The 52 SporTop is no ordinary catamaran … this beauty is all about pure luxury and making sure your on-water experience is sublime. And like her predecessor the 50, marks a whole new era in the design of cruising catamarans. 

With its diamond-shaped vertical bows, bevelled hulls, levitated deckhouse and tall rig, the 52 is so much more than just its exterior appearance or interior layout. 

This superb Lagoon is the result of some important and radical choices – with the VPLP, Nauta and Lagoon teams remaining faithful to what we believe in, in terms of elegance, comfort, safety, user friendliness and, it goes without saying, performance under sail.

The 52 is now available in two versions: FlyBridge or SporTop.

Exterior - elegance, comfort and performance

Access the 52 via large aft transoms, which facilitate boarding and disembarking. Enjoy continuous, horizontal and fluent lines that give continuity between exterior and interior life. With a slender design, this cat has a strong character. 

The sail areas are the same as the FlyBridge version, however the lower mast and boom reduce pitching and make the boom easier to access. The cabin top bulkhead fitted steering position includes:

 – all manoeuvres

 – integrated comfortable helm station seat for two persons

 – access from the cockpit and the side deck

 – an optional extra safety system is also offered, with a tilting composite beam (optional) to close off the steering station in bad weather

The Lagoon Design team’s racing experience influenced their decision to locate the mast further to aft … and this brings many advantages – a large forward triangle allows a larger sails choice: a promise for great performance.

The mainsail, which is relatively narrower and higher, benefits from better winds at the top, thus enhancing performance.

Interior - space, comfort, natural light

Lagoon have ensured the revolutionary 52 has a truly remarkable and luxurious interior layout – using light, modern materials ensures bright and comfortable living spaces.

Each of the three, four, five or six cabin layouts has its own distinct personality … and all have a private bathroom and independent shower. All cabins have incomparable natural lighting thanks to the fixed hull windows, deck hatches and portholes that open out to the hull-side or to the cockpit.

Entertain in style with a fully equipped galley – fridge, freezer, hob and oven. Both interior and exterior areas flow together seamlessly to ensure your time at sea is as close to idyllic as possible.

There’s even space for an optional dishwasher and second fridge – perhaps essential for extended voyages? The only thing you have to bring is your sense of adventure. And the wine …

Lagoon 52 S


Lagoon makes comfortable cruising catamarans where inside volumes are maximised. The 52 carries on this tradition but with a twist.

The latest Lagoons have had a makeover to soften some of the harsher angles but remain distinct-looking cruising cats that are stronger on practicalities than finesse. No bad thing when you are at sea, as I found when sailing one along the French coast.

Stellar sailing performance and a towering flybridge helm perch are defining characteristics of the Lagoon 52. As one of two Lagoons introduced earlier this year in the United States at the Strictly Sail Miami boat show, the new 52 shares many characteristics with its smaller, 39-foot sibling. (See ‘Little Big Boat.’) The exterior lines and features of each cat — including the sweet, elegant, ‘diamond-shaped’ vertical bows — were sculpted and specified by the well-respected French naval architecture consortium Van Peteghem Lauriot Prévost, while the accommodations plan and interior styling were the domain of the Italian firm Nauta Design.
