Cruising cat specialists Maverick Yachts have landed two new orders in one week on the back of strong showings at both the Annopolis and Cape Town boat shows, the International Boatbuilding Industry News (IBI) reports.
Maverick managing director Rudi Pretorius told IBI the company now had a full order book up until 2018, buoyed by the success of its new 43-ft Maverick 440 model which was on display at both the Annapolis and Cape Town boat shows. “Both shows were very successful and attracted many future prospects,” Pretorius said.
Cape Town-based Maverick Yachts is one of the stalwarts in the cruising cat manufacturing industry, where South Africa maintains a strong global presence with an estimated 30 percent market share. The company was founded by sailors Rudi and Deslynn Pretorius.
