Ex-factory pickup - A word from our Owners


Thanks very much Ant for your efforts and your professional manner. As we discussed you can’t pull buyers out of a hat unfortunately. I would not hesitate to both recommend and use your services again in the future should the opportunity present.

My very best

Hi Rachel;

I just wanted to thank you and the team for a very well presented and informative weekend. Shaye, Indigo and I learned a lot, got a few more resources and of course had more opportunity to look a little closer at potential boats that are going to suit our purposes.

In the interim, we thought you’d like to see the ‘Bluewater Horizons TV’ Episode 5 that was created at the show this weekend and perhaps share our Patreon page around your networks?

Hi Kelvin. We made it into Yorkeys Knob yesterday. What an amazing trip. Tayrona was on her best behavior all the way.

Just wanted to say a huge thanks to you for always checking on us while we were at The Boat Works and for loaning us the van for all that time.

The whole experience of buying a yacht for the first time was made so easy and you made us feel looked after every step of the way. You are a genuinely great guy and your professionalism shows in the way you interacted with us. Love Tayrona and so happy to be grotty yachties now.

Scott & Selina, "Tayrona" Lagoon 380 sailing catamaran
We highly recommend Ant Kovacevic,  Local and International Sales Consultant at Multihull Solutions, Mooloolaba! He has a comprehensive understanding of a wide range of vessels and draws on his Naval Architecture/Engineering background to solve any problems that may arise.

What a breath of fresh air to deal respectfully with someone who is so focused on customer service, that he is willing to go that extra nautical mile. We were so impressed when we bought our Seawind 1160 catamaran from him, and urge anyone who is even remotely thinking of buying a new or used “dreamboat” to contact him for a chat, wherever you are in Australia or overseas. Many thanks once again Ant.

Helen & Rob Mason, owners of Seawind 1160

You guys are the best, I didn’t buy a boat from you yet you reached out to help me when I had a problem with my FP.

Eternally thankful.

Merry Christmas

We were very happy with the outcome of the sale process although it did take a while.

In particular we would like to acknowledge the efforts of Steve Austin, I think that the sale would not have happened without his attitude and professionalism. His experience in sales certainly came to the fore in our process.

We would recommend Steve as a specialist big cat sales person regardless of what company he was working with.

All the best for the future,

Regards

For those that need to know, when buying a boat, particularly a sailing cat Multihull Solutions Coomera  must be the first, second and third place to call.

We started our journey on locating a boat, eight months later 777 became part of our lives. A beautiful Leopard 38.

Throughout our search and talking to brokers from all over Australia and as far away as Thiland and the USA, the one broker who stood out from the rest, making the effort to keep in touch with us during our search, offering guidance, support, encouragement and finally our boat 777 was Kelvin Gorrie. Kelvin kept us in mind knowing our budget and listening to our requirements for the layout we were looking for and a boat with the qualities to handle the adventure we have planned.

Kelvin with the team at Multihull Solutions ironed out the bumps, finding our boat assisting with inspection, slipping, repairs, sea trials and even the registration.

Once again Kelvin thank you for your efforts.

Kind regards,

Michael  and Wendy

Hi Joe,

Just wanted to say thank you for your time and patience with us in trying to find a boat. You were one of the people that we dealt with that we really appreciated and would recommend.

I hope you have a lovely Xmas with your family and wish you the best for the coming year.

Kind Regards,

Hi Joe,

I don’t think I’ve purchased any of my boats through a broker before and the experience was smooth and pleasant. I got the impression that your team was on both my side and Andrews, trying to do a deal that suited both and got us over the line in a manner that we felt okay about it. 

Job well done.  Catherine and I are looking forward to stepping aboard Audacious and heading off into the blue yonder.

Kind regards, 

Gavin

 

Dr Gavin LeSueur - owner of "Audacious" Crowther 43 - author of "Multihull Seamanship"

Since taking delivery of our Ship in May 2015 , we have just clocked up 6000 nautical miles of cruising on the East coast of Australia from the pickup point at Coomera, to Sydney, then north to the beautiful Whitsundays then south to the roaring forties of the southern parts of Australia and our home port in Tasmania.

The boat has provided us with an excellent passage maker and has performed well in a variety of sea conditions and has been a comfortable live aboard cruiser.

We have six grandchildren all who have spent some time on the boat and as yet have not found life at sea too stressful, for themselves or the Skipper.

Early 2017 we will take the boat in the circumnavigation of Tasmania, a 4 week cruise in some of the most scenic waters of this beautiful island state, then take the boat north to warmer waters for the winter, then home again for Christmas and our southern summer.

The boat is sound, reliable, easy to handle with 2 people on passages, and economical with a long cruise potential at 10 kts, and a sprint capacity to avoid bad weather.

The boat has met all our expectations and apart from a few teething issues and a steep learning curve to gain confidence in handling her in tight spots, there have been no major issues.

We hope anyone who takes on one of these vessels has the same positive experience we have had.

Thanx to the multihull team for their support with this project,
Regards

To The Manager

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Multihull Solutions for the recent sale of Island Buoy.

My experience with Multihull Solutions, with the purchase of “Minx” Fusion 40 and the sale of “Island Buoy” have far exceeded my expectations.

The Sale Representative, Kelvin Gorrie, who was directly involved in both these transactions conducted himself in a very professional manner ensuring his full attention and made himself available at all times.

Accordingly I have highly recommended Kelvin and Multihull Solutions to a number of my friends who are in the process of buying/selling their vessels.

Once again thank you Multihull Solutions and in particular Kelvin for making this experience as stress free as possible.

Please feel free to contact me should you wish to discuss this matter further.

Kind regards

Gary and Joey Angove

Hi Anna,

Just wanted to send a quick email to thank you so much for your time this week, it was very much appreciated and we are really looking forward to our new boat (even though we have to wait a year !)

Thanks again, I am sure we will see you again.

Nina

Nina, owner of new Helia 44 Evolution (on her way!)

I’d been going to the Whitsundays chartering on and off over the last fifteen years while regularly drooling over the big cats on the Multihull Solutions site.

I’d never quite been able to justify the costs of outright ownership given I’d probably only be on the boat for a month or two a year but then, the Helia 44 syndicate launched. I researched it thoroughly with some boating buddies who had been involved in syndicates before and it was an absolute no brainer for me to get on board the syndicate. 4 weeks a year on an awesome boat, for not much more dollar wise than chartering one for a week to ten days.

The boat itself has exceeded all my expectations and the syndicate management by Multihull Solutions has been absolutely first rate. I can’t recommend it more highly and I’m happy to field anyone call if they have any questions.

Glenn

Glenn Gibson, syndicate owner of "Aurora" 2014 Helia 44

To Mark Elkington,

Now that the sale of our catamaran SARACEN is behind us and I have had time to reflect on the process I feel I should make mention of the role your Gold Coast office played.

As you know the contract time had to be extended more than once due to certain defects found during the out-of -water survey and to disruption caused by the Xmas/New Year break.

Along the way I found that Kelvin acted in the most professional and friendly manner helping both ourselves and Max (the buyer) through the more difficult areas of negotiation.

I firmly believe he is credit to your organisation and would have no hesitation in passing this to other boaties.

Regards

Rob & Marg

Rob & Marg Craigie, sellers of "Saracen" Brady 44 catamaran

Almost a year into owning a share in Aurora, both the Multihull Solutions syndication model and the Helia 44  itself have far exceeded our expectations.

The Helia is just brilliant and a great boat for cruising the Whitsundays – lots of room both above and below decks, an enormous cockpit area (where we spend most of our time) and it’s just a pleasure to sail.

Multihull Solutions put together an ideal set of specifications, equipment and inventory for Aurora – perfectly suited to the location of the boat, the shared use arrangement and to the preferences of the type of owners who have joined the syndicate.

The management of the syndicate by Multihull Solutions includes arranging the annual booking roster, managing the quick weekly turnarounds (including any maintenance work required) and full technical support – and the service has been first class.

The Hamilton Island Marina is the ideal base for the boat – with the ability to fly directly in, grab your bags and be aboard the boat within just a few minutes, as well as the convenience of being able to use the resort facilities and restaurants whilst in port.

In all, a great way to get regular time aboard a well appointed boat in the Whitsundays, at a fraction of the cost of chartering without the hassles (and cost) of sole ownership.

Well done Multihull Solutions!

 

David & Mel Gittus, syndicate owner of "Aurora", 2014 Helia 44

I bought a Fountaine Pajot 38 foot Athena in 2000. This vessel was under charter management through Sunsail. After its six year charter life I based it at Abell Point Marina using it privately whenever I could away from my office in Sydney (usually every six to eight weeks).

As the cost of running a private sailing catamaran in the Whitsundays gradually became prohibitive, moreso as the vessel aged and the wear and tear of it’s early charter life began to manifest, I sold her in May 2012.

Quite quickly my family and friends began to miss our regular Whitsunday sailing adventures. When we sold the Athena we said we would charter, but we never did – it seemed too expensive and restricting after having experienced the freedom to take my own boat wherever I liked, whenever I liked.

When the opportunity to invest in the first Multihull Solutions Helia syndicate presented itself, I immediately became interested. Here was the opportunity to replicate the years of private ownership without the cost, worry and hassle of mooring, maintenance, insurance etc, etc. The “buy in” price was reasonable and affordable. The model for paying on-going expenses and allocating weeks of use works.

The vessel itself has a real “wow” impact when my friends first jump on board. Its accommodations comfortable and luxurious – the owners cabin “to die for”. I find it easy to sail and manoeuvre despite its comparative larger size to my previous 38 footer.

Multihull Solutions has been excellent in managing the boat, its maintenance, turn around at end of each use, allocation of usage between owners and resolving some of the conflicts around this – the entire syndication has worked better than I envisaged.

The boat works hard given its 48 weeks owners use each year in what can sometimes be challenging conditions, but with its regular maintenance together with the little jobs each of we owners do during our time on board keeps the boat looking and functioning at her best.

The initial syndication period is for three years (option to five), and when this is over my expectation is the vessel will have a reasonable resale value that will be returned to owners.

The Multihull Solutions syndication model functions and is far superior to any other I contemplated.

 

Robert Peile, syndicate owner of "Aurora", 2014 Helia 44

Hi Kelvin,

Just touching base to let you know that Saracen arrived safely to Lake Macquarie at around 12.30 on Thursday.

We also wanted to let you know that Kerry & Ian from Coastal Yacht Deliveries would be hard pressed to be beaten for giving amazing service, their relate-ability, reliability and professionalism was awesome.

While we are obviously not experienced in receiving this type of service we can honestly say we thoroughly enjoyed the experience of meeting and being guided by them and really felt we were getting 100 ++% of their knowledge and expertise.

We have had the same experience in dealing with yourself and Multihull Solutions so all in all Saracen started life with us a a fantastic adventure and to date is continuing in the same vain.

Kind regards and big thank you to everyone.

Max & Sharon

Kevin and Anna,

My thanks to you, Kevin in particular of course.  Multihull Solutions have provided me with an excellent, professional and trouble free transaction. I know there was a lot of liason and administration completed by you behind the scenes for which my efforts were the ease of “print/scan/send”.

Thanks again. Hope we meet up again sometime.

Regards,

Julian

Julian - seller of 2010 Leopard 38 "Jumelle"

Our Fountaine Pajot Cumberland 47 “Mercury” was ordered and  built in France and delivered to Brisbane by car carrier in May.

The agents, Multihull Solutions then set about commissioning the boat using  GCCM  trade services and Michael (Nod) coordinating the work for us, assisted by Katie and Condor.

A hardtop was constructed and clears added and extra refrigeration and other details, before the boat was presented at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show and then taken south to Sydney for the Sydney Boat Show.

Australian record circumnavigation catamaran skipper Bruce Arms came on the trip with us to Sydney, to assist with the commissioning process and was impressed with the boat’s sea-keeping and fuel efficiency, which were important criteria for us in selecting this boat.

From Sydney we took the the boat to the Whitsundays, with a side trip to Fraser Island and Mooloolaba, then serious fun with family and friends for 12 weeks, which included a week with Multihull Rendezvous boat owners. We have now turned south for a clean up at GCCM then further south to Tasmania for our summer.

Multihull services at Mooloolaba and Boatworks at Coomera have made our voyage very easy by introducing us to a wide range of capable trades at GCCM and surrounding areas, making our project with this boat relatively simple, bearing in mind this was our first major catamaran project.

The end result is a great boat for cruising from the wild south coast of Tasmania to the tropical corals of northern Queensland and beyond.

Hi Guys,

Every now and then you come across a service or a person that provides you with something more than you expect. Let me say that is what we got when we purchased our catamaran through Kelvin at Multihull Solutions at The Boatworks on the Gold Coast.

Kelvin made what could have been a daunting and complicated process, a pleasant and rewarding experience. He is a consumant professional and yet manages to put you at ease with his friendly and relaxed manner and he always seems to have a smile on his face.

We think the team at Multihull Solutions and the Boatworks are a great combination with Kelvin being able to steer us in the right direction for any work we wanted doing and we were very pleased with everyone we dealt with.

We certainly would make Kelvin Gorrie and Multihull Solutions our first choice when looking for the services of a yacht broker and we would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Kind Regards,

Alan & Sue

Hi guys,

Just dropping you a line to let you know we bought our 50ft sailing catamaran, Lady Frances, from a great fella, Kelvin Gorrie, at Boat Works on 12th December last year.

We were based at Manly for the first seven months familiarising ourselves with her. We set sail early July for the Whitsunday’s and have had an amazing journey so far! As the Northerly winds are just kicking in we will start our way back next week.
Thanks again to Kelvin for his personalised and ongoing service!

Cheers
Debbie and Matt Stevenson

Hi Katie,

Dear Rachel and Katie,

Just a special thank you from both of us for a fantastic week of fun and enjoyable memories.  We had a blast!  It was very nice meeting you guys. Anna’s nibbles were just amazing and we really loved the Salmon dip.

If you are ever down Southport way, feel free to pop in for a coffee or a coldie and have a look around the workshop to see what we do.

Dear Mark and Rachel,

We are writing to thank you, the organisers of Whitsunday Rendezvous 2015, for the most fabulously organised fun event we have attended.  We were recommended to attend by both Drew and Joanne Wooler from Lickety Split 2 and hugh and Leigh Hodgkinson from Blue Spirit who have been on the event before themselves.

From the very beginning the organisation was excellent and nothing was too hard for the girls to arrange for us. Each day and event was so well catered for and run so smoothly and we know that behind each and every day the efforts of Rachel, Katie, Anna and Norto made the whole event fantastic and we really can’t say enough about how they looked after everyone and did their very best to sure everyone felt welcomed and were enjoying themselves all the time.

We will recommend this event to others and even may do Sail Indonesia next year if we don’t sell The boat.

Thanks again to the fantastic team!
Justin and Roxey Grunwald – Two Up Together

Hi Rach, Katie, Anna, Norto and Mark,

Thanks again for a wonderful week, you guys know how to host an event! It is great to be involved with such positive, creative and dynamic people – love your work 🙂

Thanks for the pics, the poem and the recipes – great memories there, looking forward to next year xxx

Jo & Drew Wooler – Lickity Split

Hi Guys,

We were so pleased with the works we had done at Boat Works we thought we’d take a few minutes to put it in writing to you.

We were very impressed and extremely satisfied with the staff at Multihull Solutions (especially Katie & Nod) in how they dealt with the factory in France and pursued items that needed warranty repairs. Multihull Solutions were successful in gaining the necessary approvals to have all warranty works undertaken. With the exception of the keel the repairs were really only cosmetic in nature, but nether the less it was great to see them completed.

We have friends with other new production boats (from a different manufacturer) who have not been treated as well as we have. We have no hesitations in recommending people looking to buy a new multihull to speak with Multihull Solutions and check out the Fountaine Pajot range.

The after sales service at Multihull’s is second to none. We definitely feel like we were more than just a sale, with the staff so friendly and helpful when we make contact looking for advice.

Thanks Nod & Katie, we really appreciate what you have done for us!

All the best & kind regards.

Hi Ant,

In the short 5 months since our first contact with yourself we have moved from having a dream of owning at 380 LAGOON to now being the owners of a fully imported vessel thanks to your efforts. To purchase a 2010 model with all the additional fit out far exceeded our expectations of what we could have afforded, to buy in Australia would have seen us in a much older vessel with minimal fit out.

Your support and advice has assisted Teena and I immensely though the sometimes daunting process of purchasing and international vessel. The usual ups and downs were encounter but they we few and manageable. The hardest part of this whole process would have been when we were trying to secure a marina berth at Noumea. Having said that we did managed to squeeze in a holiday at New Caledonia whilst we baby sat our boat waiting for the berth.

The 2 ½ months that we left her sit at Port Moselle was a very long wait, this wait however allowed me to arrange all the importation papers with Grahams Byles from CARGO NETWORK. Your recommendation to use Graham for the importation was spot on.

The 1300 nautical mile trip from NOUMEA to Cairns was just over 9 days of magic conditions. (triple slot sailing was a term used a lot during the trip). Teena has already commented that she would do it all again if given the chance, not bad for someone that has always said she needs to see land at all times.

We are about to start our customising so we can begin our minimum 2 years of live aboard, no set plans on destinations as yet but we will call in for beer and wine with yourself when we are down your end of the state.

Warmest regards from 2 very happy individuals.

Hi Kelvin,

We have arrived in Cairns and Hapai has not disappointed. On behalf of Bert and myself I would like to thank you for your professionalism in handling the sale of the vessel. Also we would like to put on record our appreciation for your help after we had purchased the vessel, particularly your prompt procurement of the fuel pump and your assistance in obtaining provisions for our trip. You certainly went beyond the call of duty.

Allan Clarke and Bert Ziviani

Dear Richard,

We have left OZ and are currently in California trying to buy a fifth wheel and pickup truck. It is not proving as easy as I thought. There is too much choice and items spread out over a large area. This is nothing like the wonderful experience we had with Multihull solutions.

I am still amazed at how quickly and smoothly everything went with the selling of Promise. Linking up with you was the best possible thing we could have done. I spent the last few months telling everyone what a great experience we had with you in charge of our boat sale.

Gordon

Good morning Katie,

Luke (Geographe Engineering) has completed the aerial installation during last week. He has done a good job and the TV is working well.

Thank you for your support and please also let Nod and Mark know that I appreciate the excellent post delivery support that Multihull Solutions have provided to us.

All the best.

Dennis Kelly, Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41

Hi Katie and Multihull Solutions team,

Just a quick note to thank you guys for all the help and work done, please pass on to Pedro (Pete) that we were very impressed with all his work and wish to thank him for a job well done, worth his weight in gold. We know it was a bit of an ask just lobbing and saying “here we are” but everyone took it in their stride and got the lot done.

We are comfortably anchored in the great sandy straights with the solar panels solaring and our new crew member “Otto” (otto pilot) has been terrific. Our best to all of you for making our life easy.

Car, Don & Boris.

Hi Rachel and Richard,

Thanks for taking the time out at short notice to show us the cats last week.

Anne and I were both impressed with your attitude and professionalism. We have dealt with many other yacht brokers in the past, both as a buyer and a seller, and strangely those traits are often lacking!

Your help and advise was much appreciated, will be in touch soon.

David and Anne

Hi Rachel

Yes Anne and Myself were very impressed with all your cats and also more impressed with the professional advice and help from the staff on site at the 2012 Sanctuary Cove Boat Show.

I think we spoke to 4 people on your stand and yes all very helpful.

Rest assured once we are ready to proceed further I will get in contact with you guys. Again thanks for the advise and help. Will be in contact in the next few month I feel.

Anne and Glen McKay

Dear Mark,

I would like to say thank you to you and your staff. You have made the process of one of the biggest decisions in my life very easy and pleasurable. As I have always been very wary and suspicious of sales men. You have shown me their are still good guys in the industry I was very happy that my beautiful new cat was as good as you described and you were right it is a perfect match for me.

Also a special thanks to Rossco for his time and patience with me his general seamanship knowledge and past captaincy of magical. He was able to answer all my questions and much more this made me realize that Magical was for me. As I realized if I missed out on Magical nothing else would compare and never end up with a cat.

Once again Mark thanks! If you have any future customers that are also long distance sales and haven’t already meet you I would only be too happy to tell them of my experience and highly recommend you.

Peter Ellis (Magical)

Dear Mark and team,

Thank you for your assistance in selling our second hand boat. You are to be complimented on your excellent business and your professionalism.

reg Nunn – Executive Chairman, Falloran Capital (owner of Perry Catamarans 2005-2009)

Dear Rossco,

It was a pleasure to meet you on the weekend. You have a fantastic personality and a very happy disposition. We all think you should have come permanently with the boat!I must say I was very impressed with Storm Bird. I loved it when we were under sail. As I said I had never been on a sail boat, and the experience was wonderfully relaxing. More so for me because I was not required to do anything but sit and relax.

I hope you have a safe trip north and a great time too. I will attach more pictures in other emails to follow so that there are not too many in one lot.

Thanks again for all you have done for us, and especially Stephen.

Doris – Mahe 36 “Storm Bird”

Dear Mark & Patrick,

On 9th July I will be departing for France to finally take possession of my new boat. I would like to take this opportunity to say how much I have appreciated all your efforts, advice and assistance which you have given me during the past few months with regard to the purchase of the boat.I have come a long way since sailing along the Mediterranean coastline on Geoff’s boat last August to actually owning such a beautiful boat. I consider this to be not only a personal achievement on my part, but also a realization of a dream come true.

Again, my sincerest thanks to you both for helping me turn my dream into a reality.

Filippina – Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41 (purchased ex-factory)

Hi Mark and Team,

Just a quick note to let you know that we have had a truly great experience in the delivery of our new Orana ‘TigerLily’.

Nod exceeded my expectations on many levels during the commissioning and delivery process and your team takes customer service to a whole new level. We have been made to feel very special and very welcome. Thank you!

We had a great day out with Rosco and went through the reefing thing and we thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.

Many thanks again to you all!

Peter and Robyn Law (Fountaine Pajot Orana 44)

Hi Mark,

My feet haven’t touched the ground! I’m not exactly sure what retirement means but I seem to be working harder and not getting paid for it.. Sue and I were reflecting the other day on how and why we bought the Lipari. We only went to the show to “suss-out” the market with no intention of buying a boat until this year and then a second one at that.

Unfortunately and fortunately it was love at first sight especially as far as Sue was concerned and your helpfulness and hospitality set your organisation apart from the rest. Anyway the rest is history as they say and we are now eagerly looking forward to her arrival. See you soon.

Paul & Sue (Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41)

Dear Multihull Solutions Team,

We have now had our stunning new Mahé 36 Evolution for just under a month and we wanted to write to thank you for making the process of buying our dream yacht so easy.From start to finish everything has been fantastic; nothing has been too much trouble for anyone of you. We have had every question (no matter how strange or silly) answered and everyone has made us feel so comfortable along the way. The boat came off the ship in Fremantle and we were simply astounded by the skill and efficiency shown by Nod and Phillipe in commissioning the boat. In no time at all, there she was berthed proudly out the front of our home in Mandurah, WA.

Since then, we have been onboard as much as possible and have had some great times on her already. She is very comfortable and loves to be sailed in good breeze, we are finding her super fast when racing our friends (particularly those monohulls). The master plan is to go cruising in 4 years and will probably embark on that voyage in a new boat so you will be hearing from us again very soon.In summary, all I can say is everything is perfect and we feel we have not only made a great buy we have made some splendid friends along the way.

We look forward to seeing more of you all in years to come and anytime you are in the West you have a boat to stay and sail on!

Thanks guys and girls you have made us very happy!

Rob & Ann Campbell and Geoff & Cheryl Wrigley – Fountaine Pajot Mahé 36 Evolution “Purrgatory”

Dear Multihull Solutions Team,

We couldn’t be happier with the results and comfort it bring us and to all who we have become our friends over the past 12 months as well. Ken and I would like to thank everyone for their friendship, helpfulness, on going support throughout the purchase of our boat. We both look forward to a continuing warm relationship for ALL of the future.

Christine & Ken Cork – Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41

Dear Multihull Solutions Team,

I’d like to thank you guys for the way you went about delivering our dream. Your professionalism, hospitality and generosity were wonderful. The little things are very much appreciated (hotel, advice, dinner etc).And thank you for Rossco! How good is that man? He took me from one who’d rarely been on a yacht, to three nights at sea in big winds and seas (while continuously keeping on teaching re passage making, navigation, radio etc!). Then, with minimal sleep, had the energy and intuition to give Jo and me a sailing lesson in Port Stephens, making sure that Jo didn’t get scared off.Finally he managed a Shumack extended family dinner, charming everyone in the process!

We look forward to seeing you guys again, and to many happy sailing times with you!

Hi Guys,

Gaye and I would like to thank you all for your care and hospitality during our stay and during the handover of our new Lipari 41. We were very impressed with your professionalism and the quality of the boat from our arrival in Mooloolaba to arriving in Airlie Beach.I would also like to add how impressed we were with Rossco – from his tall stories from a legendary past right through to his professionalism and care shown during the trip. With it being our first experience with night sailing, he was very caring of Gaye during what ended up quite a rough trip in the last couple of days (with 35 knot stern winds). Gaye handled it all very well indeed, but with the care of Rossco even better….You have a little gem with Rossco, so please thank him for us.

Allan and Gaye Gray – Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41

Hi Richard and Mark,

It is me that needs to congratulate all of you! Throughout this negotiation I have found nothing but impeccable professionalism! You can count on me for referrals and testimonials.

Last year (2009) I bought a boat! A catamaran in fact, and I didn’t really intend to…..I started making phone calls about boats and there was some interesting industry interaction – some of the dealers were helpful and some just couldn’t care unless I was buying today! More phone calls, more dreaming in Boat Trader and eventually a trip to QLD to view a couple of boats. This put us in touch with Mark Elkington of Multihull Solutions, and I’ve gotta say I was soon getting impressed with the offers of service, airport pickups, accommodation booking and so on.Still no intention to hand over the cash NOW! However, Elana fell in love with a Lavezzi 40 and so did I. Compared to the service we had received from other catamaran companies, we knew we were in the right place. We felt welcome, unpressured and informed with the guys (and girls) from Multihull Solutions. We were so unpressured that – bugger it – we made our own decision at that point.In at the deep end, let’s make an offer, and we did. The usual to-ing and fro-ing all made incredibly easy by Mark’s professionalism, and all of a sudden we owned a big cat! But the best was yet to come.In the delivery process I got involved with all the other crew: Nod, Richard, Jane and the rest. They made us feel so welcome, even when I knew we were being pains.

Nod was AMAZING in the delivery process. EVERY request I had was made to sound so easy to sort out. I had never, ever, ever received service of that quality in my 53 years on this planet. NOTHING was too much trouble, this was incredible fun getting the boat ready for a 3,500k sail home. Only made fun because of the professionalism and incredible will to help from the Multihull Solutions crew.

It could easily have been very far from fun without these guys on our side. If you are in the market for a catamaran, buy whatever you like, but if you don’t at least give the Multihull Solutions crew a go you may be getting a very second rate experience.

I have always been well looked after by the Multihull Solutions team. They are friendly, have excellent boating knowledge and have always offered outstanding customer service. I can recommend their service to all boating buyers and owners.

To be new owner of Mahe 36′, Grace and I finally calmed down and want to say something about your service. From start to finish, from commissioning to training, we are extremely pleased with your professional operation.You provided an accurate estimate, quickly got our boat underway, kept us informed of her progress and delivered it in great shape.

What’s more, Rossco is a very responsible and knowledgeable instructor.We learned a lot from him, had a good time and he made our training very enjoyable. Multihull Solutions is an absolute pleasure to work with. If we are in need again, we will definitely call you. We would recommend Mutihull Solutions to all our boating friends.

Thank you very much for all your help, Mark! I had contacted a couple of people, but you were the only one to reply and help me out. It is nice to see that good old fashion service is still available. We will be recommending your company to others and wish you every success.

Thank you very much for all the help and assistance you have given us over the past few months. Your support has been greatly appreciated and has made the whole experience very enjoyable.

eter & Val (Fountaine Pajot Lavezzi 40)

Both my wife and I wish to thank you for your substantial efforts with the sale of our 57ft Marquises, particularly during the uncertainty created by the current global financial crisis.We were pleased that you were able to locate a purchaser quickly and that you managed any problems immediately to expedite the sale as soon as possible. Your no-nonsense approach was appreciated, and by constantly keeping me in the loop with regards to the selling process, I was able to monitor all aspects of the sale with complete ease.

This was particularly important due to my current health problems. Please also pass on my regards to Mark and all your office staff who were also courteous and professional at all times. I would have no hesitation in recommending Multihull Solutions brokerage services to anyone looking at selling their yacht as your expertise is second to none in Australia.
