Tracing the evolution of the modern multihull.
Some say that markets afford a true test of a productís value, if so, then boat shows are a great place to test the waters. Over the last two decades, in-water show attendees have noticed how catamarans and trimarans have taken over more and more slip space. Apparently, a growing number of boat buyers are convinced that two or three hulls are better than one. Skeptics still question whether this is a case of design breakthrough or more an example of a marketing success. We think itís probably a good dose of each, and itís time to take a close look at whatís really driving this multihull mania.
