The Lagoon 42 – Why She’s So Popular
The Lagoon 42 is a huge hit with Australians – what’s her secret?
The Sydney International Boat Show was a great success this year, under cloudless winter skies. The stands put on their best, but the sublime Lagoon 42 once again took centre stage.
TMG Managing Director John Cowpe talks about what draws people to the 42 and why so many are deciding that this is the boat for them.
Superior Avante-Garde Design
“There are a number of reasons the Lagoon 42 stands out for people, foremost of which is the design of the vessel. A lot of our clients are looking for a boat with lots of volume, yet is still easy to sail and the 42 fulfils those requirements. She has an abundance of space. Her sail setup is efficient and delivers performance and with the self-tacking headsail and a shorter boom she’s a piece of cake to sail solo or shorthanded.”
A Class Leader
“The class leading width in the hulls and ample light and air from more opening hatches, plus larger windows than any other vessel in its class, means that people feel much more at home on the 42. She suits the Australian climate to a tee.
The beam of the vessel and the design of the cockpit and bathing platforms combine together to create the open plan cockpit space, which is where most Australian owners find themselves relaxing.”
Stylish Simplicity Inside and Out
“The interior is beautifully designed and the finishes exude quality. It’s a welcoming space with plentiful storage, classical vertical windows allowing in less UV which keeps the boat cool and headroom all the way forward.
Thoughtful design is everywhere, such as in the width of the stairways down into the hulls and large opening windows in the saloon.
Lagoon has worked hard on the aesthetics of the 42 and it shows. People are drawn to her – the simple, elegant styling, smooth curves and the visual effect of the floating roof… she’s very easy on the eye.
Price point wise the Lagoon 42 sits well – she has the beam of a 45ft vessel, packing a punch for her size.”
The Art of Comfort
“Lagoon is a brand that people already trust – their boats are designed for family adventure and to fulfil dreams, combined with feelings of comfort, reliability, safety and stability.
When someone walks on-board the 42 they have an immediate feeling of being ‘at home’. That’s when they know this is the boat for them. It’s instinctive. Lagoon has worked hard to achieve this – they have the best designers in the world and the also the most owners in the world to listen to.
They deliver on giving people the satisfaction that they have spent their money wisely, they have invested in a lifestyle and adventure. They have a boat that fits just right, not too big to handle but with a feeling of luxurious space, abundance and generosity.”
“With a world class boat, you should expect world class service. The Multihull Group has a proven service and after sails team and the market is responding to that. The team at TMG goes above and beyond throughout the purchase and handover process giving you freedom and peace of mind and helping you to get the most out of your dream boat.”
