Northerncat, maybe true. I looked around Yachtworld for prices on some comparable cats vs monos. Seems you can find either for around the same price range. Comparing a 45' mono to a 35' cat the accomodations seem close to equal. But, for a fair comparison, what would be some good offshore cat designs, that would be close in seaworthiness to, say, a Pacific Seacraft?

Is this the style of Yacht you're talkin' about Kai ?

Sailboats - 2002 44' ft Pacific Seacraft 44 - Cruiser (Sail) - Houston, TX, 77586 - UsedBoats.com

Seems at $495,000 US for a 4 year old boat, a good quality cat would be cheaper


SCHIONNING LINE HONOURS 14.5M CATAMARAN SOLD
This fast cruising cat was launched in 1999 and presents extremely well. Twin Yanmar diesels, Autostream props and twin steer. Good electronics, solar panels, wind generator and water maker. Large cockpit with hard top and targa bar. Well set up for long distance cruising.


Reduced $395,000 AUD Click picture

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxx

SCHIONNING 11.6 WATERLINE SOLD
A catamaran that has been designed for the cruising sailor that wants performance. Very impressive vessel with all the right equipment to cross oceans with speed and safety. Performance sails and small cord rotating carbon fibre mast. The accommodation layout is also modern and attractive. Upstairs galley and three comfortable double beds in private cabins. Separate toilet and shower with good headroom throughout. Retractable engines fitted in their own engine bays leave a
drag free hull surface for performance sailing. The inventory is very comprehensive and 4 pages long. Email us for your copy today. Very affordable at only
$350,000 AUD Click pictureBN:1431
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Simpson 48'
Designed to inspire with ever changing nautical views and a unique access to the desirable water front lifestyle. Maintenance free high tech composite cedar construction. Solid timber fit out. Powered by twin 27 HP diesels. No expense has been spared to created this easy to handle large sailing vessel.

$495,000 AUD Click pictureBN:1497


Have to say this Simpson above is a fairly spectacular boat if she's the one i'm thinking of.

$495,000 US is also about $627,000 Aud, so you'd have a fair slice of change left over for cold beer, rum and prawn's.

Sorry about that Andrew, would that then be the same tri that was out on the piles near love child a few years back that I think Phil had for sale.

Alloy beams similar looking to "Ben Bolt" and "Assasin" ?

Nope - water dragon was a cat. Peter Kerr 9.5 metre design. Did you own THLC?

Cat man do, Yep, that is the basic idea. Of course, how well do the cats you posted stack up against the PS for quality of build? Honestly, I am asking because I don't know!

Funny thing Dave, In all the years we raced our Schock against the F's and Stilletos they rarely beat us boat for boat around the course although they owed us a minute a mile. Multis are very good on a reaching course in a breeze but slow outside of that. Cruising cats are never quick cause we all wanna carry stuff.

Don't take my word for it check out the finishes yourself.

Figures don't lie and I would bet the Amel would beat most any cruising cat out there.
