Caribbean Catamaran Sailing Vacations
In the yacht charter industry catamarans have become very popular due to their stability, comfort and space. A catamaran is a multi-hulled sailing yacht consisting of two parallel hulls of equal size. Most yacht charter enthusiasts prefer the catamaran to mono-hull yachts as they do not heel over when sailing.
There are many types of catamarans manufactured by different companies. The major manufactures and their types are listed below.
- Alliaura Marine (Privilège)
- Fountaine Pajot (Belize, Lavezzi, Mahé, Bahia)
- Robertson and Caine (Leopard)
- St. Francis Marine
- Voyage Catamarans
Today (2013) the most requested type of catamaran by charter guests is the Flybridge catamaran. The unique feature of this type of catamaran is that there is a extra seating/lounge area above the cockpit where guest yacht hang out for cocktails and get a better view of their surroundings.
Another unique feature of most catamarans is their low draught (draft). This means that most catamarans can anchor or maneuver in very shallow waters that sailing yachts and power yacht cannot venture. On a Caribbean catamaran charter, for example, our guests may be able to visit secret, hard to reach anchorages that are not accessible to other type of yachts.
