Thank you in advance.
Cost depends on location and time of year. Do a google
search on "charter catamaran Florida" and you will get a lot of hits.
To some extent stability and comfort are a function of wind
direction and wave size. In almost all conditions a cat will be more stable and comfortable than a larger monohull, but there may be some exceptions, especially if the current
put the waves at the wrong angle.
I have a cat, live on it, and am very happy. As others have pointed out even with perfect wind speed and direction you will almost always get there faster in a power boat.
One consideration is you seem to be interested in a very short time on the boat. You will have a much longer range in a power boat, be it cat or monohull, than a sail boat.
