Rent a catamaran in Fuerteventura

Pros of renting a catamaran in Fuerteventura

A catamaran charter in Fuerteventura is great for anyone who wants to enjoy the flexibility and fun of sailing on a sailboat, but prefers the comfort of a motorboat. Catamarans have both a sail and an engine, making them extremely flexible. You don’t have to rely on the wind as much as you would with another type of boat.

Another advantage of a catamaran rental in Fuerteventura is the fact that they are a lot more comfortable and spacious than other types of boats. Standing on two hulls allows for more space on board and on deck, making you feel like you’re in a hotel room rather than on board a boat in a little cabin.

Cons of renting a catamaran in Fuerteventura

Although there are very many advantages to renting a catamaran in Fuerteventura, there are also some downsides to it. Catamarans are quite big in size which might come with some difficulties when trying to find a spot for mooring. And even if you are lucky enough to secure a spot for mooring at the marinas, you might struggle to get there. Catamarans are definitely not easy to maneuver in small and narrow spots. Plus: It will most likely cost you extra - after all, you’re taking up more space than a regular sized boat.

Another downside of chartering a catamaran in Fuerteventura can be the fact that catamarans are not as fast as other types of boats. The fact that they are lighter can slow them down significantly.

Pros of renting a sailboat in Fuerteventura

Cons of renting a sailboat in Fuerteventura

One of the downsides of a sailboat charter in Fuerteventura is equally one of the advantages: You can only sail with the wind.
