Southern Charm is a Lagoon 450F, with a helm station flybridge, it hits a sweet spot in terms of size. It is perfect for a family, a couple with guests or a large group of friends, yet easy to sail and maintain without a professional captain.
Southern Charm is currently in Conch Charters fleet in the British Virgin Islands and has excellent charter revenue from existing bookings.
This catamaran continues to be a very popular charter boat (particularly the flybridge version) and it´s one of the most popular mid-sized catamarans on the secondhand market.
The most striking feature of this cat is how much space you have outside! Aft there is a large cockpit covered by a hard top bimini that can easily accommodate everyone if you decide to dine outside in the evening Caribbean breeze. The flybridge, which can be accessed from either side of the cat features the helm station giving you great all-round visibility, plus a bench that can seat 6! All the control lines lead back to the helm with some meaty Harken winches to help you manage the sails.
Forward there is an additional U-shaped seating area plus a large trampoline area for those who want to soak up the sun whilst underway.
Each hull has two spacious guest cabins, each with a double berth, head and separate shower. For added comfort, each cabin and the saloon has it’s own air-conditioning control units, which can be powered by shoreside power or the onboard generator. 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 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 as well as the third fridge in the cockpit makes stowing provisions a breeze. To keep the three fridges running without draining the house batteries during the day, there are four solar panels fitted on the hard top bimini.
For such a big, comfortable boat, the 450 sails well. The Lagoon 450F performs well even in light winds. She tacks reliably and moves gently along on all points of sail.
The 450F is powered by two 57 HP Yanmars. She’s highly manoeuvrable under power helped by good visibility from the flybridge.
The 450 delivers high comfort and solid performance in a great value package.
