cold molded catamarans

Has anyone sailed a wood catamaran, constructed of cold molded epoxy?
They seem to be a lot lighter and less draft.
I am looking at 3 designs.
waarship 48 dutch
grand sud 42 french
and a professional built one off 44 ft french design.

The grand sud has the forward deck with no netting.
Is it more money to insure this type boat?
These catamarans are all 10 years old.
Is there a stressed out factor for cold molded?

Are there any types that you have heard of, that I should know about?
Just trying to do my homework before the big purchase!
