The sleek lines of beautiful cruising yachts and motorboats moored in exclusive marinas, such as Mallorca, Split, or Mykonos, are a real sight to behold at any time of year. What's more, the thought of taking a skippered boat trip for a few days or arranging a yacht charter appeals to more and more people, from party loving millennials to families with young children, or groups of friends planning their adventure trip of a lifetime. There's truly something romantic about life aboard and the opportunities it offers to explore the entire coastline of any holiday destination. So, if you are considering a boat holiday liveaboard for your next holiday, this Zizoo guide to catamaran charter may persuade you further!
A catamaran is a wide-beamed boat, characterised by its two hulls. These hulls ensure the boats have greater levels of stability than other types of boats and also help increase the speeds that can be attained, due to a reduction in the amounts of propulsion needed. There are two main types of catamaran, Pontoon and SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull). The former is slightly smaller and more compact, while the latter is a large boat and also an ideal option to sail any potentially turbulent seas. Cruiser style catamarans often comfortably accommodate up to 12 people, and are likely to feature a large amount of deck space between the two hulls which means there is plenty of room for sunbathing and lounging on board the boat. Motor catamarans add an additional comfort to the cruising experience as they provide more freedom than sailboats when it comes to getting to a destination at a chosen speed. Lagoon, Fountaine Pajot and Bali are some of the most renowned catmaran brands.
The Zizoo website is the ideal solution for sourcing the best catamaran for your next holiday. You can take all the time needed to browse our line-up of luxury catamarans, whether you want to hire a catamaran and skipper it yourselves, or would prefer a skippered catamaran holiday. It's not always essential to have sailing experience prior to renting out a catamaran for your holiday, however, you would need to have someone on board with you with a proper boating license and enough confidence to drive a fairly large boat, as catamarans are. If you would prefer a more laidback approach, choosing a catamaran with skipper and/or crew can ease your mind and it also means you have far more leisure time to enjoy your favourite ocean activities, such such snorkelling, swimming, and sunbathing, as well as exploring the islands you visit.
You'll find different boat charter companies offer a variety of amenities in their catamarans, this can include stand-up paddle boards (SUP), kayaks, diving and snorkelling gear, a small boat to make it easy to visit remote shores, fishing equipment etc. Your catamaran will be fitted with all mod cons, and could have up to six cabins to accommodate groups of up to 12 people.
