I’ve often contemplated similar features, but just can’t live with the fuel consumption on the mono-hulls. That extra turn of “speed” eluded us. It remains the biggest sacrifice we made among the features of the boat we selected, but the only examples we could find with that sacred combination of speed and economy were hi-buck catamarans, and because they make great live-aboards too, we are still giving a few of those designs serious consideration. Yes, they are beamy, but more than a few are at 16 ft, ...still pretty good for most slips.
