Catamarans for sale
Why trust us ?
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a catamaran?
Catamarans offer a wealth of advantages for any sailor tempted by sailing:
- they are resistant to listing, making sailing more enjoyable;
- they are faster downwind;
- they have two engines providing greater manoeuvrability and making entering harbours easier;
- and they have a low draught, which means they can sail in shallow waters.
However, for those who prefer thrills, it is wiser to go for a monohull, as catamarans are generally heavier which makes them more stable and less sporty.
Layout of a catamaran
The space aboard catamarans with a length of 12 metres and above is larger and more comfortable than monohulls of the same size. This provides more living space with a beautiful galley, large lounge area and a roomy cockpit. This feature is sure to be appreciated when sailing with several people, whether friends or family. In addition, the number of cabins increases to 4 with one at each end of the hulls, combining privacy and tranquillity.
