Here are some comments from customers we have sold boats for…
“Andrew [Crawford], I’d like to take this opportunity to formally offer you my sincere thanks for your expert services. You have been totally diligent in exploring all opportunities from your strong database, ensured that our vessel, SW 1000 “Affaire” was properly represented on all major websites, responded quickly to listing the vessel initially and subsequent inspections and were “always there” for both seller and purchaser. You negotiated patiently and honestly and advised of market conditions expertly. You are a straight shooter and a good bloke and I could not recommend you, Seawind Catamarans, or the national Multihull Central team more highly” Shawn Ket, former owner of Seawind 1000 “Affaire”
“My appreciation for your friendly, professional and very diligent service. It exceeded all expectations. I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone looking to buy or sell a multihull,” Colin Gunn, former owner of Farrier 47 “Ricochet”
“Also thanks very much for the help provided in selling Bicoque in this tough market. As you know, we have had doubts at some time but really believe now that we have been doing the right choice by continuously trusting you. We will definitively pass the word to any friend that would be interested in selling / buying a boat.” Eric Latterade, former owner of Fountaine Pajot Belize 43.
“I gave the sale of my OUTREMER 49 to Multihull Central and to other brokers worldwide. In 4 months the sale was realized with efficiency by Multihull Central who had sent me the always interesting buyers. The team with whom I was in contact was very professional. They know the sea and the boats. I found a level of rare expertise at the brokers and a big reactivity there. I sold my boat by Multihull Central and I think of buying the next one by the same company.” Franck Fauquenoy, former owner of Outremer 49 “Alidade”
