Cruising Catamaran Endorsement
Level – Advanced
Once you have become a Skipper or Bareboat Charter Master you may want to add the Catamaran Endorsement to you training and qualifications. This course prepares and certifies you to be able to charter a cruising catamaran.
Large catamarans can accommodate 4-6 couples, each with their own cabin and head (bathroom). This is our preferred sailboat for chartering. Once you learn how to operate a cruising cat, you will find them easy to maneuver and extremely comfortable and stable. There is plenty of room for lounging in the sun, especially up on the bow’s trampoline.
The Catamaran Endorsement is an addition to the Skipper or Bareboat Charter Master certifications. It deals with knowledge and techniques specific to handling a large catamaran such as a Logoon, Leopard. or Fountaine Pajot.
