Madiba56′ presentation

Madiba56 ‘is an offshore sailing yacht designed for sailing in extreme latitudes (North and South).

A rigid doghouse protects the boat’s entrance. This space can be closed on sides as well as on its back to enclose a volume of transition between a cockpit sometimes wet and a warm interior.

On the rear of the cockpit, an over-raised helm station with its own seat positioned between the feet of the rear arch, overhangs a warm cockpit where small friendly spaces are integrated: one large rear salon (convertible into sunbath) / extra outdoor kitchen / small intimate outdoor square.

Inside, the boat is divided into two large spaces:
Only two steps below cockpit level: a large common area with kitchen, wardrobe, saloon and chart table. Down below a staircase, two comfortable cabins, a captain’s office and a private bathroom. On the back, a second staircase releases a crew cabin (or guests) with its own bathroom also used as laundry.

The interior (as well as the deck / cockpit) is provided with multiple storage to optimize the storage volumes. In the saloon, the table is convertible to create a complementary berth.

The mooring line of the boat is positionned on the hull bilges, at the foot of the mainmast.
The boat is equipped with twin engines, a single centreboard and two suspended rudders. This allows him a very weak draft to slip into the small inaccessible anchorages.
