Maxus 35: Redefining Sport Cruiser Expectations with Northman Shipyard

Northman Shipyard has been building yachts over 33 feet since 2007. The inaugural yacht in this category, the Maxus 33, debuted in 2007, marking the inception of a line that has since garnered acclaim within the sailing community. Following its introduction, the Maxus 33 underwent a comprehensive redesign in 2011, resulting in the rebranded Maxus 33.1RS. In a strategic departure from previous designs, Northman Shipyard recently unveiled its latest innovation, the Maxus 35, marking a significant advancement in the cruiser segment.

Distinguished by its distinctive features and cruiser identity, the Maxus 35 embodies a fusion of contemporary design elements and enduring functionality. Notable highlights include expansive interiors, illuminated cabin spaces, concealed rigging mechanisms, dual steering systems, and a sleek, modern hull profile, all of which contribute to its commanding presence on the water.

Designed by the D&S Yacht Design office, comprising Jacek Daszkiewicz and Krzysztof Smaga, the Maxus 35 exhibits a distinctive hull configuration characterized by a pronounced upturned aft section and an elevated bow. This unique design imparts a heightened freeboard, particularly prominent at the bow, accentuating the vessel’s overall aesthetic appeal. Additionally, the elevated cabin superstructure, extending forward with a continuous window strip reminiscent of a deck saloon yacht, further distinguishes the Maxus 35’s design language, albeit catering to individual tastes with its bold and assertive demeanor.

The Maxus 35 offers versatility in keel configurations, with options for long and short L-shape keels, as well as alternative chine keels facilitating dry berthing and land storage. Crafted meticulously by hand using GRP materials, the hulls and decks exemplify Northman Shipyard’s commitment to quality craftsmanship and enduring durability. The mast placement, featuring two spreaders and shrouds affixed directly to the hull exterior, contributes to the vessel’s balanced performance characteristics, with a focus on sail handling and maneuverability.

Despite its emphasis on sport cruising comfort, the Maxus 35 does not compromise on interior amenities, offering configurations with two or three cabins, complemented by a dedicated shower cabin in the two-cabin layout. The interior exudes modernity, bathed in natural light, evoking a sense of tranquility and sophistication. Equipped with a fully functional kitchenette boasting induction hob, refrigerator, sink, and ample storage provisions, the Maxus 35 caters to discerning sailors seeking personalized luxury experiences.
