About PBM - Patrick Boyd Multihulls

Patrick Boyd Multihulls image
Patrick Boyd Multihulls Ltd. is one of the foremost and longest-established multihull specialists in the world. Since 1975 PBM Ltd. has offered a first-class brokerage list and has sold over 1,300 cats and tris - some of them more than once. Since 1999, the company has also acquired the agency for some of the best new designs around, including Tony Smith's Telstar models, John Shuttleworth's Ocean Cheetah, and the entire range of Privilege sailing catamarans and Transcat power cats. This wealth of experience, from marine finance to racing sails but above all knowledge and love of multihulls, has made PBM Ltd a respected and trusted name in yacht brokerage, with satisfied buyers and sellers around the world.

Patrick Boyd Multihulls image Sailing multihulls since childhood, Bill Bullimore was YW catamaran European Champion even at 18 years old, built his own Tornado (5th in Worlds) and funded a 1976 Tornado Olympic campaign by specialised yacht delivery with his company, Multihull Deliveries. Fitting out a 53' cat in the UK, he then sailed it to Greece to charter for four years, with a total of 8 years as a professional yacht skipper in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. He also holds an instrument rated commercial pilot's license and more related to multihull sailing, has keen interest and experience flying sailplanes and hang-gliders! Having previously lived for 18 years in the West Indies, primarily involved in sailmaking, he also developed various marine-related companies, all of which still thrive today and yet still found time to build his Crowther Twiggy Mk.II trimaran over a four year period. Bill has worked in detail with many designers and multihull projects including 'Shockwave', 'Spirit of England' and bigger cats such as the 60' 'Sonamara', the even bigger 93' 'Lammer Law' and the awesome 110' 'Lammer Law'. He has moved back to the UK with his family for his children's education and develop further business interests, now focussed upon his partnership with Patrick. In December 1997, the offices moved firstly to Bill's location in Southampton and then to Wicor Marine at the top of Portsmouth Harbour, more centrally located to the south coast of England.

Patrick Boyd Multihulls image The company was founded in 1975 by Patrick Boyd. During the later part of his 18 years in publishing, Patrick wrote his definitive book "Catamarans in Close-Up" and built one of the first Mk I Iroquois catamarans. In 1973 he was asked to start up the London office for Camper & Nicholsons, operating on large yacht brokerage and charter, to which later in 1975 he started a separate multihull division.
In 1983 he took over the multihull division, renaming it Patrick Boyd Multihulls and ran it successfully for fourteen years becoming a leading industry figure. In 1987 he was elected President of the Yacht Brokers, Designers and Surveyors Association (YBDSA) and on the main council of the British Marine Industries Federation (BMIF). In 1997 he sold Patrick Boyd Multihulls to Bill Bullimore, but continued to act as a consultant, advisor and friend to the business until his death at 73, in September 2001.
