Founded in 1984, Lagoon was originally a direct extension of JTA (Jeanneau Advanced Technologies), the “competition” department of Jeanneau. JTA is famous for the production of monohulls and multihulls racing offshore (Pierre I, Fleury Michon etc.) whose list of victories remains unmatched to date. Lagoon has also responded to original requests such as the construction of the trimarans of the film Waterworld.
Lagoon is now part of CNB, a division of the Bénéteau Group, the world leader in the construction of pleasure yachts. CNB offers a complete and coherent range of cruising catamarans designed by architects Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot Prévost (VPLP), whose multi-hull competition winners are unmatched. One of their most recent achievements is the famous Oracle trimaran, winner of the 2010 America’s Cup.
A first generation of catamarans was created between 1987 and 1996 with Lagoon 55, 47, 57 and 67: owners’ boats for deep-sea cruises. The Lagoon 37 and 42 are more intended for the rental market.
Some strong principles ensure brand recognition and Lagoon’s foundation: design, high quality construction, above-average performance.
