YACHT STYLE Issue 53: Catamarans Shine in ‘Multihulls Issue’ 2020


Yacht Style’s second annual Multihulls Issue throws the spotlight on power and sailing catamarans, as the boating industry pushes on.

Considering how sustainability has pushed to the fore again during this difficult period, Yacht Style’s annual ‘Multihulls Issue’ seems to have come at a good time and we’re delighted to profile the latest updates on these twin-hulled cruisers, whose appeal goes far beyond impressive economy.

With many of these catamaran builders developing increasingly large motor yachts, powercats have been making headlines since our last multihull issue, so we’ve split our cover story between power and sail.
