Why rent catamaran instead of sailing yacht?
Catamarans are very popular for sailing holidays in Greece. Besides an attractive design, these yachts provide safe sailing and spacious and comfortable rooms.
There is more space on deck and inside the catamaran than in a monohull. The deck is stable and spacious with no steps between inside and outside. You can anchor in shallow bays or close to the shore due to a small draught of a catamaran.
This yacht type is convenient for all who feel uncertain on board and are a bit afraid of sailing. Catamarans do not heel a lot and are pretty stable boats. This will certainly help in avoiding seasickness or preventing fears.
Catamarans also provide more privacy, since the sleeping accommodations, heads and showers are totally separate, located in each hull and in opposite corners. It could be difficult to find a place for berthing in ports because of the boat size, specially in the crowded ones during the high season period. However, you can always find a safe anchorage in one of numerous beautiful bays of Greece.
Since these boats have become pretty popular, it is easier to find a catamaran available during the high season if you send a request much earlier. This way you might even get a chance to choose among different types of catamarans. These are not as numerous as monohulls, that's why catamarans get chartered pretty soon.
