Sailor's Multihull Guide - To the World of Cruising Catamarans & Trimarans This is an extremely useable guide to not just multihull techniques and information but also to the models themselves, featuring layouts and profiles on many, many multihull models. We are fortunate to have been allowed to use some of the model information present here in our Gallery. Kevin Jeffrey and Chuck Kanter have done a great job.

The cell below this reflects Amazon's recommendations on books to buy based on what other books you have been ordering from this web site.

The Cruising Multihull Chris White's accessible approach will interest both would-be and longtime owners of multihulls. Chapters include thorough discussions of multihull design and construction, stability, rigs, auxiliary power, seamanship, and safety. The book also includes an illustrated catalog of ready-to-sail multihulls. While we don't necessarily agree with everything Chris has to say, this is a "must read" book for the serious multihull enthusiast.
Multihull Cruising Fundamentals Rick White, et al, have again given multihullers what they need. The official text of the American Sailing Association's Cruising Multihull Standard (CM) Certification, this guide addresses everything beginning-to-intermediate multihull cruisers need to know to sail and charter these swift, versatile vessels. Covering trailerable and cruising catamarans and trimarans, it discusses such topics as systems, draft, capsize prevention, turning radius, maintenance, handling boats under sail or power, docking and mooring, heavy weather and reefing.
Cruising On More Than One Hull This book will be a big help in how to compare, select and sail catamarans and trimarans for cruising. Many find it's unique design classification system helpful. Chuck Kanter is well known in the multihull cruising milieu for his personal ownership, cruising and surveying of multihulls.
Independent Energy Guide - Electrical Power for Home- Boat- & Rv Kevin Jeffrey helps you design the ideal independent power system for a home, boat or RV. His approach gives a guide to power systems which use the least power, facilitate production, and work well.
Chapman Piloting - Seamanship & Small Boat Handling (Deluxe Slipcased Edition)
Chapman Piloting - Seamanship & Small Boat Handling (62nd)
It really is the bible! Written by Charles F. Chapman, Chapman Piloting gives  both the new boater and seasoned pro what they need to know. "The 62nd edition includes fully updated sections on navigation with satellite technology, procedures for emergencies, and maritime laws and regulations. In addition to the thorough chapters on boating basics, safety, the art of seamanship, waves and weather, piloting and navigation, electronic equipment, and the boating community, subjects are wonderfully illustrated, cross-referenced, and supplemented by a comprehensive glossary of boating terms. Without question, Chapman Piloting remains a standard text for boating schools and has long stood as a ready and dependable first mate in wheelhouses of powerboaters and sailboaters alike. --Byron Ricks --This text refers to the hardcover edition of this title." Read it, remember 10% of it, and you'll be way ahead of most of the sailors out there.

Also consider these titles. Each has a lot to offer and should be on your multihull shelf.


Boats- Beaches- Bars & Ballads [BOX SET] Yes - Jimmy Buffett! We've never been able to sail or cruise a day without our Buffett dosage. This set has almost all our favorite songs.
Banana Wind
Barometer Soup
Before The Beach
Songs You Know By Heart [GOLD CD]
More Buffett if you don't want to spend the money on the set above. If we had to choose one, it would be "Songs You Know By Heart".
Classic & Unreleased Collection [BOX SET] Take this Willy Nelson set with you. They may not be sailing songs but we can't do without him either.
Stardust [GOLD CD] If we had to choose one Willy Nelson CD, it would be this one. Nobody ever figured that Willy could do these older classics like "Stardust" justice and, boy, did he!
Greatest Hits James Taylor! Almost enough said except that we don't know how anyone can not make "Fire and Rain" one of their all time favorite songs.
