Tilting at the growing market for luxury catamarans, Lagoon Yachts is launching the second in its new very large line this spring, the Lagoon Sixty5
Measuring 20.55m length overall, a generous 10m at the beam and spanning three levels with a huge flybridge, the Lagoon Sixty5 is all about volume and offers up to six double cabins, each with their own heads.
