Ancasta is celebrating after the Lagoon 42 was announced as the winner in the Multihull category in the 2016 Sailing Today awards, which were presented at a champagne reception at the Southampton Boat Show earlier today. Ancasta is the exclusive UK dealer for Lagoon Catamarans.
Sailing Today editor Sam Fortescue, who presented the awards, said: “Anyone who has chartered or cruised in the world’s warmer waters will recognise the distinctive outline of Lagoon’s phenomenally successful catamarans. The newly launched 42 is at once familiar and exciting, with a host of subtle tweaks to the lines around the bows and a new coachroof. Moving the mast aft has improved the boat’s balance, but she’s still a strong performer, even upwind. And we love the improved communications between helm and cockpit, which flows seamlessly into the saloon on the same level".
The winners of the annual awards, which were launched in 2015, were decided by public vote. Voting launched in the August issue of Sailing Today and thousands of readers got involved.
The impressive new Lagoon 42 can be viewed at Southampton Boat Show (Berth: M177) up until Sunday 25th September.
