Rudolf Jonker


Rudolf Jonker was formerly a naval architect at Dean Catamarans. After Dean closed its doors, Phoenix Marine, a major South African manufacturer in the composites fabrication and shipyard sector bought the rights to the plans of the Dean 5000 and asked Jonker to design a completely new boat within the existing lines: the Xquisite X5. He has his own design team at Phoenix Marine and has redesigned a large part of the original boat. The waterline, the bows, the interior layout, the build technique and the layout plans are all new.
