Lagoon 42

Although Hobie cats have been part of the sailing scene for decades, the growing presence of full-size catamarans in the recreational sailboat market is a fairly recent phenomenon.

As a result, many people have limited first-hand experience of sailing a full-sized cruising catamaran and are interested gaining greater practical before making a final purchase decision - they want to try before they buy.

Now Sound Yachting can offer you the answer...

If you charter one of the many catamarans that Sound Yachting has helped set up in charter - in either New England or the Caribbean - and you subsequently buy a new catamaran from us within 12 months of the charter we will discount the purchase price of the new catamaran by up to a week's charter fee, thus allowing you to "try before you buy" FOR FREE.

The number of catamarans and the different models that we have placed in charter are increasing all the time so please check with us for the latest information, but we should be able to offer our "Try before you buy" program to you on the following catamarans:


Please contact us for additional information on the Sound Yachting "Try before you buy" program and to confirm the latest availability of catamarans and locations.
