A catamaran is often referred to as a multi-hull boat, and is essentially 2 separate hulls that are connected together. Catamarans are available with Sails and motors or a combination of the two. Due to the construction methods of Catamarans, the obvious advantage is the even distribution of weight ensuring stability. In stronger winds and higher seas the catamaran is a better choice for those who experience seasickness as Sailing boats and Motorboats can have the tendencey to lean to one side or rock from side to side.
Catamarans are the most popular boats for charters worldwide. Often the first preference for large groups, catamarans are easier to navigate in seas with larger swells and are generally faster than their monohull, sailing boat companions.

There are a wide range of catamaran manufacturers throughout the world and each manufacturer builds with different qualities in mind. Within Yachtico's experience, many sailors recommend different types of Catamarans for various reasons based on an individual preference or experience. Typically speaking - Catamarans manufactured by Fountaine Pajot's Lipari series, Beneteau's Lagoon subsidiary and Robertson & Caine's Leopard catamarans are amongst the most requested by Yachtico.com sailors.

The major difference between Catamarans and sailing boats or motor boats is the living space. Catamarans are typically more spacious, with designs that ensure indiduals can enjoy some privacy whilst also allowing the space to enjoy group get-togethers above and below deck. Catamarans are also popular as they come in a variety of different sizes.
