Designed by Pelle Petersen and launched in 1977 the Maxi 84 proved to be a run away success, firmly establishing the reputation of the designer and the Maxi Yachts brand. Over the production run more than 1300 hulls were launched, selling throughout the world. Rating under the half tonner rules the Maxi 84 proved to be equally suited to comfortable family cruising as bashing round the cans in regattas.

The Maxi 84 SAORSA benefits from being extensively re-fitted between 2005-07 with works including stripping and re-varnishing the interior, replacement upholstery and overhauling of the engine. With her current owners since 2016 she is now reluctantly offered for sale with an inventory including highlights such as:
