Jeanneau introduces three attractive new boats in 2023

Jeanneau continues to set a firm course for the horizon with the launch of three new boat models that seek to complete its wide range of sailing and motor boats. The prestigious yacht builder will present these innovative monohulls at next year’s boat shows.
We will have to wait a few months to meet them live, but the French company of which Náutica Chacón is a representative in Fuerteventura and Lanzarote has already advanced its news. Here’s a preview for you.

Jeanneau’s first bet in the field of motor boats is the Merry Fisher 1295 Fly. It’s a vessel that combines elegance and comfort.
Its exteriors stand out for the new panoramic window in the hull, while its interiors conquer passengers with great comfort thanks to three premium cabins. Comfort is guaranteed during both navigation and at anchor.

This new model concentrates on-board living areas specially designed for resting with family and friends.
Outside, it leaves room to swim and to spend time with your feet in the water in the aft cabin, thanks to the very spacious electric sundeck to starboard. To port, a large gangway makes it easy to board all your guests.

At the bow, relax comfortably in one of the three built-in loungers. Moments of leisure 100% guaranteed!
For those who love enjoying good times, take advantage of the fully equipped flybridge to drive at full speed, sunbathing in total privacy and enjoying a cocktail overlooking the sea at the end of the day.

Merry Fisher 1296 fly Jeanneau

The interior of the new Merry Fisher 1295 Fly stands out for its large, bright windows with panoramic views on the water. In addition, the yacht comes equipped with the latest technologies of larger ships, to pilot with ease. The starboard side door will allow you to access and manoeuvre easily.

Second, the Les Herbiers-based yacht builder will turn heads at next year’s boat shows with the Cap Camarat 10.5 CC.
It is a new outboard designed to fulfill multiple functions at the customer’s choice: water sports, fishing, comfortable navigation…

Cap Camarat 10.5

This motor boat comes with a V-shaped hull for a very comfortable navigation, with a powerful 2 x 300 CV or 2 x 425 CV joystick engine. Enjoy long and fast navigations in complete safety thanks to its ergonomic cabin. It has two spacious cabins and a huge door with an integrated swim ladder, which allows privileged access to the sea.

In addition, the aft bathtub conquers with its equipped kitchen: fridge, sink, gas stove or grill as an option. One more detail: for fishing lovers, the Cap Camarat 10.5 CC provides specific equipment, such as the rod holders on the roof or the transparent fish tank!

The French company’s 2023 catalog of novelties is completed with a new 17-meter sailboat that comes to reinforce the recent launches of the Jeanneau Yachts 60 and 65. With an ingenious and original design concept, the Jeanneau Yachts 55 gives a new approach to the cruiser, incredibly designed with the outside space in mind, guaranteeing full privacy to the navigator.

Yatchs 55 Jeanneau

Designed as a true private apartment, the interior area offers a unique layout that occupies the forward two-thirds of the vessel. Bright, refined and comfortable, the Jeanneau Yachts 55 offers two cabins with private bathrooms that can accommodate sailors in perfectly separated spaces, accessible from the deck by two different stairs.

Yatchs 55 Jeanneau

On the outside, the stern is dedicated to relaxation: two lounges on each side, U-shaped and L-shaped, both convertible into sunbathing areas, and a majestic water access through a huge platform that unfolds by means of a hydraulic cylinder. The bow accommodates the advanced dual-helm and also an outside table for charting, with GPS display and autopilot control. Everything is protected by the large wrap-around windshield and a hard hood that offers remarkable visibility.

Elegance & adrenaline with the New Jolly Prince 38 Sport Cabin

Imagine taking a sip from a glass of prosecco and enjoying some fresh summer fruits while surrounded by beautiful crystal clear waters in which you can take a swim to refresh yourself.

Or imagine being able to visit Lanzarote’s Playa del Papagayo arriving directly by sea at a cruising speed of 40 knots that will make your journey fast and exciting and then snorkeling while observing the coast’s beautiful seabed populated by a myriad of colorful fish. 

All this is possible simply by booking a private excursion with Fuertecharter!

Prince 38 Sport Cabin is undoubtedly one of the most elegant semi-rigid boats you can find in the port of Corralejo, but what makes it so special compared to other boats?

Its main features are the three Yamaha 300 V6 engines which allows us to reach a speed of 50 knots without stability problems.

Thanks to its very deep “V” hull, it can hold high cruising speeds even on rough seas.

The cabin excels in elegance and ergonomics.

In fact, Prince 38 SC offers a state of the art cruise.

We notice this when we look at the cabin which, thanks to an electrically operated table, that has three different position options: a sunbathing area, a dining area , as well as a more peaceful and relaxing area.

The three sofas are comfortable and safe in navigation thanks to high protective backrests.

All deck surfaces are lined with teak wood.

The bow is spacious, comfortable and offers seating for those who want to enjoy high speed with the ‘wind blowing in their face’.

The surrounding handrail and a passageway give us the freedom to move around safely whilst cruising.

Below deck there is a spacious cabin with a double bed and a separate bathroom with shower and various cabinets where you can store your things without the risk of them flying overboard!

These are just a few of the technical details of this incredible boat, but beyond that the New Jolly Prince 38 SC is a complete package to give you a unique and unforgettable experience.

This boat can perfectly accommodate up to 12 people.

The tour with Prince 38 SC offers the opportunity to visit the caves on the Lobos Island that would be unreachable otherwise.

And that’s not IT!

It’s possible to organise an unforgettable trip to Lanzarote, as well as a visit to La Graciosa Island.

Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, birthday, graduation or a hen/bachelorette party, this is the perfect present.

So, are you ready to come and join us to experience an emotionally fulfilling adventure?
Such moments full of emotion and adrenaline that will be unforgettalbe saling the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.

We’re waiting for you!

www.fuertcharter.com

Let’s discover together the marine fauna of Fuerteventura!

What is one of the biggest dreams of children?
Without a doubt, seeing dolphins!
Seeing them swimming freely in the unspoilt ocean is an experience that adults will never forget.



But how can you experience this unique and exciting adventure?
It’s easy! You can just buy a ticket for an excursion with Fuertecharter!





The tour starts by embarking from the port of Corralejo, and is designed for everyone to have fun, both adults and children.


The best sailing area for whale watching is the channel between Fuerteventura, Lanzarote and the island of Lobos.

 Most of the time we find them to the northwest of the island of Lobos, a couple of miles off the coast, with the Papagayo Beach of Lanzarote and the Great Beaches of Corralejo as a frame. Other times they can be found in Lanzarote, in the area in front of Playa Quemada, Puerto del Carmen or Puerto Calero; sometimes they can be found along the east coast of Fuerteventura, in front of the wonderful natural park of the Corralejo Dunes, at the foot of Montaña Rojas, known for its special red peak.

These unspoilt areas are home to many marine animals, such as dolphins, whales, pilot whales and sea turtles.

In fact, in the Canary Islands waters, you can spot 28 of the 87 types of cetaceans that exist in the world!
This certifies the high quality of the waters surrounding Fuerteventura.

It will be very easy to find a group of dolphins playing around the catamaran you are sailing on.


Seeing them is an incredible experience, but spotting a whale is truly a breathtaking moment.
 These majestic aquatic mammals swim in the waters around Fuerteventura between spring and summer.

There are many others that live in the depths in search of squid to hunt, and these cetaceans can reach up to 20 metres in length, but as we have said, they prefer to stay close to the seabed where they can remain undisturbed.

So which cetaceans can you spot on an excursion with Fuertecharter?


Bottlenose Dolphin: it is very common to see this dolphin in the Canary Islands, it measures between 2 and 4 metres, looks quite portly and likes to travel in groups, they have a lot of fun chasing our boat or swimming around!


Pilot Whale: Although it is called a whale, it actually belongs to the dolphin family and is also known as the Calderón Tropical, another common mammal in the Canary Islands. It can measure up to 5 metres in length.

Common dolphin: a very slender cetacean. It is characteristically coloured, with a dark grey dorsal area and a white ventral area; laterally it has light grey areas from head to tail. It measures up to 2.4 m in length.

Striped dolphin: The striped dolphin is similar in size and shape to several other dolphins that inhabit the same waters, however, their colouring makes them easy to distinguish in the sea. The underside or belly is white or pink. There are one or two dark blue bands running from the eye to the caudal fin.

Hammerhead shark: The most striking feature of all hammerhead shark species is the particular T-shaped head, with the eyes and nostrils located at the ends of the head, thanks to the side-to-side head movement as it swims, it can see everything around it and even behind it.

Sunfish: The body is flattened laterally and when the dorsal and ventral fins are extended, the fish is as long as it is tall.

Exocoetidae or Flying fish: Its most striking feature is the size of its unusually large pectoral fins, which allow it to fly and glide for distances of more than 50 metres.

Sperm whale: The largest toothed animal in existence, males can grow up to 20.5 metres long and weigh more than 50 tonnes.

Loggerhead turtle: known as Caretta Caretta, one of the smallest turtles in the ocean and can measure up to 120cm, it does not like to live too deep.

And if you don’t look enough, you can also see other aquatic animals such as the spotted dolphin, the rough-toothed dolphin, the black and grey pilot whale, the humpback whale and the Bryde’s whale. 

In addition, many birds can be sighted during our excursion. A very special one is the so-called Cory’s Shearwater, a type of bird that spends days without touching land in search of food. It plays an important role in the search for dolphins as it flies just above the school of bait and therefore helps us to find them.



And the experience doesn’t end here, because on this excursion we will also take you to relax in front of the island of Lobos, where you can sunbathe on our boat or do water activities such as snorkelling, sup or kayaking, and we will serve you a delicious paella, accompanied with drinks and fresh wine.

During the whole excursion we will take a multitude of free photos that you will be able to download on our website, to remember this magnificent experience forever!

Discover what’s new in the Deluxe Combo Family tour!

You might think that all boat excursions are the same, but we can assure you, that this is not the case.
That’s why we have decided to dedicate a blog article to the new features of the Deluxe Combo Family excursion with our Lagoon catamaran.

First of all, our catamaran is certified to sail up to 20 people, no longer just 12, and even if it sounds strange this peculiarity will make your excursion even more exclusive.
But let’s start from the beginning!
We will take you on the 4-hour ocean tour.

The day starts by meeting up with the crew of the catamaran at the harbour.
After the check-in at the Fuertecharter ticket office, you are welcome on board.
Shoes off! On the catamaran you walk barefoot to avoid slipping and preserve the boat floor. 

 Once we seat the captain starts explaining the planning of the tour.
After a few minutes, the first welcome drink arrives with a choice of sodas, wine or beer.
We are all already smiling, but the real beauty is yet to come, and it begins as soon as we leave the harbour and feel the wind blowing, the sailors set the sails and we are ready for the crossing towards the most beautiful island of the archipelago: the Lobos Island. Here we come!

The first stop is close to one of the most famous surf spots in Europe.
This wave is known for being one of the longest in the continent, and watching the surfers dancing on the ocean with the volcano La Caldera as the backdrop for their stunts, is a truly enchanting scene.

lobos island boat trip

After a sailing tour for discovering the beauty of the Lobos coast, we approach the harbour where the catamaran stops to moor. 

Do you remember I told you that this excursion is for a total of 20 people, and because of it the tour ends up to be more exclusive? 

The reason is that at this point we split into two groups of 10 people. 

The first group stays on the catamaran so that the participants can continue sunbathing or enjoy the water activities offered by the staff, including kayaking, stand-up puddling and an unforgettable moment of snorkelling among hundreds of fish in the beautiful turquoise waters of the island.
After that it comes the time of the famous Spanish PAELLA!
A moment of relaxation accompanied by typical Canarian food, cooked by our friends of La Lonja restaurant. 

 

The other group will land to Lobos Island with a speedboat for a guided excursion to discover its treasures.
This is the biggest change of all, as your tour will not only explore the surrounding of the island, but you will also go ashore getting to know its most precious corners.
You will be enchanted by the beauty and the authenticity of this place. 

To sum up, this is the most complete tour of Lobos Island: sea trip, excursion to the volcanic land, exclusive places, good food and certainly lots of smiles.

La Graciosa: A Treasure in the Atlantic Ocean

La Graciosa is the eighth island of the Canary Islands. Its population counts 700 people. It has 29 square kilometers of beautiful untouched beaches, turquoise waters, and a striking volcanic landscape.

 It is one of the few places in Europe without asphalted roads. This makes it a truly virgin island, and free from mass tourism, since the only way to get there is by the sea.

Where to moor in La Graciosa?

The only port available in La Graciosa is La Caleta del Sebo, located at the gateway to the island. Caleta de Sebo is the island capital and one of the only two towns that we can find on this little paradise. The other town is Pedro Barba.

Beaches

The beauty of its exotic and lonely beaches, captivates to a point of relaxation that is not easily achieved elsewhere. The most surprising beaches in La Graciosa that we recommend visiting are:

  • La Cocina. This is also known as Cala de Montaña Amarilla. From La Caleta de Sebo there are about 6 km of route.
  • La Francesa. A beach with spectacular, transparent and very calm waters. The high tide is perfect for snorkeling.
  • Playa del Salado. Along with La Francesa and La Cocina, it is a beach in the south coast where the water is very calm.
  • Las Conchas. It´s a beach located in the north of the island, with views of the islet of Montaña Clara. This coast can have a little stronger swell, for this reason, it is sometimes not available for a bath for several days.
  • La Laja. Located in the Caleta de Sebo town. It’s a very quiet beach,  surrounded by typical canarian white houses. It’s perfect for families with children.
  • Playa del Ámbar. This beach is located in the north of the island near the town Pedro Barba, it is exposed to the north wind. Therefore, its waters can be dangerous due to the waves and the strong currents.

Where to eat?

All the restaurants are found in Caleta de Sebo. They have wonderful views of Risco de Famara and are located on the first line of the sea.

You will be able to taste the typical Spanish meals with its classic fresh local fish, but also you will find some fast food places.

What can you do in La Graciosa?

La Graciosa has many activities to offer.

  • Bicycle rides. The “all terrain” bike rides are the best option on the island and all the routes are very well sign-posted. There are several places where you can rent a bike in Caleta del Sebo.
  • Boat travel. If you have a boat you can sail around its coast and appreciate Montaña Clara, Alegranza, Roque del Infierno, Montaña Amarilla and Playa de la Cocina.
  • Diving. The Chinijo archipelago has the greatest marine diversity of all the Canary Islands. Among fauna and flora there are up to 774 recognized species. You can also find caves and tunnels that will allow you to discover the underwater rock formations that come from volcanic eruptions.
  • Trekking. As La Graciosa is a small island, you can explore it by foot. The trails lead us to untouched beaches and spectacular viewpoints. Remember to bring enough water and food with you, as there are no shops or beach bars along the island. You can only find them in the two main towns.

Live the best experience in La Graciosa

If you did not know about this spectacular paradise, it is the time to check it out. La Graciosa will offer you a unique, unforgettable moments. Look no further! It is the best vacation plan! Enjoy all that this treasure of the ocean can offer you. You will live the best experience.

Welcome to Fuerteventura!

Fuerteventura is a paradise for “wind and wave” water sports. The oldest island of Canarian archipelago stands out for its great beaches with crystal water, wonderful natural parks with routes for hiking and its amazing underwater world.

The kindness and smiles of its habitants are one of the characteristics of the Majorera culture, known also for the production of the best goat cheeses in the world. 

A good climate on the island during all year and its warm waters make it a perfect and unique touristic destination. It is the eternal spring island, where the temperature is perfect throughout the year.

Fuerteventura is a privileged destination with its painteresque Fishermans villages, infinite deserts and spectacular landscapes.

We therefore present you the essence of Fuerteventura and the places that you cannot miss during your stay.

Fuerteventura: Corralejo- What to see? 

If you arrive in Fuerteventura with a boat, we recommend anchoring in the Port of Corralejo: a very dynamic town, known for its great beaches, sports and good atmosphere, both during the day and at night.

You can walk through its streets or by the sea enjoying its flavors and contemplating the views. Just 5 km from the town are the famous Corralejo Dunes, where you can enjoy this immense natural landscape.

The old town has a great selection of restaurants, where at night you can enjoy live music, sitting comfortably in one of them.  Between the places that are worth visiting are:

  • Dunas de Corralejo Natural Park 
  • Burro Beach 
  • Moro Beach
  • Old Town of Corralejo
  • Popcorn Beach (Sunset Beach)
  • Volcano Route

• Off road on north shore

Beaches in Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is well known for its beaches. Each one of them is unique. In the north of the island, we can highlight:

Popcorn Beach (Sunset Beach in Corralejo)

This wonderful beach, instead of sand, has fossils of white algae that look like popcorn. If you are going to visit this beach, we ask you to be satisfied with just looking and touching this wonder, and do not take it with you as a souvenir; as this brings unwanted consequences to the natural environment.

Grandes Playas of Corralejo

It has beaches that are almost 3.5 kilometers long, creating a group known as Grandes Playas. Among them, we can highlight:

Flag Beach. Perfect place to practice kitesurfing.

• La Entubadera. Beach for surfing.

Bajo Negro beach. Beach located behind the hotels. It is well sheltered from the wind and waves; perfect to enjoy a day with the family.

Cotillo

If we move to the east coast of the island, we have another very cozy town called Cotillo. There we can find:

Lakes of Cotillo. Lagoons that form at high tide. Unlike other beaches, the se ones are generally very quiet.

  • Piedra Playa. An impressive beach to which we descend from a Cliff.

Sotavento

This amazing beach is known as the windsurf paradise and it  is one of the most famous beach worldwide to practice this sport. It is  here where the World Cup of windsurf and kitesurf are celebrated.

Cofete

 

For many it is the most beautiful beach on the island. It is located in the extreme south, on the Jandía peninsula. Getting there requires a bit of determination, but the effort will be rewarded by the nature which is so wild that it leaves you speechless. The sandy area, framed by majestic mountains, stretches as far as the eye can see and has a totally unspoiled and uncontaminated appearance. A paradisiacal and impressive beach that you can’t miss.

Gastronomy

Fuerteventura is a place of fishing tradition; it is the place where the richest fresh fish is obtained. The best known are viejas, breams, cabrillas, groupers, octopus or moray eel.

On the other hand, majorero goat meats are very popular and, of course, cheeses and yogurts made with goat’s milk.

These cheeses are one of the most valued products of Canarian gastronomy. Since 1996 it has a designation of origin.

Walking trails

Fuerteventura is a paradise for hiking lovers. If you are staying in the north of the island, we recommend a circular route that passes next to Montaña Colorada and leads us to the crater of the Calderón Hondo Volcano. The hike is very easy and  it offers incredible views.

As you can see, Fuerteventura is a paradise, not only because of its beaches, but also because of its extensive gastronomy and wonderful routes. What are you  for waiting to visit us?

What to do in Lobos? Experience with Water Taxi

From our port, in just ten minutes, we can go to Isla de Lobos. This beautiful island is situated just 2km from Fuerteventura. Nevertheless, we are curious to know, what can be done on this islet?

The route

There we can see the east coast of Fuerteventura, with its dunes, great beaches and volcanoes in the background. The color of the water is spectacular.

We follow the path and arrive at the Isla de Lobos Interpretation Center. It is an excellent starting point for the excursion. There we can discover the history of this islet. We do not count any more so that you can discover it on your own.

From the Interpretation Center we turn left and thus we can begin the circular path that will take us to all the important points of the islet. We arrive at Playa de la Concha or La Caleta. It is a spectacular beach with white sand and completely protected by the waves.

The first stop and the next destination

Here we can stop to take a bath, before going to Montaña la Caldera. If you climb this ancient volcano, with a little more than 100 meters high, you will have spectacular views of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.

Next destination: The Punta Martiño Lighthouse. This lighthouse was officially inaugurated on February 7, 1905. In its creation, basalt stones were used, carried on the back of camels, in wafers and on Majorero donkeys. 

The Punta Martiño Lighthouse

Going down the east coast we pass through Lagunitas. There we can contemplate the natural values ​​of the island: saladares, jables de los hornitos, tabaibales del malpaís and the biodiversity of the vegetation.

Arrecife is the Capital of Lanzarote since the second half of the 19th century. It has become the administrative and commercial center of the island.

Then we go to the Marina de Arrecife, a marina for yachts and cruises, with restaurants, bars and trendy shops. There you will enjoy spectacular international food!

Arrecife offers us a lot of culture and history. We can find there among others: The Historic Quarter, the Castillo de San Gabriel and the International Museum of Contemporary Art. This is the only city we visited during our cruise.

Day 2 Lobos Cruise – Lanzarote – La Graciosa: La Graciosa Island

Now we leave from the port of Arrecife towards the north of Lanzarote, contemplating its rocky coast. After having passed the spectacular Risco de Famara, just beyond Punta Fariones, a pod of dolphins welcomes us just at the moment when we begin to see La Graciosa. What a happiness to be able to see them in their natural environment!

Dolphins

The coast of Lanzarote is very rich in marine fauna. With a little luck you can see a sperm whale or a whale during the tour. As if the welcome from the dolphins was not enough, the buzzer begins to sound. The result is a sierra fish, which we will have for dinner tonight!

Finally, we cross the last section called El Río that is between Lanzarote and La Graciosa.

La Graciosa is known as the Eighth Island of the 7 Canary Islands. Only in 2018 was it recognized as such. With its white houses and sandy streets, it has a population of 700 people. It is one of the few places in Europe where roads are not yet built. This makes the island still virgin, and free of mass tourism.

Direction: La Graciosa

La Graciosa surprises us with its beauty, nature and silence.

The beauty of its exotic and solitary beaches captivates to a point of relaxation that is not easily achieved elsewhere.

Day 3 Lobos Cruise – Lanzarote – La Graciosa: Islet of Lobos

On the third day our cruise arrives at the islet of Lobos. Named for the large number of sea lions that once populated its shores. It is a beauty of volcanic nature, a natural space for birds and other animals on the island.

Then we landed at the Lobos anchorage to spend our last night of the cruise. The water here is crystal clear and shallow, making it easy to see the seabed.

Sunrise in Isla de Lobos

In the morning we have breakfast with a wonderful sunrise and we head back to the port of Corralejo. It is a short journey: about 15 – 20 minutes.

Enjoy 3 wonderful days on a cruise

It has been a wonderful 3 days. But as they say “all good things come to an end soon.” Until next time!
