An All-encompassing Guide To Buying Catamaran

The catamaran has always attracted sailing enthusiasts, but technological up-gradation in speed and agility have expanded its appeal and usage for commercial purposes as well. The advancement of the modern catamaran from basic ocean-going Polynesian double canoe to the striking multihulls has picked up the pace even more, with all current innovation in composite materials and structure.

Fast Ferries

Atypical designs allow catamarans to sail speedily in shallower water bodies, with less crew management team and less wind as compared to other sailing vessels.

Why is a catamaran a better option to buy?

Among several high speed ferries for sale, catamarans are one of the better options to purchase. A catamaran heels only 5 to 10 degrees while sailing as compared to a standard keel ballasted boat which heels 30 to 45. The comfort level that results from catamaran is felt in many ways. As these vessels have a shallow draft, they can enter shallower anchorages. The shallow draft range from one foot to six feet, based on the size and whether it has dagger boards or mini-keels. Besides, there are several safety features in a catamaran. They have positive buoyancy due to wood or /and foam construction, and various watertight compartments. This implies that even it leaks and flooded by collision, a catamaran vessel will continue to float.

Commercial vessels have used the advantages of power catamaran for many years. Since their inception, the length of catamarans has escalated from 20 meters to 115 meters.

How to choose the right catamaran under the preferred price range?

Any offer has several elements to be looked after in a contract. That is why a ship broker is necessary to make the buying and selling process simple and quick. Price is important backed up by deposit, followed by proper dates of agreement and the terms.

Price

Price should be determined by the overall condition of the vessel including main engines running hours, her class status and market value of similar ships. There is always some room for negotiation. The initial offer price should be a figure that the buyers find comfortable with and it should revolve around current market values. If a previously owned vessel is to be purchased, there will be sections and areas that will require renovation. It may take multiple counters to arrive at an agreed price.

Terms

  1. Personal inspection: Before accepting the vessel, self inspection grants the right to call off the contract if anything doesn’t seem right.
  2. Survey: A professional marine surveyor can inspect the vessel and certify technical condition and seaworthiness. A full report of any drawbacks and deficiencies of the vessel will be presented after the inspection
  3. Sea Trial on the day of survey: A quick test sailing with the surveyor on-board will give a real indication of how the vessel will perform and sail. This can also be evidenced by studying the vessel’s log books
