Multihull history

Catamarans for charter were not invented in Italy, as the main idea and design for double and triple hull boats existed for over 3000 years. It was used by fishing community paravas at the southern coast of Tamilnadu, India. That’s why the word catamaran originates from the Tamil language, in which the word kattumaram means “logs bound together”.

Later, these types of yachts (also known as cat boats) have been used for transport and fishing in the coastal waters of New England. At the beginning of the 19th century, multihulls were used for racing. In the 20th century, catamarans were mainly used for charter, weekly sailing, and leisure cruises.

Accommodation and comfort

Catamaran Charter Italy offers catamarans for rent in Italy that can accommodate up to 12 guests in different combinations of cabins. Also depending on length, they have from 2 to 5 toilets or showers. Many catamarans can be chartered bareboat (no crew required; a nautical license is required), skippered, or fully crewed.

As starting points for catamaran charters, a number of cities and towns are available.

Catamarans sail like sailboats but have a lot more advantages. Among many advantages, comfort, security, stability, and speed are the main ones. Having two hulls and two keels, catamarans are extremely fast, stable, and most importantly, safe. Considering that they have minimal slope while sailing, they are the perfect choice for people who do not tolerate waves and rough seas.

As a result of the catamaran’s stability, you can experience more while sailing the Italian coast, regardless of the meltemi wind, waves, or weather. Thanks to the large sail area and better stability, they can generally sail much faster than regular monohulls (sailing boats). They are equipped with two widely separated engines, and because of that, they are much easier to handle. It’s very useful when maneuvering in tight marinas and small bays.  It is reasonable to say that catamarans for rent in Italy are the perfect blend of pleasure and comfort for sailing all around Italy’s islands.

Thanks to two separate hulls, the catamaran can offer more privacy and amazing views from the elevated salon that is located in the center of the boat. We could easily say that the only setback when chartering a double hulled yacht is the overall higher price and more expensive fees in harbors, buoys, and marinas. We have to offer you more than 100 multihulls for charter in Italy, from renowned brands such as Fountane Pajot, Lagoon, Nautitech, Catana, Leopard, Privilege, and also a brand new name in catamarans, Dufour. With the added benefit of stability, catamarans are ideal for those who may experience seasickness, making them a great option for families with children. Additionally, the spacious layout and ample storage space make catamarans a comfortable choice for longer trips.
