There were five of us aboard, including Lucas Lafourcade, the captain, and Victor Buson, the engineer, who had only recently brought Hull No. 1 of the Lagoon 630 MY across the Atlantic from France on her own bottom — a telling achievement. Yann Masselot, Lagoon’s global director, was also aboard, along with Lana Lohe from the company’s Annapolis, Maryland, office. We spent a quiet night anchored in good holding ground, in a layout that was conducive to privacy and relaxation. This 630 MY was the lateral galley, four-stateroom version, meaning the galley was down in the portside hull along with two of the four staterooms, all with en suite heads.
