"Conceived and created for a specified owner, a proper yachts concept, design and construction are never compromised. Finally, a proper vessel is beautiful. It stirs your soul as much as it respects your intellect."~ Manfred Kanter

This steel custom Bruce Roberts design has two cabins and one head. Kejfam has had only had two owners. Commissioned in 1987 in Canada, she began her life in freshwater on the Great Lakes before sailing down to the Caribbean. Her current owners purchased her in 2017 in Trinidad.

  • Steel insulated internally throughout with spray foam up to 2.
  • Foam in main bilge spaces removed 2017/2018.
  • Lots of storage. Vessel is fast for it’s size/mass.
  • Seen passages averaging 6.5 knots in moderate winds
  • Vessel had a minor fire on board (previous owner, 2016) due to charging failure of lithium battery device
  • Cosmetic (plastics, fabrics, wood) damage repaired/replaced as necessary
  • Head sail and main sail went missing over years of Covid. Currently fitted with small main and jib – these need to be replaced/renewed.
  • Rudder post (stuffing box) has stiffened up over covid – expect overhaul is required prior to sailing.
  • Gear shift cable is usable, but needs to be replaced
  • Steel replacement (sections of keel plate, sections of bilge, sections of deck, sections of cockpit, etc.) work by Chaguaramas Metal Works (Chaguaramas, Trinidad)

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.

— JT

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.
