The 52, marks a whole new era in the design of cruising catamarans, as indeed did its predecessor, the famed 500.
With her diamond-shaped vertical bows, bevelled hulls, her as if levitated deckhouse and tall rig, the 52 is no ordinary catamaran, but her originality goes a great deal further than just its "outer" appearance, or even her interior layout.
This Lagoon is the result of lengthy discussions between the architects at Van Peteghem-Lauriot Prévost (VPLP), the Italian Nauta Design agency and the Lagoon design department. These discussions led us to make some important and sometimes radical choices, while remaining faithful to what we believe in, in terms of elegance, comfort, safety, user friendliness and, it goes without saying, performance under sail.
The 52 is available in 2 versions: FlyBridge or SporTop.
52 : LUXURIOUS AND CONTEMPORARY
Noble and luxurious materials, with soft shades for a harmonious interior
Continuous horizontal and fluent lines give the interior open and generous spaces
Continuity between exterior and interior life
A slender exterior design for a boat with a strong character
EXTERIOR: ELEGANCE, COMFORT AND SAFETY
The boat is accessed via large aft transoms, facilitating boarding and disembarking
Broad sidedecks, with recessed deck hatches
The cockpit is level with the saloon, and has an outdoor lounge and sun-lounging area to starboard
The cabin-top design creates a more elegant and punchier roof outline
a large sunbathing area on the cabintop
The sail areas are the same with the FlyBridge version. However, the lower mast and boom:
- reduces pitching
- makes the boom easier to access
The cabintop bulkhead fitted steering position includes the following:
- all maneuvers
- integrated comfortable helm station seat for 2 persons
- access from the cockpit and the sidedeck
- an optional extra safety system is also offered, with a tilting composite beam (optional) to close off the steering station in bad weather
- a composite bimini above steering area is available as an option
INTERIORS: COMFORT, SPACE, LIGHT…
The saloon encompasses the lounge and dining table to starboard, a large galley forming a "U" to port the chart table in the middle, facing out to sea.
The “U” galley is equipped with large hot plates, large work space and plenty of storage
The circulation in the salon is optimized, between the lounge and the galley
all the cabins have large double beds, storage space in keeping with the offshore sailing program of the boat and, of course, an en-suite bathroom with separate shower
The cabins have incomparable natural lighting thanks to the fixed hull windows, together with excellent ventilation thanks to the deck hatches and portholes that open out to the hull-side or to the cockpit
