Interesting interview with James Dewing - Builder and CEO of Powerplay Catamarans talking about how…
New Australia & NZ Distributor, New President and New Designs for HH Catamarans
HH Catamarans has named Multihull Central as the exclusive distributor for Australia and New Zealand as the up and coming brand of high performance catamarans releases some innovative new designs and ramps up production for their new 44 and 50 foot models. NZ Boat Sales in association with Multihull Central will market and represent the brand in New Zealand.
This comes as HH Catamarans also recruits Seth Hynes as President to help steer the company into its next stage of growth. Seth who has a marketing background in luxury goods, is well known from his popular YouTube channel ‘The Sailing Family’ which documented his family’s journey halfway around the world on a 51 foot performance catamaran “Archer”.
“We chose Multihull Central to be our distributors due to their experience and knowledge of the performance catamaran segment of the industry,” comments Seth.
Multihull Central who distributes Seawind, Longreach, Outremer, Garcia and Corsair deliver dozens of new boats each year to customers in the Australasia region providing a one stop shop for performance cruisers, with accredited training, charters, delivery services and after sales support.
“We are thrilled to be involved with this super innovative company and the style of boats they are building,” comments Brent Vaughan, Managing Director of Multihull Central.
“Their commitment to performance, innovation, quality and environmental technology is impressive and a sign of the future of our industry.”
As the producer of some of the finest catamarans in the world, HH Catamarans is led by CEO Paul Hakes, a highly respected New Zealand boat builder with a history building high end racing yachts from America’s Cup yachts to ocean racing cat Playstation.
“At HH Catamarans our goal is to build the ultimate performance cruising catamaran with no compromises,” explains Paul, “Using Carbon fibre construction, we can achieve top levels of performance while still providing a level of luxury simply not found on other boats in the market.”
Formed in 2012 when Hakes joined forces with Hudson Yachts, the brand’s most impressive designs include the a range from 44 feet to 88 feet including the HH66, a super high performance all carbon fibre build that went onto win the SAIL Magazine’s Boat of the Year and Best Multihull of the Year in 2018.
But the new 44 and 50 foot models are now also available in the Ocean Cruiser series providing a more cruising oriented package that is less technical to sail and more affordable than the carbon racing oriented HH versions, but with the same performance hull and DNA.
