If you decided to sail the seas you should pay attention to the cruising catamaran Lagoon 400. This manoeuvreous catamaran will give a bunch of unforgettable impression from your cruising experience. Moreover this vessel is equipped with all necessary facilities. This luxurious catamaran features 4 double cabins. There are also two sleeping areas for a crew. All together this boat can accommodate 10 persons including the crew. The designers of Lagoon 400 have shown their noble ambitions developing the strengths and reducing the shortcoming of the previous models. The major arguments of Lagoon 400 are its habitation, ergonomics and light form. Having created a new model with classic forms and improved competitive sailing performance Lagoon has reached its goal. The comfortable 40-feet vessel has got a few innovations: a steeper hull and … a perfect deck surface with integrated cabin windows and the smart use of the hard bimini above the cockpit leave a very positive impression of the catamaran. The quality of work of all the ‘movement areas’ used by a crew is close to an utter perfection. A lot of attention has been paid to the block – saloon-galley-cockpit without compromising its navigation power. The captain’s seat deserves a round of applause. This is an undeniable success in the task to attain maximum visibility, safety, maneuverability and comfort. Part of the success is ensured by the electric winches, the new generation of which is effective and safe. The idea to use the top of the bimini as a lounge area during anchoring is brilliant. In the attempts to find the balance between the ‘playful’ look and the performance the designers, together with the LAGOON development department, have worked on the weight distribution, aerodynamics (bimini in particular) and the hull (below the water line in particular). The waterline bypasses look more ‘dragge out’, the shape is more harmonious with the glide lines when compared the previous models. In order to reduce the zone of water disturbance the lower bypasses have also been improved. The lower deck surface is shaped as a ‘seagull wing’ which height is only 55-70 cm. The construction of the catamaran has incorporated many infusion technologies for its basic parts. The underwater part of the hulls is made from vinylester, the part above water, the cockpit and the deck – sandwich balsa. Balsa as a construction material is characterised by excellent mechanic properties for bearing parts, and is more suitable for catamarans than AIREX, and could be even better than carbon if supplied from special ship sea lines. The configuration of the sails is also brand new. The configuration of the main sail improves the sailing performance keeping the classic properties in place and safe. A sail is normally wider in the area of the constant wind at 15 meters of height. Perhaps, the reefing and jibbing are a bit lighter than on a classic sail. Changing the tension of the grotto with a square top by a sheet one can effectively use the energy of the wind gusts. Lagoon 400 is spacious, comfortable, smartly designed and thus heavy…yet highly manoeuvreous! All of this is due to the perfect sailing performance of the catamaran. The boat is easy to sail in the fresh wind and it sails against the wind smoothly and silently. Port sides are managed by 1 crew member, all because of the excellent work of HARKEN equipment and the layout of the deck. The frontal view and the visual control of the grotto are impeccable. The speed of turns and acceleration of port sides truly impress. In general the success of the boat is the manufacture’s success together with the satisfying support of the keels. LAGOON is comfortable, practical, easy to sail and it can be funny yet suitable for cruising. The deck layout allows to freely move around when the sails are managed. Solar batteries panels are now a part of the basic option list as well as a diesel generator. The sailing properties of the catamaran make it possible to reduce the exploitation of the engines. This catamaran looks ready for any task and any requirement, be it a charter cruise or a family trip.
