Quick Look: Lagoon 620

Jeremy McGeary reviews this catamaran with room for a party for the CW 2009 Sailboat Show.

Lagoon Catamarans

At 62 feet, the volume even in a catamaran's narrow hulls begins to get significant, and Lagoon cuts it up a number of ways in the Lagoon 620 to offer arrangements with as many as five double cabins or as few as three. All of them provide island beds and their own ensuite heads with stall showers. In one layout, the galley is in the aft end of the port hull, with access both to the saloon and to the deck through its own companionway.

Under the rigid aft-deck awning, which is an extension of the saloon roof, a large dining area is serviced by a wet bar. The cockpit, if that refers to the control station, is moved up to a fly bridge, creating another socializing zone.

Port and starboard helms give the skipper options when docking and for viewing the sails and the surrounding waters.
