PLAN & OVERVIEW
VPLP architects, in partnership with Lagoon and the celebrated Nauta Design studio, have been brilliantly successful in creating the Lagoon 450. It is a very popular charter yacht and you should be booking early if you want to sail one during high season.
This boat features infusion-moulding, which saves much weight (speed), serves a best possible structure, while protecting the environment and shipyard workers. The Lagoon 450 F has a steering station on the fly bridge with safe access from both sides for perfect visibility and a large sunbathing area. The saloon and cabins are exceptionally well lit from natural light, thanks to large glazed panels on hulls. Most of our Lagoon 450’s includes a water-maker, a 230 AC generator and air-conditioning.
The steering station is on the fly bridge and has safe access from both sides for perfect visibility. There is also a large sunbathing area. The spacious cockpit is on the same level as the galley, ideal for outdoor meals.
Inside you find elegance and functionality in the saloon and cabins. The cabins are exceptionally well lit with natural light thanks to large glazed panels on hulls.

WINING & DINING
Your holiday will include a wonderful mix of meals at island tavernas and succulent meals on board.
Menus aboard are created based on the local cuisine your personal preferences and the fresh ingredients we find in local markets on the islands — there is no standard menu. Every meal is designed to suit your dietary likes and needs.
Before your holiday we’ll ask you to complete a dietary preference to tell us what you like and dislike, and of any dietary restrictions, you and your guests may have.
We’ll also ask what you like to drink, and stock the yacht with your favorite beer, wines, liquors and soft drinks.
Depending on your preferences, we might serve local fruits, juices, freshly brewed coffee and a selection of teas, plus cereals, yogurt and a variety of fresh bread and preserves.
Other options include Greek Pancakes served with Fresh fruit, Crispy Bacon, and Mushrooms, Local honey with yogurt and walnuts, and French Toast served with Fresh Fruit.
Lunches on board are served with Freshly Baked Bread and a Local freshGreen Salad.
Ice Cold Water and a choice of Soft Drinks, Beer or Wine to accompany.
Sundowners & Cocktails
As the sun starts setting, Walter gets creative with cocktails from his special Daiquiry to the classic Margarita as well as a selection of ‘Virgin’ Cocktails to appeal to all ages. Alexandra takes care of a selection of snacks to accompany Walters cocktail.
Most guests like to enjoy local foods in one of the many tavernas that the Greek islands are famous for.
If you feel like staying in or enjoy a night under the stars we are happy to serve dinner on board.
Most children enjoy our meals, but we can prepare special dishes for younger guests.
Favorites include freshly made Personal Pizzas, Chicken Nuggets, Blackbeard’s Burger, Caribbean Chicken Kebabs, and Pasta in Paradise.
If we stay on anchor we will prepare dinner on board or we can organize a BBQ on the beach.
The holiday cost varies according to season and destination but starts from € 5600 per week.
The Lagoon 450 is normally booked per week starting on Saturday. In low and mid season we can be more flexible with start and end dates and the duration of your trip.
A one-week sailing holiday can be combined with island stays, but to really enjoy the private sailing experience we recommend sailing holidays of two or three-week duration.
A minimum of 2 weeks is required to enjoy the full Mykonos-Santorini experience.
The holiday cost includes a skipper if you like a hostess/cook on board that will be extra €150 per day, VAT and cleaning. Two changes of towels and bed linen are included per week.
An addition charge is made to cover fuel and provisioning. This is called the APA (Advanced Provisioning Allowance) and averages around 15% of the holiday cost depending on the number of guests and your provisioning wishes.
At the end of your cruise the APA accounting is finalized and you receive a refund or an invoice to make up the exact amount.
To confirm your holiday booking a 50% downpayment is required, with the balance paid one month before departure.
Our cancellation policies can be found in our terms and conditions of booking.
