The Lagoon 52, marks a whole new era in the design of cruising catamarans, as did its predecessor, the famed Lagoon 500.
With its diamond-shaped vertical bows, beveled hulls, its deckhouse that appears to be floating and its tall rig, the Lagoon 52 is clearly no ordinary catamaran, but its originality goes a great deal further than just its "outer" appearance, or even its interior layout.
The Lagoon 52 is accessed via open aft transoms, facilitating boarding and disembarking. The cockpit is level with the main salon, and has an outdoor lounge and sun-lounging area to starboard.
In response to owner requests, Lagoon introduced the Lagoon 52 SporTop version, with a bulkhead steering station in place of the flybridge. All lines lead to the helm which has access from both the cockpit and the sidedeck.
This version is designed specifically for owners who prefer a more conventional helm station, and are also more suitable for sailing with a smaller crew.
The main salon encompasses the lounge and dining table to starboard, a large U-shaped galley on port side and the chart table in the center, facing out to sea.
All cabins have large double beds, storage space in keeping with the offshore sailing program of the boat, en-suite bathrooms with separate shower and all enjoy incomparable natural lighting thanks to the large hull windows.
