Layout & Accommodations

Morning Stars hardtop covered cockpit features the starboard side helm with excellent visibility from the double helm seat, cockpit seating at the table for 8, and a walkthrough to the swim deck aft. Two steps down through the large sliding glass door from the cockpit yields the saloon to starboard and the galley to port.

The clear Beech woodwork throughout gives the interior a traditional and comfortable feel. The large C-shaped settee with varnished wood table easily seats six for meals or for relaxing. Opposite the settee is the big navigation station. The galley features a top loading freezer and front loading fridge, 2 burner stove, toaster oven and Microwave. Deep double stainless sink, solid surface counter tops and lots of storage.

Four steps down to Port, the entire hull is dedicated to the owner’s suite, which has a queen size berth aft and a large head forward separated by a companionway that features an incredible amount of storage in latticework door faced lockers on both sides.

The Starboard hull houses a queen cabin Forward, a double cabin forward, with a head and shower on the outboard side of the companionway. The aft cabins have hanging lockers, dressing seats forward of the berths, and all berths feature large drawers for storage underneath.

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

I bought a yacht that I had never seen. I did this because I trusted my broker Andrew Holland. It was not an easy job for Andrew, as I am an experienced boat builder and owner of previous yachts, but work in West Africa. Imagine how hard it was to communicate what I was looking for. Andrew came up with exactly what I wanted. He dealt with time delays, all my questions at odd hours, and was there for the survey. He reported honestly and professionally. After buying the yacht, I arrived at the boat on a Sunday night, after dark, after travelling from West Africa to the Caribbean, and found it was better than expected. He never pulled punches and made me aware of shortfalls. I expected to spend my one month leave working on the boat, but actually spent less than one week, and was able to spend 3 weeks sailing – wonderful bonus.

Thank you Andrew for putting up with all my questions, all my worries and all my crazy out of the time zone concerns – you were totally professional, but also I know that if and when we meet up, it will be like a friend finally meeting. You are always welcome on Aseka.

Outstanding company with professional subject matter experts. If I were to buy or sell cruising sailboat, particularly a catamaran, Andrew would be my go to broker.

I have been sailing since I was a child and attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy. But when my wife and I began the process of purchasing an ocean cruising/racing catamaran, I realized that this is a world unto itself. Obviously, we needed to find someone knowledgeable to help us make an informed decision. More importantly, we needed someone honest and willing to put our interests before his or her own. I was lucky to work with Phil Berman at The Multihull Company. He repeatedly shunned the fast buck, choosing instead to work the long road to connect us with the “perfect boat”. I would be glad to recommend Phil and his company to anyone planning to purchase or sell a performance sailing machine.

— Eric Boutiette

Andrew Hodgdon was our broker when we bought our 2018 Lagoon 450F in Antigua in April 2922. He provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Multihull Company.
