Maverick was a Texan stock man who defied convention by not branding his cattle.  Having chosen to build a monohull which in many ways defies convention the name "Maverick" seemed to stick, and the bull motif apt.

Our home is St Peter Port, Guernsey at Lat 49deg 27min (49.45 deg).  So unlike the original Maverick we decided to brand ourselves with the number 49 and to proudly fly the Guernsey flag as we travel the globe.

So for us Maverick is about being unorthodox, original, trendsetting and independent whilst acknowledging that even the most free spirit has a home.
