The Lagoon 42 won ‘best boat of the year’ awards from both Cruising World and Sail magazine in 2017. Need we say more?
The Lagoon 42 has an open plan saloon and cockpit with a bulkhead helm position on the port side. A beam of just over 25ft and a true LOA of 42ft makes her feel very spacious and uncluttered indeed, both above and below decks. Flush deck hatches and handholds in the coach roof make moving around her wide decks easy and safe. The cockpit has a large table, and seating for all the crew and their friends, with a cockpit fridge to keep the drinks cold.
As with all the latest designs from Lagoon, the mast is set aft, and with a high aspect mainsail and larger genoa, the Lagoon 42 is one of the strongest performers in the range.
From the helm position, communication into the cockpit and on deck is easy, and all sail controls and winches are neatly to hand by the helm station. There is a full array of B and G electronics including autopilot and chart plotter. The composite bimini has sliding hatches, so setting the sails (there is an electric winch to hoist the full batten main) and trimming them is simple. This Lagoon comes with lounger cushions for the trampoline forward, and additional cushions for the coach roof, so there are plenty of areas to relax, underway or at anchor.
With the upgraded 57hp engines, she will steam at 8.5 knots with ease. With engines over 20 feet apart, manoeuvring is a breeze.
The Italian designed interior is luxurious with leather upholstery in the saloon, a superb galley and lounge area with dining table, plus a navigation station if you need a desk…. with a view that probably beats the view from your other desk.
This Lagoon 42 has a lot of upgrades, including freezer, an additional fridge in the cockpit, microwave, great sound system, additional water tankage, generator and 48,000 btu of air conditioning. Thoughtful additions like 110V and USB plugs in each of the 4 double cabins (with ensuite heads and showers), makes living aboard relaxing and easy.
