Synopsis

Combining how-to manual, buyer's guide and coffee-table 'dream book', Catamarans covers every aspect of cruising catamarans from the technical details to the luxurious, relaxed lifestyle. The first comprehensive book on cruising cats in more than 10 years, Catamarans will be welcomed by anyone interested in owning or sailing one of these increasingly popular craft. The author reviews basic concepts of multihull design, construction and performance; discusses the latest catamaran developments; and examines multihull seamanship and how it differs from sailing a monohull. He outlines desirable attributes of multihulls, explains what to look for when buying and presents a catalogue of noteworthy production boats illustrated with both photographs and floor plans. This gorgeously illustrated book is the perfect introduction to the possibilities of these exciting sailing machines and an invaluable owner's guide.
