Overview

With her new visual identity, the 40 immediately stands out …

and showcases the synergy of Lagoon’s innovation and expertise.

This superb yacht takes the Lagoon range to the next level in delivering a luxurious on-water lifestyle.

While faithful to the image of Lagoon’s DNA, a new style is born: an individual, streamlined and accomplished design depicts her large portholes and panoramic view.

This creates a refined and high-performance unit, emphasised by the chamfer running from the bow to the stern.

A new generation Lagoon, recognisable at first sight.

Exterior - space and comfort

The gorgeous Lagoon 40 has a cockpit area that is exceptionally comfortable.

The starboard dining table accommodates up to twelve guests, and there is a recreation area on the same side and seating at the rear beam.

Her large aft transoms with spacious swim platform allow for easy access to the tender and safe boarding.

And there is additional living space provided by the forward cockpit, complete with sunbathing area.

An ergonomic helm station, accessible from the cockpit or deck, enables communication between the skipper and crew at all times.

New generation rigging - performance and simplicity

A symbol of the new generation Lagoons, the 40 is endowed with advanced performance features: a VPLP hull structure and an increased sail area provide a better sail surface area / displacement ratio. The mast has been repositioned further aft, which stems directly from VPLP’s experience in competitive sailing. 

  • A self-tacking jib for simplified manoeuvres
  • A large forward triangle for a wider choice of downwind sails: a guarantee of performance
  • A shorter boom for ease of manoeuvring
  • A main sail with a high aspect ratio, enabling the capture of better airflow in the upper parts of the sail for optimised performance
  • The re-centring of weight, thanks to aft positioning of rigging, considerably reduces pitching

Interior - elegant and sunlit

With new enhanced interior lines and a selection of luxurious materials handpicked by Nauta Design, this living area is a divine space – spacious and easy to live in.

And thanks to large hull windows with integrated portholes, you’ll enjoy an area bathed in natural light, with exceptional illumination and views.

Enjoy a choice of three or four cabin variations and a wide choice of accommodation layouts to meet the needs of owners and large families. The new aft cabin is fitted with a ‘semi island’ berth and features ample storage space.

Lagoon 40 Reviews

REVIEWS

With enough volume to let a crew live large, this new French-built catamaran carries the comforts to do just that.

Under sail, the 40 also tacks well. The small jib is a cinch to handle, and with the roll-up screecher, one gains a simple and minimal sail plan that’s very easy to power up or down. That said, 75 inches of freeboard to the deck plus a high superstructure and low-aspect keels mean this is a boat that shouldn’t be pinched up; it performs best when sailed fully powered and backed off a few degrees from a close-hauled heading.

Whether it’s just family or a bunch of friends aboard, entertaining is likely going to be on the docket, and the Lagoon designers assumed as much. Stairs built into each hull lead from a swim platform up to the covered cockpit, where up to eight people can sit around a table on a U-shaped settee and a bench seat. The captain is elevated at the starboard-situated helm but can be part of the social action thanks to the helm’s proximity to the cockpit.
