$ 1,750,000

‘Folie Deux’ is an elegant President Legend 680 Skylounge Pilothouse that is well equipped for comfortable cruising. She will sleep up to 6 owners and guests plus 2 crew.


Stepping aboard from the oversized integral swim step with 5 staple rails for safety, you enter a large teak soled cockpit. This spacious area is protected from the weather by the extended boat deck above and has a beautiful fixed cherry table with built in settee and loose chairs providing a wonderful space for al fresco meals or cocktails. A ladder provides access up to the boat deck and wing doors on both side decks block the wind. Moving forward to the bow is easy and safe with the wide walk-around side decks that are covered up to the Portuguese bridge and there are mid ship boarding gates on each side. The Portuguese bridge has built in storage lockers and the bow area has room for 2 kayaks, fenders and a raised anchor area. 


Entering the bright main salon through sliding stainless framed doors one gets the feel of stepping into a luxurious condo. There are two barrel chairs to port and a large couch to starboard . Forward are cupboards, bookshelves, wine storage and TV. The distinctive French Godin parlour stove makes this a warm and cozy space for entertaining or unwinding. The large windows provide great sight lines and let in plenty of natural light making this a very inviting space.


Forward to starboard is a convenient day head then up two steps is a spacious forward area with generous U-shaped galley stretching to port. The well equipped galley offers everything the gourmet chef needs. The large curved settee with dining table is set under the five forward windows offering a bright and airy place to enjoy fine meals. There is a cavernous storage space behind the settee, handy access doors to both side decks and a starboard wing docking station at the Portuguese bridge.


The upper Skylounge offers the best views on board and is accessed via stairs near the galley. Here the main helm is on centerline with two Stidd chairs for Captain and Mate. A raised settee with sliding table aft of the helm offers guests a wonderful spot to enjoy the views. To starboard is a handy wet bar area with granite countertops, sink and fridge.  Exterior access is via doors on either side with a second wing docking station and the boat deck is accessed through a door aft. The Skylounge is air conditioned and is the perfect spot to take in the action while underway or use as a separate quiet space to enjoy life at anchor.


The boat deck provides easy access to launch or retrieve the ships Boston Whaler tender which sits athwartship at the aft end of the boat deck. A large S/S propane BBQ is forward of the tender crane and a built in electric Gaggenau grill station is to starboard.


Luxurious belowdecks accommodations include the VIP stateroom forward featuring a centerline queen berth, screened skylight hatches, hanging locker plus ample drawer storage. The second guest stateroom offers two stacked single berths, a desk and the ship's laundry. Pocket privacy doors open to a large foyer enabling use of this cabin as the ship's office. The forward guest head with separate stall shower is accessed from this foyer. 


The sizeable Master stateroom is full width on centerline with an island king bed. Here the custom decor includes beautiful wood valances, an overhead compass rose art piece, ample built-in storage, a walk-in closet, 9 lockers and 26 storage drawers. Three opening port lights offer ventilation and there is a built in dressing seat along the port side. The ensuite Master head features double sinks, electric toilet and an oversize stall shower.

The crew cabin, utility area and engine room can be accessed through a watertight stern access door from the swim platform or via the aft deck access hatch. This area has a crew cabin with twin bunks, a crew head (currently housing a chest freezer), plenty of built in cabinetry, tool storage, and workspace.


The spotless and well laid out engine room features almost 6' height and good access to the engines and other equipment.
