Grabau International is delighted to announce the price reduction of the 2018 Lagoon 42 ‘AURORA’.
Great opportunity to have a virtually new boat with a large saving on the new price. Great spec. inc. 4-cabin, 4-ensuite heads, watermaker, generator, reverse cycle A/C, walnut interior, crew cabins, inverter, additional tankage, console tender+++
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
AURORA is still under her original ownership and although having been purchased to use partly for charter, the seller added many extras for their own pleasure and which many of her similar charter sisterships do not always benefit from. She will be available for handover from October 2019 and represents a great opportunity to secure a virtually new boat, without the wait for a new build and with a very respectable saving over her original invoice cost.
She enjoys stylish walnut interior joinery with Asburgo to the cabin sole, which adds a nice contemporary feel to the boat but otherwise, she has some great features such as; a generator, water maker, reverse cycle air conditioning, inverter, solar panels, cockpit refrigerator, teak cockpit sole, B & G electronics, two additional crew cabins, one located in each of the twin forepeaks. She has the popular 4-cabin, 4-en suite heads layout plus the very spacious combined saloon, galley and navigation area which these very popular boats are renowned for, fathead mainsail with a boom stack pack and lazy jacks along with a roller furling genoa, Code-0 on a furler (the sails are by North Sails), electric winch and anchor windlass for ease of handling. There is also the Highfield inflatable console tender with its Yamaha 15hp outboard motor which is easily launched and retreaved with the transom davits

YACHTING PRESS REVIEW:
The Lagoon 42 has been an industry (and now a consumer) favourite since it was launched. It was awarded the 2017 “Boat of the Year” by Cruising World in the “less than 50 feet catamaran” category, making this the fourth award for the Lagoon 42 in one year! We did a quick tour of the L42 again at the Miami boat show and were very impressed. Check out our video tour of the Lagoon 42 at the Strictly Sail Miami Boat Show at right.
The Lagoon 42 did not make it on “Our Top Five Cruising Catamarans Picks For 2016”, only because we had to make a choice in a very crowded field but we are really rethinking this decision. The L42 is a BIG and very comfortable catamaran for a 42-footer.
The cockpit is very spacious with nice seating and reclining areas all around. The scoops make for really easy boarding from the dinghy and act as great fishing platforms! The helm station is extremely comfortable with good visibility and the sail plan is set up for easy sail handling for a couple.
It really has all the elements for a great cruising catamaran. Furthermore, the price is excellent at around $500,000 for a fully loaded cruising catamaran with water maker, generator, air conditioners, dinghy, etc. Read our Lagoon 42 catamaran review.
Lagoon 42, Water Dragon, Sailing Report
Christopher, one of our readers and an owner of a Lagoon 42, “Water Dragon”, shared the video at left with us that features his “Water Dragon” testing the brand new Code 0 sail from North Sails in the Salish Sea just off UBC, North Arm of Fraser River and Wreck Beach, Vancouver, BC.. He says:
“… the trip from Seattle to Vancouver in the Lagoon 42. 44kts of wind with 14-foot waves at one point with boat going at 15kts with a reefed jib only while surfing (closer to 10-12kts average) and no main. It was still quite a comfortable ride. The next day was calmer. Sailing 8kts on a beam reach with 13-15kts wind, 6.5kts upwind at 50 degrees. We used the mainsail and jib. Doesn’t go much higher than that efficiently. 9.5 kts motoring both engines at 2800rpm, but this was a lightly loaded boat.”
Sounds like some good catamaran sailing stats to us!
Article taken from Catamaranguru.com
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.
