The Lagoon 450 is being replaced with the Lagoon 46.
The Lagoon 450 is a very comfortable boat. There is plenty of comfortable seating and it sails well.
The Lagoon 450 comes with two helm options. The 450R has a much larger and higher set helm. There is seating for 6 to 8 at the helm and the view is amazing. It is a great layout for captains who want to have company while underway.
The boom on the 450F is very high to accommodate the flybridge so mainsail access is difficult. The 450S has better shelter from bad weather than the flybridge.
The flybridge is set very high and gives great visibility when anchoring and picking up mooring buoys.
The Lagoon 450F has winches spread across the flybridge which makes single-handing difficult but also gives the crew a lot of space to work. If you have an engaged crew, you won't have to be on top of each other to work together.
The 450F is a yacht you'll have to consider if you're looking for a bareboat charter in this size range.
