Beneteau 50.5 vs ?? Catamaran

I know of a group planning a Greek Islands trip on three charter yachts. They are planning to take a Beneteau 50.5 for 4 couples

I would like to suggest a catamaran for at least one of the three boats, which of course can be chartered in a shorter length for similar space, but would be a similar price to the 50.5 in charter.

What I want to know is what length cat will at least match the comfort of a Beneteau 50.5 for up to 4 couples. If I push for the cat, I don't want anyone getting torqued off that it is too small, uncomfortable berths, tiny heads, etc.

I'm not sure what models cat (if any) are available - I'm just now exploring the idea.

Re: Beneteau 50.5 vs ?? Catamaran

I think I would be looking toward a lagoon 450/Helia 44 rather than a L400 which would be OK.

Salina 48 would be hard to beat but don't know how charter rates compare.

Will make for a great review comparison.

Cheers

Thanks for your reply. I just got notification that cats are not an option on this particular trip

FYI a 38 foot cat ie. Lagoon 380 will give you as much space as a 50 foot mono. A 45 footer will be more space than any 50 foot mono could ever provide.
