LAGOON 46

Here is the latest boat from Lagoon, a 46-foot catamaran which is going to have the difficult task of replacing the 450, the most-sold cruising catamaran, with 746 Fly versions plus around a hundred S versions in the water. After the 39 and the 52, then the 42, 40 and 50, the Lagoon 46 again uses the aft-positioned rig, which has shown its advantages and its potential. You will be able to discover the full test we carried out on the no1 prototype of the Lagoon 46 in this edition of Multihulls World. A boat which appeals through its volumes and accommodation, but one which also offers performance under sail and versatility which will appeal to family crews, cruising on the oceans…

NEW 45 FP

As is now usual, the new Fountaine Pajot catamaran is for the moment known under its code name ‘New 45’. It replaces the Helia 44 in the range, and the New 45 picks up the features of the latest boats from the builder (Lucia and Astrea). Aboard, we find an impressive volume, bathed in light and particularly pleasant to live in. The new steering position is both convivial – it is close to the cockpit, as well as the area called the Lounge deck, which is found on top of the coachroof – and practical, with all the control lines within reach. The forward cockpit is also a nice comfortable area, which should be popular in the anchorage. Finally, we find the genuine (optional) ‘beach’ offered by the hydraulic rear platform.

ITA 14.99

Discovered at the last Cannes Yachting Festival, the Ita 14.99 is a very beautiful ocean cruising catamaran, designed to be sailed by a couple or a shorthanded crew, while offering nice interior services and performance worthy of a powerful boat. Deep daggerboards, a generous sail area, high-tech construction in carbon-epoxy – the catamaran has enough to cover the miles at good average speeds. The no1 is in the water, and the nos 2 and 3 are under construction. Note the builder's choice to offer the boat as standard with hybrid electric propulsion (Oceanvolt). Test soon in Multihulls World…
