Sip Sip Description

Sip Sip Ideally suited for charter, this Lagoon 62 offers an open, convivial layout and ample space for relaxation both on and below deck. Stepping into Sip Sip´s teak-decked cockpit, you´ll find large banks of seating, a wet bar and a spacious table for al fresco dining. Wide, well-protected passageways provide easy access to the bow area where you can lay back and unwind, suspended over crystal-clear water. Returning aft, a neat companionway leads up to the flybridge where, in addition to seating and sun pads, you´ll find a drinks cooler and pilot station with twin helms . With spectacular views from its elevated position, this is the perfect place to enjoy sundowners feeling you´re on top of the world. Inside the full-beam saloon, wrap around windows create a light and airy atmosphere with two separate seating areas. Adjustable coffee tables raise and fold out, joining together so they can be used for dining, served from the galley hidden away below deck. This yacht has been designed to maximize both luxurious comfort and connection with the outside world, and each queen-sized bed is raised up to provide far-reaching views across the water. All cabins have been finished to a high standard and have beneath-bed storage, hanging space and dedicated ensuites. The master cabin is particularly spacious with a private relaxation area containing a sofa and television, plus an additional screen beside the bed. Launched in 2010, Sip Sip underwent a substantial mechanical refit in 2020, which included the installation of new engines, generator and air conditioning units, and her interior has also received extensive refurbishment.

Corné Francois Coetzee

Chris is an all-round water sports enthusiast who enjoys surfing, kite surfing and wakeboarding.
