This book is an objective, in-depth reference work that should not be missing in any nautical library.Modern multihulls are now accepted as the safest and most comfortable cruising sailboats. The author, who is a trained yacht designer and expert sailor, discusses all the latest catamaran developments and reviews basic concepts of design, construction and important multihull characteristics.One part of this book surveys desirable attributes and what to look for when considering purchasing a catamaran. There is even a catalogue of noteworthy production boats, which will help readers compare, rate and evaluate different types. Full of informative illustrations, graphs and spectacular photos, the book examines subjects such as multihull seamanship and how it differs from sailing a ballasted boat.With an influential foreword by international guru Charles Chiodi, this long overdue book is a perfect introduction for monohull sailors to the possibilities of these exciting sailing machines, but at the same time serves as an invaluable reference guide for catamaran owners alike.
