Stable, spacious, with plenty of room for the extended family or large group of friends, catamarans are in their element for charters in the Caribbean, South Pacific and Mediterranean. In fact, judging from feedback of many seasoned charter guests, once you’ve tried multihulls – power or sail – nothing else will do!
Catamarans have become very high-tech, offering all the space and comfort with some performance elements. Those in the know agree, the liveaboard comfort on a luxury cat is superior and more enjoyable from the traditional monohull, providing more room to spread out, entertain, separate accommodation for kids and parents in each hull, plus plenty of room for crew.
In the Caribbean, Christmas and New Year charters are frequently booked a year in advance because of the demand. They are brilliant for exploring cruising grounds and accessing remote places because they have an extremely low draft and can be moored a short tender trip, swim or 'wade'to the shore.
Luxury sailing cats that cruise the Caribbean, such as MISS KIRSTY, are so popular, they are booked well in advance in the Caribbean, particularly between December and April when Americans and Europeans are fleeing the chills of winter and seeking sunshine and warm hospitality.
There are many options the worldover, but here are some Multihull standouts as nominated by the first-hand experiences of the charter experts at Luxury Charter Group:
