Charter a Luxury Crewed Catamaran Out Of Belize City – Part II

Following on from Part I of our Belize blogs, and having introduced a sample itinerary and the destination, we give you some ideas of the best yachts to charter in Belize.

Two of our favourite yachts for charter in Belize are both Lagoon 500s. Lagoon catamarans are a part of Beneteau Yachts, and are a fantastic brand of catamaran, offering both luxury and comfort in spacious accommodation. Catamarans are perfect for first time sailors, as they provide stability on the water, and a space that you would often struggle to find in a monohull of the same length.

DORIS is the first of our Lagoon 500s, she is a 2007 model, with 3 cabins accommodating for up to 6 guests. Her crew of 2 is great and for sailing enthusiasts, they would love to let you help sail!

Our second suggestion is the beautiful AMURA, which is also a 2007 Lagoon 500, which accommodates 8 guests in her four well appointed cabins. Her interior is gorgeous and bright, though the use of large windows, which not only allow the sunlight of Belize to shine through into the yacht, but allow you to gaze out onto the crystal blue waters surrounding you.
