2019 Lagoon 45 ft 450 F Hull 736
In Fort Lauderdale, FL October 2018
The VPLP architects, together with Lagoon and the Nauta Design office, succeeded beautifully in developing a new 45’ catamaran to replace the famous Lagoon 440 (more than 500 units sold). Of course, the irreplaceable qualities of the Lagoon 440 have been retained as a starting point: a steering station on the flybridge accessible from both sides of the cockpit, a forward cockpit, performance under sail … and an incomparable comfort in the saloon and the cabins. Larger and with a bigger sail area, the 450 F is offered in 3 or 4 cabin versions, and also benefits from important improvements in terms of safety, performance and cruising comfort.
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 new Lagoon 450 F.
