What does a crewed catamaran yacht charter mean?
A catamaran has multiple hulls instead of a single one. Catamarans were originally designed as fishing boats, even though their use and importance have become more significant since then. Modern catamarans include fast sailing ones that are suitable for more open areas where a greater sailing speed is necessary. They are also very popular because of their great stability, large interior space and safety. This type of holiday is actually nothing, but a swimming hotel, where you and your family or your partner are the only guests. You have nothing to do, but relax, while the crew will fulfil all your wishes. A professional captain will navigate the boat on a route that you have determined.
How does crewed catamaran yacht charter work?
You can enjoy your holiday on catamarans with all-inclusive service and a friendly and professional crew who work on making your trip relaxing and enjoyable. Going on holiday with a crew makes it possible for you to relax fully. The most superb thing about it is that you don’t have to worry about the yacht’s operation, because there you have the crew taking care of it. This is nothing else, but luxury sailing that focuses on comfort, location and relaxation in a beautiful environment. Forget about too busy ocean liners and rather imagine sailing with a luxury sailing boat or a mega-yacht in the open sea. There is no need for experience, all you need is to be committed to this fantastic leisure time.
Who can it be recommended to?
Catamarans are ideal for those planning to go on a leisure trip and would prefer fast travel on the sea. Modern catamarans include fast sailing ones that are suitable for more open areas where a greater sailing speed is necessary. Catamarans provide room, stability and simple handling. They slide on the water surface very smoothly and move with the help of the wind caught in the sails. Modern catamarans have all the facilities of yachts, including the large cabins, showers, toilets and other equipment that serves our comfort.
A crewed motor yacht charter holiday is a wonderful choice both individually and for couples and families. You can have great adventures through sea explorations and you can gain experiences for life through a program or city sight. This type of sailing is a really ideal choice for sea lovers who want quality holidays. You can be an experienced sailor, but you also deserve calm and relaxation! Let others take the direction, sit back and enjoy the rhythm of waves. Besides that, also those who can give it a try who are just learning about boats because the crew will surely take care of everything.
Types of catamarans:
Catamarans are available in several designs and sizes. Their size may vary, from 14 ft (4.5 m) to 100 ft (30.5 m) long models. Catamarans include sea cruisers with a weather deck, boats with cabins, etc. Besides the two hulls, they have a mast and, depending on the size, one or two sails. It may be a surprising fact that catamarans are considered standard boats rather than sailboats.
These boats are referred to as luxury catamarans or catamaran ferries. They provide the best service and luxury for passengers. The additional motors make these boats even more attractive for people. Having a shorter journey time, these ferries are ideal for passengers who want to spend more time in a city’s port. It must be noted, however, that luxurious catamarans only function within the country and not internationally. Catamaran cruisers offer all the best features of motor yachts. The Stena Voyager on the Irish Sea and the American Victoria Clipper IV are two of the most popular cruisers.
Another type is the sailing catamaran. They are mostly used for recreational purposes. These boats are suitable for those striving to experience what marine life is like or who would like to spend a pleasant day on the sea. They usually do not have an interior, such as a cabin, where passengers can stay. The speed of the sailing catamarans can reach up to 300 nautical miles. They have a great advantage compared to their motorized counterparts: they can go faster and are lighter. Still, they are slower when turning. These boats have two motors, one in each hull. These motors can come really handy in still air. Sailing catamarans were first presented in Europe, and then they became popular in every part of the world.
