Designed by Stan Huntingford and built by Cooper Enterprises Inc. in Port Coquitlam, BC, the Maple Leaf series were semi-custom boats built for family cruising in the Pacific North West. If you are looking for a great boat to take your family and friends to Alaska, don't miss this one!
Northern Star has a large hard-top center cockpit with side deck doors that make entry easier than climbing over the combing. A sliding sunroof on the hard dodger helps ventilate the sunroom, and you can see the sails or mountains. There's a table for charts or lunch, and seating for over six. Boards are available to make the cockpit a comfortable double bed at anchor. The sliding companionway door drops out of the way - no messing with three or four hatch boards to get in and out of the boat. A HeaterCraft Radiator by the companionway stairs also heats the cockpit. Both North sails, main and genoa are furling with control lines and sheets led to large winches in the cockpit. You can sail this boat in your pajamas and stay warm and dry.
Below, the large salon seats eight or more cruisers, with impressive storage, warm teak bulkheads, built-in seats and L-shaped settee with tasteful comfortable cushions. Classic yacht design requires a stain-glass cabinet, check! Northern Star's salon is a great room, with plenty of light, cosy with an Alaska Diesel stove. A nav-station is on port with large electrical panel, just outside the stand-up engine room, with a work bench.
There is easy access to both sides of the 100 Hp. 6 cylinder Chrysler Nissan Diesel, that burns 1.25 gal./hr. @ 1800 R.P.M. With two 100 gallon fuel tanks, and a 15 Gal. Day Tank, Northern Star has a motoring range of just over 900 miles. The engine's been serviced this Spring, with cooling vent fan, rebuilt transmission, transmission cooler, raw water pump, engine coolant pump, heat exchanger, fan belts & thermostat, insulated exhaust transfer pipe, rear engine mounts, coolant hoses and bilge pumps. She's ready to go back to Alaska, but family plans have changed.
Salon forward is more storage, a reliable manual head with vanity and sit-down shower with tile floor. The large V-berth has a couple windows and access to the chain locker with 250' galvanized high test anchor chain.
Salon starboard aft, the teak exterior of the freezer and refer blends in as just another built-in storage and handy spot when loading the boat. Unlike most boats, the refrigeration is NOT next to the stove. The safe linear galley has lots of prep-space between the double sink and 3 burner propane stove w/ oven, all well lit with deck prism and led lights. The cook can pass food up to the cockpit through the sliding window above the pantry. Despite the two 100 gallon fresh water tanks, there's a seawater faucet too.
Continuing through the galley aft, you will find tasteful teak single and double beds with storage cabinet between, and drawers below both beds. There's a hatch so you don't miss the helm interest, plenty of windows for light, and a vanity mirror with hidden sink. The master bath has another manual head, tub/shower and yet another Dickinson Diesel Heater!
Outside you will appreciate the wide side decks, simple manageable sail-plan plus spinnaker kit. Note the strong Lafrons windlass and anchoring gear and easy to see lines led back to the cockpit. The Johnson 9.9 Outboard is on the starboard stern rail with a barbecue on port Below the AL hard bottom dingy on davits is the handy swim-step and sugar-scoop transom with a safety boarding ladder.
Well known in cruising circles, Stan Huntingford is respected for gracious placement and all the little details, often missed, adding up to easy comfortable boats to live aboard or cruise. Come see this comfortable Maple Leaf soon. . .
