velier vs catamaran

When it comes to holidays, there are a lot of questions and many challenges, even more so in these times,

when our safety, as well as our family’s and friends’ is the most important element in configuring the perfect stay of this season.

Yachting holidays become more and more interesting and attractive, offering a genuine alternative to a conventional holiday, at the same time being more and more affordable, given the increasing international accessibility of yachts.

This question, however, arises – what is the right type of boat for me? What are the main differences and advantages for each of them? Why are some more affordable?

In a nutshell, what do I get for the money I pay?

Sailboats and catamarans are among the safest and most stable boats and as this industry develops, manufacturers of these spectacular boats have made many readjustments and optimizations in terms of design and comfort, consistent with the clients’ wishes and needs.

Most boats in Pikasea’s portfolio are boats with 4 double cabins, 3 or 4 toilets and showers. At the same time, all boast a generous lounge and a fully equipped and fitted kitchen, so that your holidays are as pleasant as possible.

The major differences between the two occur in terms of comfort.

  • From a design perspective, catamarans have more space, more generous common areas and many private areas. Comfort also comes with an increased price, which, depending on the boat model and the chosen period, can vary between 30% and 60%.
  • The sailboat (monohull) however, has some magical coordinates, that catamarans failed to capture. It has a dreamy dynamic that makes you enjoy every wave, connecting you much more with the sea and the wind, and really gives you that strong feeling of freedom and liberation that we all so fiercely sought.

Sailboats are suitable for groups of friends and families who share the same joys. They offer a feeling of intimacy and warmth that is difficult to put into words.

For your first time out to sea, ensuring a balanced value for money, we’d recommend a sailing trip, even more so if you’re with the right people. You can subsequently go for an “upgrade” in terms of comfort and enjoy the catamaran experience. If, however, having more space is an essential coordinate for you, the catamaran provides everything you need.
