Lagoon recently passed the 500 mark for their 46 footer. This popular cruising catamaran continues to attract strong demand thanks to those ocean views from the flybridge, the open sundeck and high levels of comfort in the Interior. They have also launched an option for a furling boom.
Let’s take a look at the boat in more detail:
Naval architects VPLP have achieved a great balance between the different living spaces aboard the Lagoon 46.
With her front and aft cockpits, cooking area at the back, and a salon that is a home away from home, there are plenty of zones to hang out in.
Up top, the Flybridge has a double access port and starboard, and is another zone for relaxation as well as being the control centre when sailing.
Choose between a folding cabriolet or an automated Bimini for sun protection
Head forward, and you have the forward lounge tucked in behind the nets for sundowners.
Aft on the Lagoon 46, you can choose between classic stainless steel davits or an electrical hydraulic platform for your tender. The platform allows for easy access to the water at anchor.
Interior Comfort – a Home Away from Home
Nauta Design were in charge of developing the elegant interior. The owner’s suite is generously furnished and has an island berth. It’s spacious down here, with a sofa, desk and ample storage. The bathroom is huge with a separate shower.
The other cabins aboard are also roomy, especially the forward cabin which also has a large bed.
Up top, the saloon area runs through to the aft cockpit and is light and airy.
VPLP are known for designing boats that sail, and they have done a great job evolving the Lagoon 46 from her predecessors.
She’s a seaworthy, forgiving boat.
Boom Furler Option
Lagoon recently announced that they are offering a boom furler option on the 46.
This is a simple, robust solution designed to make the Lagoon 46 even easier to sail.
One of the main advantages of the Lagoon boom furler is that the furling mandrel is not enclosed in a housing. So you can watch and control hoisting, reefing and furling manoeuvres.
The Lagoon 46 is a bestseller in the cruising catamaran segment and it is easy to see why. This is a very comfortable, seaworthy boat that has been optimised for easy sailing with many different relaxation zones to enjoy at anchor, including that iconic flybridge.
