They are slow to come, but they are coming. We’re talking, of course, about cruising power catamarans. They’ve been popular for some time in places like New Zealand and Europe, but they are popping up more and more in the U.S. waters. One clue to their growing acceptance among the more conservative yachting community is the fact that a past Commodore of the New York Yacht Club, owned a large power cat and cruised it all over the Med for several seasons this decade. There is probably no geographic area of American that is more hidebound, or mossbacked, than is the state of Maine, yet that is precisely where this cat is obviously built. Who said “As goes Maine so goes the nation?” That may be going a bit too far in this case, but it does give one pause.
