Lagoon were to first catamarans to introduce the now highly sought after flybridge. So… with more people than ever opting for their own flybridge catamarans, we thought we ought to see why customers are loving them…
Not only does the flybridge give you more fresh air and higher visibility but you will feel completely in control of your vessel at all times.
You’ll find that most of the time you’ll simply set the sails and cruise on autopilot but as many experienced sailors will attest, when you really need to be in control of your vessel in adverse conditions the flybridge is the place to be.
The flybridge gives your catamaran another dimension and an additional place to socialise and enjoy, those that have it cannot imagine life without it …
Martin is currently sailing around the French Polynesian, Tuamuttos islands on his Lagoon 450F.
For Martin, the purchase of his 450F was a first for many things; his first flybridge, his first catamaran and the first time he had ever sailed on the flybridge. He admits that at the beginning of his search, he was not completely aware of the big advantages of the flybridge.
The benefits he now has come to love is the big sundeck roof and that as a skipper, you have an area for complete control for trimming sails etc. Martin loves that this also gives him the ability to relax while the crew can do whatever they please upstairs or downstairs.
Martin cannot fault the flybridge and would always choose this option. “I love the air on the flybridge, the overview when going into anchorages, harbours etc. Its’ like standing on the bridge of my own little ship,” says Martin.
John Buist bought his first Lagoon in 2008 and along with his loving wife Jill he set off around the world. So in love with the adventures they had enjoyed, they decided to buy a new Lagoon 450F from TMG and do it all again!
For John, the addition of the flybridge is something he loves and will never regret …
“It’s all about space and comfort. It’s just so much more comfortable with the flybridge. Give me the flybridge any day!
The flybridge gives a new dimension, it gives you more space and you can actually get away from each other. You’re not in each other’s face.
It’s not just a little seat up here … it’s a nice big bench seat; I’ve even slept up here!”
Due to the resounding response from customers in favour of the flybridge option for their larger vessels, the NEW Lagoon 46 now comes exclusively with the flybridge layout. The first of many just arrived in Sydney for the International Boat Show, fitted with an optional hard top allowing for additional protection.
With so many now sold those planning on 2021 launches are now booking slots for then and beyond ...
