Master designers VPLP have moved the mast further aft guaranteeing performance under sail. The self-tacking headsail and the innovative layout ensure easy handling even when you’re sailing short handed.

There are just 2 steps up to enter from the stern and an entirely flat surface forward into the saloon for seamless indoor-outdoor living.

Ergonomic helm station at the coachroof bulkhead, offers:

*direct communication between the cockpit and saloon *improved circulation, forward and aft of the helm station, *direct access to the coachroof for easier access to the boom *composite bimini with a sliding panel to ensure a good view of the sails * closure panel for helm station safety when under you’re way.

Mast further aft offers many advantages on a cruising catamaran:

*a self-tacking genoa for ease of use *a larger foretriangle for a greater choice of downwind sails, *a shorter boom for ease of manoeuvring *mainsail broader near the head, taking advantage of less turbulent wind for a real improvement in performance *re-centring of the weight, which greatly reduces pitching.


* cosy elegant cockpit * single level from the aft platform to the saloon: a structural “revolution” * entirely new ergonomics that ensure excellent use of space and ease of circulation onboard * large glazed door that occupies the entire width of the coachroof, and provides access to the unparalleled internal volumes * suspended steps at the transom provide a whole new perception of the boat: a continuous, wide and inviting platform, worthy of a large vessel.


The 42 interior is defined by smooth, organic curves.

Italian design legends Nauta have created stunning curved wood finishes which deliver supreme elegance and outstanding functionality.

Buyers can choose between the 3 and 4 cabin versions.

3 or 4 superb double cabins…

*island double beds for the aft cabins and beds with side access for the forward cabins *aft cabins benefit from a bathroom with a separate shower *very large windows in the cabins offer excellent illumination and magnificent views of the surroundings *vertical glazing in the coachroof provides saloon illumination: a well-lit, comfortable environment that is perfectly balanced between the galley and saloon areas *U-shaped galley, fully fitted with broad work surfaces and extensive storage space, is oriented towards the external cockpit.

Lagoon expertise

* infusion and injection moulding: weight saving, optimised structure and protection of personnel and the environment *interior joinery in Alpi® reconstituted timber to increase the longevity of the woodwork and contribute to sustainable development *vertical glazing: better sun protection, optimisation of space and headroom *gullwing bridgedeck: greater comfort in heavy seas *central beam housing the forestay fitting, the anchor davit and the code 0 sprit pole.

Sail Magazine - Lagoon 42 Review

It seems Lagoon has hit the right note with the 42. Presumably, 80 percent of these new models will be sold to private individuals with the rest going into charter. With a bit more fuel tankage and the right suit of sails, the Lagoon 42 is a delightful kitty to cruise here, there and everywhere.

Yachting Monthly - Lagoon 42

She’s designed by the VPLP partnership, which knows a thing or two about performance sailing, but this boat is all about ease and convenience. She’ll trundle along at speeds a well-sailed, similar-sized monohull might be able to match, but most multihulls won’t give you that ‘part of the boat’ feeling you get through the helm on a well-trimmed monohull.
