It is said that the designers of Lagoon Catamarans are always focused on 3 things; Elegance, Conviviality, and Safety. And to me, it certainly shows when you lay your eyes upon a Lagoon Catamaran. Furthermore, this quote from the team creating Lagoons goes as follows; “When we draw the interior of a Lagoon, we aim to optimize the layout of space, while retaining a sober, luminous and comfortable atmosphere.”
Catamarans have traditionally been attractive due to their stability and size, making them excellent boats for live-aboard purposes or bluewater cruising yachts. They typically have more interior space than other boats thanks to their two-hull design which means there is inherently more space on board without sacrificing much stability when compared to monohulls.
Modern cruising catamaran designs have gradually shaped into a new aesthetic of their own, blending together the stylish look of performance cats with the added comfort of luxury yachts thanks to advances in design and technology. This makes them popular choices among charter operators who use them in tropical waters where their draft is suited well for shallow water exploration without fear of grounding themselves on reefs due to their large beam widths which also makes them great vessels for exploring shallow waters without running aground on reefs like many monohulls would do so easily due to their smaller draft widths.
After all, Lagoons are indeed Sailboats, so it’s obviously important that they sail well. Lagoons excel at sailing while doing well even in headwinds of over 12 knots! With fuel prices these days, we don’t have to tell you how important it is to have the sails up as much as possible, therefore being able to sail really well even with strong headwinds is not only very important but impressive as well.

One thing that’s undoubtedly a luxury on all yachts is space. This is one of the many reasons why multi-hulls are favored among traditional mono-hulls. Putting two hulls together obviously creates more room to work with as a base design. From this starting point, designers consider how they will use said extra space while designing new catamarans.
Spend some time aboard a Lagoon compared to other catamarans, and you will appreciate the usage of space. In conclusion, enhancing its width with “having 2 hulls”, while making it smoother and safer to ride makes Lagoon a very popular vessel. Perfect for your BVI Yacht Charter.
