Description

“Attitude” is a 1972 Hughes Northstar built in Toronto Canada.  A Sparkman and Stevens Design, she is a classic, yet still a fast and durable boat by any measure, modern or classic.  Attitude is a survivor that spent the majority of its life in Bay Beach, Canada. 

Previously owned by a broker who started the restoration and now the current owner (an aviation maintainer and pilot) who has continued the sailing restoration.  Her hull and deck are original and still polish up well.  Rigging and sails, sail covers, curtains, Bimini are recent. Sails consist of a new Ullman Main, Genoa and an older but like new Asymmetrical Spinnaker.  

All electronics and lights work including many new items.  She also comes with recent and some brand new covers, cushions, and interior upholstery.  She is powered by a well maintained Atomic four with new electronic ignition, fuel tank, filters and lines. Two props included, one folding prop for racing and one cruising prop.

All thru hulls have been replaced and the water and toilet system has been renewed with pumps.  Portlights, and all glass has been replaced. Toe rails and all teak has been well maintained making her look new when oiled up. The custom sailboat cover and cradle all come with the sale.
