Lagoon 560 Catamaran Review

This full review is available on Cruising Sea here.

“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.


The massive 560 offers big cabins to spread out in, along with the saloon and galley that put most boat galleys to shame.

A cramped feeling is not possible on a boat of this size, but the opposite feeling of being almost swallowed by the vastness can make itself known before you get used to this enormous boat. Comfort is a given and room for adequate room for as many guests as is appropriate makes this an ideal yacht for a charter with a group of friends or a big family.


The two-levelled deck gives the 560 a more impressive appearance. The flybridge is divided into the helm and a lounge area for socializing with the skipper.

The deck is wide for ease of movement and everything is easily accessible from the deck, including the stairs that lead directly into the water for swimming in the water. The flybridge can also double as extra sleeping space for a big group.


The modern design of the interior gives the 560 an updated feel in comparison to similar catamarans.

Cabins are spacious and have an open feel to them, a feeling that extends throughout the boat.

The saloon and galley are comfortable, easy to move around in, and promote socialization as neither area is enclosed, so conversations can continue uninterrupted.

Under Sail

Like other Lagoon cats, the 560 is controlled with little effort and handles like a dream. The boat sails smoothly; though at a disadvantage due to its size, the speed that the 560 does pick up is consistent and steady.

Why Charter the Lagoon 560?

  • Lots of space on board for big parties of family and/or friends
  • Easy to control and skipper
  • Layout encourages socialization
  • Sails smoothly and is consistently stable
  • Modern interior design
  • Two-level flybridge provides a panoramic view
  • Excellent galley and saloon layouts
  • The size of the boat leaves an impression


The 560 may appear to be more boat than you can handle, but the incredible amount of space on board instantly dissolves any misgivings you could have about chartering a boat of this size.

If you are looking to sail a large group on a catamaran, look no further than the 560. Wedding parties, group vacations, and family reunion trips would all be comfortably accommodated on board the 560. Though the boat is a bit slow, don’t let that deter you! Next time you charter, if you want to make a statement or impress some friends, get a 560. It’ll certainly be a conversation starter!”

Please Note: An alternate BVI-based crew will be on board from December 15 2022 to April 15 2023 Mark & Sally Duncan:


Captain Mark Duncan

Having sailed since a teenager and fished and hiked from a young age, I have a passion for the outdoor life. Always happy, on, next to or in the water!
After years of operations management in the service industry, I embarked on a world tour for 12 months with Sally. We travelled extensively through America, Canada, Alaska, Peru, Australia & New Zealand, returning to Asia. My yachting experience includes cruising in Croatia, Greece, Turkey, and the Caribbean from the Bahamas to the BVI’S and the Windward Islands, the Whitsundays, Malaysia and Thailand. Not to mention UK waters and a Transatlantic crossing. On returning from travelling, I turned the leisure activity I love into a lifestyle. After a season as Flotilla Skipper in Croatia, I have now captained various catamarans and mono-hulls, both as an employed crew and for 10 years as an Owner Operator. My passion for the ocean and its wildlife, coupled with an extensive knowledge of the Caribbean and particularly The B.V.I. ensures my guests get a thoroughly immersive experience of the islands. I pride myself on giving charter guests an amazing time.



Chef/Mate Sally Duncan

I have always loved sailing. I was put in a boat before I could walk, and grew up crewing and helming various dinghies and keelboats, at racing events with family and friends. In more recent years, I have learnt the joys of larger yacht sailing with Mark at a number of destinations throughout the world, and running our own charter catamaran in the BVI for 10 seasons.
My passion for travel, sailing, cuisine and these beautiful islands and their people, ensures my guests always have a ‘Vacation of a Lifetime’.
Cooking with my Mum from an early age, I graduated in Food Sciences at university. Then developed my skills hosting dinner parties for friends and attending chef courses in the UK.
Guests often comment on how varied my cuisine styles and flavours are.
Protecting our fragile environment is also a constant pursuit, so that all the wonderful nature we have is preserved for the future.
In running various charter yachts in the Caribbean, I have found my ‘niche’. I excel at ensuring my charter guests want to come back again and again, which they do!!
