Comfortable Center Cockpit Blue Water Cruiser

Large enough for family, friends and guests for a day, a week, or longer adventure. Three staterooms, two heads, and a large dry cockpit.

Amenities include custom refrigerator and freezer, solar power, 11Kw Westerbeke generator, 3 zone air conditioning, water maker, washer/dryer and extensive electronics.   Major refit in 2012 and in exceptional condition.  The refit included completely rebuilt Perkins diesel engine - approx. 474 hours, new aluminum fuel and water tanks. All critical 12 volt and 110 volt systems were replaced. New main salon with modern furniture, and much more!  Properly outfitted for world cruising or a great live aboard. 

The Nautical Development Corp, Stevens 56 is known for a rock-solid thick fiberglass hull, sea-kindliness, and good steady sailing ability. Interior is beautiful teak and spacious. Plenty of above-deck space, many opening hatches and ports. Plus, large water and fuel tanks for extended cruising, and a sturdy rig. She was designed by the well-known naval architect Steve Seaton. An incredible value for the money! Well-founded and impeccably maintained fifty-six-foot sailing home now made available by her knowledgeable owner!

Refit is well documented with spreadsheet records of all spares and an inventory of the storage spaces. Owner's world cruising plans changed after the refit - all work done to perfection benefiting a new owner.
