Maverick Boat Company, out of Ft. Pierce, Florida, has introduced new Maverick and Pathfinder models and the triple-outboard version of its Cobia 344 CC, which debuted at the 2014 Miami International Boat Show. The company assembled boating and fishing editors at the Hutchinson Island Marriott July 22-23 for the preview.
The 34-foot, 4-inch stepped-hull Cobia sported three Yamaha F300s. The new 17-foot, 8-inch Maverick 17 HPX-S featured an F70, and the 22-foot, 2-inch Pathfinder 2200 TRS ran with Yamaha’s new four-cylinder F200. Maverick also brought its 18 HPX-S, a Pathfinder 2600 HPS with a new tower, a Cobia 296 CC and a Cobia 344 CC with twin outboards.
Representatives from Yamaha, JL Marine (Power-Pole), Raymarine, Costa Sunglasses, Shimano, MotorGuide and Gem Products also shared information about their latest products.
To get a better feel for the boats, editors fished offshore and inshore while testing the new models. For a glimpse at some of the activity and the new rides, check out the video below. (Still photos of fishing by Marc Vaughn.):
