AMAIA CATAMARAN SAILBOAT

For your next vacation, why not book a bareboat charter in Phuket, Thailand on sailing yacht Amaia?

ABOUT THE CATAMARAN

She is a luxurious 47 foot sailing cat that offers variety in charter.  For example, if you so desire, you can also have a crewed catamaran charter onboard, as well.

Her abundantly-spacious exterior leads to a spacious cockpit which is perfect for enjoying a lazy lunch, relaxation, and some refreshing cocktails.  Lots of options exist for your relaxation enjoyment, for instance, catch up on some reading or sunbathing on the front deck, or even listen to some music under the dazzling cockpit lights.

ACCOMMODATIONS

Amaia can comfortably accommodate up to ten yacht charter guests for a bareboat charter, or 8 up to guests for a crewed catamaran charter.

Nautical phrases – yachtspeak – for charter guests

Posted on

NAUTICAL TERMINOLOGY

Taking a vacation by automobile doesn’t require any particular vocabulary skills.  However, when you go on a private yacht charter, it is sometimes nice to know some of the terminology used when onboard.

SAMPLE NAUTICAL TERMS

  • BOW – The forward part of a boat
  • STERN – The back of the boat
  • BEAM – The greatest width of the boat
  • BUOY – An anchored float used for marking a position on the water or a hazard or a shoal and for mooring
  • CABIN (or “stateroom”) – A compartment (bedroom) for passengers or crew
  • CATAMARAN – A twin-hulled boat, sometimes referred to as a multihull, with hulls side-by-side.  Can be sail or power, but is usually sail
  • CHART – A map for use by navigators
  • HELM (or “Navigation Station”) – The area from where the Captain steers the boat
  • CLEAT – A fitting to which lines are tied.  They are usually in somewhat of a “figure 8 shape.” Cleats are located on the dock and on the boat. (They are often tripped over, if you don’t watch your step!)
  • COCKPIT – An opening in the deck from which the boat is handled. (Visualize a large sailboat – the “steering wheel” of the boat is located in the cockpit)
  • DINGHY (also known as a “tender”) – A small open boat
  • “T/T BOATNAME” – Means “Tender To…[boatname].”   NOTE: Most yachts only have 1 tender.  Those with more than 1 tender (aka, dinghy) often have “TTT’s….or tenders for/to their tenders”
  • FENDER (also known as a “bumper”) – A cushion, placed between boats, or between a boat and a pier, to prevent damage

  • GALLEY – The kitchen of a boat
  • SAILBOAT – A boat powered by wind through sails (with ancillary engine)
  • POWERBOAT – A boat powered by engine and fuel
  • STINKPOTTER – A powerboat enthusiast
  • HEAD – A marine toilet/bathroom
  • DAY HEAD – The bathroom that is used by all guests, usually in main area of the boat and not located within a stateroom
  • INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY – Also known as “The ICW.”  Bays, rivers, and canals along the coasts (such as the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coasts), connected so that vessels may travel without going into the sea.  Evening charters in Florida often cruise along the ICW to see the holiday lights of the condos lining the waterway, for example
  • KNOT (relating to speed) – A measure of speed equal to one nautical mile (6076 feet) per hour
  • LOG – A record of courses or operation, kept by the captain/crew. (Charter guests often fill out an entry in a “guestbook” or “logbook” after a charter, as well, to describe their trip)
  • PLANING (“on a plane”) – As a boat evens out above the water when it is moving/underway, as opposed to still being partially underneath the water, as in before it starts moving
  • PORT – The left side of a boat looking forward. (Also refers to a docking location)
  • STARBOARD – The right side of a boat, looking forward
  • SCREW – A boat’s propeller.  (A “twin screw” is a boat with 2 propellers.)
  • UNDERWAY – Vessel in motion (also known as “running”)
  • WAKE – Moving waves, track, or path that a boat leaves behind it, when moving across the water
  • YACHT – A boat used for pleasure

These are just a few of the many nautical phrases used by yachties.

Stunning Sail Yachts Prepare For Virgin Islands Luxury Yacht Charter Season

Posted on

As the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season draws to a close, a number of sleek, stylish, and modern sailing charter vessels are making their way from ports around the world – to take their positions in the islands for the upcoming Caribbean yacht charter season.

Aerial photo of 3-masted sailboat, Maltese Falcon, underway. Center sail has a black flying falcon logo on it. Hull of yacht is dark against waves lapping at side of yacht. Statue of Liberty in the background of the photo.November is the month many yachts make the “Milk Run,” sailing across the Atlantic Ocean from Europe to the Caribbean.As in years past, the Virgin Island yacht charter fleet is expected to dominate the market in terms of the number of available yachts for hire, especially in the category of crewed catamaran charters.  Yachts such as Lagoon 620 catamaran yacht

THE CURE, and Sunreef 62 catamaran, TAHAA II are already in position to accept reservations (how does a Welcome to 2014 yacht charter vacation sound???).While the St. Thomas yacht charter market in the USVI, and the Tortola yacht charter market in the BVI are quite sizeble in terms of small to mid-size yachts, a large contingent of sail superyachts will choose the deeper water of the Leeward Islands for their winter base.  The St Martin yacht charter fleet and the St Barts fleets are expected to include these mega yacht charter stalwarts:

198 foot sail yacht KOKOMO
