It’s been a busy period for Simpson Marine, which has recently reported sales of the first Lagoon Sixty 5 in Asia into Hong Kong, set for an August delivery; and the first unit of the brand new Lagoon 55 in Asia, which will arrive in China this November. 

The Hong Kong-based dealership and brokerage is also hosting two official premiere previews in Hong Kong this July.

The Lagoon Sixty 7 was first unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2019. This 20.2m power cat has a distinctive ‘Bordeaux’ red hull and is the smaller sister of the flagship Lagoon Seventy 8. 

She is designed for both open ocean and coastal cruising and offers a choice of between four and six cabins, as well as a flybridge design that can be arranged in a bespoke layout. Elegant, open interiors come courtesy of VPLP & Patrick Le Quement & Nauta Design.

She is making a stopover in Hong Kong on her way to her final destination in Taiwan.

The “luxury performance” First Yacht 53 is a fast-spirited boat that can be enjoyed over long distances or technically challenging courses, features a slender hull, high-end deck fittings, T-bulb, rigorous weight study and twin rudders to guarantee excellent hull control. 

The living spaces are designed for comfort, with white lacquered wood against classic teak. A cosy saloon has facing seats for up to six people. The voluminous owner cabin has carefully selected fittings: large port shower with teak seat, port head, large backlit hanging lockers, a chest of drawers and island bed.

In order to strengthen its offering for large luxury monohull cruisers, Beneteau has taken the hull of its First 53 and repackaged it to create the family-friendly cruiser Oceanis Yacht 54.

The design work on the Oceanis Yacht 54 was completed by Roberto Biscontini (naval architecture) and Lorenzo Argento (interior and exterior designer), whose brief was to create a comfortable yacht, with luxury finishes, which offers fluidity in movements on board and manoeuvres under sail.
