Delphine Lafitte, The Multihull Company's agent in France, organized a trip to the south of France where we were able to test sail each of the catamaran brands that we liked and this enabled us to very quickly decide on Catana as a fast, stylish cruising catamaran.

The Maverick 440, 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.
