The Marquise 56′ was Fountaine Pajot’s flagship catamaran and was beautifully built with typical French flair and class! Designed to be a comfortable open ocean cruising yacht the 56’ Marquise is still the ideal charter catamaran. Make no mistake, the Marquise 56′ is a big catamaran with one of the largest living areas of any yacht in its class and a true example of liveaboards.
She has had a full interior refit throughout, including all her cabins, bathrooms and saloon and lounge area. Her galley has also been stripped out and replaced.
She has undergone a full mechanical rebuild and overhaul of engines and generator, has brand new sails, new rigging, new boom, new trampolines and a whole lot more! She has been fully equipped with a new tender and water sports equipment, all new linens and new galley, cutlery and crockery equipment. She is ready to offer a top notch charter experience in East Africa!
Main Saloon and Open Plan Galley
Her bright and spacious main living area saloon and lounge offers generous headroom throughout its width and is a perfect place to entertain inside! Her port side main saloon dining table can sit 8 guests and there is an additional lounge sofa to starboard. The living room also has a flat screen TV and DVD, and we have on board Bluetooth speakers so guests can bring their own music.
The large open plan galley offers plenty of space for chef to conjure up delicious meals and the cocktail bar counter offers a comfortable place to sit and have drinks and discuss how you would like your freshly caught fish prepared.
The galley is fully equipped with everything a chef would need and with 3 fridges / freezers there is plenty of space for keeping your drinks cold. There is also an ice maker on board for those crushed ice cocktails, gin and tonics and whiskey on the rocks!
Our Marquise 56′ offers 4 separate air conditioned double cabins; each has its own ensuite bathroom with shower. The cabins are finished off in beautiful oak wood with brand new white trim. Elegant, simple and clean!
Each cabin has lots of cupboard space for storing clothes and luggage, its own music system, reading lights and power points for charging cameras and phones and air conditioning.
Cockpit and Outside Deck
The outer platform of the Marquise offers a flat space of more than 92 m2. The Foredeck and trampoline area offer a huge amount of space for relaxation in the sun and soft cushions and bean bags makes for a perfect place to relax and unwind.
The rear cockpit is fitted with seating and a teak wood table for 8-10 people for alfresco dining. The table can be folded away to create extra space. There is a sunbathing/lounging area each side of the cockpit which is protected from the sun with a large Bimini providing plenty of shade, even on the sunniest days.
The rear sugar scoops make for large swim platforms and the wide rear platform and side deck catwalks make moving around this yacht decks easy and safe. There is also an outside gas BBQ / Braai so you can enjoy freshly prepared meals cooked outside, under the stars!
