Hello Maxum Owners Clun forum,
I am here today on behalf of my father due to him not being to computer savvy and thought I would try to help him out. As you can see from the title he's retired and looking to spend a lot of his newly found free time on a boat, day trips and weekends away. His mother and father used to own a boat back in the day and he want's to go back to that chilled out life. This also means he knows a few bits on maintenance, sailing etc.
When we were looking online for a boat he came across a 2003 Maxum powercruiser that he liked the look of and the specs sound pretty awesome. But the truth is we don't know a great deal about modern boats and would love your guy's input to help us make a decision.
Price $40,000 OBO
