Honda Marine have announced the expansion of their boatbuilder alliance portfolio with the addition of Dutch boat manufacturers Maxima Boats. Maxima produce a range of classic-style sloops from 4.84m to 7.50m suitable for inland waterways or for use as tenders. With an entry-level cost of £9,315 (inc. VAT) for a 4.85m boat powered by a Honda BF8 outboard, Maxima’s aim is to offer a premium package at an affordable price.

Steve Morris, Head of Power Products at Honda (UK), commented: ‘We are delighted to welcome Maxima to the Honda family. The Maxima range not only offers an appealing entry-level cost, it fits perfectly with our premium-brand values and opens up our marine offering to customers who live further inland and closer to rivers, lakes and canals than the coast.’

Managing director of Maxima Boats Leendert Klop remarked: ‘Honda Marine were a natural choice for us as we share several key brand values including heritage, reliability, quality and performance. I very much look forward to seeing this partnership flourish.’
