I've been tracking this actively for the past couple of years. The recommendations on this thread were all about economics, not about seaworthyness. That's actually a positive trend.
Cats, unfortunately, cost about twice as much as monos. You're buying
twice as many hulls, twice as many engines, twice as many rudders....
The grim reality here is that more people want to cruise
cats than can afford to cruise
cats. This isn't the forum's fault.
Nobody's been bashing cats on this thread. They've just been comparing the budget
to the plan and saying that there's not enough wiggle room for the OP to purchase
his dream boat
and still make the plan work
That's reality. Handle it.
