Every year, we know summer is just around the corner when the invite to Smart Charter Ibiza’s annual opening party lands on our desks. The White Isle’s largest boat hire company, the open day at the stylish head quarters in Ibiza Town is a first opportunity to marvel at their fleet of slick vessels, check out the latest water gadgets and secure an exclusive discount for your aquatic adventure as you let the dedicated team members put together a tailor-made package for you.

This year’s opening marked a special moment in the still relatively young company’s history, as the Smart Charter Ibiza crew celebrated their recent merger with Boatsetter, an online rental portal that is comparable to the hugely successful Airbnb, which is one of its investors. Marketing Manager Jorge Cabre told us, ”We are currently the biggest community of boat rentals in the world and after starting our business in the US, we have recently begun our expansion into the Europe, so we are proud to acquire a company that is not only a market leader in Ibiza, but also one of the biggest operations in the Mediterranean.”

As every year, the island community was out in force to celebrate another successful summer spent flying across the crystal waters of Ibiza and Formentera with Smart Charter Ibiza and, now, Boatsetter. Guests sipped on complimentary drinks provided by BeDrinks, toasting the occasion with crisp bubbles from Nina Dennuit and potent cocktails mixed with Casamigo Tequila amongst others.

A powerful sound system set up by Ibiza PA and Void, with island-favourite DJ daZZla going b2b with up-and-coming turntable talent Annis to spin a funky and powerful feel good set of energetic house. Delicious canapés such as mini veggie tacos and Spanish tortillas floated past on generously laden trays, helping us to keep up the energy to dance, chat and mingle until the end of the evening. With a brand new wish list of boats, villas, water toys and breath-taking routes mentally compiled, we eventually left completely convinced that this will be Smart Charter Ibiza’s biggest year yet!
