560; 55 LS
Length w/ Pulpit:
The Marquis 560 (called the 55 LS in 200708) was marketed as a blend of Italian styling and American craftsmanship. True enoughthe design work was done in Venice, Italy, by Novolari-Lenard and Marquis yachts (a division of Carver Yachts) are built in Pulaski, Wisconsin. Introduced in 2007, the 560 is an appealing and well-constructed motoryacht whose graceful lines stand in dramatic contrast to Carvers usual slab-sided designs. Her spacious and richly appointed interior is similar in layout to many other motoryachts her size, with a full-beam salon, home-size galley and dedicated dinette forward, and three staterooms and two heads on the lower level. Note that the guest head is split with the shower to port and toilet to starboard. A lower helm is standardto port, which is somewhat uncommon. The flybridge can be reached from interior steps or a staircase in the cockpit, and a watertight door in transom opens to a spacious lazarette and engine room. Additional features include bow and stern thrusters, a large flybridge with pop-up helm display, and distinctive hullside windows. The side decks are narrow. Volvo 715hp diesels cruise the Marquis 560 in the low 20s (2628 knots top).
