Fort Lauderdale, Florida



This Bill Dixon Euro-Style Cockpit Motor Yacht offers a practical Pilothouse Motor Yacht layout, excellent performance and sleek styling which was way ahead of its time. This low hour, Captain maintained yacht offers a three stateroom, three head layout, a spacious salon that is dominated by a huge U-shaped sofa and provides room for entertaining a large group or just a relaxing time after a day out on the water. The spacious Master stateroom is aft offering complete privacy while the VIP and additional guest stateroom are forward. An outstanding feature of this Johnson/High-Tech 56 is the superb cockpit with a protective bridge overhead and brand new teak sole.

Lucky Duck features an oversized and easily accessible swim platform for great access to the water. When entering the vessel from shore you can't help but notice the brand new teak sole and the oversized cockpit area which is protected by an overhead bridge extension. You enter the large main salon through double glass doors and the flow od the room lends itself to a great entertainment area as well as a perfect place to relax after a day on the water. Forward to starboard is your lower helm complete with electronics and comfortable seating for that rainy day when you prefer to be indoors. To the port side and down a few steps is the well equipped galley offering all the conveniences of home. Forward you will find the Guest Staterooms, first with twin beds, ensuite head and shower. Forward of that is the VIP stateroom with Island Queen Berth and ensuite head and shower. The bright, large full beam master stateroom is aft with night tables on both sides. She has generous drawer space and hanging lockers and all the comforts you need for extended cruising. The Master is accessed by a staircase aft in the salon on the port side. East access to the large bridge is via a molded staircase from the aft deck. The captain will have comfortable seating, electronics at the bridge helm and outstanding visibility. Lucky Duck is a great performer and together with her bow thruster she is a pleasure to run.
