Wonderful First Year for the Multihull Group

Wonderful First Year for the Multihull Group

The Multihull Group (TMG), founded by John Cowpe, Tim Vine and Peter Hrones has had a magnificent first year. The team have exceeded all expectations and in doing so, have been appointed Best Lagoon Overseas distributor for 2016 and acquired the exciting McConaghy brand.


They’ve also enjoyed connecting with Australia’s existing Lagoon owners and participated in a very successful Escapade in the Whitsundays with over 17 Lagoons in attendance.


According to John Cowpe, “With Lagoon, we’re working with the number one. Lagoon’s professionalism, design and build strength is unmatched in the industry. Their range of models is unprecedented. For example, the Lagoon 38, which is approaching 1000 boats sold, is now the most popular sailing boat ever made. In the mid range, 170 of the fast new 42s have sold in the first 6 months. And at the top end the recently launched Lagoon Seventy Seven is sold out to the end of 2019.”


The second driving force behind TMG’s successful first year is the level of customer service they provide. When buyers are choosing their boat they work with a team who have sold more sailing boats in Australia than any other. TMG know what’s right for our unique sailing conditions and what configuration will work best for the buyer’s unique needs. After the sale, the commissioning process is handled seamlessly whether launching locally or at the factory in Europe.  Ongoing servicing and support is handled by Australia’s leading yacht service company the Windcraft Group Service Centre.


TMG’s acquisition of the McConaghy brand has further enhanced the success of TMG’s first year


John Cowpe explains, “We’re also very excited to bring McConaghy to the market and offer our buyers a top-end, fast catamaran with stand-out design and options for customisation. Jason Ker’s input in the design has been fabulous and the appointment of ‘design unlimited’ for the interior spaces signals the intent to produce some very nice boats.”


TMG’s second Lagoon 630MY has just been loaded onto the ship and is on her way to Australia. The team will be conducting private viewings at Sanctuary Cove and Sydney International Boat Shows in 2017. They have also managed to secure a Lagoon 42 for February delivery Downunder. They’ve kept this one light and have fitted a code 0 in black, which will look stunning flying from the single line furler off the factory-fitted prodder. Contact the team for more details.




The Windcraft Group opened their Yacht Service Centre in 2008 to meet needs of an ever-growing family of boat owners and with the goal to lead the industry in terms of owner support. The team have commissioned and subsequently maintained over 400 yachts and power boats.


The Windcraft Group have a full time shipwright and marine electrician on site and enjoy long-term partnerships with multiple specialist sub-contractors. The depth of knowledge is superb.


From the moment you sit down to specify your new build Lagoon, you will be guided by a team of professionals focused on delivering the right boat for you and your family, and caring for you for the long term so you can enjoy every precious moment on the water.



The team are meticulous with every detail during construction and commissioning. TMG have developed extensive systems checks for every vessel prior to handover. All new boats come with a manufacturer’s warranty backed by the TMG/Windcraft Group. The team have established a systemised warranty procedure and deal directly with Lagoon for you.


The service centre team help you understand what is covered under warranty and help liaise with the manufacturers on your behalf should an issue arise. They love to help owners fulfill their dreams.


Some owners need help to learn to sail or deal with marina berthing. Others want to find spare parts while they are away cruising. And others want to make the trip of a lifetime across oceans and need the service team to prepare their Lagoon.


Whatever your dreams and aspirations, the team at TMG help you live them.
