Lagoon 42 Catamaran San Francisco Bay Area

Rare West Coast Find!

When Lagoon designed this 42 they hit the exact sweet spot for couples cruising. They made best use of the busiest living space: the main salon and cockpit. They made dinghy access, launch and storage easy. They moved the mast aft to make the main sail more manageable, and to provide for a big, self-tacking genoa. The U-shaped galley, excellent anchor access, easy and safe boom access, and many other details are top priorities on a cruiser’s wish list. The proof is here in the huge market success of this design. Pride of ownership and ease of upkeep is obvious here in Charis.


From the MFG:


This newer member of the Lagoon family has style and a strong personality.

While keeping a family resemblance and retaining the main features of the latest generation of Lagoons, it shows us a new path: unhurried evolution, a new “organic” approach, in search of harmony between living space and man.

An elegant silhouette, flowing curves which, by virtue of a noticeable acceleration of the lines in the bows and in the new coachroof design, emphasise the powerful and dynamic nature of this new model… A VPLP design naturally, a guarantee of performance under sail!


  • A single level from the aft platform to the saloon: a structural “revolution”
  • Entirely new ergonomics that ensure excellent use of space and ease of circulation on board
  • A large glazed door that occupies the entire width of the coachroof, and provides access to the unparalleled internal volumes
  • The suspended steps at the transom provide a whole new perception of the boat: a continuous, wide and inviting platform, worthy of a large vessel


The mast moved further aft and the self-tacking jib, a guarantee of performance under sail and ease of handling, provide the ability to bring all operations together in one place.


At the coachroof bulkhead, offering many advantages: direct communication between the cockpit and saloon, improved circulation, forward and aft of the helming station, direct access to the coachroof for easier access to the boom, a composite bimini with a sliding panel to ensure a good view of the sails, a closure panel or helming station safety when under way.


3 cabins with Owners Suite … and what cabins! Island double beds for the aft cabins and beds with side access for the forward cabins, the aft cabins benefit from a bathroom with a separate shower, very large windows in the cabins offer excellent illumination and magnificent views of the surroundings, the vertical glazing in the coachroof provides saloon illumination: a well-lit, comfortable environment that is perfectly balanced between the galley and saloon areas, the U-shaped galley, fully fitted with broad work surfaces and extensive storage space, is oriented towards the external cockpit.

The attention devoted to detail and the use of the volumes make this new interior a unique and enjoyable living space.
