n the following chapter I have attempted to objectively present and illustrate some of the popular cruising catamarans which are available today. Purposely omitting custom boat builders, the multihulls in this section represent about 90% of today's production cats.
My company, Aeroyacht Ltd., an international dealership specializing in multihulls ranging from 35'-200', has seen several new builders come and go over the past few decades; the following yards seem to have passed the test of time. Readers who are shopping for a catamaran have the possibility to consult our web site, www.Aeroyacht.com, which features tests, movies and pictures, and keeps track of the newest developments of popular cruising multihulls.
In my quest to include all manufacturers, we have contacted yards and dealers around the world. This catalogue of cruising cats will permit the reader to glance at features and characteristics and quickly compare one model to the other.

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
