SY Wharram 38
The yacht : A comfortable,
fast sailing catamaran for up to 6 guests
Cruising Area :
Highlights : Our Wharram Cats can take a maximum of 6 guests who are accommodated in 4 comfortable private cabins, two doubles and two singles. All cabins are light and airy, opening hatches and portholes provide ample ventilation and natural light. Additionally there is an electric fan above each bed. Life in the tropics is largely enjoyed outside, therefore the deck space is made simply huge, almost 30 square metres. Plenty of room for sunbathing and relaxing or partying.
Alfresco living at its best! At the bow and stern there is netting, great for lazing away or sleeping under the stars. The cockpit is well sheltered with an awning offering permanent protection from the sun and the odd tropical rain shower.

Internal accomodation consists of two comfortable double cabins and two private single cabins. The cabins are light and airy : two large opening hatches per cabin plus extra opening portholes in the doubles ensure a maximum flow of fresh air, in addition there are electric fans above each bed. Of course you can also sleep under the stars on deck or in the bow nets ! There is one shower/toilet compartment plus a second shower on deck. The galley has ample space for two cooks and is well equipped . The stove has flame - failure cutouts.
Our modified Wharram 38 catamarans are eminently suited for bareboat sailing charters in the tropics . Life in climates like ours is largely enjoyed outdoors so rather then trying to maximize the internal accomodation, as is done with most other catamarans, we went the opposite way and made instead the usable deck area as spacious as possible . The result is a living space of 66 sqm (700 sqft) which may well be large enough to land a helicopter on. Even with the maximum of six guests it never gets crowded. Not having a bridge deck cabin has many more advantages : a lighter boat, unobstructed view,
less windage and cheaper to build (resulting in cheaper charter rates as well).
