$200/ft is typical in my area, hard for me to say whether a catamaran should be high or low compared to a mono.
Proper and exaustive prep is 90% of the work. If you literally mean that the topsides and spars were soda blasted, I would would think your prep work much higher than usual, as the blasting would leave a rough, pitted surface and require some level of extra fairing...Sprayed paint will show every and any imperfection in the underlying surface.
My boat has a 15 year old Imron white finish that still looks quite good despite taking quite a beating. I recommend Awlcraft or Imron rather than Awlgrip.
Certified...in several regards...
