My wife and I did spend quite a bit of time writing a more detailed blog post about our experience with both Just Catamarans and MultiTech, but I also wanted to make sure to share our experience here.
We did not receive any price
breaks or sponsorship from either company. We started our service work
with Just Catamarans and had MultiTech finish. We also purchased our catamaran
from Just Catamarans.
In total we spent $48,500 USD with Just Catamarans and $6,068 USD with MultiTech Marine
We found the quality of work
from MultiTech to be much higher than Just Catamarans. We did not have to follow-up or point out problems with the work from MultiTech. Gerald from MultiTech was coordinating (and doing some of) the work on our boat
. The only issue with had with MultiTech was… they didn’t seem to want to find a solution to our fridge/freezer gasket
We are really happy with our new lithium-ion batteries
and the output of the solar panels
that Just Catamarans installed... just not the quality of workmanship.
Below are some pictures of the issues with the Just Catamarans work, including rust, incomplete bits, and such. If we wouldn’t have been as involved as we were, the bill from Just Catamarans would have been much more (e.g. they wanted to replace our Sirius XM Raymarine
module… but we suspected the issue as a cable run that JC damaged while moving our antennas – replacing the module would have cost us a few more dollars and not solved
Just because we had a good or bad experience with either company, doesn’t mean you will as well. My recommendation would be, get both companies to do smaller bits of work first and see which one you like better.
