Any fast cats for charter?

My top four cats to buy are Freydis 46/49, Outremer 45-55, Cantana 45+,and Schonning. Are any of these boats available for charter? I would like to spend 2-3 weeks on a boat before I buy. I am not going to buy a boat this year so I have some time to charter and try a boat. Any leads?

You should be able to go to each dealer's web site and most will list lase or rental locations.

Dream Yacht Charters ( Sail the PlacesYou've Only Dreamed Of | Dream Yacht Charters | Charter boats, cruises, catamaran rental, by the cabin charters – Caribbean, Indian Ocean, Asia, Pacific, Mediterranean, Bahamas – Cuba, Madagascar, Thailand, Tahiti ) have a number of Catanas for charter in the Caribbean. You'll need to look pretty hard to find any of the others on your list.

Outremer 5X #1 is for charter in the Med. Despite the dodgy looking IP address website, this is actually their charter website.

Location Plaisance Outremer 5x

(Link from here Charter an Outremer 5X | Grand Large Café)

Quick google-fu and I also found a 49 for charter:

AYB Catamarans - Vente de catamarans neufs et occasion - Location de catamarans - LOCATION OUTREMER 49

No affiliation - purely google-fu

There is also Rocketeer a Chris White 57 that is in the USVI.

Re: Any fast cats for charter?

Not likely you'll find a Freydis or Schonning, but Antillies-sail.com in Guadeloupe has an Outremer 49. Try this link:
Location catamaran Guadeloupe 8/10 personnes : location catamaran Outremer 49

They responded to me with a quote very quickly, be sure and check English in the response form unless your French is better than mine. The site is also in French.

I tried to see this at the dock when I chartered a Catana from Dream Yachts this past July, in the same harbor, but it was out on charter.

It might be possible to do them back to back, DYC has a number of Catana 47s in Guadeloupe. Excellent operation, and Guadeloupe is also a good place for "test driving", which is what I was doing.

Re: Any fast cats for charter?

thanks for all the leads. I should have mentioned that I am looking to buy an older boat like a Catana 471 or Outremer 50 std or light. So the newer boats don't hold so much interest.
