Catamarans represent a real evolution in the boating world, so much so that they are considered the boats of the present and the future.

In recent years, the catamaran market has evolved considerably, with a wide variety of models meeting the needs of different types of boaters. Here are five catamaran models under 12 meters that best represent this trend.
