100% power, in paper and digital version

Launching a power-only special is an idea that has been on our minds for a long time: the power multihull market, after a chaotic start, is now in full swing. From the most modest units through to superyachts, architects and builders are now constantly launching new models - which are (at last) enjoying commercial success. So in this issue, we’re offering you the 2021 Buyer’s Guide of the entire world production. This special edition also aims to be a virtual boat show. In our digital version, you will discover videos, images and web links of all the power multihulls presented here. More than ever, paper and digital versions are complementary, now is the time to convince you! One clarification: we obviously don’t want to replace the “real boat shows”: our friends from the International Multihull Show are partners of this issue and will also be partners for our very next Sailing Buyer’s Guide. Enjoy reading!

Power is fun !

The scene dates back to the early 2000s in Monaco: one of our journalists, notably a sailing enthusiast, was invited aboard a motor catamaran some 65 feet long by 28 feet in beam. Nothing exceptional in the land of superyachts, obviously, but our boat tester remembers being impressed by the volume. Though it was at the moment of starting up that he succumbed to the charm of the power multihull. How easy it was! Two engines, less windage (with no mast, no shrouds, no headsail rolled up on its forestay), and then from the flybridge, the view of the water was truly panoramic, making the slightest maneuver in the harbor… like child’s play. In short, ten minutes after boarding the boat, our journalist was seduced by the concept: the motor multihull is a blessing for lovers of comfortable sailing. One week after this test, he took his powerboat license... Twenty years ago, not many of us believed in powercats - the powerboat market was dominated by high-powered craft and superyachts with a gargantuan appetite for fuel and offering... only one hull! As you will see when you read this very first special edition of Multihulls World entirely devoted to power catamarans and trimarans alone, that era is well and truly over. More volume, more comfort both when under way and at anchor, more speed, more privacy, and... much lower fuel consumption: So? Are you ready for the multipower adventure? Fair winds,
