Inaugural PIMEX exhibitors Multihull Solutions have had a spectacular start to the show, selling a Fountaine Pajot Summerland 40 LC power catamaran within hours of the show’s opening.
The Australian company has just expanded its operations to SE Asia and have been impressed by the quality of the Phuket International Boat Show.
“The quality of the show and the number of genuine visitors has been very high,” said Andrew De Bruin, general manager of Multihull Solutions in Asia. “Our stand has had a constant flow of quality buyers, with a strong Russian presence.”
Mr De Bruin said that a European expat purchased the Fountaine Pajot Summerland 40 LC and plans to keep the catamaran in Thailand for personal use on family holidays.
The buyer, who has asked to remain anonymous, decided to purchase the Summerland 40 after extensively researching the multihull market.
“Of the many boats I reviewed, the Summerland 40 offered the best fuel consumption and range. It also has a great use of space, an apartment-style Owner’s suite, and outstanding stability and performance. I am a keen diver and this boat provides a stable and spacious platform for my family to enjoying diving throughout Asia,” he said.
