The demand for catamarans has increased over the last few years for good reason. They are wonderful boats for families and friends. They offer so much more space, comfort and privacy. The stability is appreciated by everyone, especially those prone to seasickness. And for those who think they are giving up some of the thrill of putting the rail to the wave, the speed of a catamaran should give you some excitement. The shallow draft allows you access to many private beaches and coves other boats cannot enjoy.
What is required to charter a catamaran?
You must have a reasonable amount of sailing experience on similar sized boats. You will be asked to fill out a sailing resume. Sailing School Certificates are helpful, but hands-on experience is more important. If there is any question about your skills during your briefing a captain will go out with you for a while to determine your bareboat ability and comfort level.
Sailing your own yacht in the British Virgin Islands or any other locations throughout the Caribbean is like no other vacation. Many who have experienced this wonderful trip come back time and again. You get up when you want to, sail where you want to, swim, dive, snorkel, eat, sleep, drink, beach comb, you name it, when and where you want to.
The weather changes very little from one season to the next, always around the 80’s during the day. The evenings usually cool down with a nice breeze, an occasional shower in the 70’s. The water is always warm and crystal clear.
You will discover a placid, turquoise paradise stretching as far as the eye can see with unimaginable graduations of color. You will dive into diverse marine life around reef systems that are kept healthy by the continuous enrichment. Topside you will find many uninhabited low islands with beautiful beaches on which to play, explore, and relax.
