they do have more room but from what i have read they are harder to heat as the heat rises out of the hulls.

Multihulls are bigger, faster, and more comfortable.
They do not do well in rough weather though.
They heel less, also.
But they're usually more expensive, as there aren't many secondhand ones that are old enough to be cheap yet.
And they're not self righting.

multi's dont heel...

and they are more expensive because you are buying two boats stuck together.

Well, they do heel a little. And, it gets really exciting when they heel more than a little.
