Learn More About Our Catamaran Sailboat!
What's so great about a catamaran? A catamaran denotes a boat with two hulls or compartments that enable the vessel to displace water evenly on both sides. This design allows the catamaran to avoid rocking, as a traditional, single-hulled sailboat does. For folks on vacation--this point is a gold nugget--those that are not accustomed to boats tend to get seasick.
Why the double-hull design is a vacationers best boat friend:
Stable, non-rocking design. Why is this important? Because as the hull heaves so may your stomach.
Plenty of storage space with 2 hulls. And, if the kids fight, we can separate them.
Speed. The catamaran is twice as fast as a traditional sailboat. Save the monohull for the land turtles! (Sea turtles are fast too.)
Light footprint. A Stiletto can maneuver in shallow water due to a broader displacement of water across two lightweight hulls (Crab Island, here we come!)
Built for comfort. You aren't awkwardly lounging on a sloping deck like a monohull sailboat.
Maximized deck space. The catamaran has two opposing benches with cushions, as well as 80 square feet of trampoline for lounging and watching the waves.
If you are thinking of chartering just any ol' catamaran, let me tell you why the Stiletto brand makes this boat even groovier:
Built light for speed. Although you may want to relax on your Destin sailing cruise, never forget, this cat has speed in its back pocket. The catamaran tops out at 25 knots (20 mph). In Destin, we can safely cruise at 15 knots with the jib (front sail) raised, and feel the power.
It will never sink. Aeronautic technology is utilized in its honeycomb laminate that enables the material itself to float, not relying on the intact body of the vessel. So, no matter what the Florida waters bring, this puppy floats.
Versatility of design. You can beach it; you can trailor it. When was the last time you saw a monohull sailboat pulled up on the beach or roaming down the highway? This boat goes everywhere. But watch out, you might catch catamaran fever thinking of the possibilities of where you could take it!
You are cool by proxy. Riding in our Stiletto catamaran brings you closer to the lastest version of the Stiletto XF, the foiling catamaran that once it reaches 14 knots, raises up and rides on hydrofoils, appearing to hover 2 feet above the water!
The "Best Day Ever" Sailboat Cruise, 4-6 Hour Private Charter
At Captain Jambo's, We Know How To "Do" Destin.
Here is a write-up of a much loved itinerary that
may save you from being one of the many people
who ride into the dock thinking, "I wish I had
longer on the sailboat!"
The sails are set due south from Captain Jambo's
peaceful, scenic bay dock. With tummies full of
butterflies and expectations, we sail through the
glowing, emerald waves, under the Destin Bridge,
through the Destin Pass, and East and West Jetties to the magnificent Gulf of Mexico. Here, we look for bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, and other marine life. We sail along Florida's beaches, marveling at the beauty of the water and sugar white beach. Next, the sails are set north, back through the Destin Pass to the world famous, Crab Island. This shallow, clear sandbar is a hot spot for Destin boaters' fun in the sun. Catch a margarita or some fish tacos at the festive Waterworld Restaurant and Bar. Play with the kids on the giant, inflatable waterpark. Just remember, no babysitting your pontoon boat, come and go as you please to check out the festivities, your captain will be happy to hold the anchor! After you've had your fill of Crab lsland, we sail to the nearby grassbeds for snorkeling. Crabs and fish abound here. You might even spot a majestic seahorse! Take our underwater Gro Pro camera to document your adventure! Next door is one of the few areas to find seashells in Destin, so take some souvenirs home from your hunt. When your pockets are full, we will set sails again for a relaxing sail through the calm waters of the Choctawhatchee Bay, watching the explosive
colors of the sunset on this
incredible sailing day.
Finally, we head back to
the dock from where our
adventure began. Now,
the sailboat sails away,
leaving you sun-kissed
and ocean-drunk with a
mind full of memories of
an amazing Destin sail.
