General Comments by vendor
We've had our share in Maximus
since 2001 and bought it from the yard, and we've had lots of happy
holidays on Maximus. Being a self run group the costs are low, and
we do some of our own maintenance as well.
Maximus is well looked after, and when we need to replace something we have the funds to do so without needing to make an extra charge.
Last year we had a new engine, the old one was still running at 17,000 hours (thanks in no small measure to 250 hr oil changes) but a ring had gone, and we felt it had done all we could ask of it.
The sides have been painted, and the year before the floor was replaced. It's a good group of owners, and as we don't have a management company, we work together, which I think makes people care more for the boat.
We are down sizing our share as the kids are now teenagers and really don't like 2 weeks with no or poor internet, but we intend to buy a half share from one of the other owners and will be cruising on Maximus for years to come.
My share guarantees me the two full weeks that make up the Easter school holiday break each year. BUT the other two weeks I get are dealt with by one of the committee. Everyone puts in what they would like, and he tries to give everyone what they ask for, and people are generally reasonable about accepting his decision. But no share has any priority over any other in that.
(N.B. There is one share which is guaranteed the October half term week, so that week is never available to me.)
