The debate between trimarans and catamarans has been raging for years, with no clear victor in sight. Despite their long-standing popularity as cruising vessels, trimarans have seen a resurgence recently – but what sets them apart from catamarans? The subtle differences lie mainly within the hulls; while monohulls are distinguishable several yards away, distilling one multihull from another requires a closer examination of characteristics such as living space size accommodations, seaworthiness ratings, and speeds achieved on test runs.

With these variables to consider – along with personal preference – deciding which vessel is right may be difficult indeed!
