The saloon on the Lagoon 450 F flows easily into the cockpit, and all the space is bright and open, so you hardly notice whether you are inside or outside. Each hull has two spacious guest cabins, each with a double berth, head and separate shower. The U-shaped galley shows the boat’s French heritage, with plenty of counter space, thoughtful details such as a dish drainer built into a cabinet, and lots of stowage in well designed self-latching drawers and cabinets. A second fridge makes stowing provisions a breeze.
The interior decor complements the layout nicely, with light wood and fabrics that create a clean, inviting appearance. It’s not dramatically hyper-modern, but comfortable and contemporary and all in very good taste.
The Lagoon 450 F is overflowing with deck space, one of the reasons these cats are so popular for chartering. The cockpit is larger than on the 440. It has comfortable seating all around and could easily accommodate a big dockside party. For those who feel lazy, there’s even a large reclining lounge where you could nap or daydream underway. The most noticeable difference between the 440 and the 450 is an inside passage between the cockpit and the flybridge that puts the sailing area in better communication with the passenger area. The two spaces are still distinct, a conscious decision by the builder.
It is the open air spaces that shine on this boat. Sunbathing space is on the foredeck, on the forward net (wonderful for watching the waves go by) and on the cabintop. Reserve one of the big lockers for a couple of gallons of sunscreen.
The Lagoon 450 F preforms well even in light winds. She tacks reliably and moves gently along on all points of sail. The boom is set high above the cabintop to clear the flybridge bimini, but the sheets lead to hand comfortably at the helm station, and an electric winch makes sail setting and trimming easy. Realistically, most skippers will start up the engines in light stuff, but it’s good to know that the boat will, if necessary, keep moving in near-drifting conditions without auxiliary power.
Painkiller is equipped with twin 45-horsepower Yanmar diesels engines fixed props. Close-quarters handling is very good. She will pirouette in her own water with the two engines pushing in opposite directions. The raised flybridge helm station has 360 degrees of perfect visibility making docking easy.
