Active people love catamarans

Posted on

Crewed catamaran charters are a wonderful vacation for active and adventurous travelers.

Most catamarans feature a large assortment of water toys.  For instance, sea kayaks, towable tubes, snorkel gear, and towable bananas.  Also included in watersports activities are hamster balls (clear ball for walking on water), trampolines (that sit on the water), SeaDoos, paddleboards, and skurfers.  There are many fun activities and toys to enjoy on a catamaran vacation.  The previous items are just a few.

Many catamarans also offer SCUBA for certified divers.  If guests aren’t certified but want to try it, they are able!  They can take a resort course from the yacht, as well!

Bahamas yacht charter catamarans receive special treatment.  They are often visited by swimming pigs that live on Big Major Cay, better known as “Pig Beach.”  The pigs swim out to the boats.  You can also swim with them, give them approved treats, and take lots of selfies!

Are you ready to book your active sailing charter?  How about swimming with the Bahamian pigs?  From your crewed catamaran?  If so, then contact 1-800 Yacht Charters at today!

Builder of Catamarans Undeterred by Shipyard Fire

At any rate, fire halted production. This happened at the shipyard of a builder of luxury catamarans.  The company President says it’s business as usual just 5 days later.



The fire on January 19 did not stop production for long.  The catamaran manufacturer started rebuilding lost units within 5 short days. Some yachts under construction were destroyed.  Key molds were saved, however, and the shipyard adapted another production hall right away.  Above all, the molds moved to the new site, and business resumed.

Production was recommenced on January 23rd, and Francis Lapp, President of Sunreef Yachts, is,

“…confident any delays in delivery due to the fire will not exceed 3 months.”

Interest in crewed catamaran charters has increased dramatically in the past 5 years, thanks in part to the roominess and stability of these multi-hull vessels, as compared to their monohull counterparts. 

Sunreef Yachts is a leading designer and builder of luxury sailing and power catamarans in the 60 to 80 foot range. The company is known for its commitment to building yachts with luxurious accommodations, expansive living spaces, and  innovative designs.



Currently in service as Caribbean yacht charter vessels are Sunreef 62 sailing catamaran CATSY, Sunreef 70 power catamaran DAMRAK II, and Sunreef 70 sail catamaran SEAZEN II.



In conclusion, enjoy the comfort and space of a wide-body catamaran for your next Spring or Easter yacht rental.  Contact the 1-800 Yacht Charters catamaran specialists at for list of available cats in the Caribbean.
