I live in the United Kingdom and am a lifelong sailor but when i decided to buy a catamaran I felt I needed some expert advice and assistance. 5 Oceans Marine Group worked as a great team to help me find my first catamaran. After several detailed conversations with Phil about our requirements and the pros and cons of the various yachts, we decided upon our shortlist of catamarans to consider. Delphine Lafitte, 5 Oceans Marine Group’s agent in France, then organized a trip to the south of France where we were able to test sail each of the catamaran brands that we liked and this enabled us to very quickly decide on Catana as a fast, stylish cruising catamaran. But the used Catana we saw in France was not in great condition and a bit overpriced, so Phil identified a particular yacht based in Tortola (not his own company’s listing) and pre-inspected her for us so that when I flew from the UK to Tortola I was able to conduct the survey and complete the purchase in a short space of time. Phil was highly responsive despite being on the other side of the Atlantic! He gave me good impartial advice and as a result I ended up with the perfect yacht. I would recommend The Multihull company to anyone considering buying or selling a catamaran.
