Maverick 380

From adverts see a new cat is coming out called the Maverick 380 designed by Phil Southwell and I am under the impression built by the same builders as the Knysna 44. Is this the same as the Island Spirit 37 but extended to 38?

“... Some of you might have heard that the manufacturers of the Island Spirit 401 catamaran, Fortuna Catamarans (Pty) Ltd, was recently placed in provisional liquidation by the High Court in Cape Town. Admiral Yachts has obtained the rights to manufacture the Island Spirit world wide and once the various legal issues have been dealt with by the liquidator and the Court, we look forward to including this product in our fleet. The acquisition of this brand will give Admiral Yachts a larger pool of clients and will increase the number of products we have on offer ...”
