Marnie travels to Bordeaux to give you a tour of the incredible city, which is home to Lagoons ranging from 50-78 feet. If you are thinking about leaping into your next adventure with a Lagoon catamaran of this size and considering European pickup you might be wondering what to expect when landing in Bordeaux.
Whether you are wanting to travel directly to Bordeaux or taking a quick stop over in Paris, now only a 2-hour fast train away, this city is a major hub and easy to get to, and it has a lot to offer.
Aside from the CNB factory where the Lagoons are made, Bordeaux is a beautiful, ancient city. Some of the highlights include…
