Articles Top 5 Catamarans For Sale

With the popularity for catamarans continuing to soar, we have compiled a list of our top five currently on the market.

Although still considered somewhat a niche product making up less than 10% of the superyacht fleet, the market for both motor and sailing catamarans has seen incredible growth in recent years. With owners favouring their high volumes, exceptional stability, and natural propensity towards sustainable yachting; their popularity continues to soar.

The versatility of the twin-hulled design with huge weather-protected cockpits, spacious foredecks, expansive flybridges, huge beach clubs with water access, ample water toy stowage with easy deployment, and shallow drafts make these vessels truly unique.

In terms of stability, catamarans have a significant edge over monohulls. The reduced roll from swell at anchor and inherent stability when at sea makes for a smoother and more comfortable experience, while superior fuel economy is afforded thanks to a more efficient underwater profile and negates the need for stabilisers. A wider beam also provides significantly more space on board, perfect for hosting events and enjoying the alfresco lifestyle.

Beyond leisure cruising in shallow waters though, today's catamarans are being primed for global expeditions. The yachting industry is exploring new avenues for sustainability with hydrogen-fuel-cells, solar, and wind producing regenerative energy through the power train at the forefront of current innovation. Providing yachting’s best suited platform to integrate these new technologies with relative ease, catamarans are here to stay.

Proud to represent a range of luxury catamarans that stand out for their innovative design and exceptional functionality, we have compiled a list of our top five currently on the market.

1 Sunreef 43m Eco: Hull No.3

After successfully finding an Owner for the first 43m SUNREEF Eco, we are now excited to introduce the latest addition to this prestigious line, Hull No.3 available for sale.

Set to be the pinnacle of sustainable yachting, SUNREEF have applied the latest green technologies to their 43m sailing catamaran, producing a yacht totally powered by the elements.

Charging the yacht’s batteries, these proprietary solar cells supply two 200 kW engines with the power to propel the yacht to an impressive 11 knot cruising speed and top speed of 14 knots completely emission-free, and unparalleled in both range and comfort.

With celebrities such as Rafael Nadal, Fernando Alonso, and Nico Rosberg lending their endorsement to this burgeoning brand, SUNREEF is making waves the yachting industry simply can’t ignore.
