We are in the process of ordering a 450F.
My wife and I went to the Barcelona boat show
and had an extensive tour on the 39, 42, and 450F. The 450F seems to be the sweet spot in space/price/equipment(after adding lots of options) for our purposes.
I understand people either love or hate the flybridge. We definitely are big fans of the flybridge. There's just one thing bugging me and that is the standard (big) bimini
& enclosures offered by Lagoon
. During the tour on the 450F I noticed the rail for the canvas
enclosure only extend until the stair of the flybridge (red line in below image) leaving a huge gap open (green) for wind
and rain to enter the cockpit
Here's a picture of port side:
Now, I've asked about this gap during the tour. The very polite lady told me the standard big bimini
+ enclosure together with the cockpit
enclosure offered by Lagoon
would be sufficient and make sure the cockpit is clear from wind
I've been searching this forum and used my best friend Google
, but can only find pictures of after market solutions that offer full enclosure like pictured below:
I cannot find a picture of the big bimini + full enclosure as offered by Lagoon.
Did anyone order their 450 with the big bimini + bimini enclosure + cockpit enclosure? Can you confirm that cockpit is protected by rain/wind? Possible share pictures?
Or should we ignore Lagoon's offering and go custom built/after market?
Thanks in advance!
