While these high quality Swedish built yachts are almost unknown in the U.S., they're coveted in Europe for their pleasing lines and high-end fit and finish. They're also very capable ocean-going vessels--at least one Maxi 108 that we know of completed a circumnavigation.
Though not well known in the US, Maxi was founded in the early 1970s and is still building sophisticated performance-oriented sail boats today; this is a rare opportunity to see one for yourself. They are exactly what you would expect from vessels designed and built in Sweden: clean and understated, with no-nonsense lines and a simple elegance down below with only the best components used throughout.
The Maxi 108 is an interesting "3/4 aft" cockpit configuration--not quite aft, not quite center, there are nevertheless two companionways leading below. This isn't an unusual design for larger boats (all the Hallberg-Rasseys, also built in Sweden, are configured like this), but is hard to pull off on a 36 footer! Also note that there are "catbird seats" built in to the stainless steel cockpit pulpit; these are common now but were unheard of in 1983.
Maxi built almost 200 of the 108s and this particular example is in EXCELLANT condition; she shows much newer than her actual age. If you're in the market for a classic European boat built largely by hand and showing bristol, Maxi is a must-see.
Also note she's lying in a potentially transferable Sausalito Yacht Harbor slip; there's a waiting list to get into the marina here so this is a material benefit if you're able to take advantage...
