Re: Lagoon 39

When will the French abandon those damn curved settees?

Re: Lagoon 39

Thanks for sharing.

It looks good in water. The sail profile reminds me of the AC45 catamarans - which are basically vertical wings. Perhaps Lagoon might have something with moving the mast aft and using a narrower mainsail afterall.

Found these two videos from the blog you referred to very interesting.

This really shows the difference in speed between a crusing multihull vs a performance/racing multihull.

It's like a bus being overtaken by a Ferrari.

Here's the blurb from the site:
The video from Lagoon 421 Happy Cat and its surprising meeting with the giant trimaran Banque Populaire V in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, while crossing during the ARC.




UPDATE of the 9th of January 2012: The giant blue trimaran that you can see on these videos was created by the same naval architects of the Lagoon catamarans, Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot-Prévost. The trimaran reached a new record around the wolrd with a time of 45 days 13 hours and 42 seconds last sunday. “Bravo” to Loick Peyron the skipper (and also Pascal Bidégorry the previous skipper at the origin of this trimaran), all the crew and the architects!

I Like those vid, it really give a good idea of the speed of a race boat... and the "let take it easy" of the other one... yahooooo !

Re: Lagoon 39

This cat will do very well in charter as it looks extremely easy to sail.

I think it looks amazing in the water. I wish he commented on the sailing characteristics in those conditions.

Re: Lagoon 39

down side of the self tacker setup would be not being able to backwind the jib in tacks. Easy to sail but hmm, usually if I tack single handed I press tack on the autopilot, wait till the jib backwinds and then sheet in on the new tack. At least it feels like I'm sailing :P . I imagine with the self tacker you could do the whole thing with your little finger while sipping your coffee. Also one of the nicer parts about teaching someone to sail for me is teaching them the tacking sequence and seeing them improve with ...each tack..ready about...leee oh ! Also not much gap between the jib and main. I think its a pretty minor downside though as Im sure jib tracks could be added easily enough (easier if its a factory option of course)

Also, being able to 'heave to' quickly, which we do often when we hook up a fish while trolling while sailing. Most self tackers do have traveller adjustment to alter the sheeting angles, tho the track on the 39 seems very short.

Re: Lagoon 39

It looks like Lagoon has released an official marketing video on the L39

Istion Yachting: Meet the Lagoon 39, the wondrous new small catamaran - YouTube

Or directly from Lagoon's own website:

Re: Lagoon 39

The rig concept whilst new to production cats with certrally mounted mast has been standard on many racers and fast cats such as Dazcat and FreeFlow.

Expect to see more follow. It has to sail better than the 380.
