Lagoon 560 Catamaran

The Lagoon 560 is a more rugged version of the Lagoon 450, larger, and with more cabin configurations. This fast cruising catamaran is an innovative and more luxurious range of the lagoons style, with a large functional and yet elegant interior design by Nauta Yachts.

The main salon and galley are split by an extra large storage block, but still able to offer an airy look. There is also a navigational area on this deck, but the main cockpit area is above the main cabin.

The main cockpit area is open, with easy operating steering wheel, large electronic read outs, and state of the art sail technology, allowing complete functional operation with just a touch of a button or turn of a handle. This makes it so just about anyone can sail and operate this fast cruising catamaran. The higher cockpit also means greater visibility, so you can navigate through the tightest marina or harbor with relative ease.

The Lagoon 560 catamaran also has a four and five cabin design. The four cabins version has large beds, full bathrooms, with showers. The aft master cabin also has a private entrance to the main deck, on open deck. The five cabin design is a little tighter, but still accommodating. The main deck has three different areas. The front has ample views of the water, the main salon has the galley, as well as the dining area, the covered aft section opens to the back, and this also gives you access to the rear swimming platforms. The cockpit deck is completely open, with large seating and lounging areas, providing you and your family or guest with great sun bathing opportunities.
