Lagoon Catamaran Construction

With confirmed production methods, controlled costs, certified quality, Lagoon’s expertise combines attention to detail, creativity and industrial rigour.

Lagoon’s incredible reputation starts with superb design. The team have unmatched expertise in the field of innovative catamaran design. Many revolutionary advances have been widely copied and become mainstream in cruising catamarans.


Class-leading infusion technology

Lagoon Catamarans are constructed using class-leading infusion technology and a variety of advanced materials chosen for their:

  • Resistance (to traction, shearing and compression)
  • Rigidity
  • Watertightness
  • Soundproofing
  • Insulation
  • Resistance to high and low temperatures
  • Brilliance (exterior finish)
  • Lightness
  • Durability

The shipyard construction of the hull, deck and bulkheads is done in a mould.

Instead of wetting the fibre with resin layer after layer, they lay the hull material in the mould dry (outer skin glassfibre, core material for the sandwich construction and more glassfibre for the inner skin). The whole assembly is then placed in a vacuum under a soft film. The depression created by the vacuum then sucks up the resin through the materials into the whole fabricated piece. This process guarantees weight-saving, better quality composite and good environmental protection.

Master craftsmanship

Lagoon’s master shipwrights work in one of the most modern cabinet making workshops in the world.

Digitally controlled machines deliver a precision cut, ensuring perfect joints.

But the boats also get the finest traditional treatment with highly skilled master craftsmen paying attention to every detail.  Lagoon’s shipwrights are artists who love working with wood and are proud of the wonderful quality of the work they deliver.

Lagoon’s expert team use advanced CAD software to design all the free-standing and fitted furniture. 

They position every component during the design stage, so they can see every detail of the complex architecture before work starts. The team choose quality timber and anti-UV varnishes so your Lagoon will look fantastic for years to come.

Smart foils

Keel-like foils are better suited to boats with considerable displacement than daggerboards because the anti-drift plan is longer with more laminar flow and the volume enhances buoyancy and allows for a longer waterline length.

You can beach your Lagoon (on purpose or accidentally) without dramas because the keels protect the rudders and props. And of course, the lovely shallow draft lets you get really close to the beach – perfect for family fun.

First class hull lines

Lagoon cats have symmetrical hulls. This means a laminar flow of water travels at the same speed on each side of the hull … and the VPLP hull lines have turned so many heads over the years and delivered such incredible performance and safety results … they have become the point of reference in the multihull world.

The superb Lagoon hull design also delivers great comfort at sea. Spend some time on a Lagoon bridge deck and you’ll really appreciate the smooth quiet ride!

Safety - with state of the art electrics

Lagoon’s design team insist on state-of-the-art electrical design and implementation software.  What this means for you is high quality, user friendly and low maintenance electrical circuits.

And it goes without saying that these are also light and safe … strictly conforming to stringent CE standards.  The high rating of the wiring and the use of sheathed cables, their routing inside conduit, the coding of all cables and easy accessible electrical panels, are features that guarantee the high quality and reliability of the Lagoon’s electrical system.

Electrical circuits are thoroughly tested at the factory and again during the commissioning process before handover of your boat. And of course, if you want to add new toys to your new Lagoon you have the support and expertise of the TMG/ Vesseltec service team.

Durable deck equipment

Stresses on a catamaran’s rigging can be ten times that of a monohull … so decisions on deck and rigging fittings have to be made very carefully.

The Lagoon design team use their extensive experience on the racing circuit to choose the best fittings for purpose.

Every piece of equipment is extensively tested in the Bénéteau Group lab as well as on the racing circuit.  Harken, Lewmar, Z Spars, Sparcraft and Maréchal are just some of the names you’ll see on the deck of your new Lagoon.

Key features of Lagoon construction technique:

Light hull

By compacting the fibres so tightly, the team can use less resin for the same strength so your Lagoon is lighter. A Lagoon hull is around 40% resin as opposed to 60% in conventional wet processing.

Precise positioning

The technique allows precise positioning of the fibres while they are still dry. This allows perfect interweaving of the different materials and total cohesion of successive layers.

Excellent mechanical characteristics

The dry layering technique delivers a much stronger hull than wet layering, even in a vacuum. This includes resistance to shearing, traction/compression, wrapping, buckling and intralaminar resistance.

Your safety

All Lagoon Catamarans easily pass the CE directives on the unsinkability of multihulls. The forward and aft compartments in each hull are separated from the living space by waterproof bulkheads. Low density of the materials and the absence of ballast enhance the unsinkable characteristics.
