Combining the decadent roominess of a motoryacht with the thrill and spirit of sailing, a luxury sailing catamaran may just be the ideal option if you are new to sailing.
A word of warning though: after trying catamarans out, you may just find yourself wedded for life!
Here are a few of the reasons why catamarans make for such a great charter yacht, as well as why modern luxury catamarans like S/Y LA GATTA and CHE are making a splash in the superyacht charter world.
Let’s be brutally honest. Catamarans have often been overlooked in the superyacht world. But things are changing, fast —with stunning modern charter catamarans like S/Y Gatta and S/Y Che in the charter fleet, offering all the superyacht luxuries on top of the traditional benefits of stable, beamy, catamarans.
23m S/Y La Gatta is the perfect example of the modern luxury catamaran, with glamorous superyacht features including a beach club, flybridge jacuzzi and bar, and a flawless contemporary interior by Nauta Design. The enormous 11m beam creates palatial living spaces, and LA GATTA accommodates eight guests in four cabins, including a king-sized master suite with a drop-down private balcony. This charter catamaran runs with four professional crew, and carries a phenomenal fleet of watertoys including a Williams jet tender, sublue Seabow underwater scooters, e-foils, and electric bikes and scooters for shore adventures.
At 34m, S/Y Che is one of the largest charter catamarans in the world and offers a stunning combination of luxury and sailing performance, with a top racing speed of 20 knots. This state-of-the-art catamaran offers the ultimate in superyacht living, with a refined modern interior of bamboo timber offset with dove-grey upholstery and crisp white fabrics. The cat’s 12.5m beam creates space at every turn, including a vast 105sqm cockpit. Everything about this charter catamaran is state of the art, from her navigation systems to the Bose sound system and the gleaming stainless galley. CHE accommodates up to eight guests in four cabins comprising three doubles and one twin, carries a large range of watertoys, and runs with 6 active crew.
Catamarans have so many advantages, and they’re getting better all the time. You might consider chartering a luxury catamaran to kickstart your chartering journey. But you might also find the type of vessel you want to charter forever!
