The Lagoon 42 is clearly a member of the "new Lagoon family" and features vertical bows, an apparently "freely-suspended" coachroof, the mast moved further aft, a high-aspect mainsail, a self-tacking jib and large headsails.
She also benefits from new ideas and innovative technology, producing a catamaran that offers even greater comfort and performance - see below for a video of the Lagoon 42 under sail making 16 knots in 23 knots of wind.
A single deck level from the top of the wide transom steps all the way through to the main salon allows comfortable circulation on board.
The Lagoon 42 has won a number of awards since its launch at the beginning of 2016.
In addition to awards in the UK and Asia, in the US the Lagoon 42 has been voted SAIL Magazine's "Best Multihull Cruising Boat 40 to 50ft" and won Cruising World's 2017 award for "Best Multihull Under 50ft".

The video-shoot of the Lagoon 42 (above) included a short section of the boat sailing at speed. Below is a video-edit of more of this footage showing the Lagoon 42 under sail making 16 knots in 23 knots of wind - without surfing. Truly impressive.
