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.mav­er­ick­ma­
