Racer/Cruisers and Performance Cruisers are light and fast, although sometimes at the expense of comfort and carrying capacity. We list these boats by length (feet): Under 25, 25-31, 32-36, 37-40, 41-49, and Over 49.
Beach and Pocket Cruisers
Who says you need a big boat to do serious cruising! Many sailors circumnavigate in Pocket Cruisers or spend weekends gunkholing the coast and islands in Beach Cruisers.
Although you sacrifice carrying capacity, one of the Cruising Trimaran designs can provide the exhilaration and fast passages that come with sheer Multihull Speed.
