New boats 2017

2016 September 1

We run down some of the new sailboats hitting the water for 2017

Lagoon 42

This new member of the Lagoon family carries on the traits Lagoon is known for, but includes many new features as well. The mast is moved farther aft on the 42, providing a larger foretriangle for a self-tacking genoa, a shorter boom for ease of main handling and re-centering of the weight distribution to reduce pitching.  Belowdecks, three- and four-cabin options are available, all of which feature oversized windows for that feeling of being outside, even when below. The openness continues as the helm is easily accessible and offers exceptional visibility. All this makes for comfortable cruising. LOA 42’; Beam 25’3”; Draft 4’1”; Displ. 26,460 lbs.; Sail area 968 sq. ft., www.cata-lagoon.com. Price: $341,500
