Maverick Yachts from Cape Town has chosen the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS) to enter the Australian market. The event is scheduled to run from 21-24 May 2015.
“It will be our first visit to the show and we are really looking forward to showcasing Maverick in Australia. We plan to meet with prospective brokers who will market our boats in Australia and are also looking forward to showing the Maverick to interested customers and the public,” explains co-founder and co-owner Deslynn Pretorius.
The builder has announced that its Maverick 440 will be on display at the show, following a circumnavigation of Australia.
“Our Maverick 440 Island Home, was launched mid-2014 and the owner, from Perth, crossed the Indian Ocean from Cape Town via Mauritius to Fremantle and is currently circumnavigating Australia. They will arrive just in time for the show,” says Pretorius. She adds that all its catamarans models can be customised. “The owner of Island Home played a major role in choosing his interior and his master cabin is absolutely fantastic!”
In addition, the builder has announced that the new Maverick 440 Executive catamaran is designed and built for easy handling and excellent performance.
The boat is certified to the European Recreational Craft directive category A (Ocean) and comes in two models: the Maverick 400 Custom and the Maverick 440 Custom, which can either be completed to a Standard or Executive Specification.
Both the Maverick 440 and Maverick 400 are ideal for private bluewater cruising. The yacht design is work of Phil Southwell, head of Southwell Yacht Design.
Maverick Yachts is a member of the Marine Industry Association of South Africa (MIASA) and the South African Boat Builders Export Council (SABBEX).
