An Opportunity to own a performance orientated Catamaran designed by World Renowned Naval Architect Alexander Simonis does not come around often and especially at this price point.

Dreams Float is a 2006 5 Cabin Maxim 57 Catamaran built in Cape Town, South Africa. She has just finished a South Atlantic crossing and has arrived in Grenada for the winter cruising season. She recorded some high speeds on her transit and has proven herself as a capable Blue Water cruiser with several South Atlantic and Indian Ocean passages. The cost to build a boat new to this spec would be astronomical.

The MAXIM 57 is a very purposeful seagoing vessel and with a vast amount of usable space on board both inside and out for a boat this size.

The control line arrangement on the Maxim 57 makes it easy to sail shorthanded due to the control lines leading back to the cockpit. Extra halyards were installed for reassurance and safety and the boat features ample flat deck space for ease of maneuverability while underway.

Dreams Float would make an ideal expedition vessel for large families wanting to explore off the grid or perhaps an affordable expedition catamaran for remote charters in uncharted waters. Built to sail around the world with the length over the waterline and bridge deck clearance that most cruisers can dream of.

The previous owner has completely re-fitted her at a cost of over $150,000 with new sails, new standing rigging, new running rigging, fresh bottom job, new chargers, brand new water maker and a Brand-new Solar Arch with solar creating additional shade and protection in the cockpit.

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.
