Maya a 40ft steel Junk rigged schooner. Based on "Joshua" Bernard Moitessiers, legendary boat.
A beautiful boat who gets alot of attention everywhere. Here's a link to a YouTube video of her undersail in kefalonia Greece 2016
Regrettably for sale as I have run out of money. I have recent bills for £70k and I've spent probably another 5k in hatches and various other parts. Also nearly 20k in a yard bill for the 18months she was out of the water in her tent.
I have owned Maya for just over 5 years now. For the first 3 years I sailed her around the Greek Islands where I bought her. Thenn I sailed to mallorca where I was for a couple of years working. I sailed 4-5k nm in her. I lifted her March 2018 she was relaunched June 2019. Since launching I sailed her straight to mainland Spain where she currently is. In San Carles De la Ràpita Tarragona Spain.
I originally lifted her in mallorca for copper coat, then decided to have the Hull sprayed then the deck. One job lead to another and she ended up with a full external refit. This quickly spiralling out of control for me money wise. The interior now at least needs a new ceiling as all ceiling were removed for welding.
A list of professional works completed by Chris Mody of Master blaster Mallorca. To a very high standard. Who can also be contacted.

The following are works were carried out during 2018-19 on the yacht Maya. Inside a plastic tent constructed to protect the boat while the work was carried out.
All areas of the exterior of the hull were stripped to the metal
-The hull was sand blasted using aluminum silicate, with very little signs of rust and only two small areas of filler.
-Due to filler the deck was first chipped to remove this then it was also blasted with the same. -This was not a quick process but as the areas were stripped the same day they were painted with an epoxy anti-oxidant primer international Interguard 269.
-The cockpit was stripped out dials, helm, teckdeck, jammers, main hatch.
-All hatches and windows to the rear cabin were removed. These areas were blasted inside and out.
- The bildge under the water tanks and base around the main mast was blasted painted with interguard and then danboline.
The blasting on the deck revealed several issues so a welder was called in to rectify these.
- New boom supports were installed.
-All stanchions were removed and reset.
-All old deck rings were removed due to them being rust traps and constantly rusty and being welded to the deck and new stainless steel ones fabricated so the could be bolted in to place. -A large piece of plate was replaced near the formast due to bad pervious repairs and badly installed winch switches and bad previous filler which had trapped rust.
- There were a number of small welding repairs to be done all over the deck (old screw/bolt holes) that were filled with weld.
- A number of deck fittings that were no longer needed removed and their holes filled with weld.
-The rear left hand side bollard had lots of rust around its base this was removed and re- plated.
-The rings on the push pit were a rust trap so a small piece of rail was removed and a new piece with a flat plate re-placed it so the stainless rings could be installed.
-Due to the size of the anchor the bow roller was removed and enlarged which caused the lower rail on the pulpit to be removed.
-The deck drain in the cockpit was renewed.
-New gunwales were cut near the bow bollards.
-a surveyor was called to check the thickness of the steel deck and he found that it was a minimum of 3mm
Five coats of coppercoat were applied to below the waterline, and that thst just not need repainting for nearly 10 years though it will need annual or bi annual maintenance depending on usage and storage.
When all welding work was finished all the welded areas were then blasted and primed with the interguard.
-Before the welding was carried out hull sides were airless sprayed with 2 coats International Interprime 450 and to even out any ugly welds and to even up a small amour of filler was used. -Due to the deck being very uneven it needed a large amount of filler to rectify this, Interfill 833 was used.
-The deck, stanchions and cockpit were then sprayed with 3 coats of International Interprotect grey epoxy primer.
-All that is now white was primered with 2 coats of International Perfection white primer, then topcoated by 2 coats of International Perfection Snow white topcoat.
-The stanchions and other pieces now grey were primered with more Interprotect and topcoated by 2 coats Perfection Platinum topcoat.
-The non-slip was rollered on one coat then non-slip grit then another coat to cover the grit
Most woodwork was renewed
-new boom supports.
-new block for roller guide.
-new teak deck.
-new grid in cockpit.
-Jammer supports were sanded
-hatch was sanded
-new block for single jammer
-new block to raise the winch
-new hand rails on coach house roof
-the dials were checked out and new lenses found then set into a piece of wood. -the helm striped and sent away to be re-powder coated but it was finished badly -new frames for the inside of each hatch were fabricated and fitted
-new frames for inside the windows were fabricated but not fitted
-new hatches were fitted
-winch was serviced
-new cables fitted for the guardrails
-stainless steel rigging rings fabricated and fitted
-new boats around the base of the masts
-new metal window frames were fabricated for the rear cabin as there were previously non. -the tinted acrylic was sources for the new window frames, and all fitted
There are many photos available of all stages of the works carried out if wanted. I can be contacted with the details above and am happy to pass on photos or answer any question. The above is an idea of all the works we carried out though I can go into a great deal more detail if needs be.
She needs the interior finishing now as you can see in the pics. All ceilings were taken down for welding. I was going to fully refit the interior, but you could just refit a ceiling and sail her.
I will list equipment etc soon
Priced to sell I think, I will consider offers.
I hope the pictures give an idea of the works carried out so far, and some of the interior that needs work. I do have 100's of pictures all over the place. I tried to pick a variety. If you'd like any pics of anything in particular I'll see what I can find.

A brief description, as you walk down the steps/lader into her interior to port is the galley. To starboard a very large chart table.
In front of you is the main mast. Then the salon area to port the table and seating to starboard a large sofa area.
Then a door forward to the forepeak cabin
To port a double bed (in these pics all covered in tools. Below the bed storage for tools and spares which there is alot of both. To starboard a single bed, with storage above full of tools. A large top loading refrigerator below the bed.
Another door forward to the chain locker and the forward mast. 100m of chain. For a rocner 40kg anchor which I couldn't recommend more!
Variours ropes and warps no fenders.
Back to coming down the stairs if you turn to starboard you have the chart table. Walk along here. To the main cabin (this needs the most work) there is a wardrobe to your left then a double bed with the dive cylinders below it. Then there is a single bed to port.
Also the heads to port. With a pump toilet a sink and shower head of the sink.
The water tanks are below the saloon floor
The diesel tanks are below the stairs (kept full) and have enough of the anti diesel bug additive inside.
Batteries are under starboard salon seating and also on chart table wall near a little pic up tank on the wall.
The engine is directly below the cockpit and accessible from 4 different areas very accessible. Just been serviced.
I apologise for the pictures, I woukd say she looks better than this in real life, so to speak. When I took these I had no I tention of selling her. Everything is stowed away and cleaned again now. She did have shot blasting inside too, trust me not an easy job to tidy up.
bought the boat from Tony and Helen Adams who I'm still in touch with and are happy for potential buyers to contact them still if you need extra info that I can't give. Here is what Tony said about Mayas build
The information you asked for:
I built Maya from drawings I lofted up from a design by Maurice Amiet. He designed a hard chine ketch called EMBRUN (Spray") based on Jean Knocker's Joshua, specially for amateur construction (hence the hard chine). I bought the drawings from Joseph Fricaud at his yard at Tarare near Lyon, where Bernard Moitessier's original Joshua was built.
I changed the design from ketch to junk rigged schooner, using the formula supplied by the famous junk rig sailors Blondie Hasler and Jock McCloud.
I built Maya at my home, Manor House, on the bank of the River Yare in Norwich, with the help of my son Carl, now a professional boat builder who worked for 20 years with Halberg Rassey in Sweden.
I launched Maya in 1989.
My wife Helen and lived on board for sixteen years and sailed halfway round the world in sea miles to Sweden, Finland, South of France, Italy, Sardinia, Tunisia and Greece.
Sails were made by Jeckells of Wroxham.
The engine was completely rebuilt nine years ago.
The steel hull, built on a 25mm thick sole plate, is keel 6 and 8mm ; bottom chine 5mm; top chine 4mm; deck3 mm.
The masts are tapered (one piece single extrusion) 4mm thick steel.
