    Everything is different - you could hardly get two more different types of hull form!
    Do some googling, and find some info - for instance, have a look at the Westernman pilot cutters built by Covey Island Boat Works, and the trimarans designed by Nigel Irens. Or even the trimarans designed by Richard Woods that utilize existing beach cat hulls as outriggers / amas, and have a centre hull designed to suit them.

    Which hull and when?
    It's a rather dynamic evolution.
