The tradition for sailboat names is strongly rooted in the hearts of those who love to sail the sea. In fact, it is not uncommon for it to happen that a person has the name of his or her boat in mind even before buying it.
Taking a step back, we discover how important naming a boat was even in ancient times. Much more than important. In fact, it was inadmissible for a sailor not to baptize his own boat.
Often the names were linked to gods and saints, with the hope that these would be benevolent and protect people at sea. Also, changing a boat’s name was considered an ominous sign.
Today the superstition has diminished, and there are many kinds of boats, but the importance of naming them well has remained.
What are the names of the types of sailboats?
Sailboats are the boats that most immediately call to mind feelings of glamour and elegance, a timeless luxury that no powerboat can replicate.
Sailboats, moreover, are believed to be the ones that most enable sailing the sea and more direct contact with nature.
Precisely because they take advantage of the wind to follow their own routes.
Now, it does not mean that sailing precludes the use of a motor. This is now expected in all boats, even those with sails.
But let’s quickly see what the names of the types of sailboats are.
In essence, these can be divided into three types:
- Catamaran and trimaran: are sailboats that are made with two or three hulls, respectively. They are very large, so much so that they can accommodate a large number of people on board. These boats are born with a sporting spirit, although many people choose these boats for pure sailing pleasure. They are very stable and structured in such a way to be also very fast.
- monohull sailing: unlike catamarans and trimarans, the monohull has only one hull, so it has less space than multihulls. As a number of people that can be accommodated on board, the speedboat is more thrifty and is less suitable for large open seas;
- sailing ship: when we think of the sailing tradition, we cannot help but think of the sailing ship. Charmingly designed, it is ideal for smooth sailing and has a structure that allows for high comfort.
Given this distinction of the names of types of sailboats, it is immediate how the choice should fall primarily on the type of sailing you want to do, taking into account your personal taste.
