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.
