On a First 27.7 from Saint-Malo with a group of friends. Sailed around the Channel Islands, had a good navigation!
We loved the Baltic Sea in Danemark, especially when we arrived in Copenhagen with its colorful houses. But Sweden and its canals were even better. Had the best time on board of our Oceanis 411!
We were able to do a few quotations with the customer service to find the best boat for our destination. We went for a Lagoon 450, really comfy for the family!
