46 : ENJOYABLE SAILING …
The 46 is a new generation Lagoon catamaran, espousing the formula that resulted in the brand’s success: freedom, bold innovation and generosity. Enjoyment of the sweetness of life was the central theme in this catamaran design, evidenced by the elegant lines, the unrivalled brightness and the generous, interconnected spaces. A true playground for bons viveurs!
On the 46, the VPLP Design consultancy offers both a deep and welcoming forward cockpit, a spacious aft cockpit and a versatile flybridge, perfectly combining handling and relaxation areas. User-friendliness and variety of spaces are balanced to offer comfort and leisure. Reaching the flybridge is fast and easy thanks to the two accesses: one by way of the aft cockpit, the other from the deck. On the flybridge, the helming station affords both protection and visibility. For greater comfort, a choice of sun protection is available: a folding hood or a rigid bimini. .
There is much optional equipment on the 46, enabling each owner to make this catamaran his or her own. The 46 promotes relaxation, with large modular sunbeds and quality equipment. It is also synonymous with freedom, thanks to a comprehensive galley on deck, enabling a high level of hospitality.
Two steps from the saloon, access to the sea is wide, convenient and safe. On catamarans of this size, the tender launching system is simple; on the 46 it is possible to opt for a conventional davit or a Tenderlift platform. This platform offers a new living space at the stern of the boat while facilitating access to the water.
A deux pas du carré, l’accès à la mer est large, pratique et sécurisant. Sur des catamarans de cette taille, le système de descente d’annexe est simple, sur le 46 il est possible d’opter pour un bossoir classique ou une plateforme tenderlift. Cette plateforme offre un nouvel espace de vie à l’arrière du bateau tout en facilitant l’accès à l’eau.
Designed by Nauta Design, the interior features a functional but elegant style. The VIP cabin and owner’s spaces are generously dimensioned and fitted with an island bed for optimal comfort. Emphasis was placed on neat finishes and interior brightness to enhance the quality of life on board.
The interior is an extension of the exterior spaces thanks to the abundance of portholes and windows. The forward cockpit and the saloon are connected by means of retractable glazing, providing a sense of boundless space. As for the single-level aft cockpit, it enables natural access from the transom skirts to the saloon by way of the cockpit.
RELAXED, ENJOYABLE SAILING
The 46 is a high-performance, seaworthy boat. Representative of the new Lagoon DNA, she provides:
– a larger sail plan for a better of sail surface/displacement ratio,
– a mast stepped further aft, arising directly from VPLP’s racing experience,
– a shorter boom, a self-tacking jib and a FlatWinder for mainsail track, for ease of handling,
– a large fore-triangle for a greater choice of headsails and greater efficiency.
