What are your experiences with catamaran cruisers? Have you chartered, and where? Can anyone really afford these boats, plus afford to operate them? What cruising cats have you sailed, what did you like or dislike about them. There are lots of new cat cruising designs coming out, has anyone sailed them. Looking for advice to have the best experience possible.
Thanks!

We have a Voyage 440 , 2001 and we are on the west coast of Florida, we love it, they are expensive to maintain, and dock space can be costly, although we rarely have to fill the tank up with Diesel so it has some positive points, if you can fix things yourself, great,,, but you do have to pull it at least every three years and paint the bottom... shall I go on? You have to love them. They are worth it and they seem to maintain value more than other boats.


If you live a life of make-believe, your life isn't worth anything until you do something that does challenge your reality. And to me, sailing the open ocean is a real challenge, because it's life or death.
