Yacht/Vessel Specifications

Once you have the answers to the above questions, you can dive into more specific matters:

  • Based on the size of your crew, the number of desired cabins, and the budget, decide on the size of the sailboat, catamaran, or motorboat.
    • Sailboats usually have 3, 4, or 5 cabins and a salon that can be converted into a single or double bed.
    • Catamarans usually have 4 (slightly larger) cabins and a salon that can also be converted into a single or double bed. In addition, larger catamarans have a skipper and chef/hostess cabin in the front.
  • According to preferences, decide on the age (year) of the vessel and the shipyard (brand). Similar to cars, yacht brands are also ranked based on quality and manufacturing. In the world of yachting, there is an unwritten rule:

HANSE DUFOUR (Grand Large) ELAN (Impression) BAVARIA (Bavaria Cruiser) BENETEAU (Oceanis) JEANNEAU (Sun Odyssey)

  • Finally, decide on the additional amenities you want on board. Modern yachts offer a wide selection of different options; from kitchen appliances (coffee maker, ice maker, toaster, etc.) to sailing accessories (Code-0, Gennaker, Spinnaker, etc.). Various water toys (SUP, diving equipment, JETSKI, etc.) are also available.
