Greetings from all of us at Cruiser Cats!
We are amazed at how quickly this year has gone so far and we find ourselves already half way through May! Time flies when you having fun and we certainly are in the Cruiser Cats factory. After attending the Miami and Palm Beach International Boat Shows earlier this year, which were both very successful for us and having sold the Havana 40 Fly bridge, we are also happy to report that the factory has been extremely busy and that our new Havana 42 Powercat is coming along well.
The hull, deck and interior modules have all been laid up. The fly bridge and hard top bimini moulds are almost ready to lay up and last week our container with our USA purchases arrived with all our navigation equipment, electronics, other equipment and flooring. Our woodwork department is making excellent progress on all the interior finishing, so we are very excited to see this new Powercat launched later this year. If all goes well, we are aiming to have the new Havana 42 Powercat at the US Fall Boat Shows in October 2014
Currently we are also looking forward to attending the Korea International Boat Show from 12 – 15 June 2014! This is a first for Cruiser Cats, and time to explore new markets in the East. We will be exhibiting our products as part of the South African National Pavilion in Korea, at the KINTEX exhibition centre in Goyang City, South Korea. We hope to meet some prospective buyers and look forward to introducing our powercats to them. We are excited to get some feedback on our boats from this show.
Later in this year, we look forward to seeing you all at the United States Powerboat Show and Fort Lauderdale International Boat Shows in October 2014.
We are also pleased to announce that we received our Accreditation Status from SABBEX early this year. This entails being audited by a professional marine surveyor and covers all aspects from construction, production, materials, pricing and financials. It ensures that all South African Boat Builders Export Council (SABBEX) members are building their boats according to the highest international standards and adhering to good business ethics at all times therefore offering the best to prospective clients.
