If you follow major World Regattas, you will recognize the "Horacio Carabelli" name and their nautical tradition.

Bio:Born in Montevideo, with a Brazilian passport, Horacio is a mechanical engineer and naval architect.He has been involved in international sailing from Dinghies, Olympic Classes and Offshore yachts.From 2004 until 2012 he participated in three Volvo Ocean Race, and he won as part of the sailing crew of Ericsson 4 (2008/2009).He has also participated in four Americas Cup as design team manager.A second time with Pirelli and Prada sponsored Luna Rossa.

Horacio Carabelli Senior is the Master Sailboat Builder from southern Brazil who designed and built HORIZONTE. This beautiful schooner has a story to tell about a 5-Year circumnavigation-and-a-half under the keel. Departing the factory in Florianpolis, Brazil, she made her way to Florida eventually, by coming north to the Panama Canal, and westward around the World. That was almost 20 years ago, and she's been north and south along this hemisphere many times.

HORIZON is an 86-foot (including 17ft bowsprit) schooner style motorsailer, i.e. two masts with the mizzen mast taller than the main mast.

She boasts 6 cabins, of which two are ensuite, a dining room, a living room, galley, walk-in engine room, and a pilothouse.

Back then she was equipped with the latest navigation technology, among which a 36 nm radar, Weather Fax, Satellite Phone, and Ham Radio.

Now she is refitted with NEW B&G Zeus electronics!

She has a 110-volt electrical circuit powered by an in-line generator off the main engine shaft, providing power to all the comforts of a home.

The initial goal of the trip was to circumnavigate the world with pleasure and comfort. Twenty years ago, before it became trendy to post everything on Facebook and YouTube, the owners felt it was unfair to keep their adventure to themselves, and started a dissemination project through lectures and seminars in schools. They also shared through various media such as movies, photos, CD-ROM, photo exhibits, and mainly the internet.

They produced a monthly newsletter describing their adventures, cultural aspects, and historical and interesting facts found in their expeditions whether while sailing or traveling through the interior of the places they visited.

They documented facts, history, places, cultures, curiosities, ecology, politics, and social problems among other things.

The "Horizonte Project" officially began in Punta del Leste, Uruguay because the idea was to travel along the entire coast of Brazil, including the mouth of some rivers such as the "Rio So Francisco" and the Amazon River. From Brazil they headed straight to Trinidad & Tobago, the Venezuelan ABC (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao), Jamaica, USA, Bahamas, Dominican Republic, the West Indies islands between Dominican Republic and Trinidad & Tobago, Trinidad again, Los Roques, crossed the Panama Canal, Galapagos, Tuamotus Islands, Society Islands, French Polynesia, Niue, Palmerston, Tonga including the Vava'u Archipelago, New Zealand for hurricane season, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, Maldives, Chagos, Seychelles, Comoros, Madagascar, Mozambique, South Africa, Namibia, and Brazil.

This beautiful vessel has been meticulously maintained by the same owners for almost 30 years!

The masts are a one-piece single tree trunk and beautifully carved at the saloon level.

Always Professionally Captained and Complete Ship's Log dating back almost 30 years!

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.
