Lagoon 500

 

The Lagoon 500 is a luxurious new high performance boat designed for ocean cruises that includes the innovatite features that have made the Lagoon 440 success. The Lagoon 500 was designed by Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent lauriot Prevost who have won a record number of awards for multiple-hulled boats, and benefits from the latest developments in naval architecture. Its speed and handling at sea promise to be outstanding: the Lagoon 440's excellent performances under sail augur well for the pleasures of sailing the Lagoon 500.

Following up on their successful Lagoon 440 catamaran, the Peteghem-Prevost design team has created the new Lagoon 500 that will be available with five cabins in charter version. The main saloon, located on the bridge deck between the hulls, has a center table that is large enough to seat 10 in comfort. A good-size galley to port boasts a large oven and grill, a refrigerator, and freezer, plus a dishwasher and additional freezer and refrigerator space. The nav station on the starboard side of the main saloon has a full set of steering and engine controls as well as ample space for charts and electronics.

The 500’s LOA is 51 feet with a LWL of 49 feet. The beam is 28 feet, which translates into a lot of square footage both above and belowdecks. The overall displacement of 41,005 pounds gives the Lagoon 500 a sense of presence in the water and the generous 1,722 square feet of working sail area provides plenty of horsepower. Our test boat had two 75-horsepower four-cylinder Yanmar diesels and steaming away from the marina we hurried along at 9-plus knots without pushing. The 500 features Lagoon’s innovative gull-wing bridgedeck design, that improves clearance and makes the hulls more efficient in the water.

The 500 includes an elegant aft cockpit for lounging. In many ways the cockpit seems like an extension of the saloon. The steering station is above; a flybridge built into what is a robust cockpit hardtop. You access the steering station via curved steps on either side of the cabintop. There is a surprising amount of room with seating for six.

The sail controls are actually easier to reach from the flybridge than from a standard lower cockpit catamaran. When flying either the drifter or the genoa on a reach, the sheets are led aft to turning blocks, then directed up and inboard to the winches. For windward work there are inboard tracks on the coachroof. The mainsheet traveler is on the aft end of the flybridge, and supported from below by two stainless steel compression posts. The main halyard is led to a standard electric winch just to the right of the helm and the sheet is opposite. By any definition the Lagoon 500 is a big boat but it is also an easy boat to sail.
