Welcome to Sailnet. I'd highly recommend you read this post
to get the most out of your time on Sailnet.
That said, the real question is how much stuff do you really need? If you want to carry everything in the world you had when living on-shore, like the HDTV, 300 disc changer stereo system, etc... then no, a Catamaran probably isn't the right boat for you. A Gulfstar is probably going to not notice all that weight—a Snowgoose most definitely will.
If you like the living space a catamaran can provide, and can resist the urge to fill it with crap... then you'd probably be happy on a Snowgoose.
Why do you have the list down to these two boats in specific? It would probably help if you said what your budget was, since you've already said what your goals are. That would help elicit a list of good boats for your purpose.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
