With a focus on luxury catamarans 65’ or larger, this lavishly illustrated book incorporates interviews with naval architects, interior designers, experienced multihull skippers and seasoned ocean racers to paint the big picture of today’s luxury performance catamarans and their evolution.
Readers will discover what building a large catamaran entails and what considerations are most important in choosing and sailing such a craft, from seaworthiness to aesthetics to practical seamanship and crew training. Tarjan ends with a look at “Future Perspectives” on these remarkable vessels.
