A sleek and innovative design
With her new visual identity, the 40 immediately stands out. While staying faithful to the Lagoon "DNA" a new style is born: an individual, streamlined and accomplished design. Taking the best of all that has gone before and introducing the latest ideas and technology, the result is a refined, great looking and high-performance yacht. A new generation Lagoon, recognisable at first sight.

The 40 interior is based on her predecessor, the Lagoon 39, but with some key refinements. As we have come to expect from Lagoon 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 3 cabin version being the widest in her class. The aft bed is now a "semi-island" shape with a cutaway and step on one side to improve access. Headroom has been increased and careful use of LED mood lighting further improves the ambience on board. 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.
Space and comfort
The 40 has a wide and comfortable cockpit looking out to sea with a big dining table, a lounging area on the same side and additional seating along the rear beam.
The ergonomic helm station is accessible from the cockpit or deck, thus enabling communication between the skipper and crew at all times, and features a luxurious new double seat.
Large aft transoms with a spacious swim platform, allowing simple access to the tender and safe, easy boarding.
A forward cockpit, fitted with a sunbathing area, provides further living space.
The sail area has been significantly increased in comparison with her predecessor, the 39, which in conjunction with some significant weight savings results in a much improved sailing performance in the lighter airs.
Situatating the mast at the centre of gravity of the boat reduces the pitching effect while creating enough space for a self-tacking genoa, so upwind sailing could not be easier.
The increased mast height of the 40 creates an impressive sail area to displacement ration of 4.17, similar to the Lagoon 42. Despite this the boom remains manageably short, which means it's easy to reef and to control in a gybe.
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!

He has been on several good delivery trips aboard the Lagoons, including deliveries from the Lagoon factory to Southampton, which always proves an invaluable learning experience and Mike has a very sound and detailed knowledge of the product.
