The Dufour 56 Center Cockpit has accommodations for six adults with three private sleeping cabins, two very comfortable double cabins aft along with two heads and a beautiful spacious owners stateroom forward. With a spacious salon and really great galley and a beatiful nav station and ships office, you can’t ask for more. This commodious layout makes her a sought after vessel for a family or cruisers who love to entertain. This is a modern vessel that is distinctly European in its design and ambiance. It is clean and light and bright and modern and yet the Mahogany paneling is nicely nautical. The Master cabin forward is pleasing with the spacious V-berth and access to the forward head. The aft cabins port and starboard are quite large due to the generous beam carried well aft. The three private cabins make this a very commodious vessel. The main salon is spacious and comfortable with good ventilation from the opening deck hatches and opening ports with screens. The main salon dining arrangement can please a party, if the chef can handle it. The u-shaped dinette to starboard has a large table which has been adapted with drop down leaves to make the space more open. Still you can seat eight if you want to. The galley is actually a kitchen arranged on the port side adjacent the dining area. It is a real French galley, so it is not that difficult to please the crew. The boat is elegant and sophisticated European with very comfortable accommodations for six, gorgeous entertaining cockpit, swim platform, cockpit shower and if you have a vision that includes friends, you will not disappoint yourself or your friends.
This vessel offers a beautiful walkthrough ships galley laid out on the port side with awesome counter space and all amenities.
The owner reports a favorite thing is nestling into the helm seat with great visibility and the very responsive rack and pinion steering system and the rock solid autopilot steering. Sounds good to me!
All the systems on the boat have been well maintained and upgraded for a cruising six months each year.
The main engine charges with a large alternator with additional charging via Solar which is especially nice for leaving the boat stored on the hard. For shore power charging there is a European 240volt shore power connection. It is quite easy to add a step down convertor for US 110 shore power connection.

The standing rigging was all replaced in 2014. With all control lines led aft to the cockpit this vessel is safe and easily managed by a couple. There are six winches and 19 spinlock line clutches to manage all the lines in the cockpit. The sails are in excellent condition and rigged by ocean sailors to sail safely in every condition.
This great sailing family cruiser is fast and easy to sail. She is equipped with all the deck hardware and ground tackle needed for safe cruising. Her owners report that she is solid and well built. They are impressed with her performance in heavy weather.
Liopin has been meticulously maintained and upgraded to be a wonderful cruiser. Equipment is current and ready to go. You could actually buy the boat and sail away this Fall! You can't say that about many boats.
