Is a catamaran of about 13 meters or a monohull of about 15 meters better? Good question, hard to answer for two boats so different to the point that they need to be compared at different lengths. In fact, the catamaran for the same length has a larger usable area than the monohull. Difficult to compare them, we said.

Fountaine Pajot MY5 with two hulls lots of extra space

Category: catamaran with Flybridge

Here you are aboard the motor catamaran Fountaine Pajot MY5 (m. 12.91 x 6 meters) and immediately you will understand that in boats with two hulls the space is about the 50% higher than that of a conventional monohull. If then, as in this case, there is also a Fly (terrace above the roof of the boat) then the useful space increases even more. And there is no better example to call a boat a true second home on the water. And what a boat! The great strength of the Fountaine Pajot MY5 is in comfort with a bright and spacious interior. Every volume on board is designed to provide a luxurious and practical lifestyle. This catamaran has a full galley and a wheelhouse that opens onto the cockpit; the cabins are spacious and include a master suite.

Trawler boats, which originated in the United States and spread around the world, are synonymous with boats as comfortable as houses. And their external and internal shape and layout also resembles them. The Beneteau Swift Trawler (m. 14.74 x 4.50) is a perfect example of a boat=second home. Its solid appearance inspires an immediate feeling of security. The impression is confirmed on board with a clear and extremely practical deck plan. Wide walkways and numerous handrails ensure great peace of mind for passengers. The large fly can accommodate up to four people facing the sea, in the front rows when sailing. Modular as desired, the cockpit invites you to take advantage of the pleasure of experiencing the sea. The
Swift Trawler 47
has three cabins and a convertible sofa, and can offer up to 8 extremely comfortable bunks.
