Naval architects VPLP and design team Nauta show off their world-renowned talent with the Lagoon 560 … and this incredible cat puts them a class of their own in terms of comfort, ergonomics, style and performance.

The 560 – it is the ultimate voyager’s catamaran, and boasts advanced features developed by Lagoon – like infusion moulded construction, a ‘gull-wing’ bridgedeck, vertical windows for the saloon and light-filled cabins … with an unobstructed view at anchor or under sail.

The deck has three sensational separate living areas – the foredeck area is cosy and private, and the flybridge is perfect for sunbaking and offers unobstructed views. Designers have thoughtfully designed an aft cockpit for protection and entertaining.

The 560 is built for cruising and offers a spacious layout which is ideal for accommodating a skipper, with private quarters on board.


The fly bridge is a veritable upper-deck saloon (access via closable stairway). Its helm station provides perfect visibility and includes a magnificent spot for sunbathing at the rear.

The cockpit is fully protected from the sun and sea spray and is on the same level as the galley (centre galley version), saloon and chart table.

Includes large sliding glass door

Lagoon continues to offer a greater choice for cruisers, with three specification levels:

‘Essential’ includes all the must have options and is great value for money.  

‘Cruising’ provides extra equipment for a bit more comfort.

‘Comfort’ ensures you have everything you need for longer distance blue water cruising.

All models of the glorious Lagoon 560 S2 are reliable, innovative, fast – yet easy to handle – and immensely comfortable both underway and at anchor.

The vast hull lights ensure exceptional natural lighting in the cabins, and indirect lighting in the saloon and cabins provides effective yet restful lighting.

The engine compartments are separated from the living area and are perfectly sound-proofed.

The cockpit is directly accessible from the owners’ cabin (starboard) and guest cabin (port).

The chart table is forward-facing and comes with fold-away control board for electronics. The new electronic control station on the Lagoon 560 is simple, user-friendly and efficient.

Lagoon 560 Reviews


The Lagoon 560 is an immense vessel that is better suited to a large party, than to a small, intimate gathering or a vacation consisting of only immediate family, but it could still handle that if you need a lot of extra space.

The 560 is bigger than life and it glories in the spectacle it creates as it cuts its way through the water.

This Lagoon 560 catamaran review will touch on the enormity of the 560, as well as the most mundane aspects of this boat. The 560 was built to impress and is difficult to ignore.

With accommodation on three levels, an overall length of 56 feet and a beam of 31 feet, this latest entry from the world’s largest catamaran builder was bigger than the house where my wife and I raised two children and a large dog. And with AC, a washer and dryer, a fridge, a freezer and icemaker, a built-in wine locker and a master cabin complete with its own companionway, it looked to be a whole lot more comfortable.

Plus, I’d discover a couple of days later, this cat could sail.

“In a 25-knot strong breeze, sailing full and by, the GPS varied between 8.5 and 9.2 knots. Next morning, in a light breeze, we were able to set full sail (280 sq m!). The 560 sails great in as little as 3 knots of real wind.”

Multicoques Magazine, FR / Multihulls World, UK – February 2011

“A breeze of between 9 and 12 knots allowed us to fully appreciate the quality of the designers’ work. Despite a displacement of 30.3 tonnes, the boat made steady progress, was agile when manoeuvring and quickly picked up speed after each tack.”
