Renting a catamaran allows you to enjoy an unforgettable holiday with as many people as you want! You can rent a catamaran for a family holiday, but you can also rent a catamaran with friends and enjoy a long trip to different places together like Ibiza , Phuket , Mallorca , Barcelona , or even Cabo San Lucas !

A catamaran is a perfect boat, not only for discovering incredible new places on land, but it's also a great way to spend time out at sea and discover the most interesting places. Catamarans are luxury yachts on which you can spend a week of adventure and new discoveries every day, with your own private space and a huge number of activities to do onboard.

For those prone to motion sickness at sea, chartering a catamaran could be an excellent option for you! This boat rental is a multi-hulled yacht, which creates a stable smooth sailing experience. Check out Nautal’s options for catamarans for rent in any of our charter destinations. Nautal also offers yacht rentals, sailboats, motorboats, and more in various destinations.

How much does a catamaran rental cost?

Catamaran charter prices range depending on several factors such as the destination you choose to sail from, the features of the boat, and what would be included for your sailing holiday. The owner of the catamaran chooses whether these rentals are available to rent for daily or weekly charters. Depending on the factors explained above you can find a catamaran charter for your sailing vacations starting from $4,000 per week in low season and starting from $8,000 per week in high season. For the yacht charters that offer a daily rental, the catamaran rental prices range from $625 per day in low season and from $1,000 per day in high season.

For some catamarans with mandatory skippers, this can either be an included or additional cost starting at $225 per day.

Do I need a boat license to rent a catamaran?

Some catamarans can be rented with or without a skipper depending on the rental choice. To rent a catamaran without a skipper you need a valid boating license. Ask the boat owner for confirmation about the nautic license that is needed in your respective destination.

Renting a catamaran with a skipper is an optimal choice so you can relax while the captain takes care of guiding the boat to the various destinations of your choosing.

What are the best destinations to rent a catamaran?

A catamaran allows you to pick and choose what you want to do on your trip! You can go to the island's most hidden spots or discover non-touristy beaches. Between beaches and new spots, you can swim in the clear turquoise water and warm up in the sun afterward. With a catamaran, you can dive and snorkel or scuba dive in the open sea and stop for dinner at the most magical spots.

The most popular destinations for catamaran rentals are Italy  (e.g. Amalfi coast ), Croatia , and Greece  (e.g.  Athens ). Greek islands and the Balearic islands of Mallorca and Ibiza would also be recommended for catamaran chartering. Set sail in the  Caribbean  sea and hop to the various islands that are available such as Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, and  Saint Thomas , or head to the Bahamas and enjoy your outdoor living island hopping such as Nassau and Great Abaco.

What should I consider when renting a Catamaran?

In general, catamarans have two hulls connected by a central structure which allows them to sail flat. There are several advantages to flat sailing. When the wind is strong and gains speed, for example, the sail areas are not reduced as they would be with other boat charters. The shallow, raised hulls at each end reduce friction in the water and improve the boat’s glide. This is also beneficial for any sailors that get seasick! This makes the boat less rocky and therefore will make it less likely that you feel seasick.

There are 4 levels in a catamaran: cabin, saloon and cockpit, the piloting and trampoline. It is a very airy boat, bright and open to the outside, which contributes to its luxurious side.

The speed of a catamaran is on average 6 to 13 knots. Finally, when it comes to the navigation of the catamaran itself, maneuvers are done from the cockpit because catamarans are often designed to be maneuvered by a single person.

What is included in a catamaran charter and what additional expenses can I expect?

Each catamaran charter offer has different additional and included costs. Depending on the owner’s offer items such as the skipper, a deposit, chef and crew, and water sports equipment such as snorkeling masks, paddle surf and kayaks may be included or additional costs.

Some owners will ask for a deposit, which needs to be paid at check-in. Likewise, a skipper may be mandatory or optional and come at an additional or included price depending on the catamaran option. If you decide to sail without a skipper, then additional costs may also include insurance.

Other mandatory extras can include final cleaning and refueling after your rental service. Ask the boat owner if they would like you to refill the fuel before giving the boat back or if they prefer to handle that themselves at an additional cost. Mooring fees at the base may also be included but if you decide to moor at other destinations then the fee will be an additional cost.

You may also choose to hire crew members to cook delicious meals and prepare drinks for you and your group! This is a great option for those that want to relax and get served some typical food from the area. For most catamaran rentals this will come at an additional cost.

Another optional additional cost can be water sports equipment! If you want to adventure into the beautiful blue water whether it is snorkeling and finding marine life or paddle surfing through coves, speak to the boat owner to know what additional equipment is available for you to rent!

It is worth noting that the offers are in Euros, therefore the price varies depending on the exchange rate for your respective currency.

How can I rent a catamaran?

We have a wide range of catamarans on the Nautal website where you can easily browse and find the one that suits you best. Be sure to use our filters to select your desired boat size, the number of passengers on board, the dates of your trip, whether you want to rent a catamaran with or without a skipper, and much more! Feel free to check with the boat owner if you have any doubts or questions. Prices for catamaran charters start at around $1,500 per week in the low season, but the more expensive models can go up to $16,000 per week.

What are the most popular brands for catamaran charter?

Some of the most popular brands for catamaran rental are Lagoon, Fountaine Pajot, Leopard Catamarans, and Catana. They all provide top-class comfort on board. 

Why rent a catamaran?

A catamaran is a very comfortable option for a boat holiday. They offer more privacy, as the two hulls mean that the cabins are not close to each other. The typical nets at the bow are ideal to lie down to sunbathe, rest or play. They are able to get into shallow ports due to their small draft and can reduce wave-induced motion, therefore, helping with motion sickness.

How much does it cost to charter a catamaran?

A catamaran has at least 3 cabins, which makes it a bit more expensive than a sailboat. They cost around $1500 per week in low season. The larger and most luxurious models can cost up to $16,000 per week in high season and without a skipper. The price of a full charter, with skipper and crew, can go up to $25,000 per week. Catamarans can be rented on a daily basis in places like Mallorca and Ibiza.

What does a catamaran charter rate include and what additional fees can I expect to pay?

Typically, private charter catamarans have a base price and a total cost that includes mandatory extras. Pay particular attention here to decide if you want to include only the final cleaning or also add bedding, towels, and an engine for the auxiliary boat. Other costs include mooring fees, of course, which can vary greatly depending on the size of the ship, the port and the country. For gas and fresh water, you can expect to pay between $200 and $400 per week.

Do I need a license to charter a catamaran?

To charter a bareboat catamaran, you will need a license in almost every country. France and the Caribbean do not require a license but do require a "past history sailing experience". If you do not have a license, you can choose to book a skipper with your catamaran. Many catamarans have 2 additional cabins at the front of the bow, ideal for crew members, leaving 4 double cabins free for guests.

What are the best catamaran charter destinations?

Catamarans are perfect for a vacation in the Caribbean as their shallow draft is ideal for snorkeling and swimming. Martinique, Bahamas, the British Virgin Islands, and many other areas are highly sought-after destinations for a catamaran vacation, but there is also a great demand for catamarans in Greece, Sardinia, Croatia, and the Balearic Islands.

Why choose a catamaran?

Catamarans are becoming an increasingly popular option for charter holidays, experienced sailors and boatsmen from all over the world; hence the increasing efforts of shipyards and designers to create ever more comfortable and spacious models (Lagoon, Fountaine Pajot). Some catamarans, however are designed to optimize performance, such as Catana’s or TS 42 catamarans, which compete with innovation and speed.

There are many notable advantages of a catamaran charter as opposed to a monohull; including decreased heeling, which means your cruise will be more relaxing and convenient, as well as being significantly safer. The doubled deck space, in conjunction with the flybridge and cockpit give the boats a greater level of comfort and livability in comparison to many monohulls of similar lengths.

The shallow draft of a catamaran allows the boat to approach closer to the shore than other yachts, meaning you can drop anchor at hidden coves and beaches and swim in peace! In addition, catamarans are equipped with 2 engines, which makes them more powerful and therefore easier to manage and manoeuvre during navigation despite their volume, as well as typically being able to reach speeds up to 30% faster than monohulls of the same length.

Rental catamarans tend to comprise of 4 double cabins, for 8-10 people, depending on the design. Some also have a convertible saloon that can accommodate 1-2 extra people. A 40ft vessel (e.g. Lagoon 400, Lipari 41, Nautitech 40, ...) is perfect for a group of 8-10. A catamaran charter can be more versatile for families with children, or groups of friends due to the increased comfort. The greater use of the motors as opposed to just sails better suits those less accustomed to life at sea or prone to seasickness.

What if I’m a beginner?

Catamarans are perfect for the both the experienced and the novice sailor; relying less on the sails, it is possible to cruise just using the engines. If you’re a beginner or have never sailed, there is the option to charter with a professional crew; with the services of a skipper and hostess you won’t have to worry about navigation, meals or cleaning, so you can enjoy maximum comfort and minimum stress during your holiday!

Some catamarans can also be rented by the cabin, for one or two people, with half/full board and with a customized navigation program; this is the perfect way to enjoy all the wonders of sailing without any of the work! We offer numerous Cabin Cruises in unbelievable destinations. You can discover Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast and swim in the crystalline waters of the Adriatic aboard a Bali 4.3, or enjoy an all-inclusive cruise in the Seychelles aboard an Eleuthera 60, where you will have the chance to explore the tropical wildlife of this breathtaking archipelago…. Get in contact with our experts for more information if you’re interested in a cabin charter for next cruise.

Where to rent a catamaran…

As such a popular choice for boat rentals nowadays, you can charter a catamaran from pretty much anywhere across the globe! Cuba, Norway, Ibiza, Brazil, Seychelles, Vietnam, France or Fiji… think of a place and we’ll probably have a boat there for you, which means in Summer or Winter there will always be a boat ready somewhere in the world to give you a perfect, sunny sailing paradise.

In the Summer months, you can cruise in Mediterranean destinations such as Croatia, which accounts for over 20% of rentals, whereas in the Winter season people escape to the exotic waters of the Caribbean, of the islands of the Pacific, for example.

What should I budget for a catamaran charter?

One of the many benefits of a catamaran charter through GlobeSailor, is our vast range of boats available which means you can rent a catamaran for anything upwards from €510 per week! Prices vary depending on the season in which you wish to cruise, typically the peak Summer months are significantly more expensive, so if you plan to sail then, make sure you book early! Costs will also depend on your specific charter needs; for example, if you require the services of a skipper and hostess during your cruise, this can add at least another €300 per day onto the price.

Basic tips for sailing a catamaran…

If you’re more accustomed to monohull sailing or just want a little reminder of some of the key tips to remember when embarking on a catamaran charter, here’s a few of the main reminders:

If you cruise under power – which many people opt for when sailing a catamaran, the most important thing is that you have two engines; with one in each hull, maneuvering is significantly easier than with a monohull.

When navigating under sail however, there are some important differences that must be considered: firstly, catamarans do not go upwind as well as monohulls, they thrive when sailing off wind. Secondly, one of the large attractions of chartering a catamaran is that they do not heel, which can make life on board a lot more smooth and convenient, so for a sociable cruise with friends and family, the sailing should not be so disruptive; but the flip side of the coin is that it’s harder to feel if the boat is over-canvassed. Finally, when anchoring your boat, you should consider that catamarans offer less water resistance than monohulls so it takes longer to slow down, but the shallow draft means you’ll be able to anchor in spots that sailboats could only dream of!

What is a Catamaran?

What is a Catamaran?

A catamaran is defined as a boat with two hulls that connect to a structured bridging - which serves as the boat’s deck .   In a catamaran, the staterooms and respective  head s are housed with in the two hulls, while the deckhouse typically  features a navigational ‘cockpit’ ,   saloon , and galley.   Also referred to as a cat, these types of boats offer either  sailing or power capabilities - or both .  

The origins of a Catamaran date back to the 17 th  century . D esigned as a raft   consisting of two logs connected by planks,  they were used by natives in the  Indonesian A rchipelago  and  S outh  P acific for the purpose of  fishing, visiting ,  war, and exploration. These primitive catamarans originally paddled by a group of men ( and , eventually outfitted with a sail ) ,  have since evolved into one of the most innovative and  revered  sailboats in the world.   

Today’s catamarans have seen an increased demand and  popularity for vacationers looking to rent a spacious sailboat , sailors who want to cruise the world  on a bareboat catamaran charter - even sailboat enthusiasts looking for fun daytime adventure  on a small er  sailing cat .    

12 Knots offers over 11,000  modern catamarans for charter in 36 locations around the world . Modern cruising catamarans not only  provide stability  and excellent sailing performance - they also offer   comfortable  cabins , as well as functional , spacious  deck s -often outfitted with netting ideal for sunbathing .  

The Popularity of Chartering a Catamaran

So, what makes a catamaran charter so popular? In addition to a number of appealing attributes, there are also  many advantages when you chose to rent a catamaran for your next sailing adventure:  

Advantages :  

Space -   Catamarans have about 2 times the space than their monohull counterpart s - offering   an extensive  deck ing and a much more comfortable  and spacious interior area  with up to 4 cabins, as well as ample room for storage .   A catamaran’s living space also  sits above the water line which increases a better flow of air circulation /ventilation , more light , and fabulous views.  

Stability  -   The design of a catamaran’s  twin  parallel hulls creates a natural stability . This results in less  bobbing  on the waves -providing  a smoother ride. This  is beneficial to travelers who are prone to seasickness or those traveling with children or elderly passengers .  

Greater  Speed   -   With the absence of a keel and a lower wetted surface area ,  catamarans are much lighter than their monohull counterparts enabling them to reach higher speeds  (sometimes up to 50% faster) -especially when their  sails are  kept perpendicular to the wind .  

Maneuverability -  Twin engines located in each hull , along with its two rudders,  allows for greater  maneuverability   with the ability to turn 360 degrees within the length of the boat. This is a great advantage when trying to dock in a narrow marina.   

Shallow D raft  -   Unlike a monohull, a cat amaran  can anchor in almost any bay.  The absence of a keel results in having a lower /shallow draft which enables a cat to  venture  closer to shore- this feature is  advantageous  when exploring  coral reefs and the many islands  throughout the  Caribbean .  

Fuel -  Even with twin engines, a catamaran charter can be economical when they rely on the ir sails  and the wind.  

Safety  -   Without a keel, cats are  virtually unsinkable ;  because unlike a monohull, the chances of them hitting something in the water and causing damage to the boat are much less unlikely .   A modern catamaran built of light weight foam construction will  also provide greater buoyancy on the water. A catamaran’s flat deck also makes it safer and easier for passengers (and pets) to move about  the boat when it is sailing .  

Disadvantages :  

While there are certainly many advantages when you charter a catamaran, there can also be a few disadvantages .  

Sailing   -   With the absence of a keel,  sailing a cat  is sometimes more challenging because they can’t sail as high into the wind as a monohull. Catamarans can also experience  issues with  maintaining momentum because  they are more difficult to tack.  

Docking   -   Unlike their  monohull  counterpart, the wide width design of a catamaran will  require  more room to dock ;   b ecause they take up  a greater amount of space,  docking options may be limited and fees are often doubled.  

Fuel consumption  -  Compared to a monohull, fuel consumption can be greater because of a catamaran’s twin engines.  

Noise  -   A catamaran ’ s design of a wide deck strapped between two hulls can sometimes  cause an irritating slapping  or pounding sound - especially  while  sailing  in rough er  seas .  

Safety  -  Unlike monohulls that were designed to correct themselves if they flip-over, cats are much more difficult to correct if they turn upside down.  

Price  -  Depending on the boat itself, catamarans for charter can be more expensive than monohull sailboat rentals because of all the benefits they offer.  

Cost of a Catamaran Charter

The total cost of renting a catamaran is considerably less than most people think- it is  comparable to a weeks’ vacation at an all-inclusive  beach  resort.  

The cost to charter a catamaran will always vary, but on the average, they usually run anywhere from $2,500 to 35,000 per week. The price of a catamaran rental will always  be determined by  the following factors:  

Catamaran size , age and model  

Destination   

Duration of trip   

Season/time of year  (high season vs low/off season)    

Amenities - such as kayaks, jet skis, diving and snorkeling equipment  

Bareboat or crewed- Bareboat charters will always be less expensive than a crewed charter  

For the best price and value for your money, you’ll want to contact 12 Knots to take advantage of their booking discounts and charter special offers  

Finding the Right Catamaran Rental

Popular models of catamarans for rent ( cruising and sport ) :  

Lagoon  

Catana  

Fountain Pajot  

Corsair  

CraigCat  

Nautitech  

Privilege  

Megayacht Catamarans  

Depending on your purpose for chartering a catamaran, it will be important to know the two types ,  as well as their functionality and characteristics :  

Cruising  catamarans  

If your goal is a tranquil and relaxing vacation , cruising charter catamarans are the perfect choice.  

Use only the wind and sails as its source of energy- which makes it one of the most environmentally friendly boat types .  Cruising catamarans that have engines generally only use them when necessary.  

Ideal for both couples and families  (safer option for families travelling with children and elderly passengers) .  

Known for their stability, reliability , and speed  

Popular choice for bareboat catamaran charters and crewed charters because they provide ample living space, comfortable cabins , and a netted deck area perfect for sunbathing .  

Sport catamarans  

Ideal for rac es and regattas  

Need proficient sailing skills and manpower to operate (crewed)  

Known for achieving high  speed s and exceptional  maneuverability  

Offer performance  and functionality over comfort  

Best Catamaran Charter  Destinations  

Some of the best destinations for catamaran charters are: Caribbean, South East Asia ,   Greece ,  Sardinia, and  Croatia .  

These locations are favorable because anchorage and moorings are  generally plentiful and easy to access rather  than  marinas in  the Mediterranean -  which are typically more crowded ; and, quite often , will  charge you double the price for docking space because the size of your boat.  

Charter Sailboat Requirements  

Bareboat catamaran charter s in most countries will require a license to operate  the vessel . However, in the United States, France, and the Caribbean a license is not necessary -  but documentation stating your experience and sailing history is required. Of course, that shouldn’t stop you from chartering a catamaran as you can always choose to book a skipper for your  sailing vacation.

Welcome to the beautiful Bahamas , a tropical paradise known for its turquoise waters and breathtaking scenery. If you're looking for a unique way to explore this stunning archipelago, why not consider renting a catamaran?

Sailing in The Bahamas is a truly magical experience, and catamarans are the perfect boats for exploring the many islands and cays.
