Media Release Posted: 23rd July 2012.
Multihull Solutions is celebrating after being awarded the prestigious Fountaine Pajot Worldwide Distributor of the Year title for an unprecedented three consecutive years.
The Fountaine Pajot head office in France announced the title in July, acknowledging Multihull Solutions’ outstanding sales record that continues to eclipse other distributors from larger market regions including Asia, Europe and the United States.
Multihull Solutions managing director Mark Elkington said that receiving the title for the third year in a row was an outstanding achievement that the entire team was celebrating.
“We’ve all worked exceptionally hard over recent years to provide product choice and exceptional client service which has translated into increasingly strong sales across all our brands, and in particular the Fountaine Pajot range,” Mark said.
Fountaine Pajot has a worldwide network of approximately 50 dealers who are responsible for all sales of the company’s sail and power catamaran range. A dealer must perform to maintain their exclusive dealership license with the Fountaine Pajot yard. Multihull Solutions has continually exceeded these targets with sales over AUD$40M in the last three years.
“Fountaine Pajot catamarans offer the best balance of performance, value for money, offshore capability, safety and comfort above all other international production catamarans,” Mark said.
“They also lead in design with new model releases every year. Our buyers are so well educated today, that they can see through old revamped models as offered by many of our competitors,” he said.
“Multihull Solutions handles more new catamaran orders across its entire range of brands than any other company in the Southern Hemisphere. Our business is growing every year because we carefully consult with clients to ensure they buy the most suitable catamaran for their specific requirements. We do not have to push one brand or one design concept. This has been the instrumental key to our success, and so often, Fountaine Pajot is the buyer’s ultimate choice after they complete their review of the market.”
Multihull Solutions has grown significantly since its inception in 2008, now operating an Australian sales office in Mooloolaba, a New Zealand sales office in Auckland, and has sales consultants based in North Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia. With a dedicated team of more than 15 professionals, the company offers new and pre-owned multihull sales, a quality Brokerage Division, Sales-ready programs, charter investment programs, sail training, multihull deliveries / relocations and much more.
