Three 24ft Strider Club catamarans were sailed singlehanded from Plymouth UK to Tallinn USSR in 1989. This is a video, taken from on board one of the boats, of that 3000 mile voyage. You can build a catamaran like this from plans by Woods Designs

We have a complete range of multihull designs, power and sail from 14ft - 45ft. See www.sailingcatamarans.com

Please note, this was the first film I made and was much more work than I had expected. These days one sees many travel documentaries and it is easy to forget that there are usually at least three unseen people involved, the cameraman, the sound man and the director. We had none of those. Nor did we have an accompanying helicopter , drone or even motorboat! I had to sail while I filmed, and it is much easier to video while motoring than while bashing to windward in big seas! (especially with a broken autopilot)
