Maverick secures deal with Dutch Investment partner
29 February 2012

Maverick Catamarans have successfully completed an equity deal with a Dutch investment partner. The deal consists of two aspects; investment capital and broadening of the management team. The initial capital injection opens the strategic partnership between Maverick and the Dutch private equity partner, with further capital investments to be made.

Maverick's Founder, Rudi Pretorius

"This strategic partnership opens an exciting new chapter for Maverick Catamarans. After launching the Maverick 400 in 2009, we won the ‘South African Boat of the Year Award' two years in a row yet we have had limited exposure outside of South Africa. Now it is time to showcase our blue water cruising catamaran internationally. Our partner brings fresh capital into the business and also knowledge & experience to enable us to further access global markets and provide a higher level of service internationally.

The Dutch have an amazing maritime history from the days of early exploring and today they remain one of the top boat building nations in the world. We are proud to be working with our Dutch partner and see great benefits in bringing our local manufacturing capabilities to global markets together."
