The Lagoons 450 and 52 are the two bestsellers in the Lagoon range, partly thanks to their superb flybridges, the design which Lagoon launched in 2004, and which attracted a great deal of attention before being adopted by many other catamaran builders.
All catamarans in the Lagoon range over 45′ are equipped with a flybridge. However, because « it takes all kinds to make a world », we decided to meet the need of those sailors who do not want a flybridge area and develop the new SporTop versions of the Lagoons 450 and 52, featuring a more conventional and secure helm station (up against the coach house bulkhead) which provides easier direct communication with the crew in the cockpit, as well as a lowered rig, which reduces pitching and makes access to the boom easier, while keeping the same sail area.
So, sailors can now choose between a FlyBridge or SporTop version of the Lagoons 450 and 52 ranges. New names of these models are: 450 F, 450 S, 52 F and 52 S.
To mark the occasion, Lagoon has also asked Nauta to work on a new interior design for these two models:
For the Lagoon 52, a new U-shaped galley gives better worktop layout and, with no central island, the galley is more practical and the saloon more spacious.
For the Lagoon 450, the U-shaped galley has been turned 90° to provide more direct access to the saloon and cockpit. This makes the worktops in the galley much more user-friendly. The forward cabins on the Lagoon 450 have also been modified: they are now wider and more comfortable, with semi-island double beds and a lateral access.
These new layouts will be applied to both FlyBridge and SporTop versions of the Lagoons 450 and 52.
