusta, to serious high net worth clients, and added the Riva to our charter portfolio – the only Riva Rivale available in Mallorca. Additional deals are in the pipeline.
On June 13th, Mangusta owners from different parts of the world shared a weekend cruising the waters of Ibiza and Formentera.
Mangustas between 25 and 40 metres in length sailed together to the island of Formentera in perfect weather conditions to enjoy a fabulous lunch at the famous Restaurant Molí de Sal before returning to Ibiza with the last rays of sun.
This initiative, organized by Michl Marine, Mangusta’s exclusive distributor in the Balearics and collaborators with easyboats, represents the first of hopefully many gatherings for owners of this prestige yacht brand.
The second edition of the Palma Superyacht Show will take place from 30 April to 4 May 2014. Running concurrently with the Palma International Boat Show, the event showcases yachts from 24 metres both for sale and for charter.
