What is a flybridge on a catamaran? The flybridge is extra space on the “roof” of the boat (called the fly) where there are a driving position, a sunbathing area, and lots of seating. This area is usually covered by a hardtop. Once you’ve had fun on a charter catamaran flybridge, you may not want to charter a catamaran that doesn’t have one. Here we take a look at the top-3 catamaran flybridge activities.
Reasons to Choose a Flybridge Catamaran Charter
There are several reasons why you may want to choose a yacht with a flybridge to charter. Some of the best activities on the flybridge are taking pictures, socializing, and dining.
The views from on high are unparalleled. Not only can you see for miles, but you can also take some amazing photos. With the sea or the island in the background and perfect natural lighting, your pictures will be ready for social media.
Flybridges are usually equipped with a small refrigerator, wet bar, barbeque grill, and lots of comfortable seating. In fact, you’ll find that a catamaran with a flybridge has more space than another catamaran of equal length. It’s like having an entire extra room for relaxing and socializing. On the other hand, if you would like more alone time, you will find that the added space of the flybridge allows for this as well.
The breeze, the views, room to stretch out. All of these elements come together to make the flybridge an amazing place for enjoying a meal al fresco. The word alfresco comes from an Italian term al fresco, which translates to “in the fresh air.” That is exactly what you will be doing on the flybridge: dining outside in the fresh air, in the beautiful Caribbean weather.
