the most authentic zero waste experience
Sailing Boat Experience
ON A SAILING BOAT THERE IS NO ROOM FOR WASTE
OVER 100 PEOPLE took the chance
To live on a sailing boat is a completely different experience from all points of view
Everything is different on a small sailing boat. The door can be a window and you can use the window as a door. The space is small so you’ll have to organise yourself like never before. The boat is always moving together with the water, in all direction, including up and down.
the values we stand for
We need to get back to the real needs in life and value more the vital elements of Nature than any presumed important objects
The boat is 7,7 long and 2,5 m wide, manufactured in 1969. It has 1 double bed in the front cabin, an extendable couch in the cockpit and a single bed on the starboard. So 5 people can sleep on it, although the space might be a bit too small.
Cooking is possible. The boat is equipped with a camping gas cooking machine, dishes, a pot, a pen, plastic glasses and lots of food and spices. 60 litres of fresh water is also available for washing the dishes, hands and teeth. We do not advise to drink water from the tank.
The shower is a camping one, manually operated, set outside with 20 litres go fresh water. So there is no possibility of long showers.
The camping toilet has its own small cabin.
If you like kayaking then you can kayak to the closest island for 30 minutes/ way or to the closes city for 1 hours/ way.
If you love marine life, like we do, you can jump from the boat and snorkel in the area where you can see plenty of fish, crabs, sea cucumbers, marine sponges, a few tiny corals, plenty of sea urchins and sea grass, octopus or even a ray.
There is enough depth – 7 m – to have some free diving sessions if it’s one of your hobbies.
You can bathe in the sun on the boat or on one of the many bigger or smaller beaches around.
You can paddle board among the boats in the gulf and train your equilibrium skills. You can also use the paddle board to do some stretching and even a more complex yoga session.
On the south-eastern coast of the island, Puerto Portals is known to be the most beautiful and expensive harbour in Palma de Mallorca. It is 10 km away from the main city – Palma.
There are plenty of restaurants, clubs, grocery shops in the area and in the city near by so don’t worry about the shopping options.
If you want to get entertained by caged marine animals (WE REALLY HOPE YOU DON’T) you can go to Marine Land which is right in front of the beach.
If you rent a car, depending on how much you want to walk, there are a few parking options: you can park in Puerto Portals parking – 1 EUR/ min., Marine Land parking – free for 2 h – no payment options so you’ll have to keep on taking a ticket every 2 hours or a free parking place 5 minutes walking.
Our Happy Guests!
me her contact details should I need anything. The boat itself was exactly what I needed. A quaint boat in the harbour, to relax and enjoy the sun and water. Stocked with some bread and jams, gas cooker, pots and pans, oils and pasta. I had all of the basics to cook some meals. The best part of the boat was the “relaxation station” on the bow, complete with a bean bag cushion. On my second last day on the boat, Raluca reached out and asked if I had plans scheduled for the following day, and mentioned that she wanted to take me to a beautiful beach in Mallorca. I agreed. Raluca and I travelled by scooter to the beach where we hung hammocks, swam, snorkelled and enjoyed each other’s company. We then went in to town for lunch and to see the cathedral. Raluca was extremely communicative, attentive and an incredible host throughout my stay. I would highly recommend her Airbnb if you’d like to switch off and live a simple life for a few days.
