Caribbean-based, privately owned 4-cabin, 4-heads Lagoon 420. Extensively updated including rig and mainsail. Ideal for serious and effortless blue water cruising and warm-waters liveaboard.


From 2008 TROPICANA is a highly-specified and extensively updated example of the extremely popular Lagoon 420 and is fitted out with a supremely practical 4-cabin, 4-heads layout. TROPICANA is in only her second ownership, and her current owner enjoys sailing TROPICANA privately, and also chartering. In 2017, the boat was extensively refitted, including (amongst many other updates) replacement of complete rig and sail wardrobe. Internally, her joinery was refinished with the addition of contrasting mahogany edging to create a higher quality of finish. This demonstrates the attention of detail TROPICANA has enjoyed!

Her inventory highlights are many and include:
• 4-cabin, 4-head interior layout
• Overhauled engine and gearboxes with replacement sail drive diaphragms and new propellers
• Both rudders had new bearings in 2017
• New batteries – 2016
• Inverter – fitted 2016
• Davits with tender and outboard
• Extensive Raymarine navigation instrument package
• Furling mainsail and genoa - 2017
• New mast and standing rigging - 2017
• Harken self-tailing winches
• 3x 250w solar panels - 2014
• Webasto diesel-fired hot air cabin heating system - 2014
• 2x 130ltr refrigerators
• LG DVD and entertainment system - 2012
• New saloon upholstery – Autumn 2018
• Plastimo 10-person life raft
• Large structural Bimini over the cockpit and helm station

Perfectly located in Caribbean waters, TROPICANA represents an immediate opportunity to buy an immensely practical and nicely-updated cruising catamaran.


“The 420 sailed well and was fun to tack, jibe and run off under the reacher. Lagoon has done a really good job of making the boat easy for a couple to sail and we would think nothing of setting off for extended cruising with just two of us aboard. The working sail plan will suffice in most conditions but we would always carry a cruising chute to give us those extra knots and the extra fun when the wind is moderate and aft of the beam.

For a family cruising boat that has an ocean-going pedigree—Lagoons are delivered transatlantic on their own bottoms—the new Lagoon 420 offers the accommodations a family will really appreciate, the quality and systems discerning owners expect and the enduring value any investor desires.”
Blue Water Sailing – May 16th, 2008


The creation of Lagoon in 1984, which was originally the direct extension of JTA (Jeanneau Technologies Avancees), Jeanneau’s “competition” department (Pierre ler, Fleury Michon, etc). Lagoon also answered to unusual requests, such as the construction of the trimarans for the film Waterworld. In 1987 a first generation of catamarans was born with the Lagoon 55, 47, 57, and 67: owners’ boats for offshore cruising.

The Beneteau Group took over the Jeanneau shipyards in 1996 and handed over the development of the Lagoon brand, a legacy of its acquisition to Construction Navale Bordeaux. The use of high-tech composite was implemented in the shipyard.

From 1997, Lagoon established its identity, building more and more spacious and comfortable boats, while enhancing construction methods. During that period, the Lagoon 380, 410, 440, 470, 500 and 570 were launched. Further enhancements and refinements came in 2004 with the Lagoon 440 – the first catamaran with a “gull wing shape” nacelle, and the first catamaran under 45 feet with a flybridge. An unparalleled worldwide production record in the 45-foot range with 423 units produced.

The Lagoon range has continued to advance through to the current day adopting new technologies such as hybrid diesel/electric propulsion where it sees a benefit to its customers and the wider environment. All-in-all, Lagoon catamarans must be one of the most successful brands of multihulls for customers wishing to enjoy luxurious living combined with excellent sailing performance.
