CATAMARAN LAGOON MY40A great little cruising catamaran…
The majority of powercats on the market are high-powered luxury models. However, there is a growing demand for handy-sized habitable boats which are less speedy, but consequently have a better range and a lower fuel consumption. This is where the Lagoon 40 Motor Yacht comes in. We spent two days trying it out in the Mediterranean.
Motor Catamarans - a desirable market
In the early nineties, Jeantot Marine launched their Euphorie 40 and 44. They met with critical success, but the concept was based too much on the idea of transposing the theory and design of a motorboat onto a catamaran hull, and also the engines that they used limited their range. From the end of the nineties, Fountaine Pajot was the only company to have produced a range, and to have believed in the concept… And we had to wait until 2010 to see any renewed interest on the part of other builders.
