RIBS: Vary in size and some have cabins and toilets.
THOSE who have owned their own boat are well aware not only of the depreciation of their pride and joy once it hits the waters, but also the costly mooring fees, insurance, storage and general upkeep which becomes a burden rather than a pleasure. RIB can accommodate many boat lovers by offering a chartering service to their members so that they can still captain a vessel of their choice. RIB Club Global is a new concept in cruising without the headache of cost and maintenance that inevitably comes with the ownership of any type of boat. James Patterson who is the Managing Director of the company once said that the cheapest part of owning a boat is the day that you purchase it, and so many sailors will totally agree. First operating in Menorca back in 2009, such was the success of RIB Club that they continued to grow the business in Mallorca where demand was so high they had to order three new boats to bring the fleets up to a total of 10. RIBS vary in size starting from a six metre which accommodates up to eight comfortably. Some RIBS even boast cabins and toilets. Memberships last a full calendar year with some of the benefits being that you can cancel one day up to the day of the booking with no penalties. Also, now thanks to the simple points system any unused days roll over into the next year of membership. RIB Club Global has attracted a following and the company has grown so rapidly that they now have even more ports of call. The company is now boasting five more locations where you can hire from, Palma, Portals, Andrax, Pollensa and Cala D’or. What a perfect way to enjoy Mallorca’s beautiful coastlines at hassle free and affordable prices. Prices start at €1,799 which gives members up to six days throughout the year, a gold membership costs €2,499 which gives up to nine days boating and their platinum membership is only €3,999 per year giving up to 18 days boating, a fraction of the cost compared to boat ownership.
