The Multihull Company’s Fort Lauderdale office is managed by Senior Broker Alexis De Boucaud who developed a love for the sea at an early age racing dinghies in the waters of Brittany, France. Alexis immigrated to the United States as a young man and shortly after developed a fluency in both French and English. He then went on to study business at Amherst College, but knew even then that his true passion was in offshore cruising.
Alexis began his professional yacht career as a captain sailing the storied seas of French Polynesia on a Fountaine Pajot Marquises 57 catamaran. While there, he developed a talent for sharing and communicating his love for blue-water sailing to his worldly guests. Alexis took this skill and then began working as the base manager for Nautor’s Swan Charters, a high-end charter company with over fifty Swans based in the Caribbean, New England and the Mediterranean. While at Nautor’s Swan, Alexis coordinated the sale of new yachts through the French defiscalisation program. He later instituted a successful yacht sales and management program to develop the fleet in non-French territories. This experience gave him substantial experience in the many facets of yacht sales and brokerage in the United States, Europe and the Caribbean. Alexis joined The Multihull Company almost ten years ago, working alongside founder Phil Berman to serve clients around the world.
The Multihull Company’s offices are located within a few minutes drive of the Lauderdale Marine Center which is Florida’s largest marine facility, a premier, all-inclusive, 38-acre complex designed to meet the needs of the world’s discerning yachtsmen, captains and crew. Here you will find an immense boatyard that can accommodate vessels of all sizes, over 1,000 feet of riverfront dockage, 110 floating slips, as well as all of the necessary resources to repair, refit, or refurbish your yacht. Lauderdale Marine Center gives you the unique ability to handle your own projects or tap into the wide array of resources conveniently located at the boatyard. On-site, you’ll find independent, skilled craftsmen, covering every marine service imaginable, from custom paint and graphics to fine cabinetry, interior design, refinishing services, electrical engineering, welding, refrigeration, and much much more.
