I needed advice, handholding, more advice, and yet still more handholding. I was clueless about marine financing, insurance, flagging, and import documentation rules. I thought it was like purchasing a house. Not so. I can honestly say that without your help, guidance, hand holding, daily calls, and e-mails, I would not be a boat owner today.

The Maverick 400, the third production catamaran from Southwell, can best be described as a world class yacht designed to achieve maximum volume and comfortable. Its extra-wide hulls provide good load-carrying capacity with generous cabins and excellent visibility.
It offers the maximum volume and capacity for a boat of its size on the market today.
Some unique features include:
|||High bridge-deck clearance combined with voluminous bows make for a dry, go-anywhere vessel;|
|||The extra-width and height, together with the large windows give the visual effect of a much larger boat;|
|||The superb interior has a choice of layouts, offering comfortable sleeping arrangements for six people in three cabins with a truly massive owner's suite to starboard, which includes "his and hers" basins and both a shower and bath; or up to eight people in four luxury cabins with heads and showers in each hull;|
|||Deck saloon with wrap-around windows encloses a large galley, saloon, nav-station and breakfast nook, opening up onto the huge cockpit via sliding glass doors and windows, to create an extensive living area;|
|||Hidden mood-lighting in the designer saloon with dedicated reading lights;|
|||Large-screen monitor for entertainment and instrument display.|
|||Large, well equipped galley for the gourmet chef that is part of the living space;|
|||Large, front opening fridge and drawer freezer with optional extra drawer fridge or freezer;|
|||Optional dish-washer and washing machine forward of galley keeps you outdoors;|
|||Covered cockpit with canvas enclosures provides a sociable area even in inclement weather;|
|||Protected helm position with double seat;|
|||Cockpit seating with removable table and sun-hammock aft;|
|||Most lines lead aft to enable short-handed sailing so that the yacht can be sailed, reefed and sails stowed without the helmsman or crew ever leaving the cockpit;|
|||Generous fuel, water and black water tanks;|
|||Separate, large engine rooms aft with overhead access hatch for easy maintenance;|
|||Bow and stern 'dolphin-watcher' seats;|
|||Game fishing position with sea access and gas barbeque to supplement fresh food on voyages;|
These are stand up people, who make a stand up product. I would buy from them again in a heartbeat.
