Top 6 Catamarans Under 70 Feet [New + Brokerage]

January 13, 2021



The Best Catamarans You Can Buy Between 30 And 70 Feet In The United States.

Sailing catamarans are great cruising and bluewater boats. Although the sailing principles are the same for both catamarans and monohulls, there are many advantages to safety and comfort with sailing catamarans. Among the advantages of owning a catamaran are level sailing, speed, shallow draft, and no roll at anchor. Catamarans are superior to monohulls in terms of redundancy thanks to twin engines and twin rudders. Popular catamaran brands include Excess, Sunreef, Leopard, Lagoon, and Seawind.

We’re featuring the top 6 catamarans under 70 feet, currently for sale with Denison Yachting. Why under 70? These cats have an impressive performance factor, while larger catamarans may focus more on comfort and cruising. Let’s set sail.
