    What kind of catamaran are you interested in? As you say, there are many types. So are you looking for a home, or a sport cat, etc...?

    see if you can find local catamarans of the type and size you are interested locally and ask the owners about them. If possible see if you can go for a ride in each and see for your self which you like better.

    There is no substitute for first hand knowledge.

    Than perhaps you can narrow down your questions for this list.

    Sail or power, racing or cruising? Fast and spartan or comfy and slow? You need to pass this info on to get useful feedback. See http://bigcatcatamarans.com for more info about cruising sailing catamarans.
