Lagoon 55 – blog extravaganza

Lagoon 55 is a living proof of how much catamaran design has evolved toward loft living with a sea view from the terrace and what better place to validate that than to charter a catamaran in Croatia.


History lesson

The number 55 has a particular position in Lagoon’s history because it was the company’s first model, released in 1987. According to the world leader in the multihull market, the 2021 edition of the Lagoon 55, still designed by VPLP, is the ultimate modern cruising catamaran. According to legend, the first Lagoon 55 was named Lagoon, and her owner sketched the now-famous palm frond insignia on a restaurant tablecloth. The goal was to’sail flat and have more space’ after years of sailing on the family’s First 456. She wanted the silhouette to imitate that of a catamaran since she was convinced of its benefits.

New and improved

Going back to the present time, three design studios were involved in the development of the brand-new Lagoon 55, including former Renault chief designer Patrick Le Quément on the external design. The imposing topsides include taut lines, sculpted bows, and a noticeable lower chine that increase interior living space while reducing wetted surface area. The sugarscoop transoms extend over the topsides to allow access to the boat simpler, which is a new feature for Lagoon 55 catamaran charter Croatia. Two stairs lead up to the cockpit, which is flush-decked with the aft platform once on board. With the mainsheet track on the bimini, the aft beam vanishes, opening up the vista and your movement options, making it a true sea terrace.

The forward cockpit, smoothly incorporated on the same level as the trampoline, exhibits the same flexibility of circulation. This is a newly redesigned living room, with comfortable seating, two sun protection options, and connectivity with the interior via the opening front window.

Higher up, it appears that having a flybridge on a 55-foot cat is no longer an issue of whether or not to have one and the same goes for Lagoon 55 catamaran charter in Croatia. The forward-facing flybridge table and seats, in addition to the forward and aft sunbathing spaces and the outdoor galley, is very nice.

The person at the helm has a very fine 270° vision from their position to starboard for steering off the pontoon and departing harbour. All sailing moves are carried out using three winches at the foot of the mast, which has been shifted aft in line with contemporary trends. A single crewmember hoists the mainsail and unfurls the self-tacking genoa with ease. All that makes Lagoon 55 very easy to handle, so that guest’s can focus on relaxing and enjoying while charter cruising on the Adriatic sea.

Intelligent design – Italian influence

The interiors were designed by Nauta Design, the third company to work on this version 3.0 of the Lagoon 55. The materials and workmanship evoke the ambience onboard Lagoon’s two bigger siblings, the Sixty 5 and Seventy 7. This demonstrates the 55’s high-end status, which now places it at the top of the manufacturer’s ‘classic’ range.

While the hulls come in four, five, and even six cabin configurations, the nacelle layout stays the same. A beautiful bar unit extends the L-shaped galley on the starboard side.

The big U-shaped bench seat simply encourages you to relax and enjoy the view while being comfortable and the telescopic table adjusts to the user’s needs.

From floor hatches to bookshelves, there is plenty of storage space on Lagoon 55 for charter in Croatia. The owner’s stateroom, located aft on the starboard side of the four-cabin variant we evaluated, has a generous amount of space, taking up two-thirds of the hull. The visitors in the three other cabins, each with an en-suite, have nothing to complain about, ensuring that there stay is as pleasant as possible.

After all that we said about Lagoon 55, the only choice for this extraordinary catamaran for charter in Croatia is to come and endulge youself in amazing Adriatic coast and islands.
