With people becoming more adventurous and curious about traveling to other locations, there has been a significant growth in the number of tourists wanting a unique and luxury experience abroad. This has also sparked a curiosity in many individuals to visit top destinations like Greece, which is globally recognised for its luxury holiday ventures. 

Indeed, as there has been a dwindling in the amount of people who are interested in city breaks, they are becoming more inclined to visit exotic locations to relax. In this sense, whilst they want to experience a hassle-free holiday, they also want to retain a high level of autonomy and independence in their trip. In this light, people are opting to charter a yacht as a way of being able to tick Greece off their bucket list—and experience so much of what Greece has to offer. In particular, a crewed Catamaran experience is a perennial favorite amongst tourists heading to Greece. The Catamaran is notable for being a twin-hull boat with two equally-sized hulls placed side by side. This type of vessel is powered by engines, sails, or a combination of the two. In fact, it is easier than ever to charter a yacht and organize the sailing experience of a lifetime by clicking on Borrowaboat; digital booking services have made the entire planning process simpler and more efficient than ever. 

There are a multitude of reasons why this type of boat is the preferred way of sailing for many tourists, especially in Greece. Firstly, it is well recognized for its efficiency and speed. Catamarans are the most common kind of multihull boat and can actually sail 50% faster than sailing vessels, even in treacherous weather conditions. This is perfect for those tourists who are seeking to visit many areas of Greece and not be limited to the one location. It is a great way to experience all that the country has to offer, whilst not worrying about sorting out or returning to your accommodation.

Secondly, the Catamaran is extremely attractive to tourists as it is spacious. It caters to both small and larger groups by providing space for entertainment, dining, and a place to bond with your family and friends. This is because the two different hulls of a catamaran can usually offer up to double the amount of social space than a monohull of the same length. The two hulls of a catamaran also provide natural stability whilst you are sailing, and they don’t necessitate the presence of stabilisers. This is perfect for those passengers who can find themselves being seasick, as it creates smoother cruising in unpredictable and bad weather conditions, as well a flatter terrain to facilitate those who are not used to taking part in a sailing experience. There are also a number of ways that those on board can entertain themselves. Some Catamarans are equipped with WIFI, which helps keeps those on board to be connected to the outside world while they are sailing. There is also the option for passengers to bring their own forms of entertainment, i.e., various board games or reading material. Of course, there is also beautiful scenery before them and panoramic views, instead of being in a dark and confined room as with most hotels.

Chartering a Catamaran is a perfect way of visiting all of the various islands and areas of Greece that have garnered your interest. One of the most popular activities to do in Greece is to watch the sunset on Santorini. It truly is a magical and rewarding experience that you can tick off of your bucket list.
