Catamarans: The Complete Guide for Cruising Sailors

International Marine Publishing


By Gregor Tarjan

The modern cruising catamaran has arrived

The arguments are over and the verdict is in – cruising catamarans comprise a rapidly growing percentage of the cruising fleet worldwide. Their advantages of space, stability, speed, and handling under power are truly compelling, and modern cats are every bit as reliable as monohulls. This long overdue, in-depth guide will help you choose and cruise the right catamaran for your needs.

"An authoritative guide for novices and experienced sailors; the best book written on the subjects since the early 1990s." – "Trimaran" Jim Brown, renowned multihull designer

"In Catamarans, Gregor Tarjan shares his enthusiasm for yachts with two hulls, based on years of sailing all types. An excellent introduction." – Dick Newick, legendary catamaran and trimaran designer

"If you are contemplating spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a cruising catamaran, the small price of this book is probably the best investment you could possibly start with." – from the Foreword by Charles K. Chiodi, publisher of Multihulls Magazine
