Mission Statement

What is our motivation?

We are in the business of creating unique experiences. Travelling means, drawing on experiences while keeping your wanderlust alive – the mental souvenirs and stories collected are your personal treasure. We at LAVA CHARTER prepare those moments for you – just take them with you.

We are whom we strive to be!

LAVA CHARTER was established in 2015 simply out of a passion for Sailing. Those wind & water enthusiasts, our clients on the one hand and the team on the other – make us stronger and let us grow. These are the foundations upon which our vision, mission and values are floating. Adventurers, Families, Friends, Explorers or Sailing Pro´s will all find their Utopia – you decide whom you want to be.LAVA CHARTER is a specialist around the 8 islands of eternal spring, why? Because we listen, adapt, and develop together with our customers and locals.

The journey is the reward!

To create a pleasant and inspiring atmosphere for travelers takes a lot of hard work. But as Experience Designers & Happiness Managers this is our nature – CHALLENGE ACCEPTED – ALL HANDS ON DECK. Meeting returning and satisfied clients on equal footing – is our peace of mind.

Our Team

Our Team could not be more different. This is not only fun, but is above all the foundation for efficiency and team spirit. You can find everything at LAVA CHARTER except strict hierarchy. Each team member introduces his or her very own strengths and individualism at its best. You will sense this close cooperation immediately.


Base Manager

Jan has been active in the chartering industry for more than 10 years as a skipper & team builder. The friendly inhabitants and the pleasant climate finally took him to Lanzarote, where he has been actively supporting the Lava Charter team since January 2017 as a base manager. Jan brings fresh air to the team and, together with his colleagues, pursues the same goal: to drive Lava Charter as canary experts ever further and to bring his expertise to the Canary Island market.

Joerg “Joschi”

1st Special Sails Agent

The “multitool” at Lava is Joschi. After 27 years with one of the largest automobile manufacturers in Germany, a change of scenery was necessary. So why not to where you spend your holiday? Lanzarote. And what do you do there? Depending on what happens. At the beginning, the Cologne youngster folds out the paint bucket and tassel from the repairer and tops himself out artistically when painting and painting. White on white is “hidden art”. Out of love for his holiday on the water, he soon replaces brushes and paint with wrenches, keyboards and scrubbers in our harbour. Joschi helps where he can. No matter if inventory, problems with the telephone system or rust spots on the stainless steel of the yachts. There is also an open ear for coffee at any time. Always according to the slogan “Here you will be helped”, thanks for being on board.


Office Administration

Valentina supports us in our office in Arrecife. Valentina was born in Italy and studied tourism. She speaks Italian, Spanish and English. She takes care of our guests, partners and agencies in all languages. Her friendly and professional manner is very much appreciated by our team. Valentina has already done a few sailing trips and is enthusiastic about sailing. Together with the Lava Charter team, she is looking forward to expanding her knowledge of sailing.



David is a diving enthusiast and has a knack for cleanliness and technology. Together with our all-rounder Joschi, he ensures that the boats remain in top condition and are ready for use.
