low-drag powerboats give a much better ride and require
far less power than other types for target speeds
of up to 2.5 to 3.0 times the vessel's hull speed.
Excellent economy, a superior ride, and a more extensive
cruising range are possible with these displacement
of those catamaran powerboats are simply regular single
hull powercats with the middle of the hull chopped out.
While that may be slightly better than the single-hulled
boat, it is still not quite right. Multihull powerboaters
need to be able to take advantage of our fresh look
at what the problems really are and what the best solution
might be. Often by taking what we know about low drag
hulls for sailboats, and applying it to power boats,
a better power multihull results. See this article on
higher speed is desired, then planing hulls become
the better choice. Many of the cats can use either
displacement or planing hulls depending on the speed
to be optimized.
power multihulls can also be found in the charter
