Explore the world onboard a power catamaran charter
You don’t have to be a sailor to enjoy island hopping in the Caribbean if you vacation on one of our power catamarans. Power catamarans are easy to manoeuvre and a great option for your sailing vacation, as they provide comfortable accommodation as you explore some of our most popular cruising grounds.
So many of our customers have asked for more power catamarans in our fleet and we’re excited to announce we’ve added them to even more destinations.
Benefits of power catamaran charters
Power catamarans offer so many benefits, including:
Motor yachts are a lot faster than sail yachts. Motor yachts like the FP Maestro 37 can cruise at speeds up to 22 knots, depending on the sea conditions, which gives a great sense of freedom for thrill seekers. Sail yachts can travel around 9-10 knots and are reliant on sea and wind conditions, plus the skills of the crew.
The extra 10 knots you have on a motor yacht means you can make the most of your vacation time. You can cover distances in half the time it takes a sail yacht, making motor yachts the perfect choice for island hopping and going short distances. This is why we offer motor yacht charters at our destinations known for island hopping and line of sight sailing. Make the most of that extra time by exploring favorite islands or discovering new locations.
Two hulls are better than one if you are looking for a comfortable experience on board to dine, relax and enjoy the view
Without a mast, motor yachts are the perfect grab n’ go charter boat, as you won’t have to worry about raising or lowering sails. This means you won’t have to call your guests to be all hands on deck, but can focus on relaxing and letting the motor do the work on your power catamaran charter.
You’ll spend most of your vacation on the upper deck, the flybridge, where you have the main cockpit and all the controls. The helm has seating for two people, and the flybridge also has ample seating areas and another fridge, so you share the experience with your crew and a cold drink is always within reach.
Am I qualified to rent a power catamaran?
Our motor yacht rentals are available to be used if you have power boat experience on your bareboat sailing resume. This means they are a great way for someone who may want to charter in international waters but have yet to gain sailing experience. If you don’t have any sailing or power boat experience, we can also book a professional skipper to handle the vessel for you.

What licenses do I need to hire a yacht and sail myself?
The skipper of a yacht has primary responsibility for the safety of the crew and yacht at all times. Many destinations require just relevant experience demonstrated by a sailing resume.
To charter in the Mediterranean, it is mandatory that you hold a sailing license recognized by the local port authorities for bareboat charters in Italy, Greece, Croatia, Spain, Malta, Montenegro and Turkey. Other destinations that require a license include Madagascar, Seychelles, Thailand, Brazil and Sweden. For Belize, the port authority will issue a certificate of competency and an application is made on arrival.
You must take your proof of competency and original certificate with you on your charter. We advise you to contact our team about your qualifications and the destination requirements before booking.
By accepting the yacht contract you are confirming that you and/or members of your crew are capable and competent to sail the yacht in the conditions and cruising area of charter. We reserve the right not to hand over the yacht if, after inspection, it is the opinion that the charterer is not, or may not be competent to be in charge of the vessel.
