The difference is...

The difference is with a multi-season ablative you could apply 3 coats run it for a season then haul for 6 months and put her back in the water without painting and the paint would still work and be effective.

A single season paint will not work after a haul out and re-launch hence the single season part.

If you never haul, a single season should work for more than a year with enough coats, but, if you haul winters or to do out of the water repairs for more than a day or two a multi-season is necessary..
