The type of yachts – motor, sailing and others

1. Motor yachts

Motor yachts

Motor yachts are boats equipped with a mechanical engine. We will go with such a yacht in any direction, no matter which direction the wind blows. Motor boats are easier to use than the sailing yachts discussed below – so they are perfect for people who are just starting their adventure with sailing.

Among the motor boats you will find both very large, luxurious yachts, equipped with a jacuzzi, spa and other amenities, as well as smaller models (also comfortable, with a flybridge grill and other amenities).

Such a yacht is the perfect choice for a vacation, special event, romantic dinner with engagement. Motor yachts are very popular, especially in Croatia.

2. Sailing yachts

Sailing yachts

Sailing yachts are, as the name suggests, yachts with sails, driven by the force of the wind. They are also smaller and slower than motor yachts.

A cruise on such a boat will surely provide a lot of positive emotions and will be a great adventure.

3. Yacht gulet

Yacht gulet

These are hybrid yachts, equipped with both sails and an engine. They come from Turkey and were used to transport goods in the past. These are stable boats, distinguished by beautiful wooden hulls.

4. Catamaran


These are boats with two parallel hulls. In the case of this type of yachts, we have more space at our disposal than in the case of models with one hull. The catamaran will be a great choice for a special event, vacation, cruise with friends.

We distinguish between sailing and motor catamarans.

5. Fishing yachts

Fishing yachts

Fishing yachts are an ideal proposition for fishing enthusiasts. On such boats, we have a place for fishing equipment, a big plus is also the easier access to water. Moreover, some models of the boats mentioned are equipped with fishing gear.

6. Expedition yachts

Expedition yachts

Expedition yachts are powerful boats that are used for long voyages, such as voyages around the world. This is not the type of boat that is rented for a week’s vacation.

Expedition yachts are constructed in such a way that they are self-sufficient, and staying on them, even for a very long time, is comfortable.

As you can see, there are different types of boats. The choice of the model depends on individual needs, sailing skills and destination.
