Maverick Costa Rica recently announced that it has reached an agreement to purchase Costa Rica Dreams Sport Fishing, a popular charter fishing operation which is also based in Los Sueños Resort and Marina in Costa Rica. The purchase includes the five sportfishermen owned by Costa Rica Dreams, all of which have undergone recent upgrades. The arrangement should give the company greater flexibility in offering charter packages to their clients, as well as an extended lineup of boats from which to choose.
According to Larry Drivon, CEO of Maverick Costa Rica, “Costa Rica Dreams has been in business since 1989 and owners Rich and Diana Roberts have done an amazing job taking care of their clients and building a legacy. We are excited about this acquisition and will continue to operate the company in the same manner as it is now.”
Rich Roberts, owner of Costa Rica Dreams, echoed Drivon’s sentiments. “We are proud of what we have accomplished,” he says. “We believe Maverick is the perfect entity to take over what we have worked so hard to build. Their business is unique in the fishing world, as they are both a local builder of custom yachts as well as a charter operation.
Maverick Costa Rica currently builds three models of custom, cold-molded sportfishermen from 36 to 50 feet in length and also operates a fleet of six charter boats (five in Los Sueños and one in Marina Pez Vela, Quepos, Costa Rica), which are collectively known as the “Fly boats.”
