Alexis and the team were fantastic. We moved the listing to TMC after being with another broker for over 6 months. We had a highly qualified buyer extend an offer on our beautiful catamaran less than 48 after moving her over! In my opinion, most brokers just don’t understand there’s more to it than just having a bunch of listings. The REAL value of an experienced team like TMC is you focus as much on finding and qualifying buyers as you do acquiring listings. Alexis is a true professional and we recommend him to everyone.
Carl Olivier from The Multihull Company has just recently sold our beloved catamaran Tranquilo and I would like to express our sincere appreciation for Carl’s huge efforts in getting this done in a relatively short space of time. Being from South Africa, we were unfamiliar with the boat selling process in the Caribbean and USA and started asking our fellow cruisers if anyone had any recommendations. The name Carl Olivier came up quite a few times but we decided to send out emails to the various yacht brokers. The response was excellent, however, Carl stood out from the rest by answering any questions/concerns we had, promptly and efficiently. He even assisted with information that didn’t have anything to do with the sale. It was then that we decided to give him a central listing.
Listing with Carl turned out to be the best decision we could have made as he had potential buyers almost immediately. Although not in his job description, upon arriving in the BVI, he even helped us prepare Tranquilo for our first viewing. He kept us updated on a daily basis and guided us through some very stressful surveys and viewings. He helped us find the best places to have a few issues resolved during the survey process and kept his cool when we were losing ours.
It only took a few months before he sold Tranquilo. By then we were in Ft. Lauderdale and even when the sale was done and dusted, he remained in contact with us, updating us on any post sale information.
We would have no hesitation in recommending him as a broker and wish to thank him once again for all his hard work and all the success for the future.
We can only begin to express our gratitude to you and your team at The Multihull Company. I can’t imagine how anyone could navigate the process of finding, vetting, purchasing, closing and delivering of a vessel without the dedication, care and thoroughness of your organization.
You took the time to make certain that we understood the process, educating us at each step and making us feel comfortable along the way. Then you led the process, involving us when we were required and anticipating our needs.
We couldn’t have been more wrong than to think that after the closing we’d be on our own, left to figure out the complicated process of hiring a delivery crew and clearing out of customs in a foreign country; yet you and your team were by our side continuing to guide us as if the closing was just a step in the voyage.
As first-time buyers there was no way that we’d be able to do this without The Multihull Company.
The experience of working with The Multihull Company was so seamless and thorough that I’ve used your company’s practices with my employees as examples of how to provide unsurpassed client service.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

With having to coordinate the sale of our house in California, the move to the East Coast, simultaneously buying a catamaran and building a new house it now seems ironic that the easiest part of completing the dream was the purchase of the boat. This is especially so inasmuch as we bought it off-shore and had to go through the additional problems that inevitably come with transactions of that type. Having you as our broker, warning us of what to expect and guiding us through the steps of the purchase made the process a piece of cake. What you earned was well deserved and was “money well spent” as far as my wife and I are concerned – especially when you consider the quality and price of the vessel you found us. At this point my only regret is that I cannot retain you to deal with the real estate agents and builders I now face with the construction of our new home in Florida!

What a great vacation Kelly Kneeland planned for us! Your selections of the itinerary, crew, and food were perfect. We had such a fabulous time sailing, diving, and snorkeling — especially at the remote spots that are off the beaten path.
You are the queen of catamaran charters! (Or: You are the “Cat” Woman!)
If you’ve had much exposure to the trade, you’ll appreciate how different Phillip is and how different he operates. He’s pleasant, candid, caring, reliable, credible, flexible, and extremely knowledgeable. He aims to please. He would be my first choice when it comes time to buy another boat or sell the one I just bought. And his assistant, Marilynn, was so helpful! Even now, three months after the sale, I would not hesitate to call either for help.

Coming from Australia to buy a boat in the US adds another dimension to an already big decision. However, everything ran smoothly with The Multihull Company and we are very pleased with the result. We felt supported and well advised throughout the whole process. Every stage of the purchase (inspection, test sail, survey, rig check etc) was well organised and ran like clockwork. A very important issue for us was having the post-purchase issues in place regarding insurance, transfer, berthing and ongoing care etc. Again, these matters were all handled for us very well by The Multihull Company and we returned to Australia feeling confident of the arrangements. We found Phillip and his team to be straight talking and honest and we would certainly recommend them.

Yes! We are so thrilled.
Phil: Thank you so much for all of your help and guidance through the process. You did so much more than you needed to as our broker and this whole thing would not have happened without you. We shall raise our first glass of champagne on the boat to you.
