Maxi Yachts 13.00

05/2007 –

Swedish Racer.

After the 11.00 and the 10.50, the latest addition to the Swedish Maxi Yachts range is the 13.00, presented at the Grand Pavois in La Rochelle and distributed in France by Arzal Nautique.

Award winning architect.

Pelle Peterson is the man behind the Maxi Yachts brand. The former sailor turned designer recently won the “Kunglia Tekniska Hôgskolan” award from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. For the 13.00, like her predecessors, the focus is on elegance and simple manoeuvrability, in line with the designer’s philosophy, which is that “the experience you are looking for as a yachtsman must be made accessible to you, with or without a crew”. The 2.25 metre draught with cast iron fin bolted to a lead/antimony bulb provides the lowest possible centre of gravity, making for a comfortable sailing experience. The 91 m² sail area (with a 42 m² jib with a 108% overlap) on a mast of over 16 metres is easy to handle when the wind picks up, and the slim hull speaks of excellent performance and stability at sea.

A stylish yacht.

The Maxi Yachts 13.00 does not rely only on its elegant lines – there are also plenty of features below deck to win over any sceptics. The woodwork is all mahogany varnished to a satin finish, with suede cushions. The 13.00 comes in a 3-cabin version, with a forward owner’s cabin with 2 berths, closet, drawers and armchair, and a simple, functional bathroom. The galley opposite the port side saloon area is fully equipped and all lockers are ventilated. The Swedish shipyard stands out from its competitors by the quality of all these tiny details, developed at its new production site on the Island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea, where the latest technologies are combined with a long-standing tradition of fine craftsmanship, giving birth to the 13.00.
