The majority of boats on the market – both power and sail – are monohulls that is have one hull. But there are many manufacturers of multihulls and catamarans and these boats are very popular. Jade provides boat loan for both monohull and multihull boats.
Multihulls are available across many boat categories and for many lengths. In sailing boats, catamarans are available from small single-handed craft through the high performance racing yachts classes and right up to luxury yachts. Catamaran yachts are generally considered easier to sail than monohulls making them a popular choice for many adventurers heading off on solo voyages.
In the power boat categories, cats are very popular in the off-shore fishing boat market with brands such as Stessco. Noosa Cat and Voyager. But power multihulls are available from many manufacturers in the under 30 foot class and well over 30 foot. Catamarans are extremely popular for passenger vessels and tourist businesses.
The natural buoyancy created by a multihull make these craft very stable. But they can capsize in many cases and under certain water conditions so safety gear is essential.
You may find that catamarans tend to be more expensive than the equivalent monohull. This is not just because they are perhaps more rare, it’s also due to the more complex build. For a start you do have more than one hull to manufacture but also the shape of the walls and other aspects can make the fit out a more complex process.
If tossing up between a multi or a mono, contact Jade Boat Loans for a quote on both options to assist with your decision-making. Alternatively, if browsing multihulls online, use our Jade Boat Loans calculator for rough monthly repayment estimates on different boats. It’s a great tool to compare repayments on different boat prices.

Getting a Multihull Loan
Just because multihulls have 2 hulls doesn’t mean it’s too hard to get a cheap loan for these vessels. Jade Boat Loans provides loans for all types of multihulls whether you’re purchasing a fishing cat or a live aboard, luxury sailing catamaran like the Seawind 1370.
Jade provides resources to assist with your purchase planning and a number of options in getting your loan before or after you purchase.
To assist with your planning, use our free boat loans calculator. It’s available right here on our website and is accessible from any device which has an internet connection. You simply input the price of the cat or how much you want for your loan, the amount of time you want to repay the loan and our current cheap interest rate on boat finance. You’ll then see a repayment estimate displayed. This is only a rough ballpark (please refer to the instructions with the calculator) but is very useful.
- If you’re comparing different makes and models of new cats with different price tags, the calculator will show you how your repayments may differ from one to the other.
- If you can’t decide between a brand new and a second hand boat, the calculator allows you to see the variation on possible repayments on both which could be the deciding factor for you.
- If you’re intending to order a custom-build, the calculator is invaluable when it comes to selecting the many options which are often on offer. Just add the cost of each option into the loan amount in the calculator and you’ll see how much extra your repayments may be.
