About this Maxi 1000


The Maxi 1000 is a well built family cruiser with sparkling performance.  This excellent example has the shallow draft keel with in-mast furling mainsail and self tacking jib, so really easy to sail and perfect for the shallow waters of the East Coast and beyond.  A lovely example, so don't hesitate to come and have a look.
