Maxi Yachts, a historic Swedish fast cruiser shipyard that was headed by Pelle Peterson, an Olympian and designer also well known in the Mediterranean, has joined the Delphia Yachts group, which is profoundly renewing its entire range.
PETTERSON & CASTRO, WHAT A PAIR
After the Maxi 1300, blue water cruising presented in 2014, it is now the turn of the Maxi 1200, twelve meters of design and technology. Born from the pencil of Pelle Petterson with the support of Tony Castro, who designed the interior, it is a fast cruiser with attention to every detail. The construction is made with extensive use of carbon fibers in the reinforcement of structural elements, shroud attachments, keel, bow, and rudder.
CENTRAL WINCH IN THE COCKPIT
The double-steering cockpit features three winches; on the central one the mainsail sheet is sent back with a turret positioned on the teak table with folding doors, while from the two side ones the genoa sheets can be operated, easily reached by the helmsman.
The deckhouse is also revised from previous models: the lines are softer and it can be used as a sunbathing area. Elegant windows allow sunlight to filter in while the two flush skylights in the dinette allow air exchange along with the one forward of the mast.
A BOAT FOR UPWIND
Lean and streamlined bow sections, the adoption of aft edges and long genoa rails suggest very tight upwind angles and good upwind performance.
The interiors complete the feeling of a boat made with an eye to the needs of Mediterranean clients: bright and well ventilated, they are made warm by a skillful and modern use of woods and enhanced by lacquered surfaces. The layout includes two cabins and a bathroom of significant size (a three-cabin version is also planned). Special attention is paid to the kitchen, where there is no shortage of unique details such as a removable extractor hood, and to the dinette, which is a real living room.
Thelist price for the 2-cabin version is 178,000 euros + VAT, while the 3-cabin version costs 222,640 euros + VAT. http://www.delphia-yachts.it/maxi.html
