The Maia 24 is a true displacement hull form that will have a gentle motion in most sea conditions. Suitable for protected and semi-exposed waters, she will go a long way using little fuel. With the suggested 10 HP motor, her speed will be about 6 knots.

This boat is perfect for exploring the Intracoastal Waterway, "The Great Loop" route, the Chesapeake Bay or the Florida Keys. She has a small flat bottom section to allow her to be beached on a sandy beach and large skeg to protect her from grounding when gunkholing in quiet harbors.

The hull weight shown in the table includes typical fittings, stove, sink, head, tanks, batteries and engine. Displacement includes 2 crew, 1/2 full fuel and water tanks, food, tools, spare parts and other cruising gear.

Headroom under the pilothouse is a generous 7' (2,10m) and 4' 9" (1,45 m) in the cabin and head for comfortable seating.

Available for outboard or diesel inboard engines.

Many options are shown on the plans or in the construction notes. The plans show with great detail, an optional inboard diesel engine installation. Options for the galley counters, bins and lockers are shown. Lockers may be added under the forward berth or beside the motorwell. Fuel tanks may be portable or fixed fuel tanks (under the cockpit sole) are possible. A swim platform can be bolted on the transom if you opt for a outboard motor bracket, otherwise a standard swim ladder alongside the cockpit is suggested. Finally, a building plan for an optional rotating mast and boom built with simple hardware will allow the builder to stow a small tender on the cabin roof.
