Lagoon 52S


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.

The boat is accessed via large 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 cabin-top design creates a more elegant and punchier roof outline
a large sunbathing area on the cabintop

The sail areas are the same with the FlyBridge version. However, the lower mast and boom:
- reduces pitching
- makes the boom easier to access

The cabintop bulkhead fitted steering position includes the following:
- all maneuvers
- integrated comfortable helm station seat for 2 persons
- access from the cockpit and the sidedeck
- an optional extra safety system is also offered, with a tilting composite beam (optional) to close off the steering station in bad weather
- a composite bimini above steering area is available as an option



The saloon encompasses the lounge and dining table to starboard, a large galley forming a "U" to port 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


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
