Many individuals believe that becoming a yacht owner is merely a pipe dream. Wouldn't it be wonderful to cruise the seas with your family or friends on your own boat, visiting lovely bays, islands, and gorgeous areas where you could discover virgin nature or locate your "own" bay to relax in, forgetting about your everyday concerns and devoting your time to those you love?

Why haven't you already considered how to become a yacht owner? Because of the high expenses of production and maintenance? Because of berthing fees, insurance, and other costs? Or simply because you lack the necessary experience to engage in such an investment? We frequently fantasize about relocating and getting away from it all. The first step toward realizing a dream is to get in touch with us. It isn't difficult; give it a shot!

It resembles a lagoon. It's designed to look like a lagoon. This 39-footer, on the other hand, is a new kind of catamaran. Although VPLP Design's Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot Prévost preserved the trademark vertical windows and overall design of past Lagoon models, they made considerable alterations to the rig and hulls in order to increase sailing performance. Most critically, the mast and the hulls' center of buoyancy have moved substantially further aft. To maximize waterline length, the bows are also exceedingly fine and plumb.


Everything in a boat changes when the center of buoyancy is moved, including the structure required to sustain the loads. The mast on a cat is usually stepped over the main bulkhead at the house's forward end. However, because the 39 lacks a bulkhead beneath the mast, Lagoon had to build an unobtrusive compression post at the edge of a galley counter, which is supported by a husky bridgedeck, which is made up of a robust composite beam with stringers that carry rig loads to the hulls. The fore and aft bulkheads are also connected into the grid, resulting in a square, sturdy construction that stood up well during what turned out to be a somewhat bumpy test sail.

For a modern boat, the fiberglass layup cycle is quite standard, with vacuum-infused balsa core above the waterline and solid glass below. The deck has a balsa core as well. The plumbing and electrical, like with past boats from this builder, are top-notch, with everything labeled, packed, and correctly fastened. The electrical and water systems, as well as the twin engines, are all easily accessible.

On Deck

The Lagoon's deck plan reflects years of charter trade experience, with plenty of grab points, spacious side decks, and good toerails. The foredeck is primarily made of netting, which helps to decrease weight and pounding in choppy water. The anchor chain is carried out to a position between the bows by a central longitudinal beam, which is a pretty standard setup. Fenders and lines are stored in two big, deep lockers on the foredeck.

Because all lines are up on the cabintop, the cockpit is spacious, comfortable, and free of sheets and halyards. The flow between the cockpit and the saloon is great, and there's enough seating beneath the targa top for a large group.

The helm, which is in a cutout space in the targa top, is a few steps up on the starboard side. I have a knack for spotting any boat with dangerous overhangs, and the 39 has none. Thank you very much, Lagoon.

All halyards and sheets fall neatly to hand at the helm station, which is one advantage of having the mast aft. This lowers friction, streamlines line runs, and keeps the running rigging out of the way of the crew and passengers. The configuration is completed by a line tail bag beside the wheel. This helm station appealed to me, albeit some overhanging cover to shield whoever is at the helm from the tropical sun would be nice.


Thanks to a modern mix of materials and blond Alpi wood laminate woodwork, the interior is light and airy. The large vertical windows—I don't think they can be called "ports"—provide a panoramic view and are low enough to look through when seated. The headroom will please tall sailors, and everyone will appreciate the countertop fiddles and mid-cabin post, which provide good grasp points in bad weather.

The nav station is ahead of the galley, which is to port. The large dinette table comfortably seats five people. There's enough room at the nav station for any gadgets you want, and the view will allow you to sail with an autopilot from inside in bad weather. A conventional chart book can be stored on the nav desk.

Sliding doors in the saloon provide access to the private rooms a few steps down in the hulls. I sailed the owner's version, which includes a roomy double berth aft in each hull, as well as a wonderful dressing table and a spacious head area. There are lots of stowage compartments, all of which feature sturdy positive closures to keep them closed. This is a private, deluxe cruise for two couples. Other layouts include three or four cabins that may hold up to eight people.

Under Sail

The Lagoon 39's mast location creates a big foretriangle, similar to that of an ocean racing trimaran. The spar is likewise tall, supporting a high-aspect mainsail that is both efficient and effective. The optional square-top main on our test boat improved sailing efficiency even more.

You can choose from a range of foresails, including a self-tacking jib, thanks to the combination of a huge foretriangle and a small main. The mainsail is also more manageable than on many large multihulls. Some may recall a rig that looked vaguely similar to this one on early Prout catamarans.

In an 18-knot wind and short, sharp 5-7 foot swells off the coast of Miami, I put the boat through its paces. The boat moved quickly. I averaged 7 knots to windward most of the time, with a top speed of about 7.5 knots. Under the circumstances, it was hard to correctly measure the tacking angle, but the boat never hesitated to come around or respond to its helm. Although the boat was rather active with a decent amount of pitching movement, I was pleasantly delighted to find there was no pounding as the pointy hulls slashed through the waves.

Overall, it was a pleasant ride that was rather dry given the weather. A similar-size monohull, in my opinion, would have rolled more and been wetter, but pitched less. It is a matter of personal preference as to which form of motion is preferable. In the seas we encountered, anything smaller than roughly 100 feet LOA would have ridden easily. Off the wind, the 39 easily accelerated to more than 8 mph and sped through the waves. For a catamaran, the helm responsiveness and input were remarkable. The Lagoon 39 has the feel of a sailboat and is easy to maneuver.

Under Power

The Lagoon 39 does the "cat pirouette" in its own length, with engines running in opposite directions, and stops exactly where you put it. With a reasonable sound level of 68 dBA, I measured 7.5 knots at 3,000 rpm. At full throttle, the boat should reach displacement hull speed, which is roughly 8.5 knots.
