Lagoon Catamarans is a brand of Groupe Beneteau of France and builds multihulls from 39 to 62 feet. Many of these models are active in bareboat and high-end crewed charter and have been gaining ground in the private ownership market as well.
Since the mid-1980s, Lagoon has built boats focused on practicality of use and onboard comfort. The boats are easy to spot by their vertical wrap-around windows, rounded cabintops and square-head mainsails. Visibility from the helms of these models is excellent as the steering stations are always raised but somewhat protected from the elements.
These boats enjoy the support of a strong owners’ association and can be found cruising in most parts of the world.
After seeing over 260 boats built in three years, the Lagoon 400 (launched in 2009) has found a new lease of life through Nauta Design's work on the boat's interior fittings. Suggestions received from owners have enabled Lagoon to produce a boat that is even more welcoming, with a greater level of comfort, and resolutely modern: the result is the Lagoon 400 S2, a nod to its famous predecessors, the Lagoon 410 S2 and 380 S2.
Like its predecessors, the Lagoon 400 S2 is designed for coastal or ocean cruises. It can comfortably accommodate 8 with its 3 or 4 double cabins, elegantly fitted, spacious interior, and her cockpit and salon on the same level.
Luxurious and modern with its Alpi® grey oak finished cabinets, and Milano laminate flooring.
Even more spacious with the redesigned layout of the salon.
High level of comfort with widened double berths in owner and guest cabins.
In the owner version, an impressive suite rarely found on catamarans of this size, featuring double cabin, couch, and desk.
Infusion-moulding for increased weight saving (important for a catamaran), an optimal structure, and greater protection for the environment and shipbuilders
Interior woodwork in Alpi® reconstituted wood, a sustainable source
Vertical glazing for better protection against the sun and optimal space and height below deck
Gull-wing bridge deck for greater comfort in heavy seas
Wide choice of layouts including 3 or 4 cabins and 2, 3 or 4 washrooms
VPLP design: performance under sail guaranteed!
Rigid bimini flush with the coachroof for cleaner lines and better protection against the sun
Easy and safe movement around rear deck

Large owner's cabin with plenty of stowage
Galley located between cockpit and saloon
Forward cabins include double bed that converts into twin beds
Engine compartments are far from the living areas and perfectly insulated
« The Lagoon 400 is a true sailboat. During our trial in Chesapeake Bay, the fact of having two hulls with a pretty powerful combination of sails (gennaker and mainsail), allowed us to reach 5.2 knots reaching in 7-knots of wind. » Cruising World, USA – March 2010
« When we set off in the Lagoon 400, a south-westerly wind gusting to 30 knots was blowing over Chesapeake Bay. The boat thrived in these conditions under mainsail with one reef and jib, sailing at 7 knots or more, at an angle of 35-40° (apparent) from a 25-knot wind. » Sail Magazine, USA- January 2010
« In a rapidly freshening breeze of up to 25 knots, we maintained a speed of 8.5 to 9 knots, sailing at 55° from true wind, with the fin keels working perfectly to counter leeway. » Multicoques Magazine, FR / Multihulls World, UK – July 2009
