Lagoon 42: A Sleek Modern Design

NEW: Lagoon 42 – Launch at Düsseldorf International Boat Show 2016

Lagoon42A Sleek Modern Design

The Lagoon 42, the newest member of the Lagoon family (in late 2015), has a strong resemblance to the Lagoon 52. While it retains the main features of the new generation of Lagoons, it sports a beautiful and elegant silhouette. The mast was moved far aft to re-center the weight which greatly reduces pitching. With a self-tacking genoa and much smaller boom, sail-handling is made a lot easier for short -handed sailing or for a couple.

It is said that the square mainsail provides enough power, even if the sail is somewhat small. We will be investigating that claim during our test sails. The open transoms and one-level living space from cockpit into the saloon is new for Lagoon and provides a nice unobstructed living area. The saloon and cockpit are huge areas with lots of lounging space everywhere. The raised helm is closed in by a sliding door, similar to that of the 450S and 52S. The Lagoon 42 is yet another powerful and dynamic design by VPLP.
