France’s Lagoon has been busy of late, recently launching its brand-new Lagoon 55, now doing a publicity tour of the Med.
Replete with living space, the boat presents an unmistakable profile, sporting a hardtop that shields the flybridge and helm station from the weather and makes for a tall, triple-stacked silhouette.
NautaDesign, which was responsible for the Lagoon 55’s interior, also made a point of creating as a feeling of space belowdecks as possible. To that end, extra-large windows and skylights were added to bring the outdoors in.
Construction is in polyester with an anti-osmotic resin included in the laminate to ward off blistering. The hulls, deck and coachroof are all infused, with a balsa core in the deck and a solid layup below the waterline.
Spars are aluminum, a self-tacking jib comes standard, and a fully-battened square-top mainsail is available as an option for those in search of additional power. For more information, visit Lagoon at https://www.cata-lagoon.com/en.
