SUZUKI MARINE MAUN, BOTSWANA

Suzuki Marine is represented by Aliboats in Maun. Aliboats is a manufacturer of aluminium boats which evolved in Northern Botswana over 25 years ago to service the tourist industry. The parameters required were for a practical workboat to carry big loads through shallow waters over long distances with as light a fuel consumption as possible. The aesthetics of the boats was a secondary consideration. The finish and styling of our current range of hulls is as important to us as all the other design parameters.

Our aluminium hulls are all built out of Marine grade aluminium alloy 2 mm to 20 mm thick (depending on the use of the hull) to give a lightweight, durable boat with a very high load capacity on lower horsepower and fuel consumption. Aluminium is the chosen material because of the increased usable space in the boat relative to other materials. A well-designed aluminium hull has almost double the useful space of a comparable size fibreglass boat.

Aliboats is also the Authorized Suzuki Marine dealer based in Maun and we supply boat packages powered by the Ultimate outboard, Suzuki, and offer aftersales service and Suzuki Genuine Spare Parts.

YELD CAT MARINE

The roots of Yeld Cat Marine began in 1970 with the Zulucat, designed and built by Peter Yeld as a platform for spearfishing and game fishing off the coast of Zululand and Mozambique.

This boat was built with the intention of personal use but as demand grew production for customers began at the St. Lucia Garage. Further development was 17.6′ Yeldcat and 15.6′ Vidalcat in the 1980’s. The 18.6′ and 19′ Yeldcat were manufactured in the 1990’s and eventually led to the 21′ in 2000. These were built in Monzi and thus became Monzi Boat Builders.

Current models comprise of the 16′ which supersedes the dated 15.6′ Vidalcat. The other two models are the 17′ and 21′ Yeldcat, all of which are available in the forward and centre console versions.

In 2010 Peter’s sons, namely Mark, Shaun & Craig Yeld officially took over the business and formed the new name of Yeld Cat Marine cc.
