Like the big cats of the Animal Kingdom, there are three main production builders of large catamarans (over 50′).
Lagoon and Fountaine Pajot have constantly pushed the boundaries in size and design. Lagoon offers the 52, 560 and 620 and Fountaine Pajot the Saba 50, Ipanema 58 and Victoria 67.
Sunreef (which also started in France and now built in Poland) also have a large market share and specialise in catamarans above 58′. Models include the Sunreef 58, 60, 74, 80, 82 and 92 in sailing catamarans and in Power catamarans 60-90′ models. A new 210′ power trimaran is also offered (Sunreef Yachts website).
These vessels are more and more appealing to world cruisers who would once have only had the comparable option of a 60 – 100′ monohull motor cruiser and can now have superior space and economy.
In charter we can offer a variety of big cats – Lagoon 620’s in Turkey and Sunreef 70’s in Greece and France. Rates begin at $4500 per night and include 4 crew with accommodation for 10 – 12 in 5/6 cabins – Call it $750 per couple per night – which can easily be a nice hotel room – worth considering if you want to be treated like royalty.
