A rare Maxi 100PS. SHE HAS TO GO SO SOMEONE WILL GET A BARGAIN. Ragtime of Rhu is a 34 ft Swedish sloop built in 1982. The hull is in good condition as is the 25 hp Volvo Penta engine (which is housed inside the table in the saloon and is running nicely – see photo). The teak interior has just been sanded and varnished and is looking good. The saloon is spacious enough for entertaining. The cockpit which seats up to 8 people is perfect for sailing in Scotland especially single-handed. A new cockpit canvas and sunroof has just been fitted and is ideal for bad weather.

She has been set up with TWIN FORESTAYS/GENOAS (one is a self-tacker) and the deck has the self-tacking mechanism installed with all lines going into the cockpit. She has 3 cabins, 1 toilet. She can sleep up to 7.

The price has been reduced from £20,950 to £17750 or ONO. You can go here to see valuations for the same boat http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/priceguide.php
You will find it hard to source a Maxi 100Ps as there are so few about. There are a few Maxi 95s but they don’t have the sugar-scoop rear step, the bowsprit or the cabin. (great for foul weather).

She is out of the water at Barcaldine Marine near Oban, Scotland should you wish to view her. Please contact me to arrange as I am approx 1 to 2 hours drive away dependent upon traffic.
Work that needs done. A few of the perspex windows have cracks. circa £40 each.  She has just been antifouled but a  touch of paint on the topsides will make her look good again. Service the engine (the engine has only done 6 hours since her last service) the electrics and she will be good to go into the water. She had standing rigging replaced approx 6 years ago.
Here are some youtube links that have Maxi 95/100s videos so you can see more of this similiar model.

Lymington Rally – June 2016

The Lymington Rally saw a good turnout of maxis on a lovely sunny afternoon. 11 Maxis were represented with 27 people attending.

Following their arrival, many of the group enjoyed the afternoon activity of a guided walk along the quay, finishing up at the Royal Lymington Club. Local guide Vivien and her team who led the walk, regaled us with stories of salt, smuggling and other curiosities of the town, providing a fascinating insight to the history of seafaring in the locality.


Following the walk, everyone enjoyed the welcome refreshments and nibbles on the pontoon provided by hosts, Carolyn and Julian, and all enjoyed the opportunity to catch up with familiar faces as well as welcome new friends.   As the sun began to dip to the horizon, we all wandered along to the Royal Lymington Club where we were treated to a feast of a dinner!

Bembridge Rally Report – 8th, 9th &10th May 2016

Following a very enjoyable and well attended mid-summer, mid-week rally to Bembridge last year, it was decided to repeat the event. With a rally already arranged for June, and the ‘tide factor’ for Bembridge to consider, mid-week did not work so a longer rally starting on Sunday 8th with a dinner on Monday 9th  at Brading Haven Yacht Club was organised to enable more people to attend, with an option to stay on until Wednesday 10th. Sunday was glorious; sunshine and a good wind meant a very enjoyable sail to Bembridge. Nine boats, ten if Moonshine Blues for lunch is included, attended on Sunday. Catering options are limited on Sunday nights so Pam & Andy on Ariam and Lorraine & Richard on Suive cooked a main course to follow the pontoon drinks & canapes and everyone else contributed to the meal by bringing desserts, cheese and chocolates, which were consumed by 17 of us on Suive!   A huge thank you to the Verdons for their hospitality on Ariam and to everyone for their contributions. It was great to meet newcomers Gill & Jeremy Thallon on Sunfish and ‘returners’ Jean & Paul Clark on Freebird. Andy Horwood took the ‘official’ photo for posterity.

On Monday, Asante and Ariam left and Maxima and Leda of Hamble arrived. The weather was not so good on Monday but we all enjoyed the day – walking, cycling, touring IOW by bus and sailing on Baldur, courtesy of William Avery. In the evening we gathered for another pontoon party to welcome the new arrivals, before taking the water taxi to Brading Haven Yacht Club, which opened specially for us, for dinner.  Once again we were well looked after.

Tuesday was foggy at sea but Baldur, Leda, Out of the Blue and Sunfish set off for home whilst Freebird, Maxima, Neroli, Suive and Walk of Life stayed on for another day. All reached their home berth safely.

The rally was a great success and enjoyed by all. 11 yachts (12 if Moonshine Blues is included) attended. Although MOA’s rallies are usually a weekend event, it seems there is a place for events during the week.
