The Maxi 1000 was a huge success by any measure with the builders producing around a 1000 examples over a 10 year production run. Designed by the champion Olympic sailor Pelle Petterson the Maxi 1000 was a performance cruiser which offered rewarding sailing performance with an easily handled fractional rig and self-tacking staysail. Below decks a range of finishes were offered to suit those who wished to use the boat for racing and those who wished to cruise in comfort.
