Associate Broker - Rudi Pretorius

Rudi Pretorius first began sailing windsurfers and Hobie Cats back in the 80ís, but only after graduating with a Masters Degree in Business did he acquire his first yacht. This led to the whole family becoming involved in sailing and the upward progression into catamarans ensued. Rudi has owned three yachts of which two have been catamarans, the last one being a new build. This then evolved into the founding of his own yacht company, Maverick Yachts.

Maverick Yachts partnered with The Multihull Company who were appointed as the exclusive agents in the USA. Both Phillip Berman and Alexis de Boucaud visited South Africa and from there the relationship grew. The natural consequence of this was for Rudi to partner with The Multihull Company.

Rudi has built 24 yachts, of which 17 have been catamarans. He serves on the board of the South African Boat Builders Export Council. His technical knowledge and insight into the marine industry is a great asset.

Rudi remains at the helm of Maverick Yachts, but now adds value to both companies in taking this next step. Yacht owners wishing to buy or sell their yachts are welcome to contact Rudi. In so doing they have the advantage of The Multihull Company's international exposure for the listing of their boats or tapping into the large pool of already listed boats.

To contact Rudi, you can reach him by email at or by telephone in Cape Town at +27 21 5527752, or on his cell phone at +27 83 2693626.
