A new crop of exciting sailboats—from performance-oriented dinghies to drop-dead gorgeous flagships—is coming to a boat show near you

Lagoon 52

With its distinctive diamond-shaped bows and beveled hulls, the VPLP-designed Lagoon 52 is an eye-catcher, and not just topsides.

All the cabins have natural lighting and ventilation from deck hatches and portholes that open out to the hull-side or to the cockpit or deck.
