Why Are Some Catamarans Safer Than Others?

written by Terysa November 9, 2020

Welcome to part 4 of our catamaran design series, where we discuss righting moment and structural strength.

Righting Moment and structural strength of Catamarans is important to understand the possibility of a catamaran capsizing and whether it is suitable for offshore sailing. This episode we talk to Antoine Richer, one of Corsair marines Naval Architects to learn how the construction methods affect strength. We also discuss righting moment and how that is affected by the type of catamaran you are sailing. We have learned so much by getting facts from a designer rather than a broker and we hope that you find this a valuable tool if you are considering buying a catamaran, whether new or used.

We have more episodes in this series to come, so please give us a like, a 👍 and subscribe to the channel if you like what we do.
