The Rise of the Multihull
Whether you like a traditional monohull or believe that things come better in twos, it’s hard to ignore the relentless rise in the popularity of Multihull sailing yachts and power boats. Multihulls are steadily gaining market share across the globe and manufacturers are working hard to meet the increased demand. Groupe Beneteau has a target to double multihull production capacity by 2020 (from 2016) and is on track to meet this goal with 50% already complete. Here at Ancasta we’ve seen our multihull business grow in proportion over the same period and we don’t see this trend slowing anytime soon.
Why have Multihulls become so popular?
Inevitably, there are many factors that have contributed to this trend. Firstly, many customers are looking for more fulfilling and luxurious lifestyle experiences and so the importance of comfy and spacious areas in which to relax has become more significant. We have also seen the emergence of high performance catamarans appearing in prestigious international sailing events, including the America’s Cup, which, no doubt, will be adding to the enhanced kudos of the multihull market. Finally, advances in technology and more economic manufacturing has lead the way to multihulls that offer a truly remarkable vessel for owners and charter guests, at fantastic prices.
Here at Ancasta we offer a variety of multihull purchase options.
We are official dealers for new Lagoon and McConaghy Catamarans,both sail and power, and we have a large selection of pre-owned multihulls to choose from.
