Mark has been around boats and water all his life and has been a passionate multihull sailor since 1987 when he bought a Heavenly Twins to enjoy sailing with his young family. Mark joined the Heavenly Twins association, was appointed as Commodore for 7 years and then Cruising Secretary of the Multihull Owners Cruising and Racing Association for a further 8 years.
Mark has owned catamarans and trimarans from 8m to 16m and has cruised extensively in North European waters in UK, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and Poland but has also sailed in beautiful sailing grounds further afield including Croatia, Portugal, Belize, Antigua, The Grenadines, Tahiti, and Auckland. Although primarily a cruising sailor, Mark’s sailing experience also includes 2 class wins in the Round the Island race on different boats.
Mark Jarvis has been with Multihull World (MHW) since 2003 and Managing Director since 2010. In that time Mark has been the principle sail tester for the boats that MHW sell and so he has sailed almost every brand in production. This, combined with his engineering degree, often allows him an insight into the faults and features of the multihulls sold by MHW and allows him to advise buyers on how each model suits their intended sailing agenda.
Mark has a Master’s degree in Engineering from Cranfield, an RYA Yachtmaster qualification and is an accredited ABYA Yacht Broker.
