“Flying Cat” is a Lagoon 440, the very latest design and technology to come from the Beneteau factory.
Lagoon 440 is the best example when you consider seating ergonomics, space, spread of storage compartments, ease of manoeuvrability. At first glance, the Lagoon 440 reveals a high level of finish combined with a strong sense of practicality. On deck, the roof lines are crisp, overall shape is dynamic, ergonomics and use of space are maximized. A raised steering station offers 360-degree visibility and the deck layout is designed for easy use, safety, and comfort. Large, bright, and located in the starboard aft section of the salon, the galley contains plenty of storage space, a fridge, a 3-burner stove, and spacious stainless steel countertops. The design is akin to a home kitchen.
Fast, seaworthy, comfortable and luxurious, with ample wood panelling, it is resolutely designed for the future. Its main innovative features include: Interior accommodation: a spacious master's apartment, and in a world first for sail boats, large glazed areas in each cabin that are barely visible from outside. Deck: a high helmsman's position on which all controls are centralised; a rigid bimini top; a very spacious aft cockpit and a generous fore cockpit for enjoying an aperitif at anchor or for listening to music with friends as the sun goes down. Performance: a new hull shape to minimise pitching and allow maximum speed; a very high sail area / displacement ratio for this size of boat.
The exterior salon offers seating for up 8 and is the perfect spot for cocktail hour and dining.
