MAIA, a Pacific 38 in Langkawi

(Langkawi, Malaysia)

'MAIA' is a great little sailing vessel, 38 ft (11,6 meters) for 7 tons built in fiberglass. She is a Pacific 38 built in New Zealand in 1976 by Smith Boatyards in Whangarei.

She is a perfect boat for a solo sailor or a couple.

We've had a perfect sailing trip with her around the Pacific and SE Asia for the last 2 years but we need to come back to Europe in the next months, so that's why we are looking for a new owner for 'Maia'.

Everything is easy and simple on board, perfect for a couple or a solo sailor. We did a huge refit in 2017, a lot of equipments are new, the interior is clean and neat, new paint on the deck and cockpit, new flooring inside, etc...

She is a perfect liveaboard boat and she is also ready for longer passages and oceans crossing.
