Well, this is confusing. Where do you get your information? From the Admiral Yacht website:
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.
