Sales Soar For Multihull Solutions At Sydney International Boat Show
Published: Monday, 11 August 2014
Multihull Solutions had spectacular sales at the 2014 Sydney International Boat Show recording four catamaran sales and signing three conditional contracts.
Multihull Solutions sold a TAG 50 catamaran as well as three Fountaine Pajot sailing catamarans including two Lipari 41s and a Saba 50.
A Brisbane couple bought the Saba 50, while the Lipari 41 was sold to Victorian clients. Both couples intend to collect their new multihulls directly from the Fountaine Pajot factory in France later this year. The other two confirmed catamaran sales will be delivered to their new owners in Australia in 2015.
Three conditional contracts were also taken on a TAG 75 Custom, a Fountaine Pajot Hélia 44 and another Lipari 41.
“Buyer confidence is very strong at the moment, and catamarans are certainly becoming the choice for those who want to cruise with family and friends around Australia, the Pacific or further afield,” says Multihull Solutions Managing Director Mark Elkington.
Multihull Solutions has noted solid interest from entry-level cruising catamarans through to high-end custom and high-performance options where budget is less restrictive.
“Power catamarans are also proving to take some market share from the traditional monohull powerboat market, and we are taking a new order every six weeks, which is a big change from a few years ago where the market was only two sales per year,” says Elkington.
Multihull Solutions is now looking forward to continuing its success at the Auckland On Water Boat Show from Sept 25-28 and the Mandurah Boat Show Oct 10-12.
