MAVERICK POWER CATS
Power cat specialist Maverick Marine has joined forces with fellow Wellingtonbased company Fraser Fire & Rescue to manufacture a growing range of aluminium catamarans.
Maverick director David Mclellan says the deal with Fraser will give Maverick access to world-class engineering and manufacturing capabilities. Fraser Fire & Rescue is part of the Fraser Engineering Group, the southern hemisphere’s largest independent manufacturer of fire and rescue appliances.
Fraser Fire & Rescue Director Martin Simpson says that they are looking forward to leveraging their extensive engineering, CNC and manufacturing capabilities into the marine sector with Maverick. Simpson also believes that there is significant opportunity for combining their fire and rescue appliance technologies with Maverick catamaran hulls to produce high performance rescue and emergency craft.
Since opening in 2014 Maverick has sold boats in USA and Australia, as well as New Zealand. Mclellan believes it’s vital to achieve the highest possible levels of quality in design and manufacturing.
“We plan to bring larger, more powerful power cats to market,” he says. www.maverickmarine.co.nz www.fraser.org.nz
