Lagoon 50 Wins 2019 Sail Magazine Best Boats Award
It’s official… Lagoon 50 named Best Multihull Cruising Boat 40 to 50ft
And now The Multihull Group is delighted to reveal that this new generation Lagoon catamaran won the “Best Boats 2019” prize in the 41 to 50 feet multihulls cruising category.
So, let’s take a closer look at the brand new Lagoon 50 and discover why SAIL Magazine officially named her as the best multihull cruising boat 40 to 50ft.
A whole host of innovations that truly set this boat apart
According to SAIL magazine’s editors, there’s just so much to love about the Lagoon 50.
“With the launch of the new Lagoon 50, the French catamaran builder introduced a whole host of innovations that truly set the boat apart in a world of evolutionary look-alikes.
Oh, the places you can go when you start with a clean sheet of paper.
With 1,700ft of upwind sail area between the standard full-batten mainsail and an 87 percent self-tacking jib, she is not under-canvased. The mast, which was moved aft to minimize hobby-horsing, is also 87ft high, giving this cat a higher aspect ratio to catch the wind further aloft. An optional Code 0 provides added oomph sailing downwind.”
A sleeker look and an easier transition from the water
“The hydraulic swim platform carries the tender, but in a whole new way, as the ends flip up to reveal a set of chocks. Otherwise, the platform is smooth and a great playground. Two squared-off transom steps leading to the cockpit are nice and low. Not only does this result in a sleeker look, it also creates an easier transition from the water or dock to the main deck.
To satisfy industry regulations, the engine room hatches open up facing forward and are hinged aft so checking the diesels underway will keep you in the cockpit and not out on the steps. Also aft, a grill built into the transom swivels out and over the steps to keep the smoke out of the cockpit.”
Enjoy the best cruising experience possible
“Inside, a nearly full-beam settee wraps around a table and center island holding a popup TV. This table has “magical” legs that mysteriously articulate to lower and simultaneously move the table away from the settee to provide leg room.
Available configurations include three to six cabins, and the master suite boasts a desk with a built-in bookcase and a small settee with a walk-in closet equipped with three rows of three drawers and a skylight overhead to let in plenty of light.
There are also lockers hidden behind these closets for stashing things like duffels and even an integrated magazine rack to ensure you want for nothing when under sail and enjoying the best cruising experience possible.”
