Catamarans are the most common style of multi-hull powerboat, and are often considered as an alternative to center console boats. A pair of pontoon-like deep v-hulls delivers a softer ride than V-bottom boats; twin engines offer speed and power to head offshore. The large beam, i.e. width of boat, offers stability at rest, an excellent feature when carrying large crews. Speed, maneuverability, and space onboard are the main factors for choosing multihull design in powerboats.
Models designed for fishing are extremely popular with both fresh and saltwater anglers, while catamarans outfitted with recreational and cruising amenities make excellent all-around boats, perfect for families who enjoy a variety of on-the-water activities.
A wide, airy main cabin is the trademark of catamaran cruisers along with lots of deck space for sunning. Fuel-efficient, they are ideal for long-range cruising and island hopping.
