"We are often asked what does racing actually contribute to the world of cruising. For a start, racing technology has consistently improved and simplified pleasure sailing, especially in terms of outfitting, electronic equipment and the materials used. Thanks to experience of competitive sailing, the design of current cruising catamarans has really changed a great deal, bringing nothing but advantages.
We have been lucky enough to work both at the highest level of competitive sailing and for the leading builder of cruising catamarans, which has enabled us to build technological bridges that result in major innovations for the pleasure sailor.
For around the last ten years, we have gradually been moving the masts on our racing boats further aft, thus centering the weight more evenly and improving the performance of the sail plan. However, featuring this major evolution as a cruising catamaran makes the Lagoon 52 F a true forerunner in this field as well.
Our main objective has been to improve the use of space, while providing the Lagoon 52 F with sober, bright and comfortable living spaces, to give her the same touch of luxury as other new Lagoons, and to provide the “just like home” feeling for the guests on board. The use of continuous horizontal lines without interruption gives the interior more fluent and harmonious open spaces. And as always, the main emphasis is on creating continuity between exterior and interior life, the view of the surrounding environment and the natural light flooding in. The choice of materials has been very important for enhancing the beauty and luxury of the interiors requested by Lagoon. More fabrics in all the cabins, and generally more wood and more leather, give rooms a warmer and luxurious imprint. Finally, great care was devoted to lighting, with a study on direct and indirect illumination in every room, giving a warmer and cozier atmosphere to the whole interior.
The collaboration, one might say complicity, between Nauta Design and Lagoon, can mainly be seen in the association of geometric forms with luxurious, “warm” materials, while optimizing the use of space in the saloon and the cabins.
The saloon encompasses the lounge and dining table to starboard, a large galley to port which gives on directly to the cockpit to form a large ‘L’, together with the chart table in the middle, facing out to sea.
No matter which interior layout you choose, all the cabins have large double beds,
storage space in keeping with the offshore sailing programming of the boat and, of course, an en-suite bathroom with separate shower.
Light and airy: the cabins have incomparable natural lighting thanks to the fixed hull windows, together with excellent ventilation thanks to the deck hatches and portholes that open out to the hull-side or to the cockpit.

In addition to sleek taut lines, that confer a dynamic elegance that promises great performance, the The Lagoon 52 F exterior design is focused on comfort and safety: The boat is accessed via open aft transoms, facilitating boarding and disembarking Broad side decks, with integrated deck hatches.
The cockpit is level with the saloon, and has an outdoor lounge and sun-lounging area to starboard. The fly bridge is reached either by a staircase leading from the cockpit, or by another leading from the deck on the starboard side.
On the fly bridge, the maneuvering lines are forward of the steering station while a
spacious sun-lounging / seating area is located to aft.
The steering station can be adjusted to three different positions (starboard, center or port), giving the skipper perfect visibility under sail or when maneuvering.

The decision to locate the mast further to aft directly comes from the designers’ racing experience and has many advantages:
Centering the mast in this way creates a large forward triangle (a promise for great performance), whilst affording all the simplicity of a self-tacking jib.
The large forward triangle also means it is possible to use a respectably-sized Code 0 for light wind conditions.
A “VMG” option allows you to “divide” headsail surface areas with a moveable self-tacking staysail and an overlapping genoa.
The shorter boom makes the mainsail much easier to maneuver.
The mainsail, which is relatively narrower and higher, benefits from better winds at the top, thus enhancing performance: extending the sail centre really improves performance.
The forestay and shrouds are at much wider angles to the mast, thereby substantially reducing compression: this choice allows you to reduce sample weight, thus increasing stability and speed. By re-centering the weight in this way, pitching is considerably reduced.
