THE flybridge, by Lagoon
Replacing a catamaran that has come to be seen as a benchmark is no easy task. But the VPLP architects, in partnership with Lagoon and the celebrated Nauta Design studio, have been brilliantly successful in creating the 450.
- in terms of accommodation
- deck areas

A steering station on the fly bridge with safe access from both sides for perfect visibility and a large sunbathing area.
A spacious cockpit, again ideal for sunbathing, on the same level as the galley, with a ventilation panel.
A second cockpit, making best use of the forward area.
Particularly safe and effective transom platforms for coming aboard or accessing the tender.
« 19 days! Maybe not a "Route du Rhum" time, but nevertheless a very creditable performance for a voyage from La Rochelle to Pointe à Pitre (3477 miles) in a strictly standard Lagoon 450." »
Jean-François Tanguy, professional skipper - February 2011
« The sailplan gives the boat enough power to remain fast and dynamic in a wind of less than 10 knots. »
