Sailing on a catamaran in Mallorca

A catamaran rental in Mallorca gives you the opportunity to explore the island from a different perspective and to reach even remote beaches that you get to enjoy by yourself. Yes, there are the big parties in Palma some people come to Mallorca for, but there are also secluded beaches where you can swim in turquoise waters. A wonderful holiday experience you wouldn’t want to miss!

The pros of renting a catamaran in Mallorca

One of the most amazing things about a catamaran rental in Mallorca is the fact that you can easily access all the pretty beaches and hidden coves. Catamarans have a shallow draft, making it the perfect water vehicle to explore the Mallorcan coast and its hidden treasures.

A catamaran charter in Mallorca also gives you the opportunity to sail with the winds or revert to using the engine, depending on the wind conditions. This gives you way more flexibility than you would get with a different kind of boat. You won’t ever have to worry about getting stuck in the middle of the sea should the wind suddenly stop blowing, simply use your engine.

Rent a catamaran in Mallorca if you crave a super relaxing and more luxurious kind of boat holiday. Catamarans generally come with a lot more space - on board and on deck. You can comfortably sleep in your cabin without feeling like you're stuck in a super small space on the water. You will feel more like sleeping in a lovely hotel room that might move a little.

Charter a catamaran in Mallorca if you easily get seasick. Boats shaking heavily from left to right is not a fun undertaking anyway, but having a sensitive stomach can make it even worse. Standing on two hulls gives catamarans a lot more stability than other types of boats. You won’t feel it moving as much either. While you might hear the water hitting the bridge between the two hulls louder as the wind picks up, you still won’t really feel it when staying on board the catamaran.

The cons of renting a catamaran in Mallorca

One of the downsides of a catamaran charter in Mallorca is the fact that catamarans are quite big. Well, definitely bigger than other types of boats. This can pose some difficulties when trying to find a mooring spot at one of the marinas - especially during the busy summer months when the marinas are crowded and one yacht after the other tries to squeeze into their designated spot.
