Lagoon 42 catamaran - Exterior features

Lagoon 42: Exterior Features
Lagoon 42 "Beauty L": Exterior Features.

Designed by the renowned Patrick Le Quement and French naval architects from VPLP Design, who gave the boat lovely curves befitting VPLPs signature racing hulls. 

With a large aft deck, you’ll be able to enjoy plenty of time outdoors, enjoying Sundowners from a large rectangular dining table that will comfortably seat 7-8 people. There is also a well-sized day lounge on the port side for more seating. 

Like many of the other Lagoon models, the mast has been moved backwards to enable more downwind sail choices and reduce pitching. The higher aspect ratio rig with the taller mast makes for easier sailing. 

To further make sailing easier, the Lagoon 42 has a self-tacking jib, so now tacking is as simple as turning the wheel.

Additionally, you’ll find that the Lagoon 42 catamaran has a pretty smooth ride, as Lagoon’s gullwing bridge deck helps in rough waters.

With a nicely designed steering station, you’ll find the Lagoon 42 has great visibility and plenty of room. You’ll enjoy a nice Bimini top to provide some shade while you’re up there. 

Like many other luxury catamarans, it is so nice to have level decking where you can easily walk from the inside to the outside. The Lagoon 42 has a nice tri-sliding door that gives galley access and allows nice airflow throughout the cabins.

The Lagoon 42 layout is a great benefit. Inside this luxury catamaran, you’ll enjoy a spacious U-shaped galley that is well equipped with a three burner Eno stove and a top-loading fridge. The galley is open to the rest of the living space which includes an L-shaped couch where you can sit to run the outboard-facing nav station. The nav station includes a second set of instruments so you can monitor things at the helm from inside as well. The saloon also has a nicely sized table that seats about 7-8 people.

Like a lot of luxury catamarans, the interior living space is spacious and comfortable. You can get the Lagoon 42 in a 3 or 4 cabin layout. The 3 cabin Lagoon 42 layout includes an amazing master that runs the span of the starboard hull. Each cabin has its own head, for maximum comfort and privacy. The cabins also have great headroom, at just around two meters.

Aside from the great layout, the Lagoon 42 is luminous and well ventilated with 5 portholes along the cabin roof, wrap-around cabin windows, and tri-fold doors to the deck. Lagoon’s high-quality woodworking offers a beautiful and elegant finish.

With solar panels, a generator, a water maker, air conditioning, speakers in the saloon and cockpit, and a three-meter dinghy, the Yacht4Less recommended Lagoon 42, the “Beauty L,” has all that you need to enjoy your luxury sailing yacht charter.

Additionally, you can also arrange to have your Lagoon 42 catamaran charter be fully crewed, or just skippered. Imagine how luxurious it would be to spend a week aboard a Lagoon 42 fully crewed with a captain and private chef to take care of whatever needs you may have.

Where can you charter a Lagoon 42 catamaran?

Our recommendation is the Lagoon 42 “Beauty L,” which can be chartered from Athens, in the Alimos (Kalamaki) marina which is a mere 30 km from Athens International Airport. 

Athens, the capital of Greece is in the southern part of the Balkan Peninsula and is well connected by air or sea. There are several airlines that have non-stop flights between the USA, Canada, the UK, and the rest of Europe, and several more that offer one or two stopovers. You could also get to Athens by boat if you’re coming from Italy. Take the ferry from Brindisi, Bari, Ancona and Venice to Patras Port, where you can then take a two-hour bus ride to Athens.

Pricing for the Lagoon 42 luxury sailing catamaran

For a week on a luxury catamaran sailing yacht charter, it is surprisingly affordable depending on the time of year you charter. Between September and May, the offseason, the price for a Lagoon 42 catamaran charter is about €3.700. In the shoulder seasons, May-June and Aug-Sep, you can expect to pay €6.000.
