Our Boat Stats - Mapleleaf 56

   This is a true blue water cruising boat. The boat was ideal for a cruising family, as we found out down the Oregon coast the boat is way tougher than we are. the boat seems at its best in weather many sailors tuck and hide. We have taken the boat through the ice fields in Alaska, Surfed down waves up to 50 feet high, taken waves on the beam which went right over the cockpit enclosure, sailed 3,000 miles against the trade winds with a cruising range under power that many trawlers can only dream of. While in port we could sit on our lawn chairs on the deck under the sunshade. Inside the boat all berths were large enough for Bruce (6'2") to sleep in with a large V berth for 2 adults, side cabin with a single bunk and a double plus a master suite with a queen size bed which you can walk up to on both sides of the bed. The boat also has 2 stand alone showers which were well used during our trip with girls on board. This boat took us 20,000 miles safely and in comfort and style second to none.
