READERS’ SPOTS : Life’s good in a cat...

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

“150 miles between the north of Sardinia and the south of Corsica; the playground this cruising area offers could keep us occupied for a whole summer, but we savored this holiday over 2 weeks of exceptional weather conditions! There were 10 of us aboard (6 teenagers and 4 adults) and despite just one forepeak being fitted out on our Lagoon 440, we never suffered from overcrowding. Apart from the spacious cabins, the catamaran’s three living areas (forward and aft cockpits, plus the flybridge) allowed everyone to find their place. All that obliged us to go into a harbor were the constraints linked to provisioning and filling up with water, otherwise we preferred the anchorages, of which there is no lack in this corner of the Mediterranean. The days passed to the rhythm of relaxing, swimming, discovering aperitifs and encounters. And how could we not think about what life aboard a catamaran could be like once our children are independent but...we’re thinking about it!”

Last summer, Etienne set off in a Lagoon 440 catamaran chartered from Sunsail, between Sardinia and Corsica. This photo was taken in the Cala Lunga anchorage on the island of Razzoli – in the Maddalena archipelago.

"Summer, from November through April, means wonderful, sunny days, crystal clear waters and a sea temperature of 28 degrees Celsius. Sailing with the family in light winds, spear fishing, the seabed is like something out of a National Geographic film, and we can contemplate nature on deserted beaches."

Catamaran in Brazil on a Lagoon 450

Carolini is cruising aboard a Lagoon 450 in Brazil, and the secret spot in question is on Ilha Grande, not far from Rio de Janeiro... The anchorage is called ‘Angra dos Reis’.


Some catamaran builders have a geographical situation which is pleasanter than others... Catathai is based in Thailand, at Phuket, and here is what the anchorage looks like after a launch.

“Taking advantage of a suitable tide, we carried out a few launches.
Fair winds to all these sailors, whether they are staying in the waters of the Andaman Sea, for the Catathai 34s, or setting off around the world, for their blue water cruise on Catathai 40/43s”.
