But what type of vessel is a catamaran ?
For the uninitiated in the world of sailing an boats and those of you considering renting a catamaran in Ibiza this summer , we will begin by saying that a catamaran is a boat that has two hulls, which is like placing two single hulled sailing boats together next to each other , leaving an empty space between the two hulls ,flying over the water, without touching the waves, and therefore without producing friction against it, thus catamarans are more stable and sail faster than regular sailing boats .
On the picture above we can fully appreciate the space between the two hulls that “flies ” over the water
The origin of catamarans
The word catamaran comes from the Tamil language originated in Sri Lanka. Back in the day, Tamil people built the first catamarans. It was a type of boat widely used not only in Southeast Asia but also in other parts of the world and in the Pacific. Came to be as a canoe with an annex that helped keeping always the upright position and prevented overturned towards one side. It also endowed the boat with additional space and the boat user could allocate people rowing on the main hull, while the other hull was used for transportation of goods , provisions, etc. .
If you are planning to rent a boat in Ibiza and Formentera in the summer of 2014 and do not have much experience in this area, we can say from personal experience, that you have a lot of work ahead of you. The offer of boat rental in Ibiza is a bit messy. Boats, sailboats, catamarans, powerboats, and yachts. Then we need to clear up if prices include VAT, local taxes and what the heck are the “extras” or the “comfort pack”? What’s all that? Will I be able to rent a boat in Ibiza? Or is ti going to cost me an arm and a leg? On top of everything that i am paying, do I also need to pay for bed sheets, rent a dinghy and an outboard motor? Are you kidding me? Why don’t you give all-inclusive prices to make it easier to compare among all the offers in Ibiza?

Renting a sailing boat in Ibiza is a distinct , original and ideal way to go from the island of Ibiza, across the strait, to Formentera . If you close your eyes and think of the typical postcard Ibiza surely will imagine a turquoise water beach with white sand and some white houses on the background, and a group of sailing boats moored in front of the cove. Ibiza is an island that has a great international demand for sailing boat for many reasons: the clarity of its waters, the large amount of voces providing good shelter for anchoring , benevolent and prevailing wind from the east usually mild, that delights sailing fans. And of course do not forget the main engine of the economy of the island, all the night clubs and leisure industry. DJs even lower their caches as to include the island of Ibiza in their CVs.
