“Catamarans: Tomorrow’s Superyachts” ($65, Sheridan House, Inc., 2009) discusses the future of multihull luxury yachts, what’s required to build one and important considerations on choosing and sailing a cat, from aesthetics to seaworthiness. The hardcover exterior with dust jacket is as sleek as the 200 color photos by Billy Black — the perfect gift for any multihull aficionado in your life.

Tarjan is a member of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers and founder and president of Aeroyacht, a brokerage firm specializing in cruising multihulls and catamarans. He actively sails his 31-foot custom trimaran off the coast of Long Island, N.Y., where he lives with his wife and two sons. For information, visit
