When Did Lagoon Cats First Appear?

The first Lagoon #catamaran model was delivered in 1987.  As a result, more than 3,000 Lagoon catamarans exist around the world.

DESIGN INNOVATIONS

For three decades, the company has been a leader in design innovation. For example, 

1997

Lagoon invents vertical windows for the Lagoon 410 catamaran, adding welcoming light and a feeling of more volume.

2004

No one had ever seen or heard of a flybridge on a sailing catamaran.  That is, until Lagoon installed one. Now, a decade later, all Lagoons 45’ and larger are equipped with a flybridge.

2006  

The first hybrid-powered cruising catamaran is introduced. Specifically, the Lagoon 420.

2009  

Welcome the Lagoon 620.   It is the benchmark for crewed catamaran charters.  Ask any charter broker their preferred vessels for a Virgin Islands yacht charter vacation.  They probably point to Lagoon 620 sail catamaran AVALON.  Also, luxury sailing catamaran CROCODILE DADDY

2013  

The new Lagoon 39 and 52 models, featuring innovation by VPLP naval architects, have the masts pushed back aft for comfort, performance, and easy handling. 

 

 

HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS

Happy 30th birthday, Lagoon!  Thank you for all that you’ve done for the catamaran charter industry — here’s to another 30 years.
