Commissioning and Customisation
We have recently completed the commissioning and customisation of this brand new Lagoon 55. The new owner wanted a number of bespoke modifications to enhance his planned on-water adventures and make his time on board more comfortable.
A keen diver, our client wanted all his diving equipment to be stowed safely and with easy access. So, we modified his forward sail locker with custom-built storage and securely mounted the four dive bottles. We also installed a diving air compressor in the lazarette to refill the bottles.
Upgraded electronics included the installation of a 43” TV and Blu-Ray/DVD player, BRNKL boat alarm and remote monitoring system, offshore cruiser 5G wireless onboard Wi-Fi internet system, additional AC sockets and USB outlets for ease of running appliances and mobile chargers, a wireless autopilot remote, and a 4 Cell Lithium battery storage solution with 10KW inverter charger system.
In the cabins, we laid new carpet and added mirrors to the aft bulkheads.
On deck, we provided a full set of new covers and enclosures, including consoles and table covers. And, to make getting on and off the catamaran easy, we supplied and installed a carbon fibre passerelle with trapeze and lifting/support arrangement. A new Highfield Sport 420 RIB with 60Hp outboard allows the owner to transfer from mooring to shore with ease.
With plenty of offshore sailing on the agenda, we supplied a complete set of offshore safety equipment, including a life raft, EPIRB, fire fighting equipment, jackstays, flares, and first aid kit – hopefully never to be used but essential nevertheless.
