Well, just to be fair: It is nice that none of their 400 boats ever capsized. But to keep things in perspective, Catalina built in excess of 60,000 monohulls and to my knowledge not a single one of them lost their keel.
As you are saying, just one manufacturer indeed.
Edited: Now here's a challenge for someone good at googling: How many cruising catamarans have ever existed in the world, let's say since the 1970s? I am picking this number because I would not be surprised if this number were smaller than the number of monohulls that were built by a single mid-sized production boat builder. Like Catalina which was founded in 1969.
That’s all the boats Catalina built from 8’ and up. Does that mean we can use all the beach cats in determining how many catamarans have been built? And really does it matter?
