A new icon of the sea
A true luxury day boat for the discerning leisure boater seeking comfort and high performance
After the great success of the Pardo 43 and 50, Pardo Yachts presents the Pardo 38. This model completes the walkaround range of Cantiere del Pardo. The Pardo 38 is a synonym for elegance, quality and power and offers many customisation options to suit your individual requirements.
One of the most important features of the new Pardo 38 is the ability to offer two different propulsion systems. These can be either sterndrive or outboard, offering maximum power of 1050 hp and a generous selection of seven different engine combinations. Both sterndrive and outboard engine propulsion systems offer joystick controls enabling great manoeuvrability and performance, as well as comfort and easy handling.
The large walkaround deck affords easy movement and safety on board. The T-Top offers shade while allowing airflow over the wheelhouse area and is made from pre-preg carbon technology. There is an option for an electrical bimini to cover the lounge/dining area at the stern for additional shade.
The lounging areas are located both at the bow with a large and comfortable sunbathing area for three people, and at the stern with two settees and a foldable table allowing the space for six.
Inside you will find a cabin oozing with Italian style and class. This interior is the largest in its class, you will struggle to find anything else on the market like it. The standard layout includes one cabin with a double bed and a separate shower/head area. As an option, you can also have a second cabin with two single beds. The interior is bright and spacious with generous heights and superb natural ventilation.
A boat for the sophisticated yachtsman looking for luxury, comfort and high performance.

“We highly recommend TMG. Rowan at TMG was responsive, professional and patient at every turn during this process, from selection of boat options (Lagoon 450S) prior to purchase, all the way through handover of the boat in France.” Karen, Lagoon 450S.
“Through our travels, we’ve met other Lagoon 42 owners who bought their boat through other brokers (overseas)… You don’t know how good you’ve got it until you meet someone who got much less. A big thank you! Everything we wanted on the boat was delivered. Everything works & we were shown how it works. Any failures are ours due lack of familiarity or faulty memory.” – Liz and Rob – Lagoon 42, Bilby
Fourth time Lagoon owner John Pruim has just become the first Lagoon 50 owner in Australia!!! “Lagoon allows you to go from a to b safely, easily and reliably. There is a sense of comfort and space, perfect for being a house on the water…” Says John. “The team at The Multihull Group will work with you to ensure you get just the set up you desire…” – John Pruim – Lagoon 50, Themis
“”Lagoons are boldly angular in shape, and we thought that was fantastic. It creates that space inside and looks great on the outside. And the sailing performance for a production catamaran … is very very good.
When we arrived in Les Sables-d’Olonne John had this rockstar entrance… surreal does not even begin to describe how it felt.”
” – Aaron and Lara Jones – Lagoon 42, Sabella
“A big tick to TMG… They’ve been fantastic with their support, if we’ve had any issues we get in touch with them and they go out of their way to help us so they’ve made buying this boat in Europe such a pleasant experience and yeah, I’ll give them a 10 out of 10, it’s been great… If you’re going to buy a Lagoon buy it from TMG.
” – Liz and Rob – Lagoon 42, Bilby
“It’s very very easy, so much space, we just had 4 couples for 5 days, it was very chilled out and relaxed.
The flybridge is such a big beautiful place with a view, its elevated and we put permanent clears around ours so you can use it anytime, day or night, windy or raining, it doesn’t matter. You can sit up there have lunch, have dinner. We call it the first class lounge, you can’t go wrong.” – Anthony and Seryn Ryan – Lagoon 630MY, Antics
These Lagoon 40 owners recently took delivery, “We decided to stick to our schedule and pick up our Lagoon 40 in Les Sables-d’Olonne in early March despite the uncertainty surrounding the current worldwide pandemic and the lockdown in France (curfew in France is 7 pm).”
“We love our Lagoon, we’ve been out in some pretty tough conditions and it’s always brought us home safe, it’s fantastic under sail and great at anchor so we absolutely love our boat.
Our favourite thing about our boat is the places it can take us, we get to see a lot of the east coast that most people can only imagine to see and to be able to access it with a boat it’s just fantastic.” – Matt Doncan – Lagoon 400S2, Espresso
“Greg and Sue Harding created and monitor the Lagooned in Oz Facebook Community and are vital and enthusiastic Lagoon owners.
The pair have owned numerous Lagoons and love their current Lagoon 440. – Greg and Sue Harding” – Lagoon 440, Blue Pointer
There is more enjoyment in a sailboat in that the enjoyment is in the journey as much as it’s in the destination. That to me makes it a totally different experience.
The advantage of a flybridge to me is the fact you are that much higher off the surface of the water, you can get better vision all around, a greater sense of being on-top of the whole thing and I do enjoy being out in the sun most of the time.” – Jeff D’Albora – Lagoon 52F, Infinity II
It’s really the quality, that it’s the best. When I went to look at the factory, every tool had a place and they had a very specific system. And everyone was clearly trained and they seemed to take such pride in what they were doing.
We have a 28 Performance. I think I was convinced when we went down to Dragonfly for a test sail. Then it started to move things and well, I think we need to switch. It is great fun, I must say. I mean, when you get the wind, you get the speed and it
Paul Rogers is one of the founders of Lagooned in Oz “…the best thing about our lifestyle is not the boat or location, it’s the people. There is a whole community of Lagoon owners, and the Lagoon events have connected us with so many wonderful people.” – Paul Rogers, Moor RnR
David and Nerida Lee have been living aboard and sailing their Lagoon 380 for years, speaking highly of Lagoon as a brand and their on water lifestyle.
“The fact that you can wake up every morning with different scenery… it’s the freedom! For us it was finding a boat that would take us and all our possessions and our Lagoon does that. We live and sail in paradise! ” – David and Nerida Lee – Lagoon 380 Seabreeze
“The entire TMG team were really good. In the initial stages, John gave great advice and helped spec the boat, looking back it was all very valuable… From our first enquiry, through specification, order, to delivery and after-sales, TMG have been terrific to deal with. Ordering our Lagoon 40 was no small decision and a perfect delivery reassured us from the start,” Mike Pain.
“I had been looking at many different trimaran brands and found the Dragonfly trimarans to standout due to their exceptional built quality and very clever design.” Chris, Dragonfly 35
“I think it’s a fascinating and great way to live … so many people put things off until retirement and then can’t achieve their dream when they get there.
I’m happy with my choice.
It stretches you a bit and you juggle a lot of things, but with good people like the team at TMG, you can follow your dream.” – Drew Hakin, Adèle 1
We wondered how it would perform in the conditions that we’re going to have to sail it in. And my impression, to date, is that it handles the swell and the rough seas and the wind beautifully, even better than our monohull. So, so far, I’m delighted.

When veteran sailing journalist Kevin Green joined TMG’s Rowan McMahan and Joe Fox onboard the Dragonfly 25 Sport for a spinnaker run offshore the Sydney coast, he declared that “the fun factor was apparent in spades”.
The Dragonfly 25 trimaran weights a shade over 1,000kg and can sail at 17 knots. The 25 is a pure daysailer/weekender with purpose-built roll-on roll-off trailer for easy launching and recovery. She weighs 1,050kg and, with her minimal wetted area, it’s a recipe for speed. The swing wings are delicate but easy to operate.

Performance sailing is near the top of the list of requirements for the average Dragonfly trimaran owner, and the latest (and smallest) model from this Danish builder – the Dragonfly 25 – is no exception, as Dieter Loibner reports in this First Look Video filmed at Dusseldorf Boat Show.

Buying a catamaran and deciding to wrap up your life on land to sail the world is a life-changing decision, one made a little harder when caught up amongst the pandemic and uncertainty it caused.
So we turned to new Lagoon owners Ian and Jackie who put together an incredible story to give you the reality of what this experience was really like for them.
If you have been keeping up to date with Dragonfly news you would know that the Dragonfly 40C, the new carbon trimaran is currently in production. The team in Denmark have been updating us with the process of the new build in the factory and we wanted to bring you along for that journey.
After a fabulous weekend on Sydney Harbour showing off this brand new Lagoon 42 it was time to sail back to Pittwater.
With expected westerly winds of 20-25kts it was definitely a shock for Claire who had never sailed before when we experienced gusts up to 32kts.
