Lagoon 450 is opening a new era in cruising catamarans. The concept of the catamaran is family oriented. There are more comforts for a wife, kids and guests onboard. The steering block is removed to the flybridge. Those pictures of a completely drenched skipper standing at a steering wheel like a hero against the elements, protecting the entire crew shivering from cold are history now. Due to its brand-new design from Nauta Yacht the 450 model has a spacious fashionable interior exempt from redundancy. The furniture with enough storage room proves that the every inch of space is well thought of. The choice of Alpi is not random. Alpi is a natural timber veneer which is produced from a mixture of Cameroon tropical woods, where wood cutover is strictly controlled by environmental bodies. This material gives the gloss and the complete finish to the look of interiors. Its glossy surface, a variety of patterns and the harmony of shades create a homey atmosphere. The absence of any visible moldings, the quality of flooring, nice carpets in the walkways and the sophistication of the décor are thoroughly thought of by the manufacture. The isolation, the light (both natural and artificial), the ergonomics of the bathrooms and bedrooms conquer every sea traveler. The access to switches (master and engine) is arranged in a simple way but yet protected. It is located in the bedroom – there is a hanging cover at the bed, in the stern part of the cabin. The switch panel is easy to use. The boat is equipped 2 points of steering (one the flybridge and one on the chart table), which is suitable for winter times. Its specifications meet the characteristics of a heavy cruising catamaran. The sails enable the boat to remain dynamic at least at 10 knots of breeze. Be sure your expectations will be met and even exceeded. The work of the boat is impeccable, and the steering wheel reacts to the slightest moves (the metal cables are much more sensitive than the hydraulic gear!). The catamaran is ready to meet and impress the most demanding yachtsmen, and is fearless of any comparison with competitors whatsoever. Lagoon 450 is a decent offspring of its ancestor. It is well commissioned and perfectly suitable for families. Its navigation properties are very good. The boat is consistent, manoeuvreous, has enough sail capacity and a comfortable cabin layout. Lagoon 450 has a funny character when the weather conditions are moderate. However there are no doubts it will withstand strong winds either.
