A catamaran is a multi-hulled vessel, designed with at least two parallel hulls of equal size, which offers exceptional stability. The wide beam affords an element of roominess and space that most monohulls cannot. The word Catamaran is derived from the word “kattumaram”, meaning “logs tied together”.

Power or motor yachts are fast! These boats are perfect for island hopping and multi-stop day trips. Power catamarans offer spacious interiors but less romminess on deck. Power catamarans, although not as quick as a power boat, are still faster than a traditional sailing catamaran and has the advantage of cruising in windless conditions.

How much does it cost to charter a yacht?
It is not a straightforward answer; however, the factors that could influence price includes the size of the boat (although older larger vessels can be secured at more affordable rates), the time of year, the location, whether the vessel is crewed or not and whether you are considering a monohull or a catamaran. Crewed catamarans typically publish weekly rates that range from around USD 12,000 for a 36ft vessel to around USD 65, 000 for a 60ft – 70ft vessel.
On the other end of the scale, USD 123,000 per week would secure you a +- 200ft vessel on our site. Each vessel offers its own unique flair, luxury and set of services that include fine dining, through to specialty onboard facilities.
It is important to take into account the additional extras like meals ashore and crew gratuity (up to 20% in the Caribbean and around 10% in the Med). Crew work hard and tend to your every need and your safety; tip them well and in accordance with the service you receive. So, when considering your budget, bear this in mind.
