As with the other boats mentioned, power cats have advantages and disadvantages. They are not as fast as a powerboat nor do they offer as much deck space as a sailing catamaran. But the advantage of the Power cat is that it combines both strengths of the powerboat and sailing catamaran. Well the power cat is very comfortable and smooth at 15 knots. It has the capability to get up to 25 knots, if the conditions are good. They offer more deck space than a powerboat so you are not crammed into a small space. Majority of power cats have a flybridge allowing more area to enjoy. When the waters of the sea get a little more rough, the power cat handles them with ease. Unlike the powerboat that I had recently been on and was sick when returning from a day in the sun. The power catamaran has the ability to turn on a dime. Majority of the larger power catamarans have a salon, some type of bathroom(s), and areas to change. And lastly, and most importantly, they are extremely fuel efficient. They utilize less fuel than a powerboat nowhere near breaking the bank when taking it out day to day.
