As first time boat buyers, our experience working with The Multihull Company (TMC) and Phil Berman was immeasurable and completely over the top. As Type “A”, anal retentive, detail oriented people; we required/needed a lot of attention, hand holding, guidance, and care which included multiple emails and calls (some hourly, most daily) during this process for which we knew nothing about. After chartering a several catamarans and a few boat show visits, the only decision we had made, prior to contacting TMC, was that we wanted a Catana 471 –we had no clue how to handle everything else. As most Catana boats are out cruising, finding one within US waters was pretty much impossible. We were very interested one in particular, an owner’s version, Catana 471, located in Turkey. At the time, there was only one lender that was willing to lend money under those parameters. Phil used his vast array of experience, contacts and knowledge to help us secure our loan, insurance broker, documentations company, maritime attorney, surveyor, flagging, transportation (Turkey to BVI to US) and so much more. Meeting Phil in Turkey during our survey proved to solidify our working relationship and start the beginnings of a new friendship. Phil and his team have endless patience, and an amazing commitment to providing the best customer service! We could always rely on Phil to be candid, honest, reliable and professional (regardless how silly the questions were). It was because of Phil and TMC’s diligence and commitment to seeing us in this boat that our dream has been realized. We would not buy or sell a boat without working with TMC and Phil Berman – as they took a challenging experience and made it pleasurable adventure.

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.
