The Maldives is a large archipelago in the Indian Ocean south of India and Sri Lanka, more than a thousand large and small islets and atolls. The nature here is unique like nothing else. And in order to experience all the beauty here and get to remote places, you will need suitable transport, which is why yacht rental in the Maldives is so popular and in demand. There is a well-developed infrastructure and a fairly large fleet of ships, so there should be no problems with renting a yacht in the Maldives. So, in this article we will look at how to choose a yacht for rent, and what advantages it gives.

Benefits of yacht charter in Maldives

So, let's take a look at what opportunities yacht charter in this country gives you:
  • Visiting all sights. The Maldives is more than a thousand islets that can only be reached by water or air. There are simply no other options. If you do not rent any private transport, you will not see even a tenth of all the beauty that is here.
  • Availability. A 4-day yacht tour can cost you $ 3,500-4,000 (small yacht), and you will visit all the most interesting places. As for the only available alternative - a seaplane, renting it will cost you at least several times more, so we can say that renting a yacht in the Maldives is a budget solution (compared to renting an airplane).
  • Unique sensations. If you have never sailed on a yacht before, we advise you to give it a try. You will get a lot of new impressions and pleasant emotions. By renting a yacht in the Maldives, you will feel like a real discoverer, discovering more and more new islands literally every day.
  • An opportunity to spend time interestingly with relatives and friends. The yacht, or catamaran, can accommodate from 5 to 20 people, so this is a great opportunity to spend time together, have a party, take pictures, etc. Everything here is limited only by your imagination. In addition, you and your friends will remember such a vacation for a long time.
Now let's look at the question of choosing the optimal vessel.

Choosing a boat for charter in the Maldives

All those boats, large and small, that you can rent in the Maldives can be classified into one of two classes: yachts and catamarans. Both have strengths and weaknesses. So that you can choose the best option for yourself, consider the following table:
  • Cost. Due to the fact that the yacht is smaller and narrower than the catamaran, and the ship itself is cheaper, so renting it will also cost you less.
  • Controllability. The yacht can sail very dynamically, turn quickly, heel, and accelerate. From the point of view of handling, it is more interesting.
  • Mooring. The yacht is narrower and more maneuverable. Accordingly, it will be easier for you to find a place to moor in the marina, plus it will cost less.
  • Spaciousness and good layout. All cabins are spaced apart, on the same level, well insulated. The area of the catamaran is much larger than that of the yacht with the same length.
  • Stability at sea. Due to their design, catamarans are much more stable than yachts. This is great news for those who are seasick.
  • Little sediment. Here in the Maldives, this is an important advantage, thanks to which you can come close to the shallow water.
  • Safety. The catamaran has a very high buoyancy. It will not roll over and drown even in a violent storm.
  • Less space. With the same length, the yacht will always be much smaller, in all respects, and therefore less comfortable.
  • Roll and rocking. The yacht heels and rocks a lot more on the waves. This is especially noticeable during a storm.
  • Draft. The yacht has a much higher draft, so in shallow water you have to be very careful not to run aground.
  • The main disadvantage of catamarans in comparison with yachts is their high cost. They will cost you significantly more than yachts, at least 2 times.
  • Mooring. The catamaran is larger and wider than the yacht, so the cost of parking in the marina will be higher and it is more difficult to find a free seat.
  • Control. The catamaran is less maneuverable, you will not get the same sensations from its control as from a yacht. A catamaran is not about sports swimming.
You decide what is more important to you, and what you can give up on. In any case, the choice is yours. If you have any questions about renting a yacht in the Maldives, please contact our consultants. They will help you make the best decision for you.
