Luxury Yacht charter is an exceptional, if not the very best way to enjoy your well deserved vacation. Almost nothing beats the serenity and good feeling you get to enjoy at anchor, just before the sunset with lunch settling down and sipping your favourite drink, watching amazing scenery of the bay you have found for yourself and your loved ones and just after a challenging day at the water. This feeling is usually best achieved after racing event or actively sailing, but equally after hours of snorkelling, jet skiing, diving or surfing. How you get there is what matters quite often too.
Advantages of Power catamarans
Power catamarans are increasingly popular for their stability and speed of cruising, but also due to space on offer, facilities on board and water toys their carry. A number of SUP’s, canoes, underwater scooters, even a jet ski and powerful superyacht tender find their space in the storage of an 80ft super power catamaran easily. NEW Sunreef 70 power (2023) based in Croatia, offers almost 300m2 of living space in highest quality of interior design environment and expansive outdoor space, all created for maximum of 8 guests. Water toys extravaganza, as described by owner is on board free to use and 4 professional crew members, including a chef, captain and professional stewardess as well as deckhand engineer take care of all aspects of someone’s sailing holiday. Thus, apart from 2x seabobs with fast charging, e-foil, jet ski, towables, wakeboard, 2x SUP, 2xTwo-seater kayaks, snorkelling gear, floating mats, beach games and water skis for both adults and children, yacht charter guests on this supercat will also enjoy using a 100hp Rib Turbojet Williams tender.
This is bettered only by a few other power catamarans on the charter market, namely the other Sunreef 70 power based in Greece, which also carries yoga mats, dumbbells and spinning bicycle for extra fitness workouts on board or even more luxurious Sunreef 80 power which are usually based in the BVI’s in the Caribbean, the Bahamas or Florida or in most cases when it comes to Mediterranean, in the Greek Cyclades area. Other boats in this 80ft supercat range include Lagoon 78 power and most recent additions in this range from French shipyard Fountain Pajot. Super catamarans can be chartered in Puerto Rico, Italy and the Balearics too amongst other yachting destinations by now. Frenchwest, a Lagoon 78 power based in the Windward island of Saint Martin throughout the year is one of the prime examples with her available from 55,000 US$’s per week in the Summer months and
High-End super power catamarans
The stability to conquer waves and rougher seas and additional power to escape oncoming weather systems and reach next destination faster than on a sailing catamaran are main advantages of power catamarans. They can also be compared to some prestigious motor yachts from Sunseeker, Azimut or Ferretti, in particular in terms of space and amenities. This gives power catamarans not only an advantage, but also value both in terms of sales price in case you are considering to buy a new luxury power catamaran or in particular to charter a superyacht for your next yachting vacation in the Mediterranean or the Caribbean.
The ultimate super cats in the power catamaran range are boats such as NAUTI NICKEL or SOL, both SUNREEF 80 power catamarans based in US Virgin Islands or Puertorico respectfully and throughout the summer and winter seasons. These power catamarans excel in anything that is already an advantage against similarly sized exclusive sailing catamarans or 100ft motor yachts even. Apart from even more space and larger arsenals of water toys, you are likely to find further amenities, such as hydraulic balconies in master suites, a Jacuzzi on top deck and possibly other facilities such as wine coolers and even carbonation systems to make cold seltzer water or trash compactors and use of green cleaning agents such is the case with Nauti Nickel for example.
Best value luxury charter is on power catamarans
All in all, power catamarans are both offering more advantages but also better value in many aspects of a luxury yacht charter holiday. This is being recongised both by owners and yacht charter guests a like, so that demand for purchasing a new power catamaran or chartering one in all major yacht charter destinations is increasing. As a result, availability of other 60-70ft luxury power catamarans is even higher as a number of Sunreef 60, Fountain Pajot 67s, Lagoon 63 power and even Voyage 650 power cats, available for private yacht charters are increasing across all destinations. This is in particular the case in locations such as Virgin Islands and East Mediterranean and you are well advised to check in value of these boats for charter, and comparing them to standard sailing catamarans from same manufacturers as in most cases, sailing catamarans are likely to run on power of their lower performance engines alone, rather than relying on power of wind.
All in all, when it comes to superyacht hire or luxury yacht charter in general, both exclusivity and value of power catamarans is not to be overlooked. You are therefore invited to consider these fine superyachts when choosing the most suitable yacht for your next private yacht charter holiday in both the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. The choice is increasing, value is there and possible discounts are likely to be greater than on comparable sailing catamarans, in particular in out of season periods or for major holidays such as Thanksgiving yacht charters in the Caribbean or the Bahamas or summer school holidays in the Mediterranean.
