Dragonfly is a superbly maintained 2002 Fountaine Pajot Marquises 56 lying in Phuket in Thailand.
This four-cabin sailing catamaran has been carefully looked after by her one owner from new. Kept in cruising mode and serviced as required with full logbook records, Dragonfly also has an uprated Caterpillar genset, Lithium battery bank and a 150 l/hr+ watermaker.
She runs two 75hp Yanmar diesels with shaft drives, and has less than 3780hrs per engine. Complete with air conditioning, genset, and a huge freezer space, there is little more to wish for when you are planning your cruise in the tropics!
Comprehensively equipped for blue-water cruising with four-year-old Elvstrom sails and a 160Sqm Gennaker, Dragonfly moves with a fair turn of speed.
The big models of Fountaine Pajot catamarans rarely come on the market, and this older Marquises model represents outstanding value for your money.
This is last the Marquises 56 built and she is a 100 per cent foam composite build with four spacious ensuite cabins with another separate double cabin for the crew, affording privacy and seclusion for all onboard.
Dragonfly is available to view in Thailand, so please view the links for her comprehensive inventory and walk-about video.
