A New 42’ Catamaran Arrives at Lagoon

Lagoon 42

The Lagoon 42 fits between the Lagoon 400 and the Lagoon 450 F & S, replacing the Lagoon 421. This new member of the Lagoon range has style and a strong personality. While maintaining a family resemblance and retaining the main features of the latest generation of Lagoons (vertical bows, suspended coachroof, optimised rig, etc.), it illustrates our quest for harmony between the living space and sailing.

Outside, the lines of a good-looking boat designed by the VPLP studio and Patrick Le Quément: 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.

The mast moved further aft and the self-tacking jib, a guarantee of performance under sail and ease of handling.

An ergonomic helming station at the coachroof bulkhead, offering many advantages:
– direct communication between the cockpit and the helming station,
– direct access to the coachroof,
– a composite bimini with a sliding panel to provide shelter for the crew,
– a sliding closure panel for helming station safety when under way,
– centralised controls for ease of operation.

A cosy cockpit, with smooth, elegant curves:
– 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 interior 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.

Lagoon 42 2

As for the interior fit-out, once again, the Nauta Italian design office combines elegance and functionality, and offers us two versions of this new model:

3 or 4 double cabins:
– lits 3 or 4 double cabins … 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.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
