Large and luxurious go hand-in-hand on the Ipanema 58 by Fountaine Pajot. Hailed by Sail Magazine as a yacht “with big accommodations that easily rival those of a monohull 20ft longer”, there is enough space to lounge, sunbathe, or launch water toys. Enchante features four different private guest areas on multiple levels - a huge comfortable flybridge up top, an aft cockpit with teak table and separate sitting area, a spacious interior saloon, and a private lounging area in the bow. Underwater lights make for wonderful nighttime viewing of marine life.
For a ´birds-eye´ view of Enchanté, see the drone footage in the Video section.
The flybridge is one of the best features and a remarkable structure that easily seats 10 or more people. This upper deck area is well above the water with a 360° view and open to evening breezes. It features full standing headroom, a Bimini top, and a wet bar
There is a spacious teak appointed aft cockpit accommodating a large teak dining table, a separate seating area, and two built-in loungers. The interior saloon offers a modern and cozy lounge area, including a sofa, cocktail table, and big-screen television. This area also includes a fully equipped kitchen and interior navigation station. The bow area offers two trampolines plus two more loungers and adapts to yoga, gymnastics, or simply a space with unusual solitude.
All sleeping cabins are below deck, each with a queen-size bed and its own en-suite bathroom. Each cabin has individually controlled air-conditioning and additional separate built-in interior ventilation. Wi-Fi is available throughout the boat.
For parties using less than all guest cabins, two cabins that share a stairway may be used together to offer separate “his and hers” bathrooms, personal storage, or even dual sleeping areas.

Enchante Guest Reviews
Charlie´s Birthday Party
We had a 90th birthday party on board for my father, friends, and family that was so special! The captain carefully orchestrated a plan that allowed my father to safety snorkel. The chef baked a special cake. We even had dancing on the back deck!

Snorkeling and diving off Enchante
I had a great time on the boat. Louis knew where all the great snorkeling and dives sites were located. Luckily I had my Go Pro for this great Turtle Shot. Later we went scuba diving at night and there were turtles at a wreck. The wheelhouse was like something out of Sponge Bob.

Lovely week of sailing and sunning
What a fabulous experience! A beautiful yacht that included every amenity and a captain and crew that couldn´t do enough for us.
