Boat Details

About This Boat

Rare as winning lotto ticket, this type of cat does not show up very often especially in this kind of condition! This is a must see and is definitely not an average catamaran sailboat and cannot be compared with other similar boats available. 

The MAXIM 57 is a very purposeful seagoing vessel and with a vast amount of usable space on board both inside and out for a boat this size.

The control line arrangement on the Maxim 57 makes it easy to sail shorthanded due to the control lines leading back to the cockpit. Extra halyards were installed for reassurance and safety and the boat features ample flat deck space for ease of maneuverability while underway. 

The MAXIM 57 hull also offers a far greater range, making long distance cruising a breeze. Her 500 liter capacity will give her a range of over 700 nm on motors alone! Explore those unreachable Islands that many yachts would not dare to tread.  Of course the shallow draft enables you to get on the other side of the reef nicely nosed up against the beach.

The owner has completely re-fitted her at a cost of over $150,000 with new sails, new standing rigging, new running rigging, rebuilt fridge freezers, new chargers, rebuilt air conditioning, rebuilt watermaker, serviced engines and generators, serviced winches, new oven stove top and more to make her really special.
