New Boat Showcase
It’s boat show season, and this year there is a range of new boats hitting the shows from Newport to Miami. From a fun inflatable dinghy and a foiling racer to comfy cruisers, our editors share some of the exciting new designs.
The new Lagoon 50, with its seaworthy design and modern styling, is sure to be a hit in the charter market or with owners thinking of cruising off into the sunset. With interior layout options that include three, four and six cabins, there’s sure to be plenty of 50s sailing the Caribbean. A flybridge with a helm station provides perfect visibility, and behind the helm station, a huge modular seating area conceals a storage area large enough to store all the cushions and water toys. Even more outdoor living area can be found in the large open aft cockpit and dining area and a second foredeck cockpit lounge area and the trampoline. An innovative saloon concept on two levels features a large galley that opens onto the cockpit on one side and a slightly elevated lounge area with a panoramic view on the other.
