In the '80's we were part of Hobie Fleet 492 in Singapore and enjoying the "Hobie way of life". In 1990 we brought Nacra Sport Cats into Southeast Asia and launched the brand with our Epic adventure. In 2000 we shifted into high gear with a new formula from Australian High Performance Catamarans. In 2010 we sprouted an extra hull with Corsair trimarans and that brought Seawind to our doorstep. We spent a great deal of time racing multihulls and, in the pursuit of speed set the Malaysian Speed Record with a Hobie Trifoiler. You could say, we've always been nuts for multi's!
Where we came from.
Pro Sail Asia commenced life around Alice Lim and Scott McCook. We really just wanted to enjoy our Hobie sailing, travelling to different venues for the various championships around the region and the world. That was our motivation and pretty much still is.
We have always been multihull fans and always will be not that there is anything wrong with monohulls as we have raced a few of those too! But we just gravitate back to multi's as that is what we cut our teeth on. We still race on beach cats whenever we can!
We've managed to grow by being simple with what we do and always enjoying what we do. We've had so many good hours on the water that we feel others need to discover sailings charms, especially when you can go faster than the wind!
In 1996 we embarked on our craziest sail to date. Sailing a Nacra 5.0 sport cat from Singapore to Phuket, Thailand and back. We were really touched to be recognised by His Majesty the King of Thailand for the effort as the King had sailed his OK dinghy across the Gulf of Thailand in his youth!
From there we pretty much progressed from adventure to adventure.
What we enjoy most! Trucking along on our 'vintage' Nacra 5.8. Tough as an old boot and still winning!
Where we're going...
Our long path through the smaller beach classes has served us well with lots and lots of 'seat time'. We've ended up in bigger boats purely due to evolution. We raced a Farr 40 at Kings Cup then a swan 80, all great fun. Apart from sailing the Nacra 5.0 Sport cat on the Phuket Epic, we helped deliver a Gunboat 60 from Singapore up to Xiamen, China - nice, very nice dodging a typhoon along the way. That trip was rewarded with a billiard-table smooth trip Singapore to Nha Trang, Vietnam on a Nauticat 44. THose are the perks that keep us going!
As we celebrate our 31st year in business we have many good things in store. We love working with some of the best brand names, this includes Selden hardware as well as ONE Sails. With those two companies onside we have managed to really compliment our boat range.
But perhaps what really sets us apart is that we are multihull enthusiasts through and through. We don't sell anything we haven't used ourselves. We have our own boats to enjoy and always will.
