It’s hard to imagine how a Lagoon could become any easier to sail but it’s happened. The 39 marks the start of a new generation of Lagoon designs, with even better ergonomics and rig handling systems. Already a success in the UK, where she is of a convenient size for local marinas, we have also supplied a 39 for a 3-year cruise to Australia. She’s a great-looking boat too. With more space and features than the 380 but a little less beam than the 400 S2, Lagoon really have this size category covered.
2 July 2014: Shared owner for Lagoon 39 sought! Our customer is looking for an equal part share in a Lagoon 39 for placement in Croatia.
The 39 brings in a radical new look, with bevelled deck edges, a cutaway bow and sharp coachroof styling. New features include an aft-stepped main, a bevelled deck edge and an extra-wide aft passageway. Moving the mast position aft creates enough space for a self-tacking genoa, making upwind sailing really simple. The efficient high aspect ratio mainsail has a manageably short boom and the helm station is accessible from the cockpit or the side deck. The black Code 0 sail option massively increases sail power in light to mid-strength breezes and will get you closer to the wind than a conventional gennaker. It looks fabulous too! The cockpit has a rectangular seating area with a large composite table or an optional wood coffee table that can be interchanged with the table in the saloon.
2, 3 or 4 cabins
The saloon and cabins employ plenty of timber, in a choice of finishes, to provide a really cosy feeling on board. The cabins are exceptionally spacious, with the aft beds on the Premium version being the widest in her class. LED overhead lighting is employed throughout, with additional concealed LED strip lights under the pelmets. The saloon / galley features a large front-opening fridge, an optional top-loading fridge or freezer and a sliding navigator’s seat to provide extra seating around the dining table. A classic Lagoon feature, the galley faces aft to the cockpit for practical and social living.
This the first Lagoon 39 to be launched and is shown cruising the shallow blue waters of Bimini, Bahamas. She is a 3 cabin Premium version, finished in Alpi Oak woodwork with the standard "Brise" cloth upholstery.

A Reynard, owner of a Lagoon 620
Tulu has been a real pleasure to live and sail aboard. Nearly four years and 16,000 miles on, I'm not sure there is much we would change! Ancasta have always been, before, during and after delivery/commissioning most helpful and attentive. We definitely made the right choice. .... "
