Generally speaking, catamarans provide much more stability which is a great plus in case you are about to spend your holiday with kids, knowing that little fellows won’t ‘stay in place’ during the charter period. Food and drinks roll out from a table? Definitely not on a catamaran. Passing from port to starboard can be freely done on catamarans. Sustainable design of a catamaran (constructed with 2 wide hulls) makes you feel safe and sound during the charter holiday.
COMFORT AND SPACIOUSNESS
Assuming that you prefer having as much as comfort as you can during your voyage – catamarans are definitely leaders here. Wide deck for taking a sunbath, separated cockpit area, private skipper cabin in the bow and a large net for a relax are just one of things to mention. Galley has much more space than any type of monohull for example, as well as the really spacious interior. As mentioned above, private skipper cabin or crew cabins in the bow, on the large catamarans are usually equipped with toilet or bathroom, so the guests’s privacy is guaranteed.
Let’s take a look on the interesting photo below:

SPEED AND MANOEUVRING
Due to their design and hulls, which are less immersed in the water, catamarans are usually faster about 20-30% than the monohulls of the same lenght (when going downwind). When it comes to docking and manoeuvring, catamarans powered with two engines enable captain to easily rotate a yacht at one point (single position), which is a key feature in manoeuvring the yacht in tight places, small marinas and bays.
UTTER LUXURY WITH CREWED CATAMARANS
Waking up in the secret coves and bays, starting a day with a wealthy breakfast, taking a swim or some sunbathing on the large net on the bow seems like a perfect scenery? That appears to be a normal day on the luxury catamarans with crew. Guest that rent this type of a catamaran have a feeling they are on a ‘floating hotel’, since the interior comfort of the crewed catamarans exceeds some hotel or apartment.
With the crew on board the possibilities are endless. What’s better than having your friends or family on the large bow net, chilling and enjoying the perfect sunset with some special cocktails made just for you while sailing over the Adriatic Sea? The crew is there to maximise your sailing experience, so the luxury crewed catamaran ensures carefree holidays for you and your family or friends.
BEST LOCATIONS AND HIDDEN GEMS IN CROATIA
