• Smoother Ride: Almost any Multihull will offer you a smoother ride in rough water due to the dual hull design and the construction's parachute effect as the boat crosscuts the waves. Air trapped between the hulls cushions the impact of re-entry. As the Catamaran does not land on the hull's centerline, as a monohull would, the effects of the impact are spread over a wider area.
• Stability: Load levels on a catamaran can be up to 20% greater than a similar sized monohull. Catamarans are more stable as they do not pivot on the centerline. The footprint is wider, helping to negate the effects of rolling seas.
• More deck space: A catamaran is wider than a monohaul yacht offering additional deck space and sun bathing areas.
• Environment friendly: All power catamarans have less hull resistance in the water, resulting in greater fuel efficiency (comparatively it takes less horsepower and fuel to accomplish optimal performance in a power catamaran than in a power monohull).
• Access to remote areas of the Galapagos Islands: The catamaran's shallow draft design allows access to waterways that most conventional hulls cannot navigate.
