Completed in 2006, 'Tantrum' is a 42ft French designed and built racing Trimaran that is most at home sailing in shorthanded races like the Route de Rhum. She is fast, strong and has a great track record to date. Now it's time for the current owner to pass her on so the list of achievements can continue.

Vessel Description

With surprisingly spacious accommodations in the main hull, “Tantrum” also boasts over 180cm in headroom and is nearly 3m wide inside the main cabin.The yacht is also able to be folded in a similar way to a Corsair or Grainger.

Why a trimaran? They say they sail/handle better than a catamaran as they feel like a monohull. They are much faster than a monohull maintaining speeds above 10 knots on all points of sail in just as little as 10 knots and without the 40-degree heel. It is definitely a bonus when you are fast, safe and comfortable sailing across an ocean.

With a beam of 10M, the nets give the crew living space to have fun and bring all the toys. They also give a strong and safe platform to make a strong seaworthy boat that has been tested in the harsh seas of Brittany.

In 2019 she was professionally converted into a fast offshore cruiser, ready to race or leisurely sail around the world. Between 2022 – 2023 she underwent extensive upgrades and refurbishment, to create the fast and strong vessel on offer today.

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

— Jimmy

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.
