Cruising Catamarans & Trimarans For Sale

Cruising Catamarans For Sale

Cruising catamarans offer possibly the best way to travel among the 7100+ islands of the Philippine archipelago. The shallow draft of most catamarans means they can get you into bays and river estuaries that would not be possible with a conventional sailing yacht.

Other advantages of cruising catamarans are that they typically offer more living space than conventional monohull yachts of similar length, making them also spacious liveaboard alternatives. Plus, they make for more stable platforms for launching and retrieving scuba divers, snorkelers and kiteboarders. This all makes cruising catamarans the perfect boats for yacht charter.

There are cruising catamaran builders in Cebu and Dumaguete that have been building yachts for two decades or more. Mostly these catamarans are built using top-grade marine ply, encapsulated in fibreglass or epoxy, making them easy to maintain. Catamarans and trimarans, built in fibreglass, Kevlar and carbon fibre, are made to special order by specialty boat builders in Subic Bay and Clark.

The only real downside to catamarans is that they are usually cost close to twice the price of a monohull cruising yacht, for the same length overall (LOA). This is also why yacht charter fees are typically higher for catamarans than for monohulls or even trimarans.

Listed here are cruising catamarans (and trimarans) for sale for cruising (and racing) in the Philippines. Many are suitable for longer voyages and some have sailed here from as far away and the U.S.A., Australia and Europe; many are also suitable to be put into service as charter yachts.

Trimarans For Sale

From a usability standpoint, trimarans offer the same primary advantage as catamarans insomuch as they are typically shallow draft and can get you into bay and estuaries that would be off limits for monohull sailing yachts. Trimarans offer the added advantage of being able to "point" (sail closer to the angle of wind) better than catamarans and will frequently get you to your destination faster than either a monohull sailing yacht or a catamaran.

more . . .

Trimarans have not caught on as fast as catamarans for cruising because they usually do not provide as much living space, being more like a conventional sailing yacht in this respect - with the living area limited to the main hull (the amas typically being used for additional storage space for light but bulky items). However, on many trimarans you will find trampolines between the hull and the amas - great for lazing by the beach and imbibing the beauty of Mother Nature.

There is a trimaran builder in Clark that specializes in the manufacture of trailerable, FARRIER trimarans, which are built under license and exported worldwide.

Most people invest in a trimaran (in preference to catamarans and monohulls) because they enjoy everything else about the sport of sailing but they also want to go fast.
