Re: Need info on 1980 Cooper Maple Leaf 54

The whole series of Maple Leaf boats from 42 to 68 are very similar in appearance, in many cases the various lengths (42,48,50, 54, 56 etc) are simply 'stretched' versions.
Some listings:

Maple Leaf boats for sale - www.yachtworld.co.uk

and some data:

MAPLE LEAF 54 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

Many of these boats have crossed oceans.. large, comfy cruisers if not necessarily the prettiest girl at the dance. Certain models suffered steering issues downwind, many have been 'fixed' with subsequent rudder modifications.

I had been looking at a friend's Maple Leaf 54, but it turned out she really didn't want to sell it. I ended up purchasing a Hylas 49, which I absolutely adore.

IMHO that is THE best looking center cockpit boat in existence. Your friend did you a HUGE favour.

Re: Need info on 1980 Cooper Maple Leaf 54

Say what you want about the Maple Leaf boats; I say they are damn well built.

I recently inspected a Maple Leaf 60 that had been driven on the rocks at full speed near Vancouver, BC, by the delivery skipper. He then decided to continue on to Alameda without stopping to check the damage. Here are a few of the pix I took:







I'd say a lesser boat would have been sunk by such an impact.
