Lagoon 51 - The genoa makes a comeback!

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

This choice is far from an obvious one: in terms of outright performance, the “old” configuration is better. But when it comes to propelling a relatively heavy catamaran in cruising mode, this translates into a very tall rig, XXL-dimensioned coachroof reinforcement, and a jib that is a challenge to trim properly...  The Lagoon 51, despite the mast being 4¼ feet (1.3 m) shorter, will have a sail area that is barely any smaller compared to that of the 50 - whose hulls and part of the deck layout it assumes. Also, the new model will come in at almost a ton less in displacement. The flybridge of the 51 becomes a real living area, featuring reversible helm rests. Numerous solar panels are in evidence, and these are custom cut to reconcile aesthetics and efficiency (3,400 Wp). The hulls have been lengthened to offer wide sugarscoops, that can be extended by the hydraulic platform. Access from the dock is now much easier. Inside, the disappearance of the Lagoon 50's imposing mast support strut benefits the new nacelle, which is finished in Alpi sand oak. Customer feedback on the 50 (of which 300 units have been built and sold!) has allowed Lagoon to rework 70 points, such as the holding tanks, which are now gravitational (and not under the floors). The standard layout retains one owner's cabin, to starboard, and three guest cabins to port - other layouts are available. We also notice that the price offer is simpler and clearer, with 80 HP motors proposed as standard. Lagoon is also strengthening its CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) processes with upholstery made from 100% recycled materials and hulls constructed using hemp fiber and partly biosourced resin. Her world premiere is scheduled at the International Multihull Show from April 20th to 24th, 2022.
