The MAXI YACHTS Maxi 1300 was the legendary Swedish yacht designer Pelle Peterson’s penultimate project before retirement. Designing a boat that he could enjoy sailing single handed he also wished her to have a turn of speed which would see her passing other boats while cruising. A performance sailer to his core the Maxi 1300 he created fulfilled that brief perfectly.
Commissioned by her owners and launched new for the 2008 season MAXIMOOSE TOO was built with a focus on easy single or short-handed performance sailing. During the current ownership she has proven to be successful in local two-handed races with her owners also cruising predominately as a couple. She offers a spacious cockpit with full cockpit tent creating extra living space above decks. Below decks she offers 3 double cabins with a large bright saloon and two heads. Built to her owners specifications, her inventory includes highlights such as:

White topsides in original gelcoat

Teak laid decks and cockpit
Volvo Penta D2-40 40hp engine, comfortable cruising at 7kts+
Volvo Penta 3 blade bronze folding prop.

The MAXI YACHTS brand was owned by NIMBUS YACHTS/Sweden for more than a decade. The MAXI 1300, was designed by the famous Swedish designer Pelle Petterson; his final design for the brand under the Nimbus Yachts ownership. Approximately 50 of Maxi 1300 boats in total were built by NIMBUS YACHTS. This yacht is hull number 033, built in Sweden in 2007/08. The Maxi Yachts brand was then sold to Najad and after Najad became insolvent, the brand was then sold to new Polish owners. In the polish ownership Pelle Peterson completed one further design, the Maxi 1200 before retiring, after a lifetime association with the Maxi Yachts brand.
