The Lagoon 52 is part of a major evolutionary step for this well-established company. A new desire to improve the previously mediocre performance of Lagoon led to these improvements and has brought a dramatic design change while retaining the familiar overall look. The aft stepped mast reduces the weight on the leeward bow and the flybridge offers improved visibility when not sailing. It is easy to imagine cruising the Greek or Carribean islands in style aboard this boat and experiencing some improved sailing performance while doing it. In the luxury catamaran market, the Lagoon 52 is a serious contender that deserves a close look if your sailing agenda and budget are right.
