What Accommodations Does a Catamaran Have?

Whether going on a day cruise or sailing through islands or different points, a catamaran is a great option. Catamarans count with all the necessary commodities that you need for your trip.

But you might be wondering, “do catamarans have toilets?” The short answer is yes, they do. No matter if it’s a power cat, a catamaran ferry, your friend’s weekend sailboat, or a charter sailboat, almost all Catamarans have marine toilets on board.

Catamarans generally have accommodation for many rooms, or cabins in boat vocabulary, because they are quite huge and expansive. This implies that at least one space will be devoted to personal grooming, such as using the toilet.

Do Catamarans Have Toilets?

As mentioned before, most catamarans have toilets for you to use on your trip. Most modern boats now have onboard restrooms, whether it’s a luxury catamaran or a friend’s getaway sailboat. At Esmeralda Catamaran Lagoon 39, we count with four restrooms to receive big groups of people and make long trips.

A few small catamarans under 20 feet and beach cats are the outliers for this rule. Still common on small vessels is a portable toilet.

What Types of Toilets Might You Find?

Even though there is a toilet, you should be aware that boat toilets are not the same as those you are accustomed to on land. The two main categories are electric and manual.

Manual Pump

The toilets in this location are fixed in place. It is expected that they’ll have a sewage tank that should be emptied at the port. For this toilet to flush, you’ll have to ensure you’ve connected to the flushing water supply.

Electric Head

The waste is pushed into a tank (black water tank) or directly into the nearby waterways by an electric head that is activated by pressing a button.

Electric heads are more expensive since they are more sensitive to the amount of trash they are packed with, frequently clog, and require maintenance.

Insights for Before You Sail

We advise using the restroom on land to avoid using the boat’s facilities during shorter voyages. Although marine bathrooms are often great, utilizing them while at sea can be challenging, particularly in severe weather and rough seas.

A catamaran is perfect for a restful holiday because it has plenty of room, stability, and living areas—like a floating hotel. But keep in mind that a catamaran vacation doesn’t have to be expensive and is much less costly than a trip to a hotel.

The Esmeralda Sailing Catamaran Lagoon 39 is the perfect private charter for large groups. Visitors can enjoy entertainment, catering, four cabins, four bathrooms, a kitchen, an interior lounge, and a deck lounge on our catamaran. Get in touch with us and book a trip!
