If you’re a power enthusiast and looking for a neat way to cruise the BVI, look for a nice new power catamaran. Gone are the days of the tired Tarquin and Fairline monohulls and of course the trawlers are all gone too except for a couple of older Marine Traders. Even if you are a Grand Banks trawler die-hard, take a long hard look at the new fleets of Powercats that are now available.
There are some brand new cats available from MarineMax Vacations that are available, the Aquila MM 443 and now the MM484 . They will be available in our fleet from a very reliable operating company that has recently become active in the BVI cat market.
Of course you can check out the bareboat and fully crewed powercats on our new website at www.americanyacht.net where we have a fine selection from the Moorings and other good reliable operating companies. To see all Moorings powercat offerings: see the Moorings 39′ and Moorings 47′ cats made in South Africa and many others.
The advantages of catamarans, both power and sail, are their draft which allows you to come close into the beach and lessens the risk of going aground and doing some serious damage. More importantly, however, power cats usually have a generator and air conditioning and have LOTS AND LOTS of living space both inside and out.
If you’re on the market for a powercat charter contact us. If you’re looking to purchase a catamaran for the purpose of putting her into charter you should talk to one of the excellent operating companies that call the BVI home.
If you’d like to charter your boat from a port on the mainland or even the US Virgin Islands, you could also look at one of the domestic producers like Horizon Power Catamarans. The Horizons start at 58 ‘ and run up to 76’.
The PC58 has enormous interior space that offers three large en-suite cabins which includes a lavish master stateroom with a 180 degree panoramic view on the main deck level, the salon, gourmet galley and bar are seamlessly integrated accommodating a myriad of entertainment venues plus the option of an open flybridge or enclosed pilothouse. Its innovative design has impressed even the most discerning yachting enthusiasts. The PC 58 offers the owner good value for their investment.
The PC58 has garnered a lot of attention today and proved to be a great success with its first appearance at the 2011 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
This Horizon Yacht PC58 is a 58-foot catamaran which definitely fits the requirements of most sailors. On the company website, individuals can read reviews of the PC58 which are excellent. This mega yacht offers space with power catamaran fuel efficiency and performance.
Handling and performance features have been highly commended. When it comes to performance, the PC58 has balanced semi-displacement hulls and has evolved to the PC60 to accommodate the new ZF 4000 series POD drives.
