1. Very little sailing experience(dinghy only).
2. He wants a CATAMARANS, likes CATAMARANS.
3. $180K budget.
4. ex UK Navy. (Engineer)

I am a mono sailor through and through, so I will always tend to LEAN to a mono, also I think they would be better off with a mono given his budget as you seem to get a better boat for your buck.

I donít want to start an argument, but would like to be constructive as it is going to happen no matter what.
How about....
