Maki Link

I'm sure Maki will reply but in the mean time here's the link to their site. Many nice bits of info on the boat and their impressions.

I looked at a Maxim last winter in Florida and was very impressed with it. It had some good space to it, but laked headroom for my 6'4" frame. Good luck on your search,

I had a look at a Maxim in Croatia last weekend and so far it looked good and solid. of course i can not say anything about quality.

How high is their bridge deck off the water. In the photos it's hard to tell, but doesn't look like it has as much as I do.

Do these 'slam' a lot?
