Budgeting for a Catamaran
When you don’t know what you need to know, how
do you get started? We begin with an outline and a
checklist to help you make a plan of action
customized for you. Beginning with a budget plan, we
will discuss the costs involved in the purchase of a
catamaran. We’ll give you some examples of various

Once you have the budget in mind, the next thing you
need to consider is where you plan to sail with the
boat, near coastal or blue water. Phil Berman,
President and founder of The Multihull Company will
give you his perspectives on just what type of
catamaran you need to sail in various parts of the
world. Whether you plan on cruising in the
Caribbean, the Mediterranean, or the South Pacific.
Explaining the different possibilities depending on
where you want to go.
The Top Ten Features for short handed sailing.
Over the last decade of catamaran sailing Jeff and
Jean will share their top ten features to look for when
selecting your catamaran. From the perspective of
live aboard sailors we discuss the various trade offs
you need to decide on for the comfort and safety of
sailing with just two people handling the boat.
Conquering Your Fears, handling emergencies
We will lead a discussion of your fears, from man
over board, to night passages and more. We have an
open discussion with the audience listing the things
that may be holding you back from living your dream.
We will get these fears out in the open and show you
how to handle them. With tips from handling a single-
handed man over board situation to avoiding heavy
weather we’ll show you how to acknowledge your
fear and conquer it.
Catamaran Handlings Tips
Docking, anchoring and even picking up a mooring
ball can be different on a Catamaran then a
monohull. We will demonstrate how to make it easy
with just two people handling the boat. You would be
surprised to find out that many self-taught sailors
have been doing things the hard way we show you
how to put a little spin on things in ways you may not
have thought of to make it easier.
