Lagoon 42 Notorious

While keeping a family resemblance and retaining the main features of the latest generation of Lagoons, it shows us a new path: unhurried evolution, a new “organic” approach, in search of harmony between living space and man.

An elegant silhouette, flowing curves which, by virtue of a noticeable acceleration of the lines in the bows and in the new coachroof design, emphasise the powerful and dynamic nature of this new model… A VPLP design naturally, a guarantee of performance under sail!

Cruising catamarans are not to everyone’s taste, but the pros and cons versus monohulls are well known. The Lagoon, however, enjoys more sympathetic styling than some of her contemporaries. Beneteau clearly has the financial muscle to indulge in some serious R&D before commissioning a new boat and it shines through in the Lagoon. She has been carefully and thoughtfully put together and represents a refinement and distillation of all its considerable experience in this field.

The helming station was a prime example of this approach, as it delivered most of the benefits of a bridge deck helming station without leaving the helmsman isolated, as is often the case with this arrangement. I was also impressed by the directness and ‘feel’ of the helm, which was a refreshing contrast with many cruising multihulls.
