, How to pick the right yacht?

Owning a yacht is a dream come true for many people. But with so many options available on the market, choosing the right one can be a daunting task. From the purpose of the boat, the size to the budget, there are quite a few questions you need to ask yourself before picking the right yacht for yourself. We’ll explore some criteria to help you find the right yacht for your needs.

Day trippers

The purpose of the boat is the first factor to consider when choosing the right one. If you plan to use the boat for day trips, a smaller boat around 40 feet like the Prestige 420 may be a good option. It’s smaller in size but with a big flybridge and lots of space as social area, making it perfect for short-distance trips and great for social gatherings.

Weekend getaways

If you plan to use the boat for some overnight weekend trips, then you may want something with a bit more space. Bigger boats can also travel longer distances because they have bigger fuel tanks and more powerful engines. Models like Prestige 590 or X70 are perfect for family and friend weekend trips, as they have enough space for different activities, the big aft-cockpit will be perfect for a sunset dinner and spacious flybridge is great for stargazing in the middle of the sea. Bigger yachts also provide more cabins, meaning more guests can be accommodated comfortably on board.

Mid-distant destinations

For a bit longer-distance trips, a bigger-sized sail catamaran like the Fountaine Pajot Tanna 47 will be a good choice. Sail catamarans offer numerous advantages like stability, reduced fuel consumption, and more space. They’re ideal for longer journeys due to their stability, comfort, space and ability to sail faster downwind.

Oversea adventures

And if you are looking to go for even longer distance destinations like Thailand or the Philippines from Hong Kong, besides sail catamarans, power catamarans that are larger than 50ft and motor monohull yachts that are bigger than 60ft will be great options for you, as bigger sized yachts do better offshore. For long distance overseas destinations, power catamarans offer more space and reduced fuel consumption, allowing them to go further than similarly sized monohull yachts. The Fountaine Pajot Power 67 or Prestige M8 are recommended if you plan to explore further into Asia or the Pacific.

Big-group users

Besides the purpose of the yacht, the number of people who will be using the boat is another factor to consider. For instance, catamarans have more space and cabins for their size compared to monohulls, making them ideal for families and larger groups. They also offer separated cabins in two sides of the hulls, providing more privacy and comfort. Flybridge motor yachts and large catamarans offer multiple shaded entertaining outdoor areas that always allow guests to find their own private space on the main deck or on the flybridge.
