This Month’s Marina – Club de Mar
The Club De Mar Marina In Palma De Mallorca has been added to World Marine Guide’s list of marinas. This popular and well run marina has many facilities and for both yacht and crew and makes a great base for exploring the Balearic Islands.
Palma de Mallorca is on the northern coast of Palma Bay and the marina is situated in the cities busy commercial port and just a short walk away from the city centre.
Yacht Charter will enjoy the wide range of top quality offered by the staff here, that have earned the Club de Mar the Blue Flag achievement many years ago.
The exact location of the marina grounds is on the western side of the Bay of Palma, with the coordinates: latitude 39° 34′ and longitude 2° 38′, which will set Yacht Charter arrivals just 10 minutes from Palma de Mallorca International airport. It faces the inside of the bay and has a number of piers and breakwaters that cater for boats up to 120m in length. The outer breakwater is parallel to the coast and is followed by a smaller, similarly shaped pier inside the marina. Both are marked with red flashing lights, as is the main pier entry.
Since the marina is so close to the commercial harbor, there are little to no underwater hazards. However, a nighttime approach should increase the danger of collision due to the large number of vessels circulating the area, especially during the Yacht Charter high season. Instructions for the approach can be obtained from the marina by contacting them on VHF channel 16 and 9.
There are 500 berths for guests and an additional 120 dry berths, all of which are equipped with power (220V and 380V) and water outlets, as well as diesel and petrol refueling using a hydrant system for Yacht Charter boats over 15m.
Additional services at the berth are wi-fi access, towing and salvage, phone access, and 24h security. The marina also has a service station which can provide with a number of services depending on the type of work you need done on your boat.

The modern marina also has showers and toilets, as well as an amazing pool within the “Harbor Club” where the tires and thirsty Yacht Charter sailor can find some entertainment facilities where he can relax and take in the Mallorcan experience.
