Lagoon Motor Yacht

40 MY, 630 MY, Sixty7 and Seventy8

An extension of the Smartboat, the Lagoon MY wasn’t initially designed as a motorboat but a sailing yacht with the underlying idea of retaining the benefits of a catamaran (stability, independence and space for the owners). Comfort and sea-keeping qualities were given priority over speed. Changing the after section of the hull transformed the Lagoon-type sailing boat into an ocean-going cruiser with an optimal speed of 12–15 knots.

And these sea-keeping qualities, inherited from the celebrated Lagoon 620, and her considerable operating range offer the owner the potential for long, trouble-free sea voyages. Not only that, the comfortable and luxurious interiors make her a veritable floating residence, whether at moorings or underway.

The Seventy 8 is none other than the motorized version of the Seventy 7, flagship of the Lagoon range, and enjoys all the same features that contributed to the latter’s success: elegant silhouette, stylish coachroof, plenty of space, customizable flybridge (jacuzzi or sundeck), large platform forward (30 m2), customizable interior of the stern section of the port hull (meeting room, cinema…). And let’s not forget the remarkable hull door on starboard which folds down into a private swimdeck for the owner’s cabin, as well as facilitating ventilation and crew access to the saloon. With a choice of 510 HP or 580 HP propulsion, the Seventy 8 has an operating range of 4,000 nautical miles at a speed of 19 knots. Perfect for fetching distant horizons.
