TMC Opens San Francisco Office

Story by TMC Editor / January 8, 2019

The Multihull Company is pleased to announce the opening of its new offices in San Francisco with its new agents Wayne Goldman and Sean Conner.

Multihulls California, situated in the heart of downtown San Francisco, is right on the water at Pier 40 on the Embarcadero.

The office is managed by associate broker Wayne Goldman, who has been around water his whole life and has sailed most of the waters of the world. He started out on his dad’s “huge” 21’ Chris Craft woodie cabin cruiser when he was still in diapers. He cried when his mom made his dad sell the boat to spend more time with the family. Once he had boating on his mind, he spent every chance he could on the lakes and rivers of upstate New York. Once he found the ocean when he went to college in New Hampshire, there was no turning back, buying and sailing boats wherever he went. He eventually ended up in California in a corporate job, but that did not stop him from buying his first cruising sailboat, a brand new Tayana 42’. During the next thrty years, Wayne would work a real job for a few years, then escape and go cruising for a few years.

Wayne has spent the last 20+ years in the marine industry, selling boating equipment to boat builders all over the world and doing international and local boat shows on the east and west coast. He has extensive experience with catamarans and has visited most of the catamaran factories around the world. For the past 5+ years, Wayne has focused his passion on helping other, like-minded boaters find the boat of their dream. With his vast knowledge of boats, and understanding what boaters are looking for, Wayne has been successfully finding the right boats for hundreds of boaters.

Sean Conner was born into a boating family, spending his childhood on and around the San Francisco Bay and Delta. This introduction to boating at such an early age stuck hard with Sean, who was never content unless he was on a boat.
After finishing school, Sean immediately went to work in South Florida for the Miss Geico Offshore powerboat racing team. Traveling extensively throughout the U.S. to nearly every boat race and major boat show, Sean was responsible for the preparation and maintenance of the teams several performance boats.

Having traveled home to spend some time in a family business, Sean’s need for adventure and salt water sent him to Mexico to crew on private yachts. From this point on, Sean found himself crewing on private yachts from Canada to Southern Mexico, including the Sea of Cortez and the Caribbean as far south as Grenada. After meeting many great people along the way that were looking to purchase or sell yachts Sean decided to obtain his Yacht Salesman license in California and begin working for The Multihull Company in California.

Being able to put real life, on-the-water experience into assisting his clients find the proper boat and equipment to fulfill their dreams has been invaluable. Sean’s hands-on knowledge of both power boats and sail boats have made him a very versatile resource for all of his clients needs.

Wayne and Sean now join The Multihull Company to open TMC San Francisco and assist clients with all of their buying and selling needs in the California and abroad. With offices situated in the downtown San Francisco and within close proximity to all of the major marina and facilities, they are ideally located to assist in the purchase or sale of your next catamaran.

If you are shopping for a boat in the California, or looking for assistance with the sale of your boat, Wayne and Sean are ready to assist!

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.
