Jaguar Powerboats signs with Martin Flory

Publish date:

Semicustom builder Jaguar Powerboats inked a deal with marine PR firm Martin Flory group to promote their line of catamarans from 27 to 47 feet.

Jaguar president John Clarke has powerboat racing and construction in his blood. His father founded Jaguar in 1985 and went on to design, build and race a number of national and world titles and world speed records.


Last year’s premier of the J43 — equipped with twin 627-hp Seven Marine outboards — is reportedly capable of running at speeds over 90 mph. As a semicustiom builder, all of their vessels including the J43 can be rigged to fish or cruise with a variety of power options.

"The J43 is a new idea in a marketplace that seldom sees bold innovation," said Martin Flory Group general manager Kelly Flory in a statement. "Jaguar Powerboats is setting the bar in the performance catamaran segment."
