Discover Ibiza this summer with the island’s first and only zero-
emission boating experience
La Bella Verde, Ibiza’s first and only solar powered catamaran experience, has announced the addition of two new green boats to its existing eco-friendly fleet for 2019. This will provide even more global visitors with the unique experience of relaxing in one of the world’s most desirable destinations, whilst minimising their carbon footprint, exploring a selection of the most beautiful and secluded coves in the Spanish Balearic coastline.
The Green Experience – Clean, Green & Silent
La Bella Verde is powered by wind and solar energy to provide the ultimate eco experience in Ibiza. They depart daily throughout the summer until mid-October from Las Salinas beach, part of the island’s protected natural parks and home to a diverse ecosystem that stretches from South East Ibiza to Formentera. Hosting a number of vessels for a range of needs, from small groups of five, perfect for families and couples, right through to large groups of 30. Each full-day trip allows for a complete exploration of the surrounding torquoise waters and the white-sand coves of Formentera and its nearby isles. Staying true to the company’s ethos, gourmet lunches made with organic and locally sourced island produce and seasonal vegetables are served on board or on a secluded beach.
One per cent of every eco charter is donated to the recently launched La Bella Verde Foundation, designed to protect the biodiversity of Salinas Natural Park including the Posidonia, a rare seagrass endemic to the Mediterranean Sea in Ibiza, as well as supporting local businesses to become plastic-free and minimise their environmental impact.
A Green Boating Movement
Founded with a vision to transform the boating industry and create a movement to protect aquatic life while supporting marine preservation, La Bella Verde plans to evolve internationally and inspire others to adopt a more sustainable approach. Through the launch of an innovative boat building service this autumn, companies and individuals from around the world will be able to own a custom built, carbon-neutral catamaran. The La Bella Verde Foundation will establish itself at each new location, continuing to preserve and protect our oceans at an international level.
Notes to the editors:
Vessels are equipped with crew, a fridge with refreshments, sound system, shade canopy, masks and snorkels, life jackets and safety equipment.
About La Bella Verde
Starting with just one catamaran in 2014, the pioneering eco-charter company was founded by friends Charlie Priestley, Alastair Glover-Main and Maarten Bernhart with a dream of offering an eco-boating experience.
Since the company’s inception, the team has transformed traditional boats into eco-friendly modes of transportation with the use of electric engines and advanced solar panels. This autumn, the team will launch a new customised solar catamaran building service in collaboration with the industry’s most reputed boat builders.
The name La Bella Verde, or “The Beautiful Green” is symbol of what the founders have sought to create – an intimate, low-impact experience which aims to make positive change in the wider boating industry internationally.
