Boating holidays are great ways to escape the crowds and explore the open ocean at your own leisure! One of the most popular methods is a catamaran hire because they are perfect for families, friends, and couples. Catamarans come with the advantage of being as exciting as they are relaxing, it is up to the renter to decide. Moreover, the multiple hulls provide extra stability and comfort, making it an ideal option for larger groups or people with motion sickness.
The price to charter a catamaran depends on various factors such as the size of the catamaran, the destination, the seasonality, and the duration of your journey. For example, a catamaran hire in Tortola for six people in the low season is around £1,400 per day. In contrast, a catamaran hire in Athens for twelve people in high season is around £800 per day.
If you would like to charter a catamaran without a skipper, then a boating license may be required based on regional legislation and/or the boat owner's request. The kind of boat license is also dependent on the location, so the best advice is to ask the catamaran owner. However, if you hire a catamaran with a skipper, then you do not need to worry about having a boat license because a professional will be handling all of the sailing, docking, and anchoring.
With Nautal, you have the chance to charter a catamaran all around the world. During the summer, the most popular destinations include locations in Greece, Croatia, and Italy. People that hire a catamaran for a week or longer also travel between locations such as from Barcelona to Mallorca.
When it comes to popular destinations during the winter, people tend to seek destinations in the Caribbean or Florida, where the weather is still hot from December through February. Can’t decide on one location? Book a catamaran hire for longer periods and sail from Miami to The Bahamas. When you find yourself wanting to travel during off-peak, you can also head to our popular destinations in Asia such as Phuket. All in all, there is so much to explore, and a catamaran hire is a great choice for your next adventure.
If you seek a catamaran hire for your next sailing holiday, then you will be glad to know all the advantages they offer. In general, catamarans have two or three hulls, providing a stable and balanced sailing experience. The benefits of these multiple hulls are that they reduce friction with the sea for a smooth sailing experience. Catamarans are also typically very spacious and open with outside space, providing optimal comfort and luxury.
Typically, a catamaran charter will have a base rate that includes the boat and its taxes for the duration of your journey. However, there can be additional charges such as fuel, mooring costs, water toys, and/or a skipper. The price of these additions is purely based on the boat owner’s decision. Therefore, we recommend that you always ask the boat owner for a price breakdown before the start of your catamaran hire so there are no unpleasant surprises.
