Sailboats offer romance and pleasure of true sailing. This comes at a price as sailboats take longer to master, require more skill and physical efforts to operate.
Cruising sailboats offer spacious cabins with luxuries such as an air conditioner, generator, full galley and head compartment with hot water shower.
Racers are built for speed. Long and narrow, they carry more canvas and often require a crew to operate. They are designed to go fast.
Sailing catamarans and trimarans offer multiple staterooms, lots of deck space, shallow draft and stability, as well as long range.
Motorsailers are designed to perform equally well when powered by wind or diesel inboard motor.
