Meet Yacht Pride
Yacht Pride was built in Bordeaux France in 2001. She is the 6th of 39 Lagoon 570's built. Her designer is the renowned design team of French multi-hull designers VPLP. Pride
was refurbished and refit in 2006 before placed into charter. Her design is unique to most multi-hulls as she is
designed to sail across oceans and to endure long voyages with grace and speed.
Pride not only sails extremely well but she is also beautiful. There is lots of care to details. Her interior has warm wood finish, and upscale luxury decor. Pride sails in complete
comfort, stable and dry.
Pride has 4 luxury Queen sized guest staterooms with private en-suite electric heads.
