Les Sables d’Olonne Tour

Marnie travels to Les Sables d’Olonne to give you a tour of the quaint town, which is home to Lagoons ranging from 40-46 feet.

Les Sables d’Olonne is also a town steeped in the tradition of sailing, home to the world-famous Vendee Globe solo around the world race, this is a place full of passion and enthusiasm for all things sailing.

Let’s take a moment to imagine yourself travelling here for the delivery of your Lagoon catamaran…
