Racing catamarans

How to choose this product

A racing catamaran is a high-performance, twin-hulled sailboat.

Applications

Unlike sport catamarans, which are designed for day use, these craft may have one or more cabins, making them suitable for cruising, in addition to their great speed capabilities. This category includes production catamarans, such as the Decision 35, used in one-design races between identical boats.

Technologies

Designers constantly seek improved performance by varying strength-to-weight ratios. High-tech materials are common in hull construction, as well as for rigging and sails. These include Kevlar-epoxy sandwich and pre-impregnated carbon fiber, among other materials.

How to choose

Choice will depend primarily on boat size as a function of the number of expected crew, slip/mooring availability or trailering capacity. A cabin offers the possibility of coastal harbor hopping or offshore cruising.

Advantages

- Great performance and excitement
- Cabin option

Disadvantages

- Occupies significant space in port
- Expensive maintenance
