About

This is an amazing build, with an incredible eye for detail in its structure and layout. This is not a cookie cutter catamaran and has to be seen and sailed to be fully appreciated. Epoxy carbon construction with honeycomb core, a rotating mast, an incredible bowsprit structure that locks in the front beam with the rest of the boat, making for one extremely stiff and powerful platform. The roller furling boom makes this a very simple boat to reef and sail short-handed and keeps your sail in great condition for many years of enjoyment.

 

This catamaran is using racing yacht technology all over. A great example of this is the use of Halyard Constrictors as soon as you let this constructer go it immediately binds to the rope and completely locks it under load as well as being backed up with traditional jammers. Brilliant inventions, like the dinghy lifting system under the forward trampoline that hoists up from under the bow between the two hulls, locking off on a 4-point safety lock. Not to mention the davits on the back which allow you to lift a dinghy or your water toys such as kayaks. Doubling as submersible platform for recovering divers or swimming off; simple and robust.

 

Power management of 14 lithium batteries replaced in 2023, boasting 8064 Ah all monitored by a Victron Skyla system, each cell being individually monitored. The new Fischer Panda10kw generator to provide power on the rare occasions the 16 solar panels cant keep up. The 210kw inverters make sure the crew never has to second guess power consumption.

 

Then there is the boats traditional layout. It has 2 helm stations slightly more inboard than your standard twin helm set up. You have a generous table for dining on the back deck and as you come through the doors you have the nav station starboard side forward and galley to the port side. The starboard hull is for guests and crew with the middle of the hulls. Second heads and shower can be shared with crew in the forward cabin or guests in the aft cabin. Further forward again is a kids bunk room, with wide steps built into the hull. The interior is bright, minimalist, and sleek.

 

There are too many unique features, equipment, and systems to completely summarise this boat in one page. The build quality of this boat, the inventions, the simple use of modern technology, the fresh new modern layout and the sheer speed of this boat will have you shaking with delight.

This is a special boat that is not to be missed, get in touch with us to arrange a viewing.

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.
