The Maxi 1000 was designed for Nimbus by Pelle Peterson, and was introduced in 1996. With quite a large sail area on a relatively lightweight hull, plus a good ballast ratio, she is very much a performance boat, although she is also very easy to handle. The package is topped off with a very well finished and comfortable cruising interior in cherry joinery. The yacht illustrated here is fitted with non-standard wheel steering - a tiller being the norm. She was replaced with the slightly larger but similar styled Maxi 1100 in 1999
