Known for rivaling the sailboat with its two hulls, catamaran rentals and purchases have seen a great surge in popularity over the last decade. Those who tend to choose a catamaran like the Helia 44, typically prefer more comfort and a much more stable experience than hitting the sea with your favorite sailboat. You see, while sailboats are immersed in the water, catamarans only lean on the water, which provides much smoother sailing for everyone onboard.

Depending on the individual, life can be better on the catamaran since it’s higher off the surface of the water, and therefore isn’t controlled by the wind as much as a sailboat. You can also see the scenery better. Fortunately, for those looking to purchase a catamaran, Boatsetter’s got you covered with our catamaran rentals from across the globe. This way you can take the boat for a test drive before taking the big dive and even offset the costs from purchasing one brand new.


Take the leap and hop aboard a Helia 44


Hailed as one of the best catamarans out there for providing comfort while providing exceptional performance under the sail, the Helia 44, is one of the best catamarans one the water. Loaded with four double cabins, each one with their own separate toilet and show, these catamarans are built for overnight stays on the water with the stars flickering above. But it doesn’t stop there. Decked out with a 3-seater bench and large table, and grill, these boats make the perfect catamaran getaway for friends and family alike. So cook up some Angus burgers and kick back with an ice cold beer on this luxurious boat that everyone’s raving about.
