The Lagoon 570 was one of the first sailing yachts I was fortunate enough to experience. The 570 is one of the first models of Lagoon catamarans and is one of my favorite boats.
It’s true when it’s said that you never forget your first love, and I have hardly forgotten my affection for these yachts.
Lagoon Cats have remained my go-to sailing vessel and this Lagoon 570 Catamaran review will explain why I have been a loyal follower of these boats since I first stepped foot aboard the 570.
The purpose of the 570 was to allow passengers to sail in luxury, but I doubt that the vessel intended for passengers to spread out and not move a muscle for a solid week.
I can’t say that is what I did, but I was tempted. That is how comfortable and spacious the 570 was. I could sleep anywhere on this boat without feeling cramped or in an odd position.
The 570 displays considerable power and handles well in moderate winds. I was surprised that the controls only take a light hand and are very easy to get the hang of before I felt completely comfortable at the helm.
The vessel remains strong and steady as it slices through the wind. The 570 isn’t a speedboat, but it is still an impressive boat.
Teak wood paneling and floors give the boat a homey feel while the lines are kept clean and rounded.
The galley is accessible from the welcoming saloon that has plenty of room for all the comforts of home.
I enjoyed kicking my feet up for a meal below deck as I gazed out of the windows and took in the view and the sunshine without being out in the elements.
Above deck, the teak wood makes an appearance, leading to the attractive appearance of the boat.
There is a lounge area that quickly became a much sought-after spot for all the passengers.
I appreciated the overall width of the boat that made moving from one end of the boat to the other convenient and without all the twisting and turning required to navigate narrower above deck walkways.
Comparison with the Lagoon 560
The 570 isn’t exactly what I would call “intimate”, but the Lagoon 560 is a massive vessel.
I like space and room to move, but the 560 can be a bit overkill. If you have a lot of guests and need the space, the 560 is probably your best bet, but I suggest the 570 for a smaller group.
You will still have plenty of room, but you won’t feel as isolated on a boat full of people as you might on the 560.
The 560 is basically an enlarged version of the 570, but it is slow due to being bogged down from its increased size.
