Two new La­goons

Yachting World - - Front Page -

When it comes to cruis­ing cata­ma­rans, 45ft is the most pop­u­lar length, ac­cord­ing to Yann Mas­selot, di­rec­tor at La­goon Yachts. Its two biggest sell­ers are the 450, of which it has built 600 in the past six years, and the 42, of which it has built 200 in the last 18 months alone. All of which points to the new La­goon 50 as an in­tel­li­gent model to plug the large gap be­tween the ex­ist­ing 450 and the 52, while the sim­i­larly styled new 40-footer com­ing out this au­tumn will re­place both its 39 and 400 mod­els.

De­signed by VPLP and Nauta, th­ese new mod­els stand out for their strong hor­i­zon­tal lines, ac­cen­tu­ated by the large hull win­dows that are re­cessed into the top­sides. Both yachts fea­ture square-top main­sails, large furl­ing fore­sails and self-tack­ing jibs – an eas­ily man­aged sailplan on a tall rig with a short boom.

The 40 is avail­able with three or four cab­ins and two to four heads. The 50 can have be­tween three and six cab­ins.
