I will post another thread about the whole washing machine thing :)

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

Yes, and I didn't mean 'compare' in a 'which is better' sense... just that it would be great to experience how it all feels on two so different yachts.

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

Yes, indeed, they are two very different boats.

However, both manufacturers do emphasize the comfort aspect (Outremer even goes as far as saying 'unequaled comfort'), so I do think they might...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

Yachtworld lists a 2018 Amel 50 for roughly the same price as a 2012 Outremer 5x. It would be absolutely great to experience being on the water with, for example, these two boats. Easier said than...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

I recall seeing a motion sickness study talking about this as well. (Apparently with virtual reality on the rise there's more energy than before going into motion sickness research.)

Anyway, they...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

Oh, that's my gut feeling as well, that it would be safer. It's just another theme I'm interesting in: how to get more empirical instead of anecdotal evidence. About just about anything sailing...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

That summary would seem likely (at least for a non-multihull sailor like me). The challenge, I think, is to actually establish this as some kind of a fact.

It's difficult.

More of the anecdotal stuff on a Lagoon 52S, but... 50+ knots of TWS and the people in the cat are just like 'whooaa!'.. but standing inside in their normal everyday clothes without holding on to...

If the end result, as in your example, would show...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

Yes, absolutely! We'll have to get some multihull sailing time to actually figure out what we think about it.

I'm curious about the more scientific aspect of this, though, as well. In addition to...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

Adding to the direct effects of heeling, I was actually thinking a lot about moving around inside the boat. With a decent amount of heel, it's not that easy. Doing this and that task (preparing food...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

First I have to say, I was thinking more about 50-60 ft cats. The question was not in reference to our current boat!

Secondly, I think it's a very fair point! Since most of us have budget...

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

The idea that ”don’t listen to anyone” is boring 😄 The idea that ”there is no meaningful difference” is counterintuitive (even though it might, of course, be true).

Re: Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

It would be interesting to know statistics about non-fatal injuries. Fatalities are (luckily) rare, and capsizes even more rare, but what a brilliant sales argument for multihulls, if they as an...

Catamaran vs Monohull Crew Safety

Cheers,

I'm in the initial stages of considering moving from a monohull to a catamaran (maybe some years down the road).

When googling catamaran safety issues, the by far most mentioned topic...
