Catamaran yacht charter: the perfect vacation ?

26 June 2022

Large sailing or motor catamarans offer up to 50/60% more space than motor or sailing yachts of the same overall
length: just take a look at the following pictures of the Sunreef 80ft. In addition, one of the great advantages of a catamaran over a monohull is its inherent stability. Plenty of outside living space and luxurious interiors, together with a good range of water toys, make them very popular with charter guests. Learn more about the different types of catamaran available for charter, from Maxi luxury multihull to fast Power cat. Discover the best fit to explore the ocean.

Why charter a catamaran ?

  • The best choice for those who enjoy sailing but are prone to seasickness and those travelling with children.
  • Comfort at sea: catamarans don’t heel and are equipped with diesel engines when there is no wind, giving your guests more flexibility.
  • Cost: Sailing catamarans have low fuel consumption due to the combination of sails and diesel engines.
  • The shallow draft of catamarans allows them to explore remote inlets and visit more secluded bays where most boat can’t go.

For those considering buying or founding their own yacht, a catamaran boat rental is the perfect way to get a taste of what’s out there. With a variety of styles and sizes, yacht charters offer the chance to try out different types of yacht and find the perfect one for your needs.

What type of catamaran?

There are many different types of catamaran available for charter around the world, but which one is right for you?

Which catamaran suits your needs?

Here is a quick guide to the different types available and the different terminology used.

Sunreef sailig super catMany of the newer large catamarans have a spacious flybridge with sun loungers, an alfresco dining area with bar and sometimes even a jacuzzi. The main saloon and cockpit are all on one level, above the waterline, making life on board much more enjoyable, as well as the view. The good news is that there’s a catamaran for everyone: fast and fun (Outremer), comfortable and stylish (Sunreef 80), or power cat that combines unrivalled living space with reliable performance and outstanding autonomy.

Luxury power cat for charterLarge power catamarans are multihull yachts designed for long cruising in ultimate comfort. They take luxury and seaworthiness to a new level, combining the enhanced stability at anchor and underway of multihulls with the performance of modern motor yachts, often with lower fuel consumption and much more spacious accommodation.
Advice: book well in advance as the number of power catamarans available for charter is limited.
