Choosing the right sailboat for your cruise in the Antilles
1 / How many people do you want to travel with?
We offer a wide choice of sailboats that can adapt to your needs.
The Sun Odyssey 409 is the smallest of them, it can accommodate a maximum of 6 people while the larger units can accommodate up to 12 people.
If from a budgetary point of view it is in your interest to fill the capacity of the boat as much as possible, this is not necessarily the best choice, when making your selection it is important to think about the balance between comfort and budget.
Good to know: If you rent the boat with a skipper and / or a hostess, a cabin is reserved for each of them.
2 / How will your crew be composed?
Young children on board:
In general, we recommend that people wishing to cruise with young children to opt for catamarans, the latter offer significantly more stability and a safer exterior cockpit. The catamaran will allow you to be more serene and your child will fully enjoy the cruise
Grouping of two families:
When two families decide to get together to go on a cruise, the catamaran has the advantage of offering two hulls, each family can thus settle on the same boat while retaining a certain independence (one family in the starboard hull and the other to port)
3 / What are the differences between a monohull and a catamaran?
Catamarans and monohulls have their own characteristics. If a monohull can turn out to be more marine, a catamaran will have the advantage of having a shallow draft and thus more easily approach the beaches for swimming.
