Longing to unplug and get away from it all? If you’re like most people these days, you are already thinking about where and when you can travel. But what about distancing yourself and your family from the crowds? The best way to continue social distancing while traveling is by a trip designed just for you. One excellent way to get away is on a private luxury catamaran sailing vacation.
Who Should Take a Catamaran Sailing Vacation?
While couples, friends, or families would enjoy a sailing catamaran, these boats are ideal for first-time sailors and for families. The benefits of space, privacy, luxury, and comfort make this vessel an excellent choice.
What are the Benefits of a Catamaran?
The catamaran’s multi-hull provides more stability than a traditional mono-hull sailboat. The heeling, as well as the wave-induced motion, is much less noticeable aboard a catamaran. A catamaran can have sails or it can be motor-driven only. In addition, motor catamarans are referred to as power catamarans and sailing catamarans as catamarans.
Besides having a great deal of stability, newer catamarans have fly-bridges with 360-degree views. Many also have covered cockpit areas with outdoor dining space. Some catamarans like the Leopard 5800 have a forward cockpit as well as a trampoline area. The trampoline allows water to quickly pass through it, letting the catamaran’s bow rise safely. You can walk on the trampoline and also relax on it and enjoy the passing scenery.
In addition to space and comfort, catamarans have a shallow draft. The draft refers to the depth of the lowest part of a boat. The shallow draft allows the boat to navigate very shallow waters without the worry of hitting rocks or running aground. So, you can get closer to shore and enjoy peaceful, calm anchorage.
