Multi-hulled catamarans can be sail or motor powered, and have a greater speed and stability than single hulled vessels. Small catamarans are suitable for daytime yacht charters, whereas the larger “mega” catamarans often feature a fly bridge and cabin, and can be used for longer excursions. Catamarans, or \\\'cats\\\' as they are often called, a twin or tri-hulled vessels that can be powered by either sail or motor. These versatile watercraft are noted for both their speed and stability in open water. The V shaped hulls of most catamarans mean that the vessels appear to glide over the surface, with only a few inches of the hulls underwater. Sailing catamarans are popular racing vessels, while power catamarans are more typically used for vacation charters. High end power cats are tricked out with all the amenities of a luxury yacht. Vacationers can choose between a bareboat charter (for which no crew or meals are provided - recommended only for experienced cat handlers), skippered charters, or fully crewed charters complete with a professional gourmet chef, luxury accommodations, and daily on and off board activities. Some of the most popular destinations for a catamaran charter are the BVI (British Virgin Islands), other Caribbean islands, and the Mediterranean, where watersports such as snorkeling, diving, wake-boarding and tubing can be enjoyed amidst the beauty of tropical islands. Guests can also spend time on gleaming white sand beaches, visit harbor towns for fine dining and clubbing, or shop in local villages. Catamarans for charter are typically more than 40 feet long and can be much larger - particularly motor powered craft. This provides plenty of space for sleeping, lounging and dining as well as room for a large galley and other amenities.
