Lagoon 56ft - 2013 (Refit 2019)


Yacht description

Altesse is a beautiful Lagoon 560, able to accommodate 8 guests in 4 queen size cabins. Lagoon 560s are widely acknowledged as one of the best charter boats on the market, and Altesse has gone one step further undergoing a major refit to add further refinements for their guests to enjoy – full dining and additional barbeque on the flybridge, extra sun lounging areas and the very best selection of water toys. There is also onboard diving.

Each of the queen cabins offer excellent headroom and walk around beds – the aft master has a separate shower stall, toilet and sink area. The salon and galley are bright with light leather upholstery, low tables and a large screen pop up TV.

Our personal opinion

Why book Altesse – THE CREW –Kennon and Stefanie are exceptional – they offer exemplary customer service but with lots of fun thrown in. Stefanie’s food is mouthwatering, and Kennon is a brilliant host, add to this a well-deserved Best in Show at the 2022 USVI Crewed Yacht Show – certainly a winning combination!

Onboard experience

Crew profile
Originally from Georgia, Kennon has been sailing since 2011 when he decided to buy a 23’ sailboat from craigslist for $500. It was all downhill from there as sailing fever took hold. He went on to complete a two and a half year double handed circumnavigation (2018 - 2020) aboard his 1971 Tartan 34C Temujin which he still lives aboard and cruises in the off season. Stephanie’s cooking tends to be on the lighter healthier side bringing in as many of the local ingredients as possible. However, her motto in life is, “Everything in moderation, including moderation!”
