Even in rough weather you will appreciate the catamaran stability that no sailboat can provide you.
Catamarans are a class of yachts that has 2 hulls, equal in size. Catamaran hull speeds are very high, making catamaran a good choice for recreational uses.
Catamarans are usually faster then single hull boats. This is due to several factors, the most important of which is the catamaran hull shape. Catamarans are also very light, which further reduces drag and displacements. Stability of the catamarans comes from there wide beam length. One more great advantage is that they are wider and much spacer than monohulls. Because of that fact a catamaran interior and deck are much more spacious so you have more room in all places on the catamaran. Since catamarans have more room it creates feelings like you are in the luxury apartment. Heads and showers are separate and also the cabins provide enough room for spacious and large beds.  Catamarans are ideal for long cruising in the Croatia sea as they are very spacious and comfortable for long time on it.
Although the principles, sailing is the same for catamarans and monohulls. Discovering catamaran Croatia charter and rentals with

  • Some catamarans can be harder to tack. Because they are lighter then sailboat in proportion to their sail size, catamarans have less momentum to carry them in the turn when they are head to the wind. Correct use of the catamaran of the sail is often essential in successful completing a track without ending up stuck.
  • Catamarans have a higher average speed then sailboats.
  • They are less likely to capsize in the classic manner but often they have a tendency to pitchpole instead. Where the leeward bow sinks into the water and the yacht trips over forwards.
Learning new sailors is usually carried on monohulls as they are thought easier to learn to sail and also is much cheaper, a mixture of all the differences mentioned before  probably contributes to this.
Catamarans and multihulls are normally faster then single hull yachts for three reasons:
  • Catamaran hulls are thinner in cross section then monohulls.
  • Catamarans are lighter.
  • They have a wider beam
Catamaran is most likely to achieve the max. speed when its going forward and its not unduly disturbed by the waves. This is achieved where the waves are not so big, it is achieved by the design. This has led to being said that catamarans are favorable in coastal waters.
Catamarans over 14 meters (46 feet) provide comfortable and pleasant sailing vacation in luxury and style how you deserve it. Catamarans are ideal for long charter vacations; some of them have 4 or 5 cabins, and also with owner versions.

Catamarans make a special type of sailboats. They consist of two connected hulls; considering their construction they are more stabile and spacious than monohulls. Catamarans are roomy inside and outside on decks. They are relatively low and have swimming ladder which makes them easily reachable, and in addition to that they allow good visibility and bring plenty of natural light in.

Catamarans are ideal choice for families and larger groups, and they are safer for small children and yachtsmen beginners than monohulls.
Considering their wide and spacious interior there is little chance of feeling squeezed in or claustrophobic.

Another good thing about their layout is a separate skipper cabin, which is accessible through saloon but directly from the deck also. Not all models have this option, but regardless of that, you will still have enough of your private space on a catamaran.
Compared to monohulls, they are also easier to navigate and don’t require any special experience. However, if you are not certain of your skills, we strongly recommend hiring a skipper.
Catamarans are a good choice for those with little or no experience on board, as well as for those more experienced sailors looking for comfort and space.

What is Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA)?

When chartering a crewed yacht under MYBA terms, you will be required to make a deposit in advance of the charter, which is separate to the charter or booking fee.
This deposit is called the “advance provisioning allowance” or APA. The APA amount is used to cover expenses incurred during the course of the charter such as fuel, food, beverages, mooring fees, visa fees, harbour fees, park fees, taxes, and other expenses not included in the Charter Fee. In the event of cancellation of the charter the APA is refundable.
The captain of the yacht is responsible for accounting for all APA expenses during the charter, and the breakdown will be presented to you in a clear manner at the end of the charter.
If the costs incurred during the course of the charter are less than the APA deposit, then the difference will be refunded to the Charterer at the end of the charter.
If the costs incurred during the course of the charter that are over and above the APA deposit then this difference will be payable by the Charterer at the end of the charter.
