Lagoon introduced the world to flybridge catamaran sailing with the 440 in 2004. The 450 is a much-refined replacement. With a bigger volume, improved styling and more comfort inside and out, the 450 takes the flybridge concept to a new level.
The deck moulding has recessed hatches, cutaway transoms, secure enclosed stairwells and the addition of as sun lounging area “upstairs”. Even the largest of crews can find a space of their own with no less than three cockpits and a dedicated sunbathing space on the roof.
All sail controls are managed from the flybridge, leaving the space below completely clear for entertaining. Those at the helm are never too remote from the crew below: the opening roof over the aft cockpit aids communication and provides a clear view of the stern when reversing.
Solidly constructed in resin infused GRP with a balsa core and with a huge options list, the 450 is a safe, reassuring and adaptable holiday yacht or world cruising home.
The Nauta interior of the 450 comes in a choice of three wood finishes. The saloon has a U-shaped galley facing aft with two fridges or a separate fridge and freezer. Add the optional cockipt fridge and you have plenty of cold storage for long trips. In the owner's hul of the three cabin version there is a really large toilet and shower are forward, a desk and settee area amindships and a big island bed at the stern when the motion is most comfortable at sea. The settee can be replaced with additional storage lockers.The navigation station is forward-facing with panoramic views. FOr motoring or motorsailing in difficult conditions we can add a send set of throttles weith a steering joystick at the nav table.
“Ancasta have been superlative supporters of my Lagoon experience and if I order another it will be with you.” .... "
A Reynard - Owner of a Lagoon 620
Tulu has been a real pleasure to live and sail aboard. Nearly four years and 16,000 miles on, I'm not sure there is much we would change! Ancasta have always been, before, during and after delivery/commissioning most helpful and attentive. We definitely made the right choice. .... "
