With its slender hulls and sculptural curves, the Lagoon SIXTY 5 has rightly earned its place in the world of luxury sailing yachts. The secret of its beauty lies in the sensual lines. They are an alliance of both tradition and modernity that orchestrate its generous proportions.
On board the SIXTY 5, the flybridge is a key space that is accessed via wide, safe stairs. Electric sliding doors give the option of this space being fully enclosed as required. The SIXTY 5’s flybridge is a beautifully appointed deck with two helm stations. One on each side, for clean, unobstructed views. The rigid bimini is fitted with see-through glass. It allows the skipper to keep an eye on the sails when they are hoisted up. The flybridge is home to a huge, comfortable and sleek looking sofa. You will also find spacious storage lockers underneath the sofa and a reclining backrest. A large dining table and another wet bar with a plancha grill, fridge and cutlery lockers, complete the picture.
When on board the Lagoon SIXTY 5, you can look straight through fore to aft and out over your surroundings with commanding 360° views. Her elegant interior is by Nauta Design, and demonstrates the new signature “Connect” outfit from Nauta. The main saloon is comfortable and luxurious with open spaces and natural light. The same design concept has been applied to the guest cabins. They enjoy good overhead height and excellent natural light and views. The high level of finishing throughout every cabin reflects the luxury feel of the main saloon.
The bright and spacious saloon is located forward. It has a design palette that includes grey oak and beige upholstery for the sofas. A large dining table is positioned on the starboard side, with a u-shaped sofa and lounge area with a low coffee table on the port side. This first hull has a galley-down layout with four cabins. It delivers the massive main deck saloon space for guests to enjoy. From the saloon there is direct access to the foredeck terrace. This area offers features sofas, a coffee table and an optional canopy shade that can be installed on to stainless pillars. This space is also ideal for storing diving gear.
