Power Catamarans, or "Power Cats" as they are often referred to, are one of the fastest growing segments in the marine industry. Sailing Catamarans have long been the preferred choice of sailors in the Caribbean because of the advantages of having two hulls and a wide beam. For a family enjoying a catamaran experience though, sailing becomes more of a hassle for some. For this reason, many of the yacht charter destinations now offer just as many power cats as sailing cats in their selection. This progression of how the catamarans are used spurred many of the catamaran manufacturers to start producing more power cats.
With two hulls comes an extra wide beam and generally many of the power catamarans built today start at over a 20-foot beam or higher. The Horizon 65 Power Catarmaran for example has over a 24-foot beam, providing a massive platform with which to create a luxurious and comfortable living space. Aside from the extra living space, power cats are also very fuel efficient and generally beat the fuel burns in monohull cruising yachts due to the shape of both hulls. Power cat manufacturers like Horizon, Fountain Pajot, Lagoon, Leopard, and Robertson & Caine are have led the way in terms of popularity and production, however there are many different types of power cat applications including fishing cats to multi-hulled superyachts.
