Cat bridgedeck hieght

I am in the market for a catamaran of 38 to 50 feet. I have recently started my research and come across a disturbing discovering that may limit my cat manufacturers.

I have heard that South African cats have a low bridgedeck height and tend to weigh more than French cats. This tends to make the South African cats slam into the waves. I''ve talked with a person who was in 6 foot seas and said the pounding was unbearable on the SA cat.

Would you consider this to be valid or
am I getting caught in a he-said-she-said battle between cat sailors?

Thanks to all who can point me in the right direction.
