How Do The Most Popular 50ft Production Sailing Catamarans Compare?

McConaghy S49We seem to be getting more requests for large sailing catamarans. The more popular sailing catamarans in the 50ft range are Lagoon 52, Outremer 51, Leopard 48, Nautitech 542, McConaghy S49 and Fountaine Pajot Saba 50. We made a chart to compare the specifications and prices with some of the positives and negatives of each catamaran. Some of the designs are huge in volume, have lots of entertainment areas inside and out while others are more performance oriented with much less interior volume and others are more pricey. A good all-rounder seems to be the McConaghy S49. They have maintained the McConaghy performance pedigree, while optimizing the interior space and volume, resulting in well tought out accommodations. We would love to hear your comments. .
