Delivery Journey from Portimão, Portugal to Palma, Mallorca

Pre-Departure Preparation

Before setting off on our journey from Portimão, Portugal to Palma, Mallorca with a Sunseeker Predator 55' motor yacht, our team at Timeless Moments conducted thorough pre-departure preparations to ensure a safe and smooth voyage.

Safety Checks

We began with a comprehensive inspection of the yacht:

  • Hull and Deck Examination: Checked for any signs of damage or wear.
  • Engine and Mechanical Systems: Inspected engines, generators, fuel systems, and hydraulics.
  • Electrical Systems: Tested navigation lights, communication devices, and onboard electronics.
  • Safety Equipment: Confirmed life jackets, lifeboats, fire extinguishers, first aid kits, and emergency flares were present and in good condition.
  • Provisioning: Stocked the yacht with necessary supplies, including food, water, and fuel, ensuring redundancy for essential items.

Navigation Planning

Our navigation planning included several critical steps:

  • Weather Analysis: Assessed weather forecasts for the entire route to avoid adverse conditions.
  • Route Planning: Charted a course with consideration for fuel stops, overnight stays, and potential hazards.
  • Fuel Calculation: Estimated fuel consumption at an average speed of 18 knots to determine necessary refueling points.
  • Marina Coordination: Contacted marinas in advance to arrange berths for overnight stays and refueling.

The Journey

Day 1: Portimão to Faro (Approximately 35 nautical miles)

We departed from Portimão Marina early in the morning. The first leg was intentionally kept short to allow us to test all systems under real cruising conditions. The yacht cruised smoothly along the Algarve coastline, providing breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Overnight Stop: We arrived at Faro Marina by mid-afternoon. After securing the yacht, we conducted a thorough inspection to ensure all systems were functioning optimally. This included checking the engines, navigation systems, and onboard amenities. Satisfied with the performance, we enjoyed a relaxing evening exploring the charming city of Faro.

Fuel Stop: Refueled at Faro Marina to ensure sufficient fuel for the next leg.

Day 2: Faro to Gibraltar (Approximately 130 nautical miles)

With all systems confirmed to be in excellent working order, we embarked on the next leg of our journey. Leaving Faro behind, we cruised south along the coast towards Gibraltar. The weather was favourable, and the yacht handled the conditions well.

Overnight Stop: We reached Gibraltar Marina by late evening. Docked and took the opportunity to explore the historic and culturally rich area.

Fuel Stop: Refueled at the marina to prepare for the next leg of the journey.

Day 3: Gibraltar to Cartagena, Spain (Approximately 190 nautical miles)

Departing from Gibraltar, we navigated through the Strait of Gibraltar and headed along the southern coast of Spain towards Cartagena. The yacht performed beautifully, maintaining a steady pace and providing a comfortable ride.

Overnight Stop: Arrived at Yacht Port Cartagena by late evening. After docking, we enjoyed the vibrant atmosphere of this historic port city.

Fuel Stop: Topped up the fuel tanks at the marina to ensure sufficient fuel for the next leg.

Day 4: Cartagena to Ibiza (Approximately 140 nautical miles)

We continued our journey from Cartagena, heading towards the Balearic Islands. The weather conditions were favorable, and the yacht cruised smoothly across the Mediterranean Sea.

Overnight Stop: Reached Ibiza Marina by late evening. Docked and explored the lively island of Ibiza, known for its beautiful beaches and vibrant nightlife.

Fuel Stop: Refueled at the marina to prepare for the final leg of the journey.

Day 5: Ibiza to Palma, Mallorca (Approximately 70 nautical miles)

Our final leg took us from Ibiza to Palma, Mallorca. The sea conditions remained favorable, and the yacht maintained a steady pace, cruising smoothly along the Balearic Islands.

Arrival in Palma: By early evening, we arrived at Palma Marina. After docking, we conducted a final systems check to ensure everything was in perfect condition after the journey. We celebrated the successful completion of the delivery with a wonderful meal at one of Palma's renowned waterfront restaurants.
