LIVING LIFE IN MALLORCA

 

Former teacher Tina Mauer set up On Water in Mallorca to share her passion for life on the water.

 

For Tina Mauer, it was the discovery of Axopar at the Palma Boat Show in 2016 that changed everything.

After a meeting with the German dealer Boote Polch, the purchase of an Axopar 28 TT and her sea school business soon followed. “The 28TT is the ideal boat for the two sides of our business,” says Tina.

"For the charter part we needed an open boat with lots of sunbathing space, a toilet and storage for water toys that was fast and easy to handle. For the sea school the walkaround decks and ease of handling at slow speed come in very handy."

The boat is worked hard and well cared for.

The 28’s single 350hp Mercury outboard has racked up 1,300 hours and aside from regular servicing and oil changes it has required no extra maintenance whatsoever.

In quieter moments, Tina and her partner Tom do occasionally find time to do some boating of their own and enjoy the stunning scenery that the Mallorcan coast has to offer.

In low season, Tina and Tom head out to enjoy the beautiful bays of Mallorca.

There is no wonder why Tom and Tina likes to spend time in these sceneries.

“Any boating we do is after the high season,” Tina explains.

“When we do take the boat out we mostly just go for a quick blast to a beautiful bay and hop into the crystal clear water.” This is the essence of what makes the 28 so well suited to these waters, the comfort with which it cruises at over 30 knots, the feeling of safety on board and how easy it is to handle.

Tina adds, “I studied as a teacher and have always liked to see people learn and progress. We like to bring more people on to the water so that they can enjoy what we enjoy most."
