Multihull Solutions has recorded a remarkable year despite a punishing market with new and pre-owned boat sales continuing to soar.

The specialist multihull company has defied industry trends to sell almost AUD$14 million in new boats and AUD$9 million in brokerage boats in the calendar year to date.

With a total of 32 boats sold so far in 2011, Multihull Solutions has justified its positions as Australia’s leading multihull specialist and is already managing a flood of enquiries for sales in 2012.

Multihull Solutions managing director Mark Elkington attributes the company’s ongoing success to a number of key factors.

'We are extremely selective in the brands we represent,' Mark said. 'Unlike other multihull sales companies, we don’t just represent one or two boatyards and can therefore offer unbiased advice and support. We are the exclusive importer and distributors of Fountaine Pajot, Trawler, Catana, Sunreef Yachts, Journey and NEEL Trimarans, so our clients can browse an extensive range of brands and models to find the one that truly suits their budget, style and needs.'

Multihull Solutions not only specialises in new boat sales, but also has an expansive Brokerage Division that offers a broad range of pre-owned boats from all international and regional boat yards. With a rigorous selection process, the company insists on only representing quality boats.

'We want to make sure we match clients to the right boat for them, rather than sell them just any boat,' said Mark.

In addition, the company has an established Charter Investment division with solid relationships with the most reputable charter companies, Boat Maintenance and Management programs, and also offers training and tuition from accredited skippers.

An extraordinary number of testimonials from clients and the solid rate of repeat and referral business also confirm that the Multihull Solutions team is an integral part of the company’s sales success.

With more than 100 years of combined experience in the marine industry, the team provides clients with valuable market advice, security and outstanding service. Their sales staff includes specialists across numerous multihull brands and the team also has several multilingual personnel to ensure efficient communication with international boatyards.

Multihull Solutions’ professionalism and outstanding performance has earned them the coveted Fountaine Pajot International Distributor of the Year Award for both 2010 and 2011. The title acknowledges Multihull Solutions’ outstanding sales record that continues to eclipse other distributors from larger market regions including Europe and the United States.

'Also, as we are privately owned with the owners all actively working within the company, all of our efforts are dedicated to clients rather than satisfying board members and shareholders,' said Mark.

The company has recently launched its innovative 'Year-Round Boat Show' from its convenient headquarters adjacent to the Mooloolaba Yacht Club. Buyers are now able to visit the Multihull Solutions office, inspect an impressive range of new and brokerage boats in the marina, undertake test sails on the stunning waterways of the Sunshine Coast, then enjoy all the leisure and tourist activities the beautiful region has to offer.

Multihull Solutions office in Mooloolaba is only one hour’s drive north of Brisbane, and flights also service the nearby Sunshine Coast airport from many major Australian cities.

In 2011, the company also established New Zealand office based in the popular Westhaven Marina precinct and has already recorded strong sales and enquiries across both its new and pre-owned multihull range.

Parlier reigns supreme in Hydrofoil Worlds
The south westerly breeze kicks over the land mass over north facing beach, making for flat water despite strong wind. Whatever the shortcomings of the Fremantle Doctor on the first day of competition, were made up for in spades on day two, when the wind kicked in early at 15 knots and quickly built to 18 with gusts as high as 26. The Rockingham course is perfectly suited to such conditions. The south westerly breeze kicks over the land mass over the north facing beach, making for flat water despite strong wind.
