Catana 401 vs. 411

I am in the buying process for a catamaran and try to collect as much info as possible. This forum is really great! Besides the Voyage 380 and the Admiral 38, I am interested in the smaller Catanas. It seems that the older 411 lies in a higher price range than the newer 401. Difference in quality?Does anyone have a theory regarding this? And what about the smallest Catana, teh 381. Is that a good alternative? Any thoughts?

If you can comfortably afford and control the waterline length, I'd go for that.

I just love waterline length, and the Catana's have a good pedigree[Crowther]

How much difference between the 401 and the 411?

There is a Catana owners group on Yahoo. It is supposed to be for owners only but, ask nicely, and I'm sure they'll let you in.... catana_owners_club : Catana Owners Club
