After conquering many international markets, the 55-footer, Ferretti Yacht 550 arrives for the first time in the Middle East. The flybridge features an unprecedented hull design, equipment and engine room arrangement, and interior layout. This yacht combines elegance with a sporty character. It is indeed characterized by clear-cut and yet very seducing lines.
The Lagoon 560 gave Lagoon a strong lead in terms of comfort, ergonomics and style, combining the world-renowned talents of the architectural firm VPLP and the design consultants Nauta. The S2 version offers an additional choice of layouts which are unequalled for this size of catamaran: up to 5 fully independent cabins and the choice between a galley in the port hull or as a centre island. The Lagoon 560 S2, designed for hospitable cruising, offers a layout which is ideal for accommodating a skipper, who has his own private quarters on board.
