ALEX BALL

TMG General Manager

Sydney born and Pittwater raised, Alex spent his childhood exploring the waterways of Sydney and Broken Bay and has led to a love for life on the water.

Alex has spent his professional life in the automotive industry. Representing some of the world’s best brands, he was naturally drawn to Lagoon!

“To represent the worlds best manufacturer of catamarans is a humbling honour. The build quality, attention to detail and consideration that has gone into the layout, it’s clear they have been designed (and built) by a team with vast experience.”

Alex has 4 young children which he looks forward to introducing to sailing.

“Having grown up on-board a very old, timber yacht, I am blown away by the volume of the Lagoon range. That, added with the cruising performance makes the Lagoon the ultimate home away from home… something that I would have loved all those years ago!”

“Seeing all aspects of the sport from cruising to racing to moving from country to country, for me really drove home how multi-faceted it is as an activity,” says John. Read more

JOE FOX

Sales and Service Support

Joe Fox is uniquely positioned to be in Service and Support at TMG. Growing up sailing dinghies and small catamarans, his love of the water and the marine industry saw him complete a degree in Navigation and Maritime Science at Plymouth University.

He has worked around the Mediterranean and the Caribbean for many years as a skipper on catamarans – week long charters in Croatia, Greece and Bermuda were an incredible way to live out his passion.

A non-seasonal, shore-based role and an Australian partner lead to a move down under for Joe, and TMG now benefits from his professionalism, extensive sailing experience and strong customer service ethic.

Joe has skippered many a Lagoon in his time, his knowledge of the brand a great advantage for TMG’s clients.

“With a particular interest in catamarans becoming involved with The Multihull Group was a dream come true. I love sharing my passion with others wanting to get into cruising the globe on luxury cats.”

More recently he and his wife lived aboard their own cat for 2 years travelling up the East Coast from Sydney to the Whitsundays.

“Having sailed cats myself and having a real passion for these boats, I have a great appreciation for the quality, finish and layout Lagoons and the rest of the TMG range has to offer. I am thrilled to be working with such a great brand,” says Clinton.
