55' Marquis 55 LS
This 2007 55’ Marquis is the perfect size cruising yacht with more space than you would ever expect from a boat this size. From the swim platform to the bow pulpit and throughout the vessel, Marquis has built a 55' yacht with room to live and entertain.
The Marquis 55 LS (called the 560 since 2009) is marketed as a blend of Italian styling and American craftsmanship. True enough: the design work was done in Venice, Italy, by Novolari-Lenard, and all Marquis yachts—a division of Carver Yachts—are built in Pulaski, Wisconsin. Introduced in 2007, the 55 LS is an appealing and well-constructed motoryacht whose graceful lines stand in dramatic contrast to Carver’s usual slab-sided designs.
Her spacious and richly appointed interior is similar in layout to many other motoryachts her size, with a full-beam salon, home-size galley and dedicated dinette forward, and three staterooms and two heads on the lower level. Note that the guest head is split with the shower to port and toilet to starboard.
A lower helm is standard which provides the opportunity to join the crowd or stay out of the weather when underway.
The flybridge can be reached from interior steps or a staircase in the cockpit, and a watertight door in transom opens to a spacious lazarette and engine room. The flybridge is designed to entertain with a full wet bar, electric grill, ice maker and refrigerator. There is also seating and a table aft. The full helm with retractable instrument panel and a sun pad forward. A fully enclosed and air conditioned bridge for year-round comfort.
Additional features include bow and stern thrusters, Yacht Commander controller ($15K), hardwood flooring, 2 new cameras, and more.
Volvo 715hp diesels cruise the Marquis in the low 20s (27–28 knots top).
Immaculate and very well maintained fresh-water Yacht.
