This new sailing catamaran model from Lagoon, replacing the LG39 and LG400, has quickly become an international success story for Lagoon, as we have seen with the Lagoon 42, selling over 100 units within a few months of the official unveiling.
Master catamaran expert designers VPLP continue the chase after higher performance in cruising catamarans. A new taller mast, and a wing-shaped square top sail, make for a highly efficient sail plan. There is no doubt this new model is set to deliver similar, impressive speed results to the ground breaking Lagoon 42.
With her new visual identity, the 40 immediately stands out. While faithful to the image of Lagoon’s “DNA”, a new style is born: an individual, streamlined and accomplished design depicts her large portholes and panoramic view. This creates a refined and high-performance unit, emphasised by the tapered edge running from the bow to the stern. A new generation Lagoon, recognisable at first sight.
ELEGANT MODERN INTERIORS
A selection of luxurious materials, by Nauta Design, enhances the new interior lines.
A wide choice of accommodation layouts to meet the needs of owners and large families: available with three or four cabins.
A new aft cabin, fitted with a semi island bed berth and multiple storage spaces.
Large hull window glazing with integrated portholes in the cabin provide exceptional natural light and an outstanding view.
PERFECT FOR OUTDOOR LIVING
A comfortable cockpit looking out to the sea: a starboard dining table, able to accommodate up to 12 guests, a recreation area on the same side and seating at the rear beam.
An ergonomic helm station accessible from the cockpit or deck, thus enabling communication between the skipper and crew at all times.
Large aft transoms with a spacious swim platform, allow for simple access to the tender and safe, easy boarding. A forward cockpit, fitted with a sunbathing area, provides further living space.
MORE PERFORMANCE DRIVEN
A symbol of the new generation Lagoons, the sailing catamaran Lagoon 40 is endowed with advanced performance features: a VPLP hull structure and an increased sail area provide a better sail surface area / displacement ratio. The decision to position the mast step further aft, which stems directly from VPLP’s experience in competitive sailing, provides this catamaran with multiple advantages.
– Self-tacking jib for simplified maneuvers
– Large forward triangle for a wider choice of downwind sails: a guarantee of performance
– Shorter boom for ease of maneuvering
– Main sail with a high aspect ratio enabling the capture of better airflow in the upper parts of the sail for optimised performance
– Re-centering of weight thanks to aft positioning of rigging considerably reduces pitching
If you are looking for your first catamaran ownership and you need a stable, comfortable, well thought and easy to manoeuver yacht, the new Lagoon 40 is an excellent opportunity to access the sea in an easy, and stylish way.
