Cruising Catamaran Communiqué is the latest book from the pen of Charles E. Kanter AMS®. It begins where his record-setting Cruising in Catamarans leaves off. Adding new introspection to older vessels and adding an entire new horizon to the newer vessels, Kanter reflects upon the global reach of the industry and his survey experiences with the burgeoning green (hybrid power) revolution.

The last decade ushered in a paradigm shift in yacht design, consumer demand, and government regulation. Kanter addresses much of that as he describes his experiences with various new offerings on the market. His surveyor’s mallet and critical eye provide you a most readable, articulate text, punctuated with a myriad of diagrams and photographs.

The book theme of “virtues and vices” clearly states all sides to controversy both real and contrived. Handling large catamarans is well covered as is his penchant for appropriate anchoring technique for modern light-displacement vessels and catamarans based upon his personal professional research as well as research from other sources. There is a huge bibliography and a glossary worthy of a book in its own right. Know before you go may be a common cliché, but Kanter explains how you can evaluate a boat, no matter how many hulls it has, for your own purposes.

Kanter, or “Chuck” as his friends address him, began his sailing life back in the 1960’s on Chesapeake Bay. By 1970 his avocation and enthusiasm for sailing, and a career move to Long Island, New York, introduced him to multihull guru Bill Symons. He quickly became a part-time make-ready and delivery specialist for Symons. By 1980, Chuck left his executive “day job” as a Training Director to work full-time at his passion: sailing! He became a delivery skipper, charter operator, sailing instructor, race chairman and yacht surveyor. Chuck did professional equipment testing and numerous boat and book reviews. The 1990’s saw him as a full professional with portfolio. He is a SAMS Accredited Marine Surveyor, member of The Society of Marine Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) member of BOAT/US Exchange for Marine Professionals, has a USCG 100 ton license with Sail endorsement.

Cruising Catamaran Communiqué will be formally introduced to the Sailing public at the Strictly Sail International Boat Show at Oakland, CA on 18 April 2007
