Lagoon 400 : A successful synthesis


With the 380 catamaran, Lagoon reinvented the culture of space aboard medium-sized catamarans; this model was world champion in its category in production (600 boats), but its performance under sail lacked a little punch. The Lagoon 400 catamaran has arrived in the middle of a crisis, and sent its two predecessors, the Lagoon 380 and the Lagoon 410, back to the drawing board! We spent three days aboard, to get to know it. Great!

Clear positioning of the range

Lagoon’s maturity and the support of the Bénéteau group have allowed production strategies and relevant choices of range to be adopted, despite economic difficulties. Covering the greater part of the comfortable catamaran market with 3 models (400-500-600) rationalises manufacture and stimulates marketing, whilst clarifying the message sent to potential purchasers.


A delicate succession

Taking over from two catamarans (Lagoon 380 and Lagoon 410) which have been leaders for 10 years is a challenge fraught with consequences. The means must be found to appeal in a very competitive segment, and fix an attractive tariff, capable of appealing to those who liked the two previous versions, with just one offer!


The search for balance

The Lagoon 400’s designers display noble ambitions: to progress with the strong points and reduce the inadequacies! Liveable volume, ergonomics and light form the major arguments for the 380-410; pushing back the limits still further, whilst improving performance and remaining competitive represented the aim to be achieved.
