When we first saw this amazing yacht in Fort Lauderdale we instantly identified it as the perfect yacht for the South Florida market. First it was her clean lines and solid posture that caught our attention. That was just the beginning! We joined the owner and representative for a sea trial. She has to be one of the most solid performers in her class that we have experienced.

The best way to characterize the ride of the DutchCraft 56 is to compare her to much larger yachts. The ride is stable, comfortable and exhilarating. She has been engineered to take on the challenging seas that we often encounter on our extended voyages. Her stability is enhanced by her speed. Based on the selected power option, she can hit 40 knots.

If the performance doesn’t captivate you, her layout will. Both the open and enclosed versions have the largest cockpit in her class. She can accommodate toys, diving gear, fishing equipment and any other gear that suits your needs. Walking forward from the cockpit brings you to the living/entertaining area of the DutchCraft 56. Her galley is large and functional. The seating area accommodates large parties. Her helm resembles a pilot house of a much larger yacht with optimal visibility. All of the sleeping berths are large and extremely comfortable. Her crew quarter is big enough to be considered additional guest suites. There are so many unique and stunning features of her interior that the only way to get a full understanding is to experience it in person.

The DutchCraft 56 is the perfect choice to Exploring, Diving, Fishing, Extended Cruises and Entertaining. This all comes a an extremely competitive price.
