Don't expect a cat to solve sea sickness; it is different, but not a cure all. Try a cat of the size you are considering and compare. The motion is quicker and sometimes less comfortable, but less rolly.
The differences are supply and demand, and construction cost. The cat also hold their value; I have sold each of mine (2 prior) for more than I paid, and they were not fixer-uppers. Also, it is a mistake to compare a 32-foot cat to a 32-foot monohull. It is more far in terms of room, speed, and equipment to compare it to a 36- to 38-foot mono. Then, things are more even. Still, there are differences.
