The DC56 will never hold you back. It can reach top speeds of over 40 knots, thanks to its high-performance composite hull designed and engineered by our in-house expert team.

Time on the water needs to be social, so the DC56 has been mindfully designed to create unforgettable memories with your friends and family. There’s always a space for your kind of fun, whether you are dancing the night away to a DJ set on the vast aft deck or riding up front with friends at full speed, the wind blasting through your hair as you weave past palm-tree fringed islands. There are seven different social spaces from which to choose, and seating has been maximised on the DC56, so 36 or more close friends can sit together for a memorable evening on the water.


two styles, unlimited potential

We have created two styles of the DC56 that can each be adapted to how use your yacht.

The DC56 OPEN fully immerses you in the experience of life on the water. Feel close to the ocean and the action, with a completely unobstructed view and just a single windshield. It’s completely open, just like a center console. But it can do so, so much more.

The DC56 CABIN has the same abilities as the Open, but is closed to protect you from the elements. With the largest windshield for a yacht of it’s size, there is no compromise on view and you’re still free to move between the different social spaces onboard. It’s the perfect yacht for all situations.

DC56 layout overview: Lower deck interior
On the lower deck, there is modern, comfortable and easily maintained accommodation for up to eight guests in four cabins, including an ensuite full-beam master cabin with 70’ OLED TV. There are a total of three large bathrooms on the lower deck, as well as a large fridge and freezer, and dedicated laundry space for washer and dryer. Particular attention has been paid to high ceiling height on the lower deck, giving a sense of space and comfort, while noise and vibration have been minimised to provide a smooth and silent environment.

DC56 layout overview: Aft deck
The vast aft deck space by the waterline lends itself to all manner of uses, from fishing platform to socialising space to stowage place for toys and watercraft – even a submersible. To the sides of this deck, two large benches conceal oversized locker units (6m x 1.65m and 3m x 1.65m) that provide storage for watersports gear and other items, on a scale that is practically unheard of in this yacht size category. Approximately 16 full diving sets can be stored here, or any kind of watersports equipment from surfboards and SUPs to wakeboards and inflatable slides. For fishing enthusiasts, fighting chair, outrigger, bait well, kill box and fish hold options are all available. Should you need to access the engine room quickly and easily, the aft deck hatch can be opened in an instant.
