Maxi - 1000

Yachts from the Maxi yard come with typical Swedish quality. Strongly built and beautifully finished, the Maxi 1000 is the definition of a performance cruiser and can be both raced and cruised with equal success.

MISTRAL VIII has had one fastidious owner from new who lightly raced her in her first couple of seasons. She has a full compliment of sails in excellent condition, her standing rigging has been replaced and her engine completely refurbished.....this does not even scratch the surface in describing the recent work which has been carried out.

She is ready to be sailed away and is well worth viewing.
