Ocean Cruising Catamarans

Ocean Cruising Catamarans


Ocean cruising catamarans are ideal for long distance journeys at sea. The space available on such boats is perfect for bringing heavy materials such as a watermaker, heater, dive compressor or washing machine. And with two hulls, the stability provides more comfort to the passengers making these boats perfect for families.

Flybridge Cruising Catamarans

Flybridge Cruising Catamarans


Flybridge cruising catamarans are sail or motor boats with an arrangement of the upper platform as a second steering cockpit or as a comfort area. This kind of lay-out is perfect for charter purposes as it provides more living space, and it separates the "sailing" area from the rest of the boat. Furthermore, it allow the skipper to have a perfect point of view over the whole craft.

Recreational Catamaran

Recreational Catamaran


On sunny beaches we often see sport or recreational catamarans. These are multihulls under 16 feet, with a reduced sail-area and mostly made in polyethylene. They are easy to sail with and suitable for up to 4 people. All of these qualities make this type of catamaran perfect for learning purposes (ie: sailing schools) and for rental activities.
