Our favorite midsize sailing catamarans

Updated: Jan 31

As the previous summer seasons were disrupted due to the global pandemic, we all became eager to travel, hoping that 2022 would bring us a carefree summer to indulge safely and comfortably.

We have picked the best new catamarans available for charter in Croatia: Ones that stand out for their performance and design while adding comfort and space to make you feel as if you're in a luxury floating condo. Take a look at models ideal for groups of four to eight plus two crew members:

Lagoon 46

A recent Lagoon model is now available to charter in Croatia; It's becoming the new favorite as an improved version of the most chartered catamaran and its predecessor, the Lagoon 45.

While the 45 is still around and a great catamaran to charter, if you are a larger group you might want to take a peek at the new 46's advantages:

  1. More space to lounge - the cockpit, bow, and the top deck offer plenty of comfy cushions

  2. Larger bow cabins - same size as the aft ones, no more sacrificing precious bed inches

  3. Larger windows for more sunlight and views

As described by the shipyard: "A next step to the perfect liveaboard: The 46 reinforces the fundamentals that have made the brand a hedonist and generous sailing reference: freedom and audacity, gentle lifestyle and innovation, so many beliefs that are expressed in a style that Patrick le Quément has strengthened and harmonized through every new birth."

Fountaine Pajot Saona 47

Elegant & classy with a noticeable dynamic and robust design. The perfect compromise for more room with the fifth cabin without upgrading to the larger 50+ feet crewed catamarans.

"The Saona 47 exudes a striking aura with its distinctive design, strong lines, and timeless elegance under sail or at anchor. This catamaran boasts expansive living areas for enhanced cruising pleasure. The expansive cockpit is intelligently designed for entertaining and features an extended aft platform to facilitate a host of leisure activities easily." - Fountaine Pajot, catamaran shipyard

Dufour 48

True to its signature style previously established on monohulls, the Dufour manufacturer launched a luxury sailing catamaran that can be found for charter in Croatia as a 4-cabin layout, meaning plenty of space & comfort with Dufour's classical touch!

SAIL Magazine review: "How cool it is when a veteran boatbuilder like Dufour makes as bold a move as venturing into the world of multihulls after years as a monohull builder! The Dufour 48 shares several features with those same competitors it's now going against, including plenty of lounging space everywhere from alongside the raised helm station to up near the bows, and an aft mast position in the interest of making the subsequently smaller main a bit more manageable. "

Bali 4.8

Last but no least (au contraire!) The known Bali "Open Space" concept makes this catamaran stand out compared to other cats from this class. The shaded cockpit is an actual extension of the interior, fully connected to the kitchen and living area, allowing for even easier interaction between indoors and outdoors, a blast for our groups of friends and family.

For your moments out in the open, you can make up for more breeze and sunbathing on the top deck and innovative bow lounge -accessible by the bow door - with an additional table! The comfy cushions took over the net - a staple for most catamarans, but somehow we don't miss it here! Prepare to enjoy every inch of this smartly designed catamaran, and our (shhh!) all-time favorite.
