In Lanzarote, catamaran sailing is possible during nearly the whole year, as the temperatures are between 20 and 30 degrees. Rent a sailing catamaran and spend Easter or Christmas on the Atlantic Ocean as you like. You can also make a detour to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura.
What is a catamaran?
A catamaran is a ship with two hulls that are connected by a deck. This makes the ship wider than normal monohulls of the same size. In addition, a catamaran does not have a keel and is therefore much faster on the water. The motor catamaran has to be distinguished from the sailing catamaran. A motor catamaran is often used for ferry trips because motor catamarans are faster than normal ferries. A motor catamaran with about 200 seats can go up to 80 km/h.
Sailing catamarans are used for regattas and holiday trips. Flit across the Atlantic Ocean with these fast two-hull ships and enjoy the wind and freedom out at sea.
What is special about sailing catamarans on Lanzarote?
With a sailing catamaran you can be very sporty. If you have a sailing license and you are good at sailing a catamaran, there is nothing to stop you from renting a catamaran exclusively and exploring the sea. Even without a sailing license you can enjoy catamaran sailing. Just hire a skipper in addition.
How safe is catamaran sailing in Lanzarote?
A catamaran is very stable in the water because of its two hulls. So nothing can happen to you. If you have rented a boat with a skipper, you can rest assured, because every skipper knows the boats he drives like the back of his hand.
Where can I rent a catamaran in Lanzarote?
