Why Luxury Sailing Catamarans Create Idyllic Charters

A charter vacation is the blissful antidote to hectic lives on land, and nothing is more serene and tranquil than time spent on a sailing catamaran bobbing on the ‘big blue’ with expert crew in charge and nothing but time on your hands.

Prized for their ‘space, grace and pace’ sailing catamarans with their twin hulls offer optimal stability for liveaboard charters.


Sailing cats have major advantages over similar-sized monohulls as they have a wide beam (width) which creates a massive central platform for dining and entertaining, versatile social areas at the bow and transom, and the two hulls for abundant and private cabin space. 
 Number One

Today’s modern sailing ‘cats’ are wide-bodied with ample deck area for guests to spread out and enjoy their vacation onboard. They are stable and supremely seaworthy, making it easy for adults and kids to move around in comfort and safety. Because you are living at water-level, there’s a wonderful connection to the sea and views from every spot on the yacht.


Contemporary design innovations mean sailing cats offer many different spaces for guests to find a private nook for some dedicated ‘me time’.    


Multihulls also boast a shallower draft than monohulls, allowing charter vessels to explore remote inlets, moor close to the beach and visit more secluded bays and anchorages where the majority of vessels can’t navigate.

Designed as the ultimate adventure platform for leisure, sailing catamarans are plentiful in the charter destinations of the Greek Islands, some parts of the Mediterranean such as Italy and Croatia, the US and British Virgin Islands, Tahiti and the South Pacific.

Every private yacht charter is a personalised holiday, designed specifically for its guests’ vision of the ideal vacation.

Prior to your charter, we’ll ask you and your guests to complete a preference form. This information allows your crew to personalise your charter and covers everything from your dietary requirements and your choice of champagne, to planning your itinerary based on your preferred activities and the places you want to explore. Your Captain will design your personalised itinerary, taking into account weather and sea conditions, guest and vessel safety.

One of the great benefits of chartering your own private crewed yacht is the total flexibility it offers, cruising to your destination and moving from anchorage to anchorage at your own pace, under the guidance of your Captain.

While we offer a sample itinerary in advance of the popular highlights of the cruising area, your actual itinerary is flexible to your needs and wishes. Once on board, with your Captain’s guidance and recommendations, you can change your plans as your mood moves you. If you find somewhere you like, you may wish to linger longer. Your Captain has the final say, always keeping your safety in mind. His/ her experience is a key ingredient to you having a successful charter. 


Your Crew too are a vital ingredient in your charter vacation. With their wealth of experience and expertise, you are in good hands! Professional charter Crew are selected for their qualifications, skills and specialties.

They seek a career in charter to apply their qualifications and experience in fields as diverse as Marine Biology, Environmental Science, Engineering and of course, Culinary expertise, which is a highlight of every charter. Many charters have Crew with dive instructor accreditation, some are qualified personal trainers, masseuses or beauty therapists, and they are all hand-picked for their enthusiasm, discretion and commitment to guests.


Family and multi-generational charters are perennially popular – the ideal vacation to celebrate milestones or simply savour those special family moments we treasure forever.


A luxury charter vacation caters to the wish-list of every member of the family. Once you decide on your destination, your Luxury Charter Group charter expert will suggest vessels with the most suitable amenities and Crew with the skills and willingness to fit in with your family’s preferences.


Crew are always willing and able to teach kids new skills, from stand-up paddling to cooking. Other yachts have crew that embrace their inner child and will organise pirate-themed treasure hunts, picnics on the beach, child-oriented excursions and on-water inflatable fun under qualified supervision.
 Jet Ski

If your yearnings stretch to undersea exploration, we can find yachts with Crew who specialise in snorkelling, scuba diving and marine life who will share their passion for the underwater realm.


Your luxury yacht charter is your own private home afloat with a ratio of crew to guests much higher than on any cruise ship or hotel.

Number One 

Your crew are dedicated professionals. They will predict your needs and are eager to ensure your charter is brilliant in every aspect. These attentive Crew are always on hand, day and night, to deliver five-star service. They are also discreet and unobtrusive making this a truly private holiday. Your only job is to relax and prepare to be pampered. 


No day need be “typical” aboard your charter yacht, which is literally a private floating resort. The possibilities are almost endless, so make the most of all your charter yacht, your Crew and your destination have to offer.

Charter yachts are known for their garages loaded with watertoys such as motorised gadgets, fishing gear and inflatable islands, or even mini aqua-parks for the kids and kids at heart to clamber around. Every yacht offers different leisure toys. With knowledgeable Crew to assist you, a yacht charter is a great time to learn some new skills. Now is the time to try stand-up paddling, learn to jetski or get your heart racing skimming from the top deck, down the inflatable slide. 


On board you have your very own Chef who can personalise the cuisine to accommodate all tastes and any dietary requirements. Should you want canapes at sunset, a late brunch after a night of festivities, a 10-course degustation delight, a casual al-fresco feast or all of the above your chef will provide world-class dining with the freshest of ingredients and served according to your wishes.

Upping the fun onboard, you could host a theme-party! Your Crew are very used to keeping things interesting, and themed parties are popular with both charter guests and your creative Crew. Your Stewardesses can style your yacht in theme-appropriate decorations, complemented by cocktails, canapes and delicious dishes concocted by your Chef. 

Amada Mia

A James Bond theme is always exciting and allows guests to don their best glittery gowns and tuxedos, then there’s mermaids, pirates, Saint & Sinners – whatever you can imagine, your Crew will cater to and create an unforgettable event that your family or friends will be talking about for years to come.

Family in a Tender

For those with an appetite for adventure, your Crew will stop at nothing to entertain you. Jump in the tender and your Crew can take you on a day trip to villages or landmarks onshore, a secluded beach or pleasant bay with a reef teeming with fish and coloured corals, depending on your destination.  They'll prepare some supplies, a picnic, refreshments, snorkel gear and sunscreen while you sit back, take photos and make memories.

Kings Ransom

And if holidays for you are all about doing nothing ... an hour or two in the jacuzzi being served your special cocktails might just be your sort of heaven. Or make use of your yacht's enviable multi-media system – the latest movies and music with quality resolution and sounds in sumptuous surroundings.


One of the joys of chartering a yacht is that the schedule and demands of daily life disappear. You have plenty of time to relax over a leisurely breakfast, read, or write your own memoir, relax with the kids, enjoy the views.


There are so many activities to thrill and chill during charter, you’ll have to be reminded to simply sit and take in the passing panoramas. Then in the evenings, the spectacular sunsets and stargazing at night form some of the most magical moments of life on board.


A week-long charter is usually the minimum, but there is really no limit, depending on the charter yacht’s bookings and calendar. Some destinations are more suited to longer vacations to allow time to relax as well as travel between anchorages. Your Luxury Charter Group expert can work with you to decide all these options.
