Thoughts on the Maxi 100

I would love the thoughts on a 1984 Maxi 100 that I viewed this weekend in the UK. It looked quite tidy but hasn't been sailed in a while as the owner is away and keen to sell. I didn't see anything that would put me off going to the next stage but I just wanted some thoughts on the boat itself from previous owners or experienced sailors. I'm an inexperienced sailor but felt this boat would be ideal for my skill set (limited). Is there anything I should be looking for, perhaps issues inherent in this boat....any advise would be great

Re: Thoughts on the Maxi 100

It’s pretty short on sail area, I don’t see it performing acceptably in light air and you will regularly resort to motoring.

For all of your celestial navigation questions:
A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground no one would think to try and refloat it.
