Six Kinds of Cats and Two Kinds of Tris

The analytical method used in Analysis and Comparisons of Cruising Multihulls 2009 to compare various catamarans and trimarans can also be used to compare design approaches of various designers. Itís a sort of reverse engineering thing Ö. look at the results and deduce the approach. Performance and stability are the primary characteristics that can be inferred and indications of how the designer achieves them are often apparent.
The catamaran designers are Brett Crowther, Kurt Hughes, Derek Kelsall, the team of Morrelli and Melvin, John Shuttleworth, and Chris White. The trimaran designers are Ian Farrier and Dick Newick.

The article is written by Calvin H. Markwood, Engineering Analyst for MDI
