Navigator prospered in recent years by delivering capableif basicyachts at prices well below the competition. The 56 Classic followed in that tradition, a graceful pilothouse yacht with traditional lines and comfortable three-stateroom interior. A stretched version of the top-selling 53 Classic, the 56 Classic is built on solid fiberglass hull with an integrated swim platform. A 15-foot beam is narrow for a boat this size, so no one will describe the accommodations of the 56 Classic as spacious. The pilothouse layout includes a comfortable salon with a long sofa to starboard, barrel chair to port, and two stools at the bar. The U-shaped galley is forward and open to the salon. Up two steps to the helm level is the U-shaped dining area and steps to the flybridge. The staterooms are accessed down a stairway forward to starboard of the helm. The master stateroom with walkaround queen bed is amidships. The VIP stateroom with queen berth is forward, and the guest stateroom with upper/lower bunks is to port. Both heads have separate stall showers. The Navigators large cockpit includes a transom door but no flybridge steps. Volvo 430hp diesels cruise at 1718 knots (low 20s top).
