Luxury Catamarans
Luxury catamarans are increasing in popularity worldwide, both for yacht charters and as private yachts, as newer and better catamarans are being designed and built. Catamarans are still predominantly sailing yachts, by number, although there are some important larger motor yachts that are being designed and built, chartered and sold.

Top 12 luxury catamarans for charter

June 21, 2017

Written by Rachael Steele

When the subject of sailing yachts is brought up, the general image conjured is that of a strikingly dark, sleek monohull with pure white sails billowing against blue skies. Most newcomers to sailing will also imagine a grand, historic yacht from centuries past – and for that reason the modern catamaran, while just as romantic, remains on the sidelines to receive little, if any attention.

Yet the advantages of sailing a catamaran particularly stand out on a luxury charter holiday: a shallower draft allows your party to venture closer to the exquisite secluded beaches, and an above waterline hull makes for bright and ventilated interiors without the reliance on air conditioning to shift the air flow. The wide beam of a catamaran often reduces the amount of unwanted noise filtering from living spaces into cabins, not to mention providing larger living spaces overall.

As for the modern element, the photos below will attest to the level of sophistication these contemporary interiors receive from globally known designers. Before you head off on your next grand adventure, take a look at these 12 fantastic vessels all built within the last decade, and uncover the unsung allure of catamarans.

There’s even a motor yacht among all those sails.

Lagoon is the world leader among modern catamaran builders, celebrating the launch of its 100th hull in May this year. Sailing yacht ENIGMA was built in 2013 and the immaculate interior contains a spacious living room surrounded in all directions by windows or glass doors that lead out onto the aft deck, where the shaded outdoor lounging area provides alfresco dining and sun-touched seating for the best place to relax with hobbies while taking in the watercolour surroundings.

Up on the bridge deck is the cockpit, where guests can spread out on the sunpads or sunbathe on the aft deck.

Luxury catamaran ENIGMA comes with an impressive selection of water toys, including adult and child water skis, kayaks, 2 x paddleboards, a wakeboard, snorkelling gear and diving equipment for Rendezvous diving.

For ease of access to the water with all the water toys, there are two swim platforms and a ladder.

The Caribbean can be your playground at any time of the year with catamaran LADY KATLO: Following her 2013 refit she boasts a beautiful interior and exterior salon designed for family and friends charters of up to 6 people. With fewer cabins comes greater space and when guests return from trekking around the Grenadines or swimming and shopping in the BVIs, the cabins will feel more like a personal retreat than a cubbyhole containing a bed.

For entertainment, a media library and games consoles for entertaining the kids while sailing to your next destination, and the water toys selection contains water skis, a wakeboard and snorkelling equipment for family fun in the sun.

There is a piano, guitar and djembe on board for live music and when out on the water superyacht LUCY Z has everything guests need to learn how to kitesurf or select from plenty of other water toys.

Luxury expedition catamaran Open Ocean launched

July 27, 2016

Written by Rachael Steele

The largest ever power catamaran ever launched in South Africa, 25m/82ft OPEN OCEAN is stocked full of features both in terms of entertainment and design. Built for transatlantic journeys, OPEN OCEAN brings together exceptional beauty and engineering. The following is a press release from Two Oceans Marine Manufacturing and Du Toit Yacht Design.

Press Release

Two Oceans Marine Manufacturing and Du Toit Yacht Design launch the Open Ocean 800 Luxury Expedition Catamaran

Du Toit Yacht Design has recently launched the Open Ocean 800 Luxury Expedition Catamaran.

Luxury expedition catamaran OPEN OCEAN

Luxury expedition catamaran OPEN OCEAN

This impressive catamaran is expertly built by Two Oceans Marine Manufacturing and designed by Du Toit Yacht Design, both of Cape Town, South Africa. The Du Toit Yacht Design team and Two Oceans Marine Manufacturing are renowned as industry leaders and specialists in building custom designed, luxury catamarans with a build quality and attention to detail that is exemplary.

Ultra Vires, the Open Ocean 800 Expedition Catamaran, is the largest of the cats in Two Ocean Marine’s Open Ocean series and the largest power catamaran ever to be launched in South Africa.  Powered by two Cummins 228 kW/305 HP motors, she is robustly build for transatlantic voyages and is capable of motoring long distances economically; independently or towing another 50 foot boat. She is built to cross oceans effortlessly and with speed, and to have a motoring range of around 4,500 nautical miles.

Design on this impressive catamaran took many months, with four designers involved at various stages in drawing up the design for the interiors, lines, structure and mechanical details, in consultation with the owner and builder, Two Oceans Marine Manufacturing, at all stages of the project.

Luxury catamaran OPEN OCEAN - Saloon

Luxury catamaran OPEN OCEAN – Saloon

The Open Ocean 800 E was designed as an on-the- water home for a kite boarding and surfing family to chase the perfect kite boarding and surfing conditions. Ultra Vires has ample storage space for kites, kite boards and surf boards.

Ultra Vires is expertly built in a sandwich construction, using epoxy E-glass with a PVC foam core.

She is an elegant yacht with beautiful lines and intricate features. The interiors have been designed for effortless ocean living as the easily accessible spaces are open and free-flowing. Ultra Two Oceans Marine Manufacturing/Du Toit Yacht Design Media Release Vires’ interior is predominantly wood and monochrome. The interior layout, furniture design and finishes were done by Du Toit Yacht Design and the décor and design by designer Hanno de Swardt.

She boasts a spacious saloon and galley, with all the comforts one could ask for on a luxury holiday: air conditioning, sound system, TV and a DVD player in the saloon. In addition there is also plenty of refrigeration and freezer space and appliances such as an ice-maker, microwave, coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and a gas oven and hob in the galley area. The galley forms part of the spacious main saloon area which includes a state-of- the-art navigation station.

The atmosphere on the Open Ocean 800E is relaxed; guests can even join in on meal preparation, while enjoying a cold beverage after a day of fishing or playing on the water.

Ultra Vires has two spacious aft cockpits – one upper and one lower – both protected from the sun and the elements. On the lower deck one will find comfortable and stylish, custom-made outdoor furniture and a bar area with a built-in braai and a fridge. The boat is helmed from the main command centre on the upper cockpit on the flybridge and also houses comfortable custom-made outdoor loungers.

Luxury catamaran OPEN OCEAN - Main suite

Luxury catamaran OPEN OCEAN – Main suite

The very practical accommodation is luxurious and comfortable: Ultra Vires has two cabins in each hull, each cabin having its own entry way from the saloon and galley area and en-suite heads with a vanity and shower. The two fore cabins on the boat can be made up as a double bed or as two single beds. Ultra Vires has crew accommodation in each hull for two crew members; each cabin with double bunks, a heads and a shower.

The seemingly endless decks are beautifully finished in teak and around every turn on the elegantly laid out exterior, is another toy. SUPs, a jetski and a smaller RIB/tender can be found on the foredeck, and a large davit which holds a 21’ RIB/tender on the aft deck. This also provides some privacy on the aft cockpit when the boat is moored stern to.

The Open Ocean 800 Luxury Expedition Catamaran is a great success due to close collaboration between the boat builder and designer, working with the owner at every step of the project, in order to create a flawless ocean-going vessel and home. Two Oceans Marine and Du Toit Yacht Design have shown this to be true once again, with Ultra Vires being the perfect example.

Testimonials

“Our stay on Ombre Blu was fantastic. Mellissa and Francesco were super hosts and expert seamen all rolled into one. The facilities on the boat were wonderful… 2 of our party went diving. I swam more than I have in the last 20 years….. and feel better for it. Melissa arranged a mixture of marina berths and lying at anchor so that we sometimes would eat aboard and sometimes in the port.”

EAGLE WINGS – the Christening Ceremony

EAGLE WINGS is a striking custom-made sailing catamaran, measuring 68 feet with a living space of 300 square metres. The yacht was finally handed over to her owners on the last day of the event, during a christening ceremony, where they were joined by their friends and family.

The first Sunreef Supreme 68 attracted plenty of visitors as well as the attending press. The yacht boasts a new radical concept of superstructure, which allows the saloon and exterior deck to be on the same level. This results in a huge main saloon surrounded by floor to ceiling glass – a smooth, seamless area opening onto the cockpit and providing direct access to the deck through sliding doors on both sides of the yacht. All the areas of the vessel merge into one panoramic lounging and dining area.

EAGLE WINGS, just as all the Supreme 68 yachts will, features an aft garage, which stores a 5-metre tender, up to two jet skis, diving gear and sails. When the garage door is lowered to the same lever as the yacht’s aft platform, it created a fabulous outdoor lounging and sunbathing area. All models of the Sunreef Supreme series are fully customised in terms of layouts and finishings.
