Why one is ameliorate of the other?
Why is one better over the other?


You cannot get a cat to advantageously itself if you capsize it. And YES, you can capsize a catamaran. With some effort you can get a monohull upright again.

A wave passing under a cat will slap the undersides (broaching) and limit your scamper. In rougher waters, you'll get more speed from a monohull. In calmer waters, a cat is typically faster with less heeling.

There are less opportunities to moor a cat on a land. You'll be using a tender almost everywhere.

Other than that, it's a personal preference.
