The recent Sanctuary Cove Boating Festival was a major success for Multihull Solutions, resulting in record sales for the company.

The show, one of the only Asia-Pacific boat shows held this year due to Covid-19 cancellations across the industry, saw a constant stream of genuine buyers at the Multihull Solutions stand.

Interest was particularly strong in the Fountaine Pajot and ILIAD Catamarans brands – the ILIAD 50 power catamaran hosted hundreds of inspections during the event.

At the close of the three-day show, Multihull Solutions had taken almost AUD$12.5 million in orders and conditional contracts pending sea trials across its range of sail and power multihulls.

During the boat show, two ILIAD 50s went under contract and an order was taken on the new ILIAD 60, which is due for release in early 2021.

Multihull Solutions managing director Mark Elkington said the adapted-format boat show had surpassed all expectations and resulted in being one of the most successful in history for the company.


“We certainly didn’t anticipate the astonishing number of visitors or their readiness to place orders across our range of sail and power boats,” Mark said.

“It’s an extremely positive sign for the industry that boat sales are at their strongest levels despite the impact of the pandemic,” he said.
