Top Five Tips In Buying A Catamaran
"Money Pit" Catamarans: The Perils of Older Yachts
Cats Are Stable Platforms ADVANTAGES OF CATAMARANS: Catamarans are the fastest growing new build genre in the yachting world. If you count the number of yachts in charter fleets around the world, catamarans now outnumber monohulls. This was unthinkable 20 years ago. Experienced yachtsmen have discovered that the advantages of catamarans far outweigh the disadvantages:
  • Stable, level sailing is more comfortable and less tiring. Crew are less likely to fall overboard and seasickness ‚Äčis much less likely. Your martini or champagne glass will not tip over!
  • Catamarans have redundant systems (twin engines and twin rudders) which offers greater safety.
  • "Galley-up" versions make it easier to provision, easier to serve food and "the cook stays part of the party".
  • More and better dinghy storage options make catamaran cruising easier.
  • Large, bright, airy salons function like a "great room" in a house. With wide panoramic views it just feels and is actually much larger than a comparable monohull. Many catamaran salons come with a bar area or galley with breakfast bar and this becomes the focal point of convivial social activity.
  • Cats can be like "condos on the water" because the extra interior volume allows you to fit all the amenities of home.
  • Sleeping cabins are in the corners of the yacht so you feel like there's more space and there's more privacy because no two walls are shared.
  • No more heeling while underway and no more rocking at anchor. Cooking, sleeping, walking are easier and safer on a cat. For those prone to seasickness, the natural stability of a catamaran is a blessing.
  • Wide, Flat, Stable Decks
  • Wide expansive cockpits and decks are a pleasure to walk or lounge on.
  • Large flybridge areas with extraordinary visibilty have become the focal point while underway and another great spot for having a party.
  • Engines spaced wide apart make steering and docking super-easy.
  • Owner's Suites can be full-beam sized and larger than ever before.
  • Cats are the future and have been maintaining excellent resale value. Compare this to the multitudes of "wedding cake" style motoryachts that depreciate rapidly.
  • Cats are shallow draft which enables more choices when cruising or anchoring.
  • Salons tend to be on the same level as the main deck so there is no endless walking up and down stairs. They can be built "wheelchair-friendly".
  • In higher winds, sailing cats are faster than cruising monohulls.
  • Because of less hull drag, motoring in a catamaran requires less fuel and higher speeds can be attained with less horsepower. To attain greater fuel savings, port and starboard engines can be alternated on long passages.
  • Catamarans can be built as unsinkable and are safer than monohulls.
  • The drawbacks to cats are:
    • "more expensive" because you have twice the boat,
    • sometimes harder and more costly to find a dock for,
    • monohulls are less expensive to haul-out,
    • Catamarans don't sail into the wind in light winds with a sloppy sea-state as well as a performance monohull.
