Category Description

Displacement yachts imply a leisurely journey with comfort. Compared to planing yachts, they have a larger living volume: The engine compartment takes up less space, and the hull lines are rather round-bilged instead of sporty.

This class of motor yachts is very autonomous and allows for long-distance travel, storing enough fuel and water on board to help make large crossings without unnecessary stops.

Such a yacht will never develop high speed (while one can push up throttle in semi-displacement yachts, if necessary); its strong point is gentle fuel consumption and efficiency .

Displacement yachts are more seaworthy and tend to behave better, both on a high wave and at anchor. Controlling this yacht's motions is much easier than controlling the motions of a planing yacht.
