By Barry Tranter This cruising cat is great for beginners, experts and any sailors who enjoy one-level living in style. Catamarans are bringing new people to the world of yachting. They make sense both to first-yacht buyers and to powerboat people who may be considering crossing to the dark side of boating, also known as sailing. They all like the idea of catamarans because both new boaters and powerboat people have difficulty accepting the need for a sailing boat to lean over and make everyone uncomfortable. All of which is a roundabout way of introducing the Orana 44, whose French builders, Fountaine-Pajot, have produced a clever design with a good balance of indoor and outdoor volumes and spaces—more on that later.
