Behind a great company, there is always a great past

AHaving navigated the world's oceans, Michael Leifheit, enchanted by Ibiza’s purity and beauty, chose to call the island home.

Ibiza yachting

Michael founded Coral Yachting in the Marina de Ibiza Nueva (present Marina Ibiza). The company’s first office was none other that Michael’s own sailboat ‘Mufty’, a Maurice Tivent 43, where his dream to continue his life’s devotion to sailing began.

Yacht charter in Ibiza

Michael met Salvador Valero (now his partner). Salvador’s experience sailing the world’s oceans as a master mariner, his personal charisma and his knowledge of maritime law, provided for an extraordinary partnership.

Yacht charter in Formentera

Following the construction of the port at Marina Botafoch, Salvador and Michael decided to establish an office in view of ever increasing demands for nautical tourism by those falling in love with Ibiza’s singular beauty.

The partners decided to establish Coral Marine, a company dedicated to the mooring and resupplying of ships coming to the island. At this time, Salvador’s own daughters began working at the company during the summer months alongside their studies in law.

Coral Yachting

Coral Yachting aquired a workshop in Marina Botafoch where repairs could be performed. They also opened a laundrymat to provide laundry services to the marina’s ships.
