About Us

North Mallorca Charters was founded in 2011 and is based in the marina of the lovely town of Port de Pollensa. Our objective was to provide the island's visitors with an affordable way to add an extra dimension to their holiday. So many visitors do not experience the hidden beauty of the island which can only be appreciated from the sea. Join us and experience it the way we do, sailing its coastline and swimming in its waters.

If you would like to see more photos of the Esmeralda and see what we are offering right now why not visit our facebook page.

When we first opened in 2011, a local TV station did a feature on our services. A clip from the TV programme is now available on YouTube.

Message from the Owner

"Hello, my name is Sebastian Gonzalez Iannelli, I am the owner of North Mallorca Charters. I started going to sea when I was just a child, joining my father, who was the captain of a fishing boat. In 1994 I finished my academic studies and joined the Argentinian Merchant Marines as a 3rd officer. Since then I´ve navigated around much of the world, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Peru and Cuba, and to Europe and Africa - England, Spain, Germany, France, Belgium, Holland, Greece and Morocco. At twenty seven years old I became a Master Merchant Marine Captain.

I´m thirty nine now, and for the last seven years I´ve been navigating the Mediterranean, working for Scuba Mallorca in Port de Pollensa, as the dive boat captain and diving instructor. Last year I met "Esmeralda" and now she is my boat, and together we want to take make your holiday dreams come true."

In order to do this we maintain the highest safety standards for the Esmeralda and ensure that our staff have the highest qualifications and regularly refresh their skills.

As well as regular checks for sea-worthiness, she is inspected for safety equipment, fire fighting equipment and navigational equipment. All insurances must be kept fully up date to ensure that all passengers and third parties are fully covered. The Esmeralda passed this annual inspection in February 2012.

Every two years Sebastian must also pass a general medical examination, including vision testing, hearing, blood tests, arterial tension, cholesterol, and general health for sea service.
