Never before have we been able to see exponential growth in the market for multihulls, which are beginning to establish themselves firmly along our coasts as well, and not only in the charter market
(also because more and more marinas are offering catamaran moorings at the price of powerboat moorings). And indeed, we are seeing a proliferation of new models: the latest, in order of time, is the Lagoon 42 S, which will be unveiled at the upcoming Dusseldorf Boat Show (Jan. 23-31), but whose renderings already exist.

Born from the pencil of French studio Van Peteghem-Lauriot Prévost (VPLP), while retaining the main features of the Bordeaux shipyard’s latest generation of catamarans, the Lagoon 42 S opens to new horizons. This is revealed by the elegant silhouette characterized by flowing curves that, thanks to the acceleration of the lines perceptible in the beams and in the new design of the deckhouse, emphasize the dynamic and sporty character (without losing the maritime and “family boat” purpose) of this model. The hull is made with infusion and injection molding, the hull is gull-wing, and the forestay gear, mooring anchor, and Code 0 tangon can be connected to the center keel.

On deck, the far-rear mast and self-tacking jib offer the possibility of grouping all rigging in one place on the vessel, which benefits ease of handling in a small crew. The ergonomic wheelhouse, placed at the level of the deckhouse closure, ensures that direct communication with the cockpit and the saloon occurs, and there is direct access to the deckhouse for easy access to the boom. The bimini is composite with sliding panel to ensure maximum visibility on the sails. The cockpit, characterized by “soft” lines, is on one level from the rear platform to the saloon. A large window across the entire width of the deckhouse allows a connection of interior volumes.

The interiors are made in Italy, in fact they were designed by Nauta studio: two versions are available, with 3 or 4 double cabins. In the three-cabin version, the master stateroom is in the port hull: king-size bed, central area/study, and forward bathroom with separate shower stall. To starboard two doubles each with its own bathroom with shower. In the four-cabin version (great for charter), the configuration of the two hulls is mirrored. The U-shaped galley in the saloon, equipped with large work surfaces and numerous compartments, faces the outside cockpit.
