About this Ocean Yachts 56 Convertible


“SharShee Dawn”, one of Ocean Yachts most popular models, the 56 Convertible.  When first introduced to the marketplace, the 56 Convertible exceeded and set the bar for most sportfish convertibles in her class with innovation, efficiency and speed.  The three stateroom, three head layout, with its full beam master stateroom underneath the elevated galley was practical, and extremely popular.  “SharShee Dawn” has recently undergone MANY UPGRADES to include mezzanine seating in the cockpit, electronics upgrades, and major overhauls on both main engines.  If you are looking for an affordable, efficient, and fast sportfish convertible the “SharShee Dawn” is a MUST SEE.  Equipped with the UPGRADED MAN 10-cylinder 1050hp main engines she set the benchmark with a fast 30 knot cruise and impressive top end of 32 knots.  Ocean Yachts 56 Convertible exceeded her time and can still compete with any sportfish convertible on the market today.
