If you are a power boater at heart, not interested in sailing, or you are tired of grinding winches and raising sails, one of the easiest ways to enjoy a yacht charter throughout the Caribbean, Bahamas, Greece or Croatia is onboard a power catamaran from Virgin Island Sailing®. More and more cruisers are discovering the ease and comfort of a power catamaran, plus the additional space afforded by not having sails.
Without the dependency on the wind, there is greater flexibility and freedom when charting a course for your cruising route. With the benefit of continuous speed, you can travel from port to port expeditiously, and thus start your island explorations and water activities sooner. All power “cats” come equipped with full air-conditioning, generators, and maybe the best of all, an excellent complement of electronics and amenities.
On a bareboat power cat yacht charter, you are still your own captain. On a crewed private power cat yacht charter, a professional captain and chef team will exceed your expectations for both service and quality. Either way, on a Virgin Island Sailing® power catamaran, your party will experience a vacation venture in grand style.
Power catamarans, like sailing catamarans, have a wide beam and an abundance of deck space, providing for very comfortable surroundings. Unlike most of their sailing counterparts, power catamarans have the unique design feature of a large upper deck “flybridge”. Without having the sails above the cockpit, there is plenty of room for this extra living space – often with a full-size dining table, seating for your entire group, BBQ, sunpads and so on, depending on the power cat model.
Power catamarans are available for bareboat power cat charters or crewed power cat charters. For captain only charters, we can hire a captain for your bareboat sailing charter. Shared charters are available on catamarans – shared (by the cabin) charters.
Regardless of their size, the typical power catamaran is configured with spacious cabins and ensuite heads (bathrooms), a roomy galley, interior lounge areas, and plenty of outdoor lounging space to sunbathe, star gaze, or simply enjoy the pristine tropical beauty of your destination. As the size of the power cats increase, subsequently every area on board also increases in size – homelike kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms are quite common on the larger power catamaran charters.
Bareboat power cats range in size from 37’ to 53’ and accommodate two to ten people onboard. Crewed power cats range in size from 50’ – 90’ with desirable luxury features and water toys. Due to the immense space and stability, power catamarans are great for single families, multiple families and a big hit with couples-only groups.
Safety and maintenance play a major role in any of the power cat selections chartered through Virgin Island Sailing®. We ensure each yacht meets our demanding standards of quality and that each charter fulfills your expectations of a worry-free yachting vacation.
