Lagoon 52F

LAGOON 52 F – LUXURIOUS AND CONTEMPORARY

Naval architect: VPLP Design
Exterior design: Patrick le Quément
Interior design: Nauta Design

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.

EXTERIOR DESIGN

ELEGANCE, COMFORT AND SAFETY

the boat is accessed via open aft transoms, facilitating boarding and disembarking
broad sidedecks, with recessed deck hatches
the cockpit is level with the saloon, and has an outdoor lounge and sun-lounging area to starboard
the fly bridge is reached either by a staircase leading from the cockpit, or by another leading from the deck on the starboard side
the steering station can be adjusted to three different positions (starboard, centre or port), giving the skipper perfect visibility under sail or when manoeuvring

INTERIOR DESIGN

COMFORT, SPACE, LIGHT…

the saloon encompasses the lounge and dining table to starboard, a large galley in U shape on port side the chart table in the middle, facing out to sea.
the “U” galley is equipped with large hot plates, large work space and plenty of storage
the circulation in the salon is optimized, between the lounge and the galley
all the cabins have large double beds, storage space in keeping with the offshore sailing program of the boat and, of course, an en-suite bathroom with separate shower
the cabins have incomparable natural lighting thanks to the fixed hull windows, together with excellent ventilation thanks to the deck hatches and portholes that open out to the hull-side or to the cockpit

ACCOMODATIONS: 3, 4 or 5 cabins

PERFORMANCE AND USER-FRIENDLINESS

The decision to locate the mast further to aft directly comes from the designers’ racing experience and has many advantages on a cruising catamaran: a large forward triangle allows a larger sails choice: a promise for great performance
the shorter boom makes the mainsail much easier to maneuver
the mainsail, which is relatively narrower and higher, benefits from better winds at the top, thus enhancing performance

by re-centering the weight in this way, pitching is considerably reduced
