The TRUTH about Buying a CATAMARAN. Don’t be LIED TO..

I wonder at the size and agility of the cat which has been placed amongst the pigeons. This video took quite a bit of work to pull together, we did about 10 revisions and I’m still not 100% happy with it but it goes a long way towards describing what I think is a good and safe multihull sailing philosophy.

  1. Spectacular advice Riley.. Not just because I agree with you… But because its all backed up by real numbers and coming from 10’s of thousands of miles of learning..
    I agree we can’t blame the manufacturers, They build what people will to buy.. The task is to educate buyers to ask the right questions and prioritise the right things in a boat…
    Great stuff mateđź‘Ť

  2. Riley, Thanks for a glimpse of the complexity of sailing that really isn’t evident in your travel videos. Good info to think about. I am not a sailor but I love technical discussions on any subject. Very informative.
    Stay safe and

  3. Thank you Riley! You have confirmed my assumptions of what type of catamaran I really need! I won’t say which boat but it’s priorities are in performance and short handed sailing in a sheltered cockpit! I also purchased Tarjan’s book as well as Cornell’s 200,000 miles! Cheers Mate!

  4. Really great vid Riley and Elayna! I wish I had seen it a year ago before we bought our slightly over weight, under powered but very comfortable cat. But will be useful for the next boat!

  5. FANTASTIC RILEY, SOMETIME LETS TALK ABOUT BUILDING ONE.FERRO, STAINLESS. TOUR TUTORIAL WAS VERY INSTRUCTIVE AND A LITTLE INTIMIDATING ON THE TECHNICAL STUFF, BUT AS YOU SAID PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE, TIME ON THE MACHINE EVOLVES SKILL. BEST TO THE FAMILY MATE.
