The new 52 has finally set sail and she's a brand new yacht in all respects. The angular coachroof, bevelled deck edge and cutaway bows create a more sleek, aggressive look than her predecessor, the 500. Equally striking is the mast position which has been moved aft so it is now supported by a post in the middle of the saloon. This brings considerable benefits in terms of both performance and handling. The high aspect ratio mainsail gets the canvas high where the breeze is most effective. The short boom is easy to control and the lighter mainsail is easy to pack away at the end of the day. Setting the main aft creates room for a large-self tacking genoa and there is no need for an inner forestay. Handling a Lagoon has never been easier.
On the flybridge, whereas the 500 had a simple row of seats the 520 has enough space to walk around the helm, which further eases handling in many respects. The central steering wheel clevery pivots to port or starboard to improve visibility when sailing or parking - a great feature.
Below decks the layout feels similar to the 560 in many respects, particularly with regard to the port aft cabin which is accessible from the cockpit. Island beds and vanity desks feature in the 3 or 4 cabin versions and there is a 5-cabin family/charter option in the pipeline too. Each new Lagoon brings in a new level of luxury. The interior of the 52 has a new light wood interior with richly patterned grain and some nice leather touches.
The aft deck features a very wide gangway between the transoms and there is space for an optional raised bench seat here too. Forward of the coachroof you will find Lagoon's trademark sunken cockpit. It is safe to say there is no shortage of room in the shade or the sun, away from the tangle of ropes, where you can truly relax! Click here to see the Lagoon 52 video
