Maxi yachts are boats designed for racing. At least 22 metres (75 feet) in length, Maxis cost millions of dollars to design, engineer and build and every Maxi has a racing history worth discovering. Taking a cruise on a Maxi is a sure way to experience a true Maxi's combination of speed, size and power. The Whitsundays is the only place to experience an overnight sailing vacation on a Maxi yacht. Maxis encourage socializing and lots of action and are geared towards guests seeking an exciting and truly unique collection of experiences. Condor is everything you would want in a Maxi and more, so come soar the turquoise waters with this "bird of the sea".
That means multiple wins in the Sydney to Hobart, in the Fastnet, the Bermuda races and the World Maxi Championship and more. She is still the only maxi to do this. Condor still races, flying over the waves during Hamilton Island Race Week. She is fast, sleek, and offers a true Maxi racer experience. So, do you feel like you could take on this thoroughbred, maybe even help hoist a sail, grind a winch, or take the wheel? Hop aboard!
