In absolute terms, no. On the other hand, there aren't any 40-60' cruising monohulls that sail like a Laser, only a bit more civilized.
In relative terms, there is a whole spectrum of sailing "feeling" in cruising catamarans, just like there is in monohulls. But for both types of boats, if pure sailing joy is what you are after, you will be disappointed unless you take a nice little performance sailing dinghy along with you.
Most people associate healing and riding in sync with waves while the boat moves in a certain way as their understanding of sailing "feeling". This is more a Pavlovian response, because this is how almost everyone starts in boats, and continues for a ways before moving to a catamaran. And then the move is usually to a large catamaran - where they think they are driving a dock.
Moving from a Laser, to a J35, to a Formosa 50 will give one the same experience.
However, catamarans do have their "grooves", and a lot of the joy is to be speeding along at 9-10kts with a "dock" under you, while you play guitar, cook a good meal, take a nice nap in the hammock, or pay attention to your spread of 4-6 fishing lines.
This is also a learned response over time, and going back on a mono heeled and rolling feels more like surviving than sailing.
And what one wants for an afternoon sail is completely different than what one wants for a 2-3 week passage (or even a 1-2 day passage). Sporting sailing is fun for one and can be tedious for the other.
So it depends on what you think sailing needs to "feel" like, and to what degree you will allow that to degrade before not enjoying it. Also, how you will be sailing. Again, a 50' Oyster is not going to "feel" like a Melges 24 - so there is always going to be a degradation tradeoff.
BTW, it is a very reasonable question and didn't need a disclaimer.
Hard to keep up w/this thread, unless it's your full time job
Mark, I'm with you on some of this. A good friend once said to me that sailing a big monohull is like driving a truck, while sailing a 420 is like taking a sports car out on a track. And by the way, even at my advanced age, I still love taking out a 420 when I can and feeling that thing plane.
I've owned 5 cruising monohulls over 40 years of doing this from 22 to 52 feet. And I still found the 52 ft monohull to give me more of, OK, I'll use your words "pavlovian feel" that I'm looking for in a sailing experience than the 2 cruising multi-hull's I chartered.
Like most things in life, it isn't black and white. Bigger boats on average are more like truck driving than sports car driving. But for me, again for me, not for you and I get that, the feel at the wheel of sitting on the lee side of even a bigger monohull, beating, watching the tell tails on a big blade all fly perfectly, healing, feeling that perfect balance in the helm, for me in those moments, all is right with the world. It's just too important to me to consider going over to the other side.
I don't think you are saying this, but I think we need to be clear. The feeling of sailing a cruising cat is different than a mono hull. It's not just a size thing. If you like it, great, you are sailing in the real world, and making it happen for you.
But it ain't the solution for everyone.
