The Vanguard DR560 has a wide beam, making it extremely stable during use and when anchored. The high bow sheer ensures safety and a dry ride in all sea conditions.

The DR560's high capacity makes the boat ideal for support duties, club rescue and other professional operations - but it can also be configured for sports and leisure.

The compact size and weight of the DR560 means it can be easily towed, launched and recovered - it's a big boat with small boat handling requirements.

Closed-cell polyurethane foam filling provides extra buoyancy, making the boat practically unsinkable.

The DR560 has a moulded deck with non-slip finish and a large, strong and non-slip bow storage locker which makes for easy access to other boats or jetties via the bow.

The DR560 can be fitted with an choice of optional jockey consoles - internal cable conduits free up the deck and the transom counterbracket provides access to the bilge, allowing the installation of a pump.
