Multihull Vs. Monohull

There are a lot of fish in the sea, and also a lot of boats sailing on top of it. There are small boats, big boats, sail boats, boats with engines, pretty much any kind of boat you can think of can be purchased for your fresh or saltwater adventures, but what kind of boat is best? Breaking it down to what is perhaps the most simply distinction between different kinds of boats are the terms multihull and monohull. If you are new to the world of boating, and are not familiar with nautical terms, we will define them below, otherwise feel free to skip past the definitions.


Hull: The main body of a ship or other vessel, including the bottom, sides, and deck but not the masts, superstructure, rigging, engines, and other fittings.

Monohull: A monohull is the most common boat you will see on the water. Only one part of the boat enters the water.

Multihull: In comparison, the multihull has more than one part that enters the water. Two hulls enter the water. A common example of a multihull boat is a catamaran.

Both multihull and monohull boats have their own advantages and disadvantages when it comes to boating. While both are good options, each appeals to a different group of people. To make sure you into the right boat for you, we will look at the advantages of both types of boats.

Multihull: The main advantage that comes with a multihull boat is stability. It is much more difficult for a multihull catamaran to tip over, even in severe weather. While it is not impossible, if a wave can flip your typical multihull boat, than it is a storm that you shouldn’t be sailing in to begin with. This also makes them better for those who have never piloted a boat before. It gives them more safety while on the water, rather it is on a sea or lake.

Monohull: A multihull is great for entertainment and relaxation, a monohull however is built more for work or speed in many cases. A monohull works better as a cargo ship or as a speedboat. They can also be closer to the water, though with the right customization a multihull can also have this advantage.

If you are looking for a boat for entertainment, or for a business centered around numerous clients, the stability of a multihull will be your best bet in most cases. A monohull will tend to have more limited deck space, accommodating less customers unless you get a large vessel compared to the number a smaller multihull can easily carry.
