It will be evident upon inspection that MAYA is not an ordinary yacht. She was custom built for the knowledgeable owners of Deerfoot International by Walsteds, one of the finest yards in Europe. She was designed by Steve Dashew, engineered and built to exact specifications to be a true, independent offshore cruiser, easily handled by two people. The dependable, easily maintained systems were engineered into an exceptionally strong, yet aesthetically pleasing hull. The resulting yacht is a head turner wherever she goes and is a joy to sail.
She is equally comfortable in northern climates, with her all-weather pilothouse, and in the tropics, with vast areas of opening hatches, dorades and air conditioning. MAYA cruises easily at 8.5 - 10 knots and can regularly cover over two hundred nautical miles per day. She is a "must-see" for anyone considering a 60' - 80' cruising sailboat.
