S/V Victoria is a 2001 Fountaine Pajot Marquises 56 Catamaran for sale by owner

This Boat Owner requires financial settlement only ... trades will not be considered!!

A Catamaran for the Tropics:

This beautiful and fully appointed 56 foot Fountaine Pajot Marquises was built for charter and originally sold to the Moorings company. It, along with several other Marquises, was owned by the Moorings company personally and always had a licensed captain aboard and was therefore maintained in the highest manor.

In 2011 the current owners purchased the boat and began an extensive refit and upgrade program which was completed in 2012. Upgrades to the Marquises design include the following:
  • Custom hardtop with solar panels, sunshades and dodger.
  • Faux Teak Decking installed on the cockpit sole and sugar scoop steps.
  • Cut aways were developed at the bottom of the Sugar Scoops to enhance ease of entry.
  • On the inside, the galley was redesigned and rebuilt. Additional upper cabinets were added, a 24 " Bosch stainless stove was installed, and the counters were replaced with Corian. Most importantly, a custom 12V, 15.5 cubic foot refrigerator was built next to the galley (!!).
  • The four ensuit heads were changes from manual to electric.
  • Both forward beds were raised 8 inches to increase the bed width by six inches.
  • Zantrex 2400 watt invertor was added and the bank of batteries was enlarged. USA 110 volt service is now available in the main salon, galley and both aft cabins.
  • The dingy is an AB 15 foot, center console with a 70 horse Yamaha 4 stroke outboard purchased in 2015.
