A MAJOR (R)EVOLUTION IN CRUISING CATAMARANS The 52 is the result of in depth discussions between the architects at Van Peteghem-Lauriot Prévost (VPLP), the Italian Nauta Design agency and the Lagoon design department. They led us to innovative and sometimes radical choices in terms of elegance, comfort, user-friendliness and, it goes without saying, performance under sail.
“For the last ten years, we have gradually been moving the masts on our racing boats further aft, thus centering the weight more evenly and improving the performance of the sail plan. The 52 is one of the first cruising catamarans to benefit from this development.’’
“Our main objective has been to improve the use of space, providing sober, bright and comfortable living spaces, to suggest the “just like home” feeling for the owner and for the guests on board. The use of continuous horizontal lines without interruption gives the interior more fluent and harmonious open spaces.’’
The collaboration between Nauta Design and Lagoon is easily detected in the association of geometric forms with luxurious, ‘‘warm’’ materials, while optimizing the use of space. Whatever number of cabins you choose (3, 4, 5 or 6 ), each has its own personality and a private bathroom with independent shower.
Lagoon offer three levels of equipment: Essential, Cruising or Comfort depending on the taste and the sailing schedule of the owners … Essential: the indispensable options to enjoy one’s Lagoon to the full for an accessible price. Cruising: extra equipment for a bit more comfort. Comfort: equipped for long distance cruising, your Lagoon includes all the equipment required for a prolonged and distant cruise.
The 52 marks a whole new era in the design of cruising catamarans, as indeed did its predecessor, the famed 500.
With its diamond-shaped vertical bows, bevelled hulls, its as if levitated deckhouse and tall rig, the 52 is no ordinary catamaran, but its originality goes a great deal further than just its "outer" appearance, or even its interior layout.
This Lagoon is the result of lengthy discussions between the architects at Van Peteghem-Lauriot Prévost (VPLP), the Italian Nauta Design agency and the Lagoon design department. These discussions led us to make some important and sometimes radical choices, while remaining faithful to what we believe in, in terms of elegance, comfort, safety, user friendliness and, it goes without saying, performance under sail.
The 52 is now available in 2 versions: FlyBridge or SporTop.
