Have you ever wondered how catamarans get delivered from the shipyard to their home port? Well, they are not transported by road on custom vehicles with air suspended trailer like monohul yachts, but by sea. Here is the short story about our boat delivery – delivering our “Fantastic Four”!
To make sure the yacht arrives safely at its new destination, it is crucial to prepare all necessary documents , safety equipment, communicate with the shipyard and skipper who is in charge for delivering the yacht. The delivery crew sails 24 hours a day with only brief stops as necessary for fuel, provisions or to avoid severe weather conditions. Delivery from the Lagoon yard to Split Croatia takes ideally 20 days on the sea.
The month of February 2017 is time for our 4 new catamarans (Fantastic Four) to get delivered to our base in Marina Kaštela, Croatia. Our skippers are on their way to bring our four beauties from France, ports of Les Sables-d’Olonne & Bordeaux to the home port in Croatia, Marina Kaštela: Lagoon 620 “OPAL”, Lagoon 450F “ARCTIC PRINCE” , Lagoon 42 “MEERKAT” and Lagoon 42 “BESO DEL VIENTO” . It is so hard to be patient 🙂 – we are thrilled to see them lined up next to our other boats!

LAGOON 42 BESO DEL VIENTO & LAGOON 42 MEERKAT fallowed! Captains Zorislav & Neven really tested this new Lagoon model & they did not have anything to complain about. We hope we can report on more of these boat deliveries also in 2018! Big thank you to all who took part in this process!
