Cruising catamarans

How to choose this product

A cruising catamaran is a multihull sailboat designed for cruising.

Applications

Such craft are common in charter fleets because of their seaworthiness and comfort. The available space affords enough privacy for several families to sail together.

Technologies

As with other modern craft, the hull can be made of aluminum or composite materials. Aluminum is light, easily worked and sturdy enough to withstand impact. Fiberglass may crack after a collision with a submerged object in situations where aluminum will only bend. It is also easier to repair. For these reasons, catamarans designed for blue-water cruising often have aluminum hulls.

How to choose

Choice will depend on whether the boat will be used for offshore or coastal cruising. The number of berths is another important factor.

Advantages

- Enhanced available space, comfort and privacy
- Stable; little risk of capsize
- Shallow draft
- Reduced pitching and rolling

Disadvantages

- Poor windward performance
- Higher port fees
