A revolution in design from the industry leaders. Lagoon Catamarans have begun to reveal to the public some initial teasers of this long awaited development. TMG Managing Director John Cowpe commented “the project has been under wraps for a long time with thousands of development hours invested, as always Lagoon has had the best designers and interior experts on board throughout. This new 42 is seen to be leading the way in comfortable, ergonomically smart and easy sailing and we are excited to be showcasing a 42 at the 2016 Sydney International Boat Show.”
Defined by sleek curves and a ground breaking single level cockpit … this boat offers limitless possibilities for an enviable on water lifestyle.
Cosy cockpit, with smooth, elegant curves:
• single level from the aft platform to the saloon: a structural ‘revolution’
• entirely new ergonomics that ensure excellent use of space and ease of circulation onboard
• large glazed door that occupies the entire width of the coachroof, and provides access to the unparalleled internal volumes
• suspended steps at the transom provide a whole new perception of the boat: a continuous, wide and inviting platform, worthy of a large vessel.
Master designers VPLP have moved the mast further aft guaranteeing performance under sail. The self-tacking headsail and the innovative layout ensure easy handling even when you’re sailing short handed.
There are just two steps up to enter from the stern and an entirely flat surface forward into the saloon for seamless indoor-outdoor living.
Ergonomic helm station at the coachroof bulkhead, offers:
• direct communication between the cockpit and saloon
• improved circulation, forward and aft of the helm station
• direct access to the coachroof for easier access to the boom
• composite bimini with a sliding panel to ensure a good view of the sails
• closure panel for helm station safety when you’re under way.
Mast further aft offers many advantages on a cruising catamaran:
• a self-tacking genoa for ease of use
• a larger foretriangle for a greater choice of downwind sails
• a shorter boom for ease of manoeuvring
• mainsail broader near the head, taking advantage of less turbulent wind for a real improvement in performance
• re-centring of the weight, which greatly reduces pitching.
The influence of the organic architecture resonates in the interior volumes. Attractive moulded wood emphasises the smooth curves of the interior furnishings, designed with care by Nauta. Once again, the Italian design firm combines elegance and functionality, and offers us two versions of this new model:
Buyers can choose between the three and four superb double cabins ...
• island double beds for the aft cabins and beds with side access for the forward cabins
• aft cabins benefit from a bathroom with a separate shower
• very large windows in the cabins offer excellent illumination and magnificent views of the surroundings
• vertical glazing in the coach roof provides saloon illumination: a well-lit, comfortable environment that is perfectly balanced between the galley and saloon areas
• U-shaped galley, fully fitted with broad work surfaces and extensive storage space, is oriented towards the external cockpit.
Lagoon expertise – The technical excellence is one major key to their success and position as the world leaders in catamaran production:
• infusion and injection moulding: weight saving, optimised structure and protection of personnel and the environment
• interior joinery in Alpi® reconstituted timber to increase the longevity of the woodwork and contribute to sustainable development
• vertical glazing: better sun protection, optimisation of space and headroom
• gullwing bridgedeck: greater comfort in heavy seas
• central beam housing the forestay fitting, the anchor davit and the code 0 sprit pole.
