Are Catamarans different to drive?
It is true that Catamarans are different to drive than a mono-hull, however it is easy to learn the difference. Anyone who drives a Mono-hull can drive a Cat - NO SWEAT! You only have to ask a current Blackdog Cat owner, and they'll tell you! Blackdog Cat, or our nearest dealer will happily explain the difference, and take you for a demonstration, you'll be a pro in no time.
Can Cats handle rough seas?
One of the defining factors of a Blackdog Cat is how soft they ride when it gets choppy. Time and time again we prove during demos, that you can count on your Blackdog Cat to get you through the rough stuff, come see for yourself.
Are Cats bad in a head sea?
The key to the soft ride that cats exhibit is in the tunnel, and more importantly the air that is trapped inside the tunnel as the boat meets the water. Size for size, head to head, a cat will outperform a mono-hull any day.
Do Cats track well in a following sea?
A catamaran tracks exceptionally well in a following sea. Mono hulls tend to plow into the front wave as it comes down, and can broach down the face. Cats are more buoyant in the bow, and have a wider, more stable "stance" in the water. We have put a lot of time into developing our hulls. On the plane, they lift the bows well out of the water, this helps prevent bow steer in all conditions.
HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON.
