French catamaran builder Lagoon has announced the re-release of their original 1987 model, the Lagoon 55. The model was officially launched last month following weeks of testing.

Reflecting the brand’s 34-year history as a premier provider of leisure catamarans, with almost 6,000 Lagoon catamarans across the world, the Lagoon 55 is a celebration of both heritage and modern innovation.

Featuring an amended hull and interior layout, the Lagoon 55 has been redesigned to offer optimal circulation on board, creating a vast terrace on the sea. The cockpit of the Lagoon 55 is also completely open, providing a panoramic view of the surroundings.

This new model also features a carefully reworked exterior design with a new overhanging coachroof and raised bulwark, providing a sleek and elegant profile.

Emphasis has also been placed on light and ventilation in this updated model, with both overhead and large vertical windows in the coachroof complementing one another to create an open-air effect.


“Opening the interiors to such an abundance of natural light allows for a seamless connection with the landscape and the natural environment,” said Massimo Gino, co-founder of Nauta Design and the Lagoon 55’s interior designer.

Available in either four, five or six-cabins – all provided with large private bathrooms – the Lagoon 55 offers impressive volumes, adding a level of value absent in the Lagoon 52, which will be replaced with the updated Lagoon 55.

The Lagoon 55 will soon set sail with its technical team for a long series of intense sailing tests.

The model will make a stop at the International Multihull Show at La Grande Motte at the end of April for its world premiere, followed by a tour of the Mediterranean.

Beginning in June, clients will be able to try the boat in optimal conditions at Lagoon’s new test base in Port-Ginesta.

Founded in 1987, Lagoon is a provider of leisure catamarans with a current range of nine sailing models and two power models, ranging in length from 40–78 feet. The brand is currently owned by the Beneteau Group.
