What is a power catamaran?


Main features of a power catamaran



Increasingly popular boats, power catamarans are two-hulled, engine-powered boats suitable for day and night cruising. They can also be adapted for sport fishing and any other nautical activity. Two hulls give them stability and sailing comfort even in rough seas, unlike monohull vessels. At anchor, power catamarans have low sensitivity to roll, creating a particularly enjoyable sailing experience. Generally measuring between 5.5 and 20 metres long, power catamarans are pleasure boats where comfort, space and safety are key.



They are known to be simple to use, manoeuvre and maintain. They have 3 living spaces (forward, aft and on-deck), resulting in pleasant places to live, making them perfect for families.



It is hard not to compare power catamarans to sailing catamarans. Here are the main differences:


  • ability to sail when there is no wind;
  • live-aboard boat, entirely reserved for the crew and their comfort;
  • that said, autonomy is often reduced.



The main manufacturers of power catamarans are Fountaine Pajot, Lagoon, Robertson and Caine, and Sunreef.


What are the advantages and disadvantages of power catamarans?


Sailing on a power catamaran has several advantages:


  • they are comfortable and stable boats thanks to their large draught;
  • some models offer high sailing speeds;
  • they are beautiful and pleasant boats to live on thanks to their three living areas.





However, power boats also have some disadvantages:


  • their environmental impact can be significant;
  • their consumption generally climbs quickly.
