Nauta Design created the interiors of the range of models, while VPLP was responsible for their naval architecture. Their collaboration include Lagoon 39, 40, 400, 42, 450S and 450F, 50, 52S and 52F, 560, 620, 630 MY, Seventy7 and Seventy8.
With twin hull design and shallow draft, the 23.8m new flagship allows access to secluded bays and coral reefs. She comes with a range of 5,000nm fitted with Volvo D11 510hp engine.
The Lagoon 50 provides options of three to six-cabin layout. The flybridge provides two secure access at the helm station to the large open cockpit. It also features abundant storage under most cockpit and flybridge spaces.
VPLP positioned the mast step further aft, offering advantages including a shorter boom for easier manoeuvres and a main sail with a high aspect ratio, enabling the capture of a better airflow in the upper parts of the sail.
Her saloon provides two separate but cohesive areas: a large galley that opens onto the cockpit on one side, and a slightly elevated lounge area for enhanced vision over the water.
Lagoon 40 is also the brainchild of VPLP. She is available in three or four-cabin version.
With a new taller mast and an increased sail area of 81.3sqm, the 11.57m yacht is equipped with two Yanmar 29 or 40hp engines.
