|The VLVP architects, together with Lagoon and the Nauta Yachts design office, succeeded beautifully in developing a new 45' catamaran to replace the famous Lagoon 440 (more the 400 units sold)
Of coarse, the irreplaceable qualities of the Lagoon 440 have been retained as a starting point: a steering station on the fly bridge 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 Lagoon 450 is offered in 3 or 4 cabin versions, and also benefits from important improvements in terms of safety, performance and cruising comfort.

||The electric circuits are one of the vital systems on a modern cruising boat. With the help of its state-of-the-art CAD and layout software, Lagoon's Design Office has created electric circuits where quality, reliability, ease of access and maintenance, lightness and security are paramount criteria.
Security is a major consideration, so the entire electrical system used on the Lagoon catamarans is strictly compliant to the CE standards.
The quality of the cables, which are screened and laid in their own conducts and coded, the easy access to the distribution panels, are all essential elements to guarantee the Lagoons are equipped with an electrical system of the highest standard.
|Mast / Rigging
||The stresses on the rig of a catamaran are about ten times that of a monohull. The quality of the selected equipment is therefore of the upmost importance.
Lagoon has had a good working relationship for many years with suppliers renowned all over the world, as the best in their sector: Z Spars, Sparcraft, Mare'chal.
||Experience acquired in racing has enabled Lagoon to choose nothing but the best deck gear and rigging (Harken, Lewmar... )
The deck plan design, the choice of materials and the calculation of stresses is a precise work undertaken together by our architects, suppliers and the Lagoon design office. Each material has been subjected to extensive tests designed to select the most reliable, efficient and durable equipment. These tests take place in the aging chamber in marine mist of the Be'ne'teau group laboratory as well as at sea on racing boats
||The wide hulls offer more volume in the cabins with larger floor space. The saloon and cockpit spaces are well proportioned and the ease of access from one to the other is typical of the layout on Lagoons and always appreciated by their clients.|
