Renowned for its stability, a pre-owned catamaran is perfect for all your cruising needs. Speed is not forgotten either: as soon as you ease off the throttle, a multihull speeds across the water thanks to its smaller wetted surface area. It’s the ideal boat for sailing in the trade winds, even if purists will regret the monohulls’ ability to go upwind. But make no mistake: a racing monohull like a Beneteau First will certainly sail better upwind than a catamaran, but its upwind performance is almost identical to that of a cruising monohull. If equipped with daggerboards or well-worked appendages, as on the Seawind, Excess or Neel trimarans, the multihull will deliver excellent performance at all points of sail.
When choosing a pre-owned catamaran, the first thing to consider is your sailing program. Sail Tahiti’s DNA is to advise you according to your wishes, the composition of your crew and your level of experience.
