Lagoon 46 Of Helm Yachting is the best seller among the sailing catamarans of the French brand, thanks to its elegant lines combined with functionality: it is impossible not to be watched while you sail.
This layout will make sailing enthusiasts very happy thanks to the very easy operations to perform: self-tacking genoa and central helm station raised on the flybridge. With its double access, the Flybridge is dedicated to both maneuvering and relaxation: 4 large sunbeds just behind the Captain complete the equipment on the 3rd floor.
The set-up of the Lagoon 46 catamaran is very classic: two classic "sea" areas, one forward with nets and sofa area and one aft, a complete cooking area forward, together with a large saloon capable of accommodating a dinette divided into 2 areas: one closed with kitchen, table for 6 and captain's table, plus an external area with an additional table for 6 people + long sofa and aft sofas. No boundaries between inside and outside thanks to a large retractable French door.
Its strong point is certainly the quality and comfort of the cabins: the interior embraces a refined, elegant and functional style. Even the 4 double cabins adopt impressive volumes, in particular the front cabin where the bed is now as comfortable and spacious as the aft cabins. The extraordinary quality of life on board is guaranteed by an accurate finish and internal lighting and an air conditioning system for cabins and dinettes. (people in 4 double cabins, 2 in the dinette and one in the bow (in the absence of a Skipper), guarantee ample livability for up to 11 guests.
The bow has a traditional design: a large net offers the best solution for true sailing lovers (and for children's games), without however compromising the possibility of enjoying an aperitif on the comfortable sofas with a small table, just behind the nets.
As previously mentioned, the dinette also has an outdoor area (closable with separate curtains in case of bad weather) with a table for 6 people and a long sofa at the aft end, plus a long "dormeuse".
With its double access, the Flybridge is dedicated to both maneuvering and relaxation: 2 large sunbeds right behind the Captain and 4 seats next to him complete the set-up of the flybridge of this impressive sailing catamaran.
The prevailing winds around the Aeolian Islands during the summer tend to be from the NW or NE, although, in calm weather, light sea breezes from any direction can be encountered blowing between the islands.
While rare, storms are not unheard of during the spring and early summer and careful forward planning is required as there are only two harbors that offer adequate shelter.
