Lagoon Catamarans: A Broad Overview
The name ‘Lagoon’ is well established in the yachting world, with a slick catamaran design that set the industry alight when it was first launched as Jeanneau, way back in 1957. The first vessels built were monohull and when Henri Jeanneau founded the boatyard, his original plan was to design and build power boats and the business was taken over by Beneteau, a French boat builder with the highest output in the world. They have facilities in France and the US; the US facility was founded in 1986 and as of 2017, the Marion facility had built 8,700 vessels, making them one of the busiest boatbuilders in the world.
World Class Catamarans
The world’s biggest boatbuilder, Lagoon makes a range of coastal and offshore sailing vessels, while most models are available in ‘owner’ or ‘charter’ versions, depending on your requirements. In 1999, we saw the amazing Lagoon 380 come onto the market and this model is by far their biggest seller, undergoing developments for more than a decade.
The Lagoon Range Includes:
- Lagoon 40 – At 10.9m (38.6ft), this is a great vessel with impressive speed and comes with 3 or 4-cabin options.
- Lagoon 42 – Designed by VPLP, the famous French boat designer. This 42-footer has a unique cabin layout, with a choice of 3 or 4 staterooms and an extra wide galley that can be open or covered.
- Lagoon 50 – If you want a large seafaring vessel, look no further than this superb catamaran with easy handling and a range of cabin design options. There is a wide selection of used and new Lagoon catamarans for sale from a very established yacht brokerage who have an excellent name in the industry.
- Lagoon SEVENTY 7 – The SEVENTY 7 is a 76.5ft catamaran with two Volvo engines that develop 180- HP. This is the flagship of the Lagoon family and a large part of the layout can be customised when you commission the vessel, with a combination of mixed levels and luxury fittings.
The majority of owners prefer to buy a used Lagoon boat and if you search online for a prestigious yacht broker, they would have a diverse inventory of Lagoon boats and when you find something that interests you, the broker can arrange for sea trials and an inspection. Of course, you would be given details of the boat’s complete history, including maintenance records and any add-ons that have been installed. Click here for more information about luxury yachts.
