ACCESSIBILITY AND OPERATION
Moving around the boat is easy and safe. The decks are wide with flush hatches and there are built in handholds around the coach-roof. The sugar scoops are cut away inboard and makes transfer to and from the dinghy much easier. Up forward there is easy transfer across the trampoline and at the helm-station you have a walkway behind the helm seat that makes cockpit to deck movement a breeze.
At the helm, all the Yanmar engine controls and the B&G instrumentation are ergonomically laid out and the sail controls easily accessible. There is plenty of room for two people and the design makes sailing this boat shorthanded a joy. The power winch on the coach roof is perfect for hoisting the mainsail and also comes in useful when operating the dinghy davit. Access up to the boom is via a couple of steps; the boom itself is low and makes stowing the mainsail and zipping the stack-pack straightforward.
Having the raised helm neatly integrated with the cockpit makes communication up and down easy, and also means the helm has great visibility: forward and importantly aft, especially useful if docking stern to. The composite bimini has sliding hatches, so seeing aloft and setting sails is simple. Roll-down clear screens are available for protection should the weather not be cooperative.
PERFORMANCE UNDER SAIL AND POWER
Under sail the boat feels balanced. The sixty-seven foot mast is set slightly further aft than on previous models, this reduces pitching but also allows for a self-tacking genoa set on a curved genoa track. The mainsail, set on a shorter boom is just under 600 square feet, so slightly smaller than you might expect but is easy to handle, and balanced by the larger than usual foresail. The two sails work well together and off-wind delivered over 8 knots average in 17-19 knots true in slight chop.
This boat includes the upgraded Yanmar 57HP engine option. You can expect 8-10 knots at 2600rpm in fairly smooth water.
The cockpit is spacious and has an option for an additional fridge. At the transom there is a new davit design for Lagoon that is capable of lifting up to 440lbs. That’s easily enough for an average 11ft dinghy and a 15HP outboard.
The gullwing bridge-deck offers greater comfort in bigger seas and with the anchor running over the forward crossbeam, anchoring and the attaching the bridle is easy.
The sliding door to the saloon opens wide and connects the cockpit with the saloon on one level. The U shaped galley has a three burner stove, extensive workspace and storage. Fridge, freezer and microwave are all neatly integrated. The central chrome covered mast support provides a great hand-hold when on the move, but also allows for a large forward lounge area with plenty of seating. The high vertical saloon windows provide great light and panoramic views and plenty of headroom. Two neat opening windows forward give generous ventilation at anchor. It is a very enjoyable and comfortable living space.
In the hulls, the Italian Nauta Design delivers elegance and functionality. Large fixed hull windows provide wonderful light and opening port-lights add ventilation. In the four cabin version the aft cabins have double island berths and the bathrooms offer saltwater electric heads and separate shower area. The forward berths are doubles with neat side access and have their own combined head/shower. Each cabin has AC plugs and optional USB charging points. Both versions offer extensive storage throughout.
The deck and hull are constructed using infusion and vacuum injection; a process which provides high quality composite, optimizes weight saving without compromising strength, and is also better for the environment. The interior furniture is made of robust resin infused reconstituted wood: Alpi®, allowing a wide range of shapes with high quality, long lasting handcrafted finishes, as-well-as contributing to environmental sustainability.

A SLEEK, MODERN DESIGN.
This new member of the Lagoon family has style and a strong personality.
While keeping a family resemblance and retaining the main features of the latest generation of Lagoons, it shows us a new path: unhurried evolution, a new "organic" approach, in search of harmony between living space and man.
An elegant silhouette, flowing curves which, by virtue of a noticeable acceleration of the lines in the bows and in the new coachroof design, emphasise the powerful and dynamic nature of this new model… A VPLP design naturally, a guarantee of performance under sail!
A COSY COCKPIT, WITH SMOOTH, ELEGANT CURVES
- a single level from the aft platform to the saloon: a structural "revolution",
- entirely new ergonomics that ensure excellent use of space and ease of circulation on board,
- a large glazed door that occupies the entire width of the coachroof, and provides access to the unparalleled internal volumes.
- The suspended steps at the transom provide a whole new perception of the boat: a continuous, wide and inviting platform, worthy of a large vessel.
AN INGENIOUS DECK LAYOUT
The mast moved further aft and the self-tacking jib, a guarantee of performance under sail and ease of handling, provide the ability to bring all operations together in one place.
AN ERGONOMIC HELMING STATION
At the coachroof bulkhead, offering many advantages:direct communication between the cockpit and saloon, improved circulation, forward and aft of the helming station, direct access to the coachroof for easier access to the boom, a composite bimini with a sliding panel to ensure a good view of the sails, a closure panel or helming station safety when under way.
3 or 4 double cabins … and what cabins! Island double beds for the aft cabins and beds with side access for the forward cabins, the aft cabins benefit from a bathroom with a separate shower, very large windows in the cabins offer excellent illumination and magnificent views of the surroundings, the vertical glazing in the coachroof provides saloon illumination: a well-lit, comfortable environment that is perfectly balanced between the galley and saloon areas, the U-shaped galley, fully fitted with broad work surfaces and extensive storage space, is oriented towards the external cockpit.
The attention devoted to detail and the use of the volumes make this new interior a unique and enjoyable living space.
