Maverick Yachts are hand-crafted from laurel blanco, a Costa Rican hardwood that is perfect for this application, with teak and mahogany trim. Only the finest materials are used, from West System epoxies to Garmin electronics and more. Capt. Daniel Espinoza, the famed longtime skipper of Spanish Fly, has turned over the wheel to a younger apprentice and is now in charge of the factory's production. Having someone as knowledgeable as Espinoza running the operation guarantees that a fishing captain will have input on each build. His fingerprints are literally all over each boat, and the bluewater pedigree of each model is without dispute.
