Multi vs multi poll

If you won the lottery and the prize was your choice of one of the following, which would you choose:

1 brand new monohull of your choosing, up to 50', or,
1 brand new cruising catamaran of your choosing up to 50'

Post the brand of mono or multi and why you would choose that particular boat below after you fill out the survey.

I would choose either a new Atlantic 48 or a Fastcat 45. Both of those would be alot of fun to try out, especially for FREE.

Can't pick one - don't own.

Want Fastcat but would not wait for the production run...........is there enough money in the win to bribe an earlier production slot?

My first reaction was "get the most expensive one".........and then sell it

My second reaction was a 50 Foot Trimaran........simply because it is a 50 foot Trimaran .........and so far off my "Likely to ever buy" scale......but not on the option list

My third reaction? - I'm gonna sleep on that and Vote tommorow

I'd try to negotiate a deal whereby I'd accept 50% of the cash value of the prize and put it into my present boat ... which I love. Then I'd have my absolutely ideal boat, and she'd be in gret shape. I mean, you can do a LOT of upgrades to what is already a great "platform" for the 1/2 the price of a new 50 footer!

I own a trimaran. There's no choice for me in the poll. What am I, chopped liver?

Seriously, having owned both a very nice cruising mono and my current boat, I'd pick either a big cat or a big tri.

Interesting...nobody has a preference of going from a cat to a mono.

50' Tri please

50' tri...??...dreamboat is a Hammerhead by Chris White (52')

But the Atlantic series cats by Chris also would be high on my wish list......

Can't help but notice the multihull forum is ALWAYS the most populated on here when I look at all the forums listed.

Custom built Harryproa with telescoping mast and an outleader kite set up, not going easy on the carbon. It has two hulls, so I guess it can count. A 50' ww hull would have a 75' lw hull. Would that be included? or would you go average of the two hulls and have a 60'/40' combo, or would you have to go down to 33'/50'

Have done some thinking

Lots of boats I admire and would not object to owning (both bigger and smaller), but I do not "dream" of another boat. Obviously bigger does have certain attractions and advantages, but overall I am honestly happy with what I have.

I guess yer cannot buy contentment


But if I "had" to choose a big no expense spared dream boat, probably an OVNI. Mainly for the shoal draft / lifting Keel because of where I live, but still capable of going anywhere - and I like their slightly quirky looks.....but I would not buy one even if I had the money to spare, for me their are way better / other uses for that sort of cash.

A Cruising Cat? I would not turn a free one down! But not very practical for me, especially a 50 foot b#gger! and to be honest the looks of most of them do not do anything for me, to put it politely (Ok, I appreciate a question of Taste. I've got some ).......but no fundamental objections.

So, where can I buy a ticket?

You're both a Cat' and a Mono', combined in one (er, three?) hull(s).
