The 52 marks a whole new era in the design of cruising catamarans, as indeed did its predecessor, the famed 500.

With its diamond-shaped vertical bows, bevelled hulls, its as if levitated deckhouse and tall rig, the 52 is no ordinary catamaran, but its originality goes a great deal further than just its "outer" appearance, or even its interior layout.

This Lagoon is the result of lengthy discussions between the architects at Van Peteghem-Lauriot Prévost (VPLP), the Italian Nauta Design agency and the Lagoon design department. These discussions led us to make some important and sometimes radical choices, while remaining faithful to what we believe in, in terms of elegance, comfort, safety, user friendliness and, it goes without saying, performance under sail.

The 52 is now available in 2 versions: FlyBridge or SporTop.


Noble and luxurious materials, with soft shades for a harmonious interior

Continuous horizontal and fluent lines give the interior open and generous spaces

broad sidedecks, with recessed deck hatches
the cockpit is level with the saloon, and has an outdoor lounge and sun-lounging area to starboard
