Power catamarans, also known as “Power Cats,” are growing in popularity in the British Virgin Islands and Bahamas charter market. We are seeing more “power cats” being built for both the bareboat and crewed charter market. Two of the main power catamaran builders with boats in the charter market are Sunreef Yachts and Horizon.
Power Catamaran Charter Features
Like sailing catamarans, charter guests enjoy power cats for many reasons, including:
- Flybridge with 360-degree views
- Flat decks with trampolines on the foredeck
- Covered cockpit areas so the outdoors can be enjoyed out of the sun
- Spacious cabins
- Main deck saloon areas leading out to the cockpit/lounge area
- Easy water access
- Low fuel consumption combined with good performance
- Crewed boats with 2 – 3 crew members
- Ability to anchor in shallow waters closer to the beaches
Charter rates in the Caribbean range from $29,500/week for 6 guests inclusive on the Horizon PC60s to $39,500/week plus expenses (approx. 25% APA) for 8 guests on the Sunreef 70 Skylark.
With many of these boats having similar accommodations it is easy for large groups to charter multiple boats knowing that the quality is similar.
SEA BOSS and LA MANGUITA are two of the British Virgin Islands-based power cats that are great for tandem charters. Both are Horizon PC60s sleeping 6 guests in three staterooms. There is a master with a king bed, a VIP with a queen bed as well as 2 twin beds in the third stateroom. Both boats are crewed with a wide array of water toys.
On a tandem charter, guests benefit from having two boats that can be varied in their usage during the day. One group can go off fishing, while the other group can enjoy the spa ashore, rafting up in the evenings.
Power Catamaran Charters BVI
The British Virgin Islands are an ideal charter destination for power catamarans. The islands are relatively close and many have multiple anchorages where you can get close to the shore. On a BVI power catamaran charter, you can visit most of the British Virgin Islands over the course of a week’s vacation. These power catamarans are modern, well designed, and decorated with experienced crews who know the cruising grounds. A comfortable cruise on a power catamaran is the perfect way to enjoy the beauty of the British Virgin Islands.
