After looking for a catamaran for three years and driving countless miles looking at boats, Diane, my wife, suggested we talk to a buyer’s broker. That was the most important decision we made in years!

After seeing the advertisements for The Multihull Company, I decided to call them. Phil Berman, the owner and founder, answered the phone. We discussed what we were looking for and the price range that our budget would support. He asked many questions and said he wanted to get to know his customers before he decided if we could work together.

Immediately I got a feeling that we had not gotten from any of the other brokers we had talked to. Phil actually wanted to hear from us, what we wanted and did not try to tell us what we wanted, a refreshing change. Nor did he push his own company listings on us, like most brokers. And he talks honestly and authoritatively about pricing like no other broker. He knows what any catamaran is worth – wholesale, retail, etc. That is one of the big benefits of working with a broker who sells about 30 catamarans a year.

But the wife was not convinced….she wanted to meet him in person. So we scheduled a trip to Annapolis, and Phil and Dennis Bixler (one member of a GREAT staff) met us there, postponing leaving on a sailing trip to meet us. Keep in mind that we were not looking for a million dollar yacht, but a 38 foot catamaran. We spent the day looking at boats and getting to know each other. Diane immediately liked Phil and Dennis and felt she could trust them. Which is not something that comes easily to her!

Phil dealt with a ton of questions from us and never failed to return a call, even on Saturday or Sunday. He showed us listings The Multihull Company had, as well as the listings other companies had. In fact, the boat we ended up buying was another broker’s listing. He clearly only wanted us to get the boat that was best for us – not him.

In closing, the one thing I must say is this: you want some one like Phil and his staff on YOUR side. Phil is a hard-nosed negotiator and gets things done right! From finding us a boat, to helping us sea trial, all the way to the closing, the entire staff at The Multihull Company was a joy to work with. They treat you like family.

Thanks Phil,
Dennis, and Marylyn – you have allowed a dream to come true! Yall are GREAT

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.

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.
