Which Is The Best Cruising Catamaran?

written by Terysa September 18, 2019

What IS the best cruising catamaran? Well in this episode we reveal all. The definitive result, so far. If you don’t want to run through the whole video, this is the top 3:

09:12 3rd place
10:52 2nd place
12:43 1st place

Over the last three months we have been reviewing every cruising catamaran we could. Our plan is to choose one of these as our next boat. We developed an app, we asked YOU to review the boats along with us. So far we have over 1000 online reviews. This is now the largest collection of reviews anywhere on the internet. The results are yours, not ours. No bias, no dealer spin, just averages from your scores.

The job is not over. We are now heading to more boat shows to look at lots of models. So Knysna, Maverick, Majestic, Antares and many others are still to come.

Hey Marko! Thanks for your comment. The Bali seems great for island hopping and being at anchor, but it’s not on our shortlist as it’s not really designed for long term liveaboard cruising. But if your plans don’t include that, then it’s a great choice!

So if money wasn’t an issue would it be an Amel 55 my fave mono or Outremar51/Seawind 1600.

Teresa,
I really like your reviews and to put the tape measure on the bed and get the size is super important to me, however I would lover to have the height from top of bed to the ceiling as well because my wife is claustrophobic.
I know that sailing is not part of your review but I would be very interested how rocky the boat is comparing for instance your favorite performance cats with for instance nautitech/ your highest ranked cruising cat
