A floating lodge luxurious enough to have you feeling as if you are spending your holiday in Poseidon’s castle in the middle of paradise. Does this sound like something you might be interested in? Then do not bypass this remarkable 2016 Lagoon 450 SporTop! Being launched in June of 2016, this incredible catamaran will arrive in Ibiza on the 15th of June for its first season at sea. With a length of 13.96m (45 feet) and a beam of 7.87m (25 feet), this stunning catamaran for charter in Ibiza and Formentera will leave you awestruck with its total surface area of 110m2.
As if the Lagoon 450 was not already an eye-catching catamaran on its own, the developers have listened to their family cruising customers and improved the possibilities for communication throughout the entire vessel. Combine that with the enhancements made in terms of safety, performance, and cruising comfort and I think it is safe to say that Lagoon truly knows what their clients want and how to please them! But do not take our word for it. Let us begin our small tour of the Lagoon 450 SporTop boat hire in Ibiza so that you can make your own judgement on it.
Interior of the Lagoon 450 SporTop
With woodwork of Alpi blond oak plywood and dark brown laminated Milano floors, this yacht has an average of 2.05m (6.73 feet) of standing headroom all through the interior. Once the sun has set and the natural light is no longer provided by the large windows that wrap around this beautiful boat charter in Ibiza, our LED ceiling spotlights will be sure to brighten the room. Just take a seat on the L-shaped bench for six and enjoy a scrumptious dinner on the large table provided, while you watch the moon shine and listen to the calmness of the night sea.
The U-shaped kitchen not only allows you to feel secure while sailing but also comes fully equipped with all your cooking necessities to have you feeling at home in no time. Facing outward, it may even trap you with the wonderful views of the Mediterranean that it provides. Just try not to get too distracted by the astonishing sights while using the 3 burner stove and oven grill or you might find yourself heating up leftovers in our microwave instead. Not only do these windows amplify your cooking experience, but washing the dishes in our double sink, that contains both a hot and cold water tap, might be more pleasant than ever imagined.
Along with the 130 litre fridge, on board you will also find bottle storage. Feel free to bring your favourite bottle of wine to celebrate a glorious day of sailing through the transparent waters of Ibiza and Formentera. That is not the only storage that this incredible yacht rental in Ibiza offers though. In the galley alone you will find an enormous amount of storage under the sink, in drawers, and even next to the cookie jar in the high cupboards. Add that with all the storage found in the salon and never again will you ponder how people can manage to live aboard a catamaran during their holiday.
Cabins of the Lagoon 450S
Inside this luxurious Lagoon 450 SporTop catamaran you will find a total of 3 double cabins, making the recommended maximum capacity 6 guests for overnight stay. The cabins are distributed two at port side and one at starboard, each with a double bed that has lateral access, night stands, and an en-suite bathroom containing a washbasin, a large manual toilet, mirrors, and a separate shower that offers both cold and hot water. As with the salon and galley, with the variety of shelves, compartments, and the hanging closet provided, you can be sure that the cabins aboard our spacious yacht hire in Ibiza have plenty of room to hold all the belongings you wish to bring along on this unforgettable experience at sea. Spending a day indoors, just you and your book, will not be a problem with the vast amount of natural light that comes in through the windows, hatches and portholes offered in each cabin. If the book gets too good to put down once the sun sets, there is no need to worry because each cabin also provides LED reading and headboard lights.
Still, the real treat of this catamaran charter in Ibiza is the cabin at starboard! Although it shares many qualities with the other cabins, as mentioned above, it truly expresses the statement “fit for a king or queen.” If you are looking for room, there is no need to look any longer! With the bathroom alone, the magnified space will have you forgetting that you are staying on board. In the cabin you will find two sofa seats with a dessert trolley on the side and a desk for any serious matter you must attend to while at sea. Not to mention that the additional window, and the abundance of natural light and fresh air that circulates, is very much welcomed.
As a bonus, the Lagoon 450 SporTop also allows our clients the utmost privacy while staying on aboard our outstanding boat for rent in Ibiza. For this reason, the skipper and hostess are provided their own cabins at the bow, which are entered through a hatch found in the exterior of the vessel. No need to worry, they are always available if you have any questions or concerns during your stay. Although not recommended, if you prefer not to have a hostess, and you are 7 guests, one of the cabins up front can be available to you during your stay upon request. Also, as a last resort, the sofa in the salon can transform into a double bed if more guests are staying. As we said earlier, although this could be done, this is not recommended for optimum comfort.
Exterior of the Lagoon SporTop 450
With its wide side decks and the direct communication between the salon, galley and cockpit, it is no doubt that the exterior of this marvelous Lagoon 450S was carefully designed with as much motivation and passion as was the interior. In this model, you will find that the helm is raised from the cockpit to allow a panoramic view that facilitates navigation for the captain but is not on a different level so that the entire group can still enjoy the days on board as a unit. To allow our guests to see from the eyes of the skipper, our catamaran offers a captain’s bench for two behind the large leather covered steering wheel. The helm is fully equipped with the most modern technology available today and provides the skipper with all the control lines and tools necessary to maneuver this rental boat in Ibiza efficiently from the helming station.
Want to chit chat with the captain but not miss a second of sunbathing? That is what the sun beds on the roof are for. Like the composite staircase that led to the helm from the cockpit, there is another small teak stairway with handrails that allows you to access the roof of the catamaran. Here, you will find cushioned hammocks to lie down on and enjoy the tangy smell of the sea. A better view than the one you will take in from this top section, I guarantee, you will not find.
For a little less adventure but just as much enjoyment, the cockpit of the Lagoon 450 SporTop offers a U-shaped bench with a removable table that can accommodate 8 to 10 people for a delicious fruit salad or an exciting game of cards. Protected by a hard top bimini, this large cockpit offers ample shade and can be used as a deck saloon. Available is also a comfy five seat bench and a splendid lazy boy that may be calling your name during siesta time. Once you have awaken from your welcomed nap, not too far away and accessible by the wide three step platform found at the stern of each hull and a swimming ladder at starboard, feel free to take a refreshing dip in the transparent waters of the Mediterranean where you can snorkel in search of brightly colored fish or even a camouflaged octopus.
As with most catamarans, the traditional trampoline with nylon thread is located at the foredeck. You will also be surprised to find a comfortable seating area here for you to hang out with a cold drink at hand. After a nice swim in the turquoise waters and a rinse off with the deck shower, this might just be where you decide to watch the beautiful sunset as your amazing day at sea comes to a close. Thankfully, there are still more miraculous days to follow!
