Purchasing a sailing vessel of any kind is a momentous occasion.
Suddenly, you’re no longer confined to the boundaries of the land, and you can embark on journeys large and small on the oceans and lakes of your home country.
Sure, you might have gotten yourself a speedboat, which can rip across the calm waters of a bay at high speeds, or a dinghy, for calmly and lazily fishing for hours on end on a peaceful lake, but a Catamaran is the true prize in any boating circles.
Multi-hulled motor yachts for sale are some of the most-viewed and sought after things on boat sale sites these days, and there are many reasons to buy a Catamaran.
First and foremost is the stability offered by a multi-hulled vessel. A normal, smaller ship can be tipped and pitched wildly in even moderately-sized waves, and when your area for boating is a bay or the ocean, large waves caused by passing ocean liners can become a real problem.
A solution to this problem is buying a catamaran instead, as the multiple hulls separated by the body of the yacht is a great stabiliser, allowing you to more evenly and reliably
cross choppier waters.
When compared to smaller ships or even ships of comparable size, catamarans are almost always more luxurious than their single-hulled counterparts.
The spacing of the hulls allows for a lot more room on the ship itself, lending itself well to multiple levels and larger rooms on each level of your catamaran. The result is closer to a floating
luxury hotel than a ship you own and privately operate, and that makes it ideal for holidays and adventures in comfort and style.
As far as vessel potential goes, catamarans are more accommodating than their smaller relations, and allow for longer journeys at sea. This can take a humble catamaran and change it from just a day-trip ship to a sailing home for a week or more, giving you the
option to travel without needing to pay for accommodation. This is where the catamaran really shines, and where the smaller boating option falls short.
As far as sailing goes, many people start in smaller boats with a single engine and learn how to “drive” around the waters like that. Certainly this is a viable method of travel if you’re only travelling short distances, but for the adventurers and travellers among us, short distances don’t enter into our realms of interest.
Many catamarans come fully equipped with sails and can sail without the need of an engine, which makes them ideal for longer trips up the coast.
Unlike a small vessel that can pitch and rock enough to make any person feel sick, catamarans are stable and reliable, which makes them a great venue for a date.
Imagine taking that special someone out to sail around and see hidden coves and coral reefs for a sunny afternoon, and then add to that image the comfort and security of a large ship with a comfortable interior for sun protection, and a sail to show off your sailing skills.
Finally, there’s the difference factor. In any given suburb you can blindly throw a stone and hit a speed boat parked in a driveway, or a small ship sitting in a garage. They’re very common things to find, small vessels, but catamarans have a sense of exclusivity and pride to them.
You probably know a handful of people with some kind of boat, but
you probably don’t know anyone with a luxurious, multi-hulled catamaran.
These points all go a long way to point out the many benefits of owning a catamaran, but don’t let your investigation stop here. Get down to your nearest dock and gaze upon the majestic ships gently floating in the ocean, or go to your nearest dealership and strike up a conversation. Your next great adventure is only a catamaran away.
