Our new home...
Our catamaran is from the French builder Lagoon and is the 42ft version.
It’s an owners version and newly build in 2019. Length is 12.80 meters, beam 7.70 meters. The multihull width is 2.25 meters. The Lagoon 42 comes with walnut Alpiteak veneer, a durable wood species.
As soon as you come on board you will immediately notice the spacious outdoor living area with a spacious sitting area with table, a lounge sofa and a bench at the rear. The ground floor landing to the salon with wide sliding doors ensure a seamless transition between inside and outside. From the kitchen you always stay in contact with your guests because of the open plan.
The salon offers an unobstructed view and lots of light through the large windows all around. The sitting area in the salon is spacious and offers the possibility to sit with 8 people at the table. The U-shaped kitchen has a beautiful worktop and is equipped with a spacious refrigerator and a 3 burner gas stove. Optionally extendable with an oven, microwave and freezer.
From the saloon you can descend a few steps to the cabins, both to starboard and to port.
The 3 cabin “owners version” with a very spacious owners cabin which covers the entire starboard hull, with a queen size island bed, lots of closet space, a seat and workplace and a spacious private bathroom with washbasin, toilet and a spacious shower. In the port side hull you will find 2 guest cabins, each with its own bathroom with washbasin, toilet and a spacious shower.
The helmet station can be reached from the living space with only steps and is prefectly positioned. You have a view of all four corners of the yacht, ideal with mooring and docking. All sail related items can be operated from this position. Optionally, the Lagoon 42 can be expanded with electric winches, a code 0, B&G navigation pack, etc. The Lagoon 42 is easy to sail with 2 persons. Via a few steps you can get from the helmet station to the roof to, for example, thigh the sails. With the optional pillow set you have a lovely lounger for 2 persons.
The wide gangways allow you to move around comfortably, in front of the catamaran you will find the characteristic trampolines and various stowage compartments. With the optional pillow set you can create a lounge seating area from which you have a beautiful view as the water passes underneath you, a favourite spot of many catamaran owners.
When we bought our Lagoon 42ft ‘Horizon’ is was delivered out of the factory in Sable d’Olonne (France) at the 20th of June 2019. We asked a couple, Brigitte and Rob, to help sail the Lagoon to Stavoren in 2 weeks time, where the berth was for the next 2 years (till 1 May 2021). Brigitte and Rob have owned a Lagoon 39ft and sailed the world, so they were very experienced and we learned a lot from them about the ship and sailing a multihull in those 2 weeks!
