Phil Berman

Phillip Berman is the president of The Multihull Company and a lifetime catamaran sailor and racer. He grew up racing Hobie Cats in California in the late 1960’s and published his first book on catamaran racing at the age of seventeen. He went on to write many more books on the subject including the best-selling catamaran training manual of all time. In 2011 Phil formed Balance Catamarans to co-design and fabricate his own line of boutique, high-end, semi-custom performance voyaging catamarans.

Alexis de Boucaud

Alexis grew up racing dinghies in the waters of France. He immigrated to the United States as a young man and developed an interest in offshore cruising. Alexis began his professional yachting career as a captain on a Fountaine-Pajot Marquises 57 catamaran. He is bilingual, was educated in the United States and has worked in the US, Europe and the Caribbean. He has sailed extensively on multihulls and particularly enjoys performance cats.

Cal Landau

Cal grew up in Pennsylvania, spending every summer since born on the rivers, on houseboats, speedboats and did some serious water skiing. Sailing is now his passion and his father is now 94 years old and still enjoys sailing with Cal. He and his wife Marty are USCG certified 50 ton captains and spend as much time as possible on their 42 ft. Fountaine Pajot catamaran in West Palm Beach, FL.  Cal now serves as TMC’s Associate Broker in West Palm Beach and his vast experience as a broker and cruiser are welcome additions to TMC’s expert team.

Will Miller

Captain Will Miller grew up in Virginia and learned to sail in the Chesapeake Bay. He has lived in Charleston since 2001 and knows the city well. He developed a love of the water at a very young age and chose to pursue a career as a captain after graduating from the College of Charleston in 2005. As a lifelong sailor Captain Will has traveled extensively throughout the waters of the United States and Caribbean. He has been a certified sailing instructor and licensed US Coast Guard Captain since 2006. Shortly after, Will joined The Multihull Company as an associate broker.

Carl Olivier

Carl Olivier was born in Cape Town, South Africa. Through his love of the sailing lifestyle, together with his innate business sense, he found his niche in yacht brokering. After 5 successful years as a yacht broker in South Africa, Carl went on to form his own brokerage, which he sold years later to take his family cruising.  Carl has made the Caribbean his home and continues to live aboard, enthusiastically serving TMC clients in and around the Virgin Islands.

Chris Rundlett

Chris Rundlett’s first sailing adventure was on a small Sunfish owned by the U.S. Coast Guard where his father was stationed in North Dakota. Since then he dreamed of bigger horizons and sailed whenever he had the chance.  In 2008, Chris started working with a sailing school in the Caribbean – St. Vincent and the Grenadines. He enjoyed sailing in these exquisite waters so much, he decided to stay. Chris found that many of their sailing school students were interested in buying boats and in turn joined The Multihull Company as an associate broker in 2013.

Zvonimir Kalinic

Zvonimir, or “Ze”, comes from the Island of Krk, the largest Croatian island. As he has always been adventurous, the coast of the Adriatic Sea was the perfect location for various hobbies that have now become his profession. After many years of the yachting life he decided to further develop his skills in the area of Marine Surveying. For the last couple of years he was involved in various aspects of surveying and has used that knowledge to join TMC as an Associate Broker since 2015.
