The boating industry could learn a lot from these two companies.

Throw Seawind in there as well. I've had the owner of Seawind personally answer questions on our then almost twenty year old boat.

You can add Antares to that short list as well.

When you look at getting work done on your Ford car you go to a dealer not Ford direct in the US. The system is the same.
I am happy to nominate whom the Australian Agent is for FP, Catana, and others, Multihull Solutions.... Further, I will state that yes the above is true, F.P. basically sell them to the Agents, who then sell them on. In my case the Agent "Multihull Solutions", has performed above and beyond expectations. I mean really for me, exceeding expectations. I am quite pleased with their Service and Personnel, and would buy from them again.

I think they are the middle ground, and mediate all issues and try to get compensation from F.P. where warranted. I have no complaints as all, and would recommend them to anyone.. Knowledgeable, top Service, and always approachable and contactable.

Lagoon dont want to know about any manufacturing faults full stop.
The boats dealer who delivered the boat said to me re the issues "but you did not buy it from us so too bad"
I could not buy it from you as you were not selling it!
So you hand over a million and they totally ignore you.
I buy a Porsche for $150,000 and they wont leave me alone?
Expect nothing then you wont be disappointed.
