Frequently Asked Questions

What can I do to prevent seasickness?

Seasickness is a common concern among new sailors. To minimize the likelihood, consider taking seasickness medication before embarking. Once on board, stay on deck as much as possible to keep your eyes on the horizon, which helps your body adjust to the motion of the sea. The Leopard 53 Powercat's stable design also plays a significant role in providing a smoother sailing experience.

Will I feel cramped inside the yacht?

Yachts are designed with space maximization in mind. The Leopard 53 Powercat, for instance, features an open-plan interior and generously sized cabins. The saloon’s panoramic windows and thoughtfully arranged seating areas also enhance the sense of spaciousness, ensuring that you have ample room to relax and socialize without feeling confined.

What's the proper etiquette when it comes to interacting with the crew?

When it comes to yacht etiquette, respect and kindness go a long way. The crew is there to ensure your safety and comfort, so feel free to ask them questions or request their assistance. It's also customary to follow any specific guidelines the captain or crew may outline, such as removing shoes before entering certain areas to keep the yacht clean and damage-free.

Can I help with sailing the yacht?

If you're interested in getting involved with sailing the Leopard 53 Powercat, simply express this desire to the crew. Most of the time the captain will need help docking, anchoring etc. so guests will need to be hands on. He will happily explain the technical aspect while on route but this experience will need all hands on deck.

Are there specific areas designated for relaxation?

Absolutely! The Leopard 53 Powercat is outfitted with numerous relaxation areas. The aft deck, flybridge, and foredeck are all furnished for your comfort, allowing you to soak up the sun or enjoy the open air with a book. Inside, the saloon and cabins offer cozy nooks for quieter moments.

What kind of activities can I expect to do while on the yacht?

From swimming and sunbathing to exploring ashore or indulging in onboard entertainment, there's no shortage of activities. Water toys and a tender boat may also be available for water sports or beach excursions. The crew can help organize these adventures for a memorable experience.

How should I pack for a yacht trip?

Pack light, versatile clothing that can handle a gentle breeze as well as a warm day under the sun. Don't forget swimwear, a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Since space can be at a premium, soft-sided luggage is recommended. For cooler evenings or indoor comfort, a sweater or light jacket would be beneficial.

Remember, every yacht trip is unique, and the above guidelines are meant to ensure that your experience is as enjoyable as possible. Should you have more questions, do not hesitate to reach out to your charter company—they will be more than happy to provide additional information to suit your specific needs.
