Catamaran FAQ

What is the difference between a boat and a catamaran?

The main difference between a Yacht and a Catamaran is the shape of its hull. A simple sailing boat has one bottom, which sits in water; whereas the Catamarans, being a multi-hull, have two points of contact that sit in the water.

The two-hull design is an ancient one and had its roots in India thousands of years ago. In simplest terms, a Catamaran means “a boat with two hulls” from the Tamil word Kattumaram which translates to logs bound together. These designs were primarily used for fishing but eventually became popular among others who wanted greater speed or stability when rowling across water.

There is always a hot debate on which is safer between Catamarans and Sailboats to cross an ocean, and even though both have great merits, the Catamaran is a good safe bet. They're often much safer than similarly sized monohulls because of their increased motion, comfort, stability and their speed, they are very stable and have natural buoyancy.

Catamarans have two engines to burn fuel, which can raise your fuel costs. However, a Catamaran is lighter on the water, so it usually takes less energy to move, which in all, makes it more fuel efficient than monohulls.

The average price for a new cruising Catamarans is between $350,000 to $500,000. Luckily, on Boatcrazy, there are plenty of new and used options, starting as low as $18,000

Maintaining a Catamaran will cost around 5-15% of the boat's value. This includes the cost of annual haul-outs, insurance coverage, and yearly boat service and repairs, excluding major upgrades.
