The new Lagoon 55 (16.56 x 9.00 m) has finally been launched.
For catamaran lovers, the name of this model will certainly evoke fond memories: the Lagoon 55 was in fact the very first Lagoon to have been launched, back in 1987. With naval architects Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot-Prévost (VPLP design) at its side, Lagoon gradually became the undisputed leader in the leisure catamaran market. 34 years later, there are more than 6,000 Lagoon catamarans sailing all the seas of the world…
It is difficult to compare the 1987-built Lagoon 55 and the Lagoon 55 of 2021 (even though designers are always the same: VPLP, with exterior design by Patrick le Quément and interiors by Nauta Design), as innovations have changed the hulls and interior layout. Howver, we can say that Lagoon has remained faithful to its roots and values: to offer a safe and comfortable catamaran to travel far.
It’s difficult to compare the Lagoon 55 of 1987 and the Lagoon 55 of 2021, as innovations have changed the hulls and interior layout. However, we can say without any doubt that Lagoon has remained faithful to its roots and values: to offer a safe and comfortable sailing yacht, to go far and travel. A yacht where life is good.
At first glance, the striking innovation on this new, just-launched Lagoon 55 is the aft area which has been totally redesigned to offer optimal circulation on board, creating a vast terrace on the sea. The cockpit is totally open, giving a panoramic and uninterrupted view, while the aft zone has been conceived both for easier access and also to become real additional living spaces.
Emphasis has also been placed on light and ventilation, with overhead windows in the coachroof complementing the large vertical ones, creating that “open air” effect so dear to Massimo Gino, the interior designer (Nauta Design): “Opening the interiors to such an abundance of natural light allows for a seamless connection with the landscape and the natural environment”.
Available in 4, 5 or 6-cabin versions, with large private bathrooms whatever the chosen configuration, the Lagoon 55 offers impressive volumes, bringing real added value compared to the Lagoon 52 that it replaces in the range.
The new Lagoon 55 will soon cast off for a long series of sea trials. She will stop at La Grande Motte International Multihull Boat Show, in southern France, for her world debut in late April. Later, she will sail around the Mediterranean.
