Lagoon 500 • It will be hard to miss the new Lagoon 500 at Annapolis this fall. The 51-foot-long, 28-foot-wide cat was designed by Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot Prevost for ocean crossings and luxurious cruising. They say it is as roomy as a house, but let us be honest, how many of us have dinner seating for 12 with ocean views at each setting?
The 500 has a raised steering station with full visibility and seating for six above the cockpit with secondary controls located at the forward-facing nav station in the main saloon. All lines are led to the bridge-deck, freeing the cockpit of lines and allowing for a refrigerator, washbasin and ample seating under the hard Bimini. Interior options include three-, four- and five-cabin layouts with the last option most appropriate for charter work, where Lagoon sends over 20 percent of its fleet.
