Multihull Solutions has smashed its sales records with an outstanding Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, confirming that the popularity of multihulls is stronger than ever.

At the close of the show on Sunday, Multihull Solutions had recorded AUD$5.7m in new boat sales, including four Fountaine Pajot Hélia 44 sailing catamarans, a Saba 50 sailing catamaran and another share in the Hélia 44 Whitsunday syndicate.

The company also has an additional seven further orders in progress that are subject to upcoming sea trials and factory inspections on catamarans including three Hélia 44s, a Lipari 41, Sanya 57, Summerland 40 and Cumberland 47.

The Multihull Solutions Brokerage division was also successful at the show, with provisional orders taken on a Mahé 36 Evolution and Lavezzi 40 sailing catamaran.

Multihull Solutions managing director Mark Elkington said the boat show was undoubtedly their most successful in history.

'We were absolutely inundated with genuine buyers who came to the event looking to secure a great deal,' Mark said.

'The sheer quantity and quality of visitors at our stand is evidence of the show’s appeal, as well as the ever-growing popularity of multihulls,' he said.

Multihull Solutions’ sales record adds to an already successful year with their expansion into Asia yielding immediate response from regional multihull enthusiasts, and a new management board recently established to oversee the future development of the company.

Multihull Solutions now has offices in Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and Hong Kong and represents many of the world’s leading power and sail multihull brands including Fountaine Pajot, Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts, Sunreef Yachts, Catana Catamarans, TAG Yachts, NEEL Trimarans and Privilège Catamarans. In addition to selling new multihulls, the company has the largest pre-owned multihull brokerage division in the Asia Pacific region.
