Re: Lagoon 42

it does look great !

One should budget for gennaker or some other reaching sail though as it has relatively less sail than 400 and 400 definitively needs extra light wind sail.

I take it as another reef which is at around 18 kn apparent. Then jib takes over. So white sail are more efficient at higher winds which is not bad thing.

The cockpit being all one height makes the useable space larger than the 450. The execution of the teak deck is gorgeous. The interior is yes Ikea-ish, but very clean and attractive. My business was automotive interiors so I have an extremely critical eye for this stuff, and for the price point that the L42 is at, there honestly was not any comparison at the show. Like others have mentioned here, it was the boat everybody kept coming back to. If she sails as good as she looks Lagoon will have a run-away hit on their hands IMO. (couple pix attached)

Thanks it does look very nice can't wait to see how they sail.

Re: Lagoon 42

Here is the complete price and option sheet current as of Miami: List-price-L42-Miami-2016_-A2016-cor2.pdf

They did tell me that shipping to the East Coast was pricey compared to the French Carib. Actual cost will vary based on a number of factors at the time of commitment, even implying that a much lower cost was possible if they get clever vs just quoting the book standard.

We were seriously considering the lagoon 42 but decided to buy a different boat. However we did obtain a formal quote from lagoon. In our case the delivery was going to be by ship to Guadalupe. The cost was $40,000 which is about half of what it is to the eastern United States. They said it was because it was going to a French island.

Re: Lagoon 42

had my boat shipped a few months ago. wasn't nearly that much, but it was consolidated with several other boats coming from Lagoon. It might be that much if it is by itself, ask about it, or see if it's negotiable.

I guess you'd learn pretty fast to splash down the steps before boarding after a swim.
My wife walked around the L42 on two separate days in bare feet with no issues, but I think it only got to the mid-70s to be fair.

There were 2 times I recall her commenting on the temperature of the deck of others boats and seeking the shade. I think one was the Antares. Can't recall the other.

Latest video of Lagoon 42 doing 16 knots

https://youtu.be/Qqi7jQXY4bk

Have seen it myself in Dusseldorf ... I can talk a long time but I can also just summarize it - this will be the single most succesful catamaran of all time - the successor to the L380. Period.

You are spot on on this I think. The boat is beautiful, and is priced much better than it's primary competition. The layout is great, and the cockpit is stunning. They are not only getting a huge draw at the shows, but are selling quite well. We just signed a contract for one, and they are on hull number 107 already, having just introduced the boat two months ago. At this rate, they will have to expand their production facility!

Chris, that's putting your money where your mouth is.

Good luck with the purchase. I'm sure we'll all read about the process with interest.

this must be record in recreational boat world. No doubt pissing off competition cat and mono producers.

Hope though not all purchases based on that video as, one needs to understand, this is just marketing.

Re: Lagoon 42

Given the comparatively small sail area of this cat as supplied, can we just accept this video is simply marketing hype?..

after all, I suspect every single production cat of a similar length would go equally as fast with an asymmetric the size of a small planet...

If that is all that is required to go fast, we will shortly be seeing videos from every single production cat of a similar length because this is the sort of publicity they are all trying to buy with their marketing dollars.

No. Just the standard Lagoon gennaker that most non-charter Lagoons routinely use.
