“We tried to make the most of it, but it was far from ideal”

Hey Grigory, thanks for asking. The boat was not in good condition. For example, there were no mooring, deck or motoring lights, so we feared a boat would hit us while we slept, and were not complying with the law while sailing at night. The anchor w…

Some tips for catamaran charter

Some tips for catamaran charter

Catamaran charter is great for long trips with children. Multihull vessels provide more space, privacy, and different amenities than a monohull yacht. Taking a catamaran for rent means that more likely you will receive yacht equipped with air conditioning, fridge, extra heads, showers and other facilities, yacht that can carry on board an impressive supplies of fuel and water. Obviously, a multihull yacht provides more space, so renting a catamaran is more suitable for the Caribbean, South East Asia, Greece - areas where anchorage and moorings are more common (rather than berths in marinas, in Mediterranean), and therefore there is no need to look for a berth and overpay for it size.

Those who prefer to charter sailing catamaran noted that its operation requires much less effort and concentration. This is important when you rent a yacht for vacation, not exercising. Catamarans have shallow draft and can approach directly to the beach. Sailing catamaran has good maneuverability (thanks to the presence of two engines) and requires no experienced crew. It is also much more stable than monohull yachts, which has a positive effect on safety and comfort.

Sailing catamaran design has its drawbacks: low efficiency at low speeds (due to greater wet area of the vessel), the difficulty of sailing upwind, increased tension on mast and hulls connection. The latter problem today is practically solved by the use of durable modern materials.


Catamarans can be divided into sports and cruising, among which there are elegant and high-speed sports ones - such as, catamaran from one of the the famous French shipyard Catana, famous for it’s perfect design and quality of finishes. Other well-known catamaran brands are Lagoon, Fountain Pajot, Corsair, CraigCat, Nautitech, Privilege, Megayacht Catamarans; each has it’s specific features.


Lagoon catamarans are focused on comfort providing an owner with all advantages of a large yacht without any downfalls. However, in terms of sailing performance, seaworthiness they concede to «Catana» catamaran, which is more difficult to operate and less spacious. Luxury catamarans Fountain Pajot – are made for luxury sailing vacations, but on the other hand, thanks to its keel design, can develop a decent speed.
