Is it Better to Charter a Catamaran or a Monohull?
There are many benefits of choosing a catamaran over a monohull. Catamarans rarely heel more than 5 degrees, which means offshore passages are less tiring, drink and food stay on the table and there is less chance of getting sea-sick. Modern catamarans sail windward as much as 25% faster, while off the wind it can go 75% to 100% faster than a monohull. Catamarans have a shallow draft and there are more anchoring possibilities. They have large, wide deck areas and a larger salon providing 360-degree visibility. More space enables more privacy - catamarans have separate hulls with separate cabins. Modern catamarans need no ballast and their buoyancy also means that you cannot overcrowd them.
