1984 Maple Leaf 56

Heading offshore or looking for an amazing liveaboard? The Maple Leaf 56 is a great choice. This spacious cruiser has a large, well-protected center cockpit, 3 cabins and a functional cutter-rigged sloop sail plan. This is an amazingly spacious cruiser that is safe and capable with an impressive history.

T Tauri Wind is a true offshore veteran having rounded Cape Horn multiple times (both ways) with visits to the Southern Ocean’s island chains. Her hull is strong and she’s set up for long-distance cruising in high latitudes. Very well insulated, simple, effective systems that stand the test of time. Oversized everything and spares of things most people don’t have spares for, this boat is very well equipped for its intended purpose with a setup that is logical and not overly complicated so a new owner will be able to familiarize themselves relatively quickly.

Give Mark a call with any questions and arrange an in-person viewing.

On Deck

The fully enclosed centre cockpit is the beating heart of this vessel and where you will spend much of your time aboard. The hard top with a full canvas enclosure keeps you protected from the elements. The large, padded seating area works as an entertainment centre for friends and family and will become your favourite sea bunks on a passage.

There is easy access to the primary winches and the boat is set up to operate from the cockpit. Raising and lowering the mainsail will be the only reason to be on deck.

The captain’s chair is well positioned in the front of the cockpit with a full array of electronics. The chair can be removed at anchor and a teak table placed for more table space.

On the rear deck is the Kuma BBQ, two access hatches to a massive storage area in the lazarette and an electric winch for managing stern tie lines. There is also a large canvas sunshade covering the aft deck and a 6 man life raft (not currently certified)

The sidedecks are wide with lots of handholds. Forward is where the tender is stored on the foredeck  with its own small windlass for launching and retrieving.

The bow has a main anchor and 80 lb German-made Rocna-type anchor on 200 ft of chain. The spare is a 100lb Rocna-type anchor. The windlass is a dependable Maxwell-Nilsson V1000 with foot controls.


The Maple Leaf 56 is huge. Well thought out for offshore passages and spending time at anchor. The owner’s cabin is extremely spacious. It has a queen-sized island berth, hanging lockers galore, shelves, a desk and ensuite head with sink, toilet and large step-down shower stall.

The forward cabin has a large, comfortable v-berth. Just aft is a second cabin that has been converted into a tool room/ workshop but can easily be converted back to the original bunk bed set up.

Across from the workshop is the forward head with washbasin, toilet and shower stall with sit-tub.

The main salon is spacious. There is a dedicated navigation space with a complete electronics and communication station. Across is a setee that converts into a comfortable double berth.

The aft end of the main salon has a large and comfortable U-shaped seating/dining area to port with lots of storage underneath. To starboard is a serving side of the galley with plenty of counter space, storage for plates, bowls, glasses, etc. and access to a large 5 cubic foot freezer. Down a step is the cooking area of the galley with fridge, three burner propane stove with oven, large stainless steel sinks and again….lots of storage.

There is a door that is the access to the engine room and the galley leads to the aft, owner’s cabin.
