Catamarans make a special type of sailboats. They consist of two connected hulls; considering their construction they are more stabile and spacious than monohulls. Catamarans are roomy inside and outside on decks. They are relatively low and have swimming ladder which makes them easily reachable, and in addition to that they allow good visibility and bring plenty of natural light in.
Catamarans are ideal choice for families and larger groups, and they are safer for small children and yachtsmen beginners than monohulls.
Considering their wide and spacious interior there is little chance of feeling squeezed in or claustrophobic.
Another good thing about their layout is a separate skipper cabin, which is accessible through saloon but directly from the deck also. Not all models have this option, but regardless of that, you will still have enough of your private space on a catamaran.
Compared to monohulls, they are also easier to navigate and don’t require any special experience. However, if you are not certain of your skills, we strongly recommend hiring a skipper.
Catamarans are a good choice for those with little or no experience on board, as well as for those more experienced sailors looking for comfort and space.
