There is a difference, in a mono-hull an inexperienced skipper can broach and even get knocked out but but if it is a decent boat he would not get capsized. A good monohull even fast is about as fool prof as it can be. It will be necessary a breaking wave of a considerable size to capsize the boat. On a multihull all is needed is a lot of wind and an inexperienced sailor. Even experienced ones sometimes got it wrong even if very rarely.

A fast multihull demands a more experienced sailor to be sailed safely than a fast monohull and also more care and attention from an experienced skipper.
