Welcome To Balance Catamarans. Balance Catamarans produces high-speed catamarans of exceptional quality for oceanic adventure travel. Our design and build philosophy is to strike a careful balance between comfort, performance, quality and value. We build the finest performance voyaging catamarans in the world. Bar none.   Catamarans can be between percent faster than their monohull counterparts. Issues with catamarans over mono-hulls are that they can take more time to turn. How Is The Speed Measured? Boats commonly measure speed using GPS tracking devices to measure distance traveled. Speed while sailing is measured in knots.

Catamaran Sailing Techniques Part 3: Anchoring and picking up a mooring – with Nigel Irens Febru Among the plus sides of cruising in a catamaran is that inherent shallow draught.   If you are like us, you probably have a library bookshelf dedicated just for sailing and catamarans publications. Our catamaran book collection started as an obsession and has now grown to over volumes. In fact when Gregor Tarjan – founder of Aeroyacht discovered that there was no updated modern book on catamarans, he wrote his own. To be more precise he wrote two books .

In the twentieth century, the catamaran inspired an even more popular sailboat. Hobie Alter, introduced the catamaran to the masses with "a small catamaran that you could easily take out into the water and sail and take back in." In he produced the first pound Hobie and two years later the larger and even more successful Hobie I can say with some measure of pleasure that, so far, of the over catamarans we have sold at The Multihull Company and Balance Catamarans that not a single customer of ours has capsized – at least that I know of! This is quite amazing when you consider that we specialize in live-aboard sailors, adventurers, and performance cat enthusiasts.

"Predicted and Measured Performance of a Day Sailing Catamaran", iV S Bradfield, Southampton University Yacht Research Report No 25, March 6. "The Development of Instruments for Use on Sailing Yachts", J R C Turner, HISWA Symposium on Yacht-architecture, Amsterdam Author: Colin Palmer.

The Tornado catamaran was used as the subject for these investigations and the aim of this research was to write a velocity prediction program for the Olympic variant Tornado class catamaran yacht. The Length on Water Line or waterline length is an objective criterion to gage the speed performance of a boat.

This is the maximum length of the underwater hull of a boat. On a multihull, the Length on Water Line is measured on the hull starting from the end of the bow to the tip of the stern. The goal is speed, performance and offshore comfort, both in the strong stuff and, more importantly, in whispering airs that park-up monohulls.

“A good performance catamaran can sail to times faster than windspeed in some conditions, meaning less time motoring and more time sailing,” says Greg Young, designer of the TAG An autonomous catamaran, based on a modified Prindle day-sailing catamaran and fitted with several sensors and actuators was built to Predicted and measured performance of a daysailing catamaran.

Many people who own sailing catamarans certainly think so. To state the obvious, the one thing all sailing catamarans have in. These two catamarans are both luxuriously equipped. The Lagoon is very spacious with lots of freeboard, high bridgedeck clearance, beamy hulls and a longer water line.

The Helia is markedly smaller, lighter and has narrower hulls which translates into less whetted surface area and therefor, higher performance. But a catamaran's only available response to pressure of a wind gust is to accelerate.

So the boat has to be very strong to hold together. Cored construction makes the catamaran strong and very stiff. Stiffness gives a catamaran good performance. Consider that the catamaran's hulls are actually two boats joined together by a bridge deck.

As the owner of The Multihull Company, a global catamaran yacht brokerage firm, Phil Berman has overseen the sale of hundreds of new and used catamarans. He is also the owner of Balance Catamarans, a boutique brand of high-end performance voyaging catamarans.

Best Cruising Catamaran. Another category that showcased great diversity in design and execution was the cruising cats. The HH 55 from China unanimously claimed the prize. High-Performance Trimaran Sailing in St. Maarten. The foot trimaran Shockwave was providing an awesome ride on a windy race around St.

Maarten, until things went very. The result is a boat with a dual-performance “sweet spot” that is also found in the Johnstone-designed J/22 and the J/ Other standouts include the foot full-keel Ensign, Sandy Douglass’s Thistle and Flying Scot, W.D.

Schock’s L and the S&S-designed Lightning, originally created for racing on Skaneateles Lake in upstate New. I am looking for plans for a ' catamaran to daysail. Love the Hobie 21 SE with wings, but they are hard to find. Beam around feet would be ideal. Boat does not need to be folding or quickly demountable.

I don't want or need a cuddy cabin or any hull accomadations. I like the Duobut it has a cuddy. of 36 of the catamarans. This work was published as “Ratios and Cruising Catamarans” in Multihulls World no. 23, April/May As time went on, I added data for a total of over cruising catamarans from various magazines, revised the analysis and submitted it for publication as “Theory and Statistics.

Condor Express, INCAT Hull, an 86m car- passenger wave piercing catamaran, the centrebow in front is obvious (Photo: Barry Quince). experimental facilities of drop tests at University of. Great book. A must read before sailing if you are a novice catamaran sailor. Has a lot of useful information about buying a sailboat, sailing, tuning your catamaran, etc.

The book is comprehension and also gives an introduction into catamaran racing. The book is well written and the pictures/figures are s:   High-performance cruising cats: High-performance cruising catamarans typically have efficient daggerboards or centerboards, deeper rudders, less windage and less displacement.

They can go to windward at a degree TWA in nearly all conditions. A performance cruising catamaran can typically outsail even the best keelboats to windward. Few place their boats in charter and intend to do serious blue water voyaging.

While the market is smaller for such catamarans (I estimate about 20 percent of the total catamaran market), the supply of used performance cruising cats is always a lot lower. True performance cats are never getting “phased out” of charter fleets in bulk.

performance, yet desire high daily averages and passage times, which should be as short as possible. When choosing a large multihull, sailors look, above all else, for safety and comfort, long before the consideration for flat-out speed comes into the discussion.

Nevertheless, performance is a highly important design consideration. Catamaran Features & Performance 3. Describe the accommodations of a typical catamaran and their effect on comfort and safety. Compare differences in operating and living aboard a monohull and catamaran of similar length.

Describe the impact that a catamaran’s deck structures may have on visibility from the helm. It's the debate as old as time and Balance Catamarans offers the option for sailors to pick if they want daggerboards or keels in the build of their catamarans.

But previousely sailors would have to weigh the pros and cons of each option in order to know what they are sacrificing in performance, however, no fact sheet with specific comparisons existed, until now.

If you value comfort over speed, then the Lagoon 42 is for you. These catamarans aren’t built for performance, but on a trade wind route, with knots of true. A catamaran offers flat, even decks, wide, safe passages, and no climbing when having to move from bow to stern.

Tips for Sailing a Catamaran With its large area exposed to wind and its low draft, a sailing catamaran can drift off easily so anchoring should be performed as swiftly as possible, especially if the wind blows from the side. Hydrodynamic performance of these vessels is a major parameter to enhance their speed, economic and environmental aspects.

One of the strategic ways to improve the hydrodynamic performance of catamarans is using hydrofoil in their hulls (hydrofoil supported catamaran .
