Aqua Xtremes Receives CE Mark Approval for XBoard

RENO, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2006 -- Encompass Holdings, Inc. (OTC BB: ECMH), today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Aqua Xtremes, an innovative power sports company, received the CE Mark approval for the recently launched Xboard jet powered personal water craft. This regulatory milestone clears the way for Aqua Xtremes to commercialize and further develop its distribution in the power sports marketplace in Europe.

"With this new CE mark approval for Aqua Xtremes' Xboard, we look to develop and expand our reach into the growing market segment of power sports. Our long-term strategy includes growth and market development in Europe," commented Art Robins, Chief Executive Officer.

The European Council refers to the CE Marking of products as a "passport" which can allow a manufacturer to freely circulate their products within the European marketplace. The marking applies only to products regulated by the European Commission health, safety and environmental protection legislation. This is estimated to include more than 50% of the goods currently exported from the U.S. to Europe, including all recreational craft.
