Powered catamaran yacht charter sailing

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.

Available destinations

Bahamas

Caribbean

Mediterranean

South Pacific

Benefits of power catamaran charters

Power catamarans offer so many benefits, including:

Power

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.

Efficiency

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.

Stability

Two hulls are better than one if you are looking for a comfortable experience on board to dine, relax and enjoy the view

Relaxation

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.

Social spaces


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.

Take a look at our booking policy

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.

How can I check fleet availability or make a reservation?

You can check our fleet availability on our website. If you wish to add a skipper or need help and advice, you can contact us.

Are their child or age restrictions?

There are no restrictions.

Where do you offer bareboat charters?

We have +50 destinations worldwide and a wide range of yachts, including the Caribbean, Bahamas, Pacific, Indian Ocean, Asia and the Americas.

Excellent. Very professional and great service!

Thomas

Just what we needed coming out of a year of lockdown, to see new places and connect with nature. Highly recommended for your next sailing adventure!

Johan

Excellent cruise and very good stay. Skipper attentive, very pleasant and very professional.

Maxime

Just returned from another fantastic sailing week at your base in Pula and I would like to thank everyone involved for making this possible on such short notice and without any problems.

Mathias

Croatia Bareboat

The marina itself is a perfect starting point with great facilities! The Lagoon 42 was in good condition and the skipper was amazing and very knowledgeable of the area.”

Jonathan

Spain Skippered

What an AMAZING experience. We’ve just returned from a week long skippered charter from Corfu, sailing around the beautiful islands of the Ionian. Paxos, Antipaxos and Corfu Old Town were beautiful and the secluded bays we had the pleasure of visiting thanks to our local skipper, Nicholas, were simply overwhelming. Fly and flops are no longer for us – we’ll be chartering with DYC for the foreseeable future.

David

Greece Skippered

Our group of 10 had an AMAZING time in French Polynesia from May 21-28, 2022! The food was amazing, our captain and chef, husband and wife: Henry and Mehee (sp), were incredible and the whole experience on board was a dream! We can’t wait to book another trip through DYC

DYC provided a great sailing experience for my extended family on 2 monos out of Scrub Island. The boats were in great shape and preformed perfectly and the staff were friendly and helpful. Having worked for a number of charter companies over the years DYC is one of the best.

Charlie

British Virgin Islands Bareboat

Baja is my favorite place now. There was something for everyone: sailed under northerlies with mostly calm evenings, snorkeled, fished, bummed it on the sandy beaches, enchanted by pelicans feeding, greeted by the barking sea lions and explored the Ispiritu Santo island geology. DYC La Paz base provided competent professional support with a well provisioned and maintained boat. We were nourished well by an onboard cook arranged with DYC freeing us all for more play. A vacation and an adventure connected with nature.

Thomas

France Bareboat

We had an incredible trip and actually got engaged on the first night of our sail! We will certainly be back one day. Thank you for getting us ready for our charter. We were definitely beginners but he gave us a very thorough but very easy to follow training and it gave us a lot of confidence.

The on board experience was way beyond our expectations. Isabelle provided exceptional three course meals. We could not believe her creativity and delicious meals. Thomas was an excellent skipper. He was always on the lookout for our needs. Thanks guys!” Spira, New Caledonia bareboat with crew charter
