Origin of the Catamaran
Catamarans were “invented” by an aristocratic fishing community on the southern coast of Tamil Nadu, India. However, in terms of leisure and sailing, catamarans are a relatively recent trend.
To become today a popular boat, this type of boat had to overcome a strong skepticism on the part of those navigators more oriented to a traditional navigation.
Catamaran vs. Monohull
Catamaran rentals have become very popular due to several important features. Charter catamarans are much safer than monohulls. Practically, they can not sink. Due to the great dynamism it has, the whole ship acts as a kind of raft.
Catamarans have great maneuverability, as most catamarans have two engines and are much easier to dock than a single engine monocoque. Modern catamarans can do a 360-degree turn in their own length.
Although monohulls have certain advantages when it comes to anchoring in marinas, catamarans can anchor in shallow bays, often very close to a beach (a few meters deep).
When renting a catamaran you get more space than you get with a boat. After all, the staterooms, rest areas and gratings are divided into two hulls. In addition, there is more space on the deck and the cabin of a catamaran is twice as large as that of a monocoque. A larger space allows for more privacy.

Catamarans have also become a favorite rental option because of their great stability. The navigation is done from one level since catamarans seldom bow. When they do, they do so at a maximum of 5 degrees, whereas monohull sailboats usually do so at 25 degrees. Sure, the 25-degree heel can be exciting, but it’s also very exhausting.
When sailing on a catamaran, you can walk, sit, eat, drink … Whatever you want. However, the most important advantage of navigation with this balance, is that there is less possibility of dizziness.
