Another significant difference between regular Boats and Catamarans is that the former has a ballasted keel that keeps them stable while the latter gets their stability from their width.
Catamarans with their two hulls don't have any ballast and are, therefore, much lighter than your typical Boat. The Catamaran's two hulls are much narrower than the heavy, broad hulls of other Boats. All these factors make Catamarans generally much faster than regular Boats.
A Catamaran, for example, will not lean over the way that a Sailboat would, which causes its sail to spill less wind, thus making it more efficient.
The fact that it doesn't lean as much makes the ride more comfortable for the passengers, the main reason why larger motorised Catamarans are often used as passenger and car ferries.
At least a frame joins the two hulls; this is the most basic type but generally by a platform on which people can stand.
Some types of Catamaran even have accommodation and common spaces on the bridge that connect the two hulls.
There are several different types of Catamarans. The bigger Catamarans are used as passenger boats, ferries, and sometimes even for military purposes.
A motor continuously powers these types of Catamarans. An altogether other kind of Catamaran is the new and modern Mega Catamaran.
These are huge Catamaran yachts and enormous luxury boats that can occasionally be spotted on the French Riviera and along the coast of Florida.
On the other side of the Catamaran spectrum is the recreational Catamarans. These are small sailing Catamarans without motors, popular things to use for water sports.
The history of Catamarans goes back thousands of years. Greek engineers are known to have developed a catamaran-like Boat in the 3rd century BC.
Those Boats were used to transport large building materials and obelisks. It is also said that the Greeks had two so-called super galleys, boats so big that they must have been two boats joined together, a Catamaran, in other words.
Catamarans have also been a standard means of transportation in Polynesia, where they consisted of a larger and heavier hull in which people sat joined to a smaller stabilising hull.
'Catamaran' is derived from the Tamil word 'Kattumaram', meaning tied wood in the most literal sense.
There are many Annual Catamaran Sailing races worldwide, the most well-known of which are the America's Cup and the International C-Class Catamaran Championship.
However, the most popular places to do it are off the southeast coast of the USA, in the Mediterranean Sea and the South Pacific.

If you have been Catamaran Sailing before and may have had an injury or accident while participating in Catamaran Sailing, you must declare this when purchasing a policy.
