Percentage of multihulls

I'm posting this on the multi and mono forums so I can try to average out the responses. Are there any definitive figures on the percentage of multihulls currently cruising bluewater and also figures on the rate of market growth?

Re: Percentage of multihulls

Not aware of any formal stats.

Using boats for sale on yachtworld 35-55 ft sail boats

Age 1980 - 2000 Catamarans were 3.6% of 4922
Age 2000 - 2017 11% of 7717
Age 2010 - 2017 18% of 2364

Not sure this says anything too specific other than general trend

Re: Percentage of multihulls

On the last 735 Yachts that passed on Açores 13% where catamarans.

Regarding the Pacific puddle jump the number is 17%, according to data from the magazine Yachting world.

In terms of market growth even the mono representatives are saying that the market in overall is struggling. Stronger markets are flat, the rest is shrinking slightly. The cats are growing very fast but volumewise, they are still represent a tiny portion of the market. However the share of cats in value is significant because average unit price of cats is much higher than monos. This why Hanse, Bavaria and Dufour has come into cat market. (Beneteau is already there with Lagoon and Jeanneau is coming next year)

This is data that I gathered unformally from both mono and cat manufacturers sales and marketing executives. Nonetheless I don't anyone has an accurate market data. Lastly, both cat and mono manufacturers are saying that the share of charter segment is increasing very fast.

The fact that all cat manufacturers are short of supply today is not relevant though; this is mostly because Irma has destroyed thousand of boats in the Caribbeans and most of these boats were charter catamarans and the catamaran manufacturers' production capacity is (still) way too small compared to monohulls.
