Hello everyone and those who've been waiting for new Lagoon 520 news.
I have visited the new Lagoon in Bordeaux on saturday in order to change my 500 to 520.
Let me put it this way,for the first time after a visit to a new boat
I didn't start dreaming or spent a sleepless night.
She looks little bit more agressive with soft knuckles at stern and bow shape is also good looking afterall I like her look more then 450 and 560.
Nauta design did well interior
job with good cabin
They carried the mast
backward,result is a pillar in the middle of the saloon
.First boat was equipped with self tacking genoa
,I think this is standard.Boom ends far from the end of flybridge,I dont know how one can reach to the end of the boom unless lowering it down which is impossible with large solid bimini
It's a strange feeling to steer the boat so close to mast
,lets say 2m away from it only and while hoisting the main should be difficult to watch its going up,The wheel
therefore can be moved to left-right
room is accessed through a hatch
,seems like you can not remove the genny unless you literally cut a bigger hole,very tight space,they also installed charger
,inverter and alikes which I didnt like since this part of the boat is getting wet most.
Entrance to aft port cabin
is only possible from cocpit by a lifting door,on a rough sea it might take spray inside to cabin.There are only 2 small cocpit lockers which was very dissapointing,also in forward there are only 2 not 4 like 500 has.
The optional painted davids are real nice and functional.
,also good looking its significantly smaller then 500.
lenght overall is 15.84
and light weight 56.658lb
