More about Luxury Catamarans

Yacht designers are well aware of the benefits of luxury catamarans in terms of space, configuration flexibility and cruising efficiencies. One downside is potential difficulties in finding harbour berths due to the large beam of a larger crewed luxury catamaran. Luxury yacht industry professionals increasingly view the catamaran concept as being the 'yacht type of the future'.  Luxury catamarans are getter larger, more luxurious and more technologically advanced and there are more and more interesting designs being Launched every year - as with other more traditional kinds of mono-hull superyacht.

The strengths of the catamaran as a luxury yacht re well documented. This type of sailing superyacht offers the speed and space of a large modern motor yacht whilst at the same time providing the smooth efficient sailing performance of a sailing yacht. Reduced draft has its benefits too. This enables even large catamaran to moor in close to the shoreline and get great spots in port or anchorages. Luxury catamarans have further upside in that’s they have excellent stability, safety and efficiency in terms of engine and fuel usage.

An increasingly important advantage is the ecological or green one. Large luxury sailing catamarans are able to subsidise their fuel use by using the wind for propulsion. Also, catamarans tend to use smaller and more efficient diesel engines than mono hull yachts, especially motor yachts, as they are efficiently driven through the water as higher speeds without as much power. Catamarans designs simply very good sense, from every angle, and they also make excellent charter yachts.

Europeans, particularly the French, were the first to take up the luxury catamaran concept in a serious way. All areas of the world are now showing a stronger interest in designing and building catamarans and many are being produced and sold in countries like the United kingdom, Italy, United States, Australia and New Zealand.

The luxury catamaran superyachts which have several crewmembers are now a far more common sight on the world’s oceans and there are a number of large cats which measure over 100ft in length. These super catamarans feature as both sailing yacht and motor yachts, private and charter yachts – there are all types represented in the large mega yacht catamarans. As the yacht owner demand for luxury sailing catamarans has increased so too has the number of companies designing and building them. Some of the companies that are involved in catamaran building and design include Yapluka, Blue Bay, Sunreef, Blue Coast, and VPLP (Van Peteghem and Lauriot Prévost).
