Team Maverick has announced a partnership deal in collaboration with the GREAT Britain campaign. The agreement will see Team Maverick’s Infiniti 46R proudly representing Great Britain with prominent Union Jack designs on the yachts’ sails and crew kit at prestigious yacht racing events around the globe. Drawing attention with their radically innovative design yacht Maverick will provide an ideal platform to carry the British campaign message to global audiences.

The GREAT Britain campaign showcases the best of what the British nation has to offer, to inspire the world and encourage people to visit, invest, do business and study in the UK. It is the UK government’s most ambitious international campaign ever, uniting the efforts of the public and private sector to generate jobs and growth for Britain.

Conrad Bird CBE, Director, GREAT Britain campaign stated: “I’m delighted that from today Sailing Team Maverick will be flying the flag for Britain around the world. Designed in the UK with the most advanced engineering and precision craftsmanship, this yacht combines Britain’s proud sailing history with revolutionary technology and will serve to promote Britain’s strengths to over 30 countries during her 2018 race schedule.”

Team Maverick have collaborated with the GREAT Britain campaign to wave the flag for British industry using their technically innovative racing yacht as a platform for spreading the message around the globe. Maverick tends to draw attention during events as the only boat of its kind to incorporate unique Dynamic Stability System (DSS) foiling technology on a 46 ft. yacht, clearly visible by the unapologetically different bright orange foils protruding from the side of the hull. On the start line Maverick is often one of the smaller yachts in the line-up and yet with a first in class and second overall in the RORC 2016 Transatlantic race, along with a number of respectable results from events such as the Rolex Middle Sea Race and Palermo Montecarlo, it is clear this little yacht has a lot to say.

With great ambitions themselves Team Maverick plan to meet more open-minded businesses through this partnership, businesses that may also look to invest in the team as a commercial platform for growth.

This agreement will be made official as Team Maverick compete in this years’ 2018 Royal Ocean Racing Club Caribbean 600, a 600 nautical mile offshore yacht race which will see yacht Maverick and crew proudly displaying the Union Jack flag for the first time to this international fleet of competitors and event followers.
