More and more of the cruising world is leaning towards multihulls, so there must be something in it that's attracting them. One organisation which is taking advantage of the catamaran's growing popularity is Multihull Solutions, and they are planning a pretty comprehensive presence at the next 2014 Sanctuary Cove Boat Show on Australia's Gold Coast in May.

In particular, they will be showcasing three outstanding multihull models.

Visitors to Multihull Solutions stand from 22-25 May will experience the Australian launch of the remarkable Catana 59, and will also be able to inspect the popular Hélia 44 sailing catamaran by Fountaine Pajot, and the new Summerland 40 Long Range power catamaran by Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts.



Response in the brand new Catana 59 is expected to be strong, and the fully optioned catamaran will be offered for sale at the show with immediate delivery. Representing the cutting edge of industry design and performance, the Catana 59 features a sleek and innovative design, incredible sense of space, and the fast, blue-water performance for which the Catana shipyard is renowned.

For those interested in smaller cruising catamarans, the Fountaine Pajot Hélia 44 will exceed expectations with its outstanding offshore performance and eminently stylish and comfortable design. The catamaran is one of Fountaine Pajot’s most popular models in history and continues to eclipse sales records throughout the world.

Power catamaran enthusiasts will be excited to inspect the incredible new Summerland 40 Long Range which features a host of design upgrades, including a more spacious saloon boasting panoramic windows and a contemporary interior design, a comprehensively equipped galley, designer dining area, helm station with expansive views, and thoughtfully separated passageways affording optimal privacy in the cabins.

Multihull Solutions will also have details of their comprehensive pre-owned brokerages listings, as well as representatives from all of their other brands including Sunreef Yachts, TAG Yachts, Privilége Yachts and NEEL Trimarans at the show to provide information on their entire range.

Further information and private inspections at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show can be arranged by contacting Multihull Solutions on 1300 855 338 (within Australia) or 0508 MULTIS (within New Zealand), +66 8 1894 1530 (within Asia), emailing info@multihullsolutions.com.au or visiting the website at www.multihullsolutions.com.au.
