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 foresails.

She also benefits from new ideas and innovative technology, producing a catamaran that offers even greater comfort and performance - see below for a video clip of the Lagoon 42 under sail making 16 knots in 23 knots of wind.

Cruising World Boat Of The Year 2017

The Lagoon 42 has won a number of awards since its launch at the beginning of 2016.
