Though not well known in the US, Maxi has a great reputation in Europe for building a very solid boat. The company 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!

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...

Price significantly reduced, owner motivated and offers encouraged.
