NEW-Lagoon 50

The Lagoon 50 is a brand new catamaran presented for the first time to the public at the Cannes show last September. In the builder’s range, the 50 sits in between the 450, versions F and S, and the 52. Of course on this unit the rig is set further aft, common to all the new Lagoons and which offers a centering of the optimum weights and especially, great ease of sailing. But what strikes when boarding the new Lagoon 50 is of course the incredible living space and the impressive volume for a 50 footer. The catamaran is available in three, four and even six double cabins.

NEW-Gunboat 68

 

The brand new Gunboat 68 is currently under construction at the new shipyard in the South of France.  Designed by VPLP, this high-end unit picks up on the formula that made the success that is Gunboat - for example the sail-handling cockpit at the mast, forward of the coachroof.  But a Gunboat must be fast on the water. The 68 offers curved daggerboards, an epoxy carbon construction and featherweight yet with beautiful amenities including 4 VIP cabins with island beds and private bathrooms.  Other versions are also available with 5 and even 6 cabins.  Launch of hull number 1 scheduled for December 2018.

NEW-Leopard 50

The all-new Leopard 50 is currently being finished and will be showcased at the Miami Show for the first time to the public, and then at the International Multihull Show in April.  This 50 footer innovates because the yard is going to be offering two versions: the 50P (for Performance) is equipped with a traditional bimini, while the 50L (for Lounge) is equipped with a flybridge.  Of course, on both versions the forward cockpit is accessible from the saloon and they feature a very well designed deck plan for easy sailing maneuvers, even when short-handed. A lot of work has been done by the designers Simonis & Voogd Yacht Design, especially on the interior layout (the boat is available in 4 or 5 double cabin versions), and on ergonomics and living spaces in the saloon.
