Motor or sailing yacht?
If you become pampered by passive rest on sandy beaches, and the soul asks for new impressions and adventures, then a sail or a trip on a yacht will be a truly unforgettable and unique experience for you.
But here comes the question of choosing a yacht. To understand which of them can fully realize your desires and give you a fairy tale, you first need to understand what to choose from and what are the features of each of the options.
There are several types, such as: fast, dissecting sea waves motor yachts; comfortable and slightly less rapid catamarans; an ideal romantic or a family option of pastime – elegant sailing yachts. Which option should you choose?
Main features of motor and sailing yachts
The first thing to talk about is speed, which is the main distinguishing feature when choosing.
The fastest, of course, are motor yachts. Thanks to their powerful engines, they are able to develop speeds from 18 to 110 km/h. The indicator depends, of course, not only on the specific model of the vessel, but also on weather conditions, terrain and a host of other nuances.
As for sailing yachts, their speed indicators are determined by their destination. For example, if the main task of such a vessel is to provide the maximum level of passenger and crew comfort, the indicator will range from 9 to 19 km / h.
This category of boats has its own special philosophy, where priority is not speed, but a fusion with the sea, its rhythm, maximum contact with nature.
Adriatic coast of Croatia, of course, can not be better suited for such a measured rhythm due to its rugged coastline, a huge number of stunning beauty of harbors and bays.
Small distances from one fascinating corner to another will allow you in one day not only to enjoy a sea voyage, but also plenty of swimming, and also to spend the night in a vending place. And this, of course, is a huge plus.
Another important distinguishing feature between sailing and motor yachts is their stability or the ability of boats to resist the manifestation of external forces, such as wind and waves, returning to an equilibrium state.
You already know that motor yachts are capable of resisting solely by the power of engine. A sailing yacht has a low center of gravity, as well as a heavy ballast keel, which acts as a submerged wing and provides stability.
If we talk about the maneuverability in port areas, then, of course, the motor yacht takes precedence over the sailing yacht, but do not think that the sailing yachts are far behind in this matter, because at the expense of the deep keel, which is the rotational center of the hull under the water, and the screw position, they are very agile.
Speaking about the indicator of comfort, the advantage is on the side of motor yachts, the interior decoration of which can really amaze with its beauty. In addition, the deck of such a vessel is simply created in order to soak up the sun or have a party. On a sailing yacht, comfort, as a rule, is subordinated to its main purpose – sailing. Such a deck is less suitable for large noisy parties, but a place for a family or a small company is enough.
Now that you are familiar with all the peculiarities inherent in motor and sailing yachts, choosing the ideal rental option for yourself – will not be difficult. Enjoy unforgettable days of your holiday!
