Sustainable raw materials
The new Lagoon 51, like all future Lagoon models, has been designed to meet the requirements of a new generation of owners. We have conceived an elegant, comfortable, and innovatively designed catamaran. Our woodwork comes from FSC-certified forests and the upholstery is made entirely from recycled materials.
As for the composites, our R&D department continues to work on improvements to use environmentally friendly raw materials, while keeping the quality and reliability of our boats as a priority. The structures of the deck and hulls are built using vacuum infusion, a process that guarantees weight savings, better quality of the composite, and allows us to reduce our environmental impact.
As soon as we can, we’ll start replacing glass fiber with all-natural hemp fiber. Our technological advances in resin and fiber are particularly promising and will be increasingly seen on future Lagoon models.
Eco-responsible solutions on board
Our goal is to help our customers do the right thing, whether under way or at anchor. From water treatment to the use of energy on board, there are multiple areas for development.
The XXL-sized solar panels integrated on the coachroof of the new Lagoon 51 delivering almost 3,000 Watts of energy for the onboard service needs; or the 100% ecological and biodegradable boat maintenance kits supplied with each Lagoon delivered, are proof of this.
Hybrid propulsion: significant investment in research and development
As pioneers in the field, with the launch of the Lagoon 420 Hybrid back in 2006, our Research and Development department is continuing its work to find THE right solution, which will allow us to offer electric propulsion on our boats, without impacting their capacity to cruise all around the world. A solution that is reliable, industrializable, sustainable and affordable.
Several alternatives are continuing to be co-developed and tested, with very strong ambition, rising to meet the challenge.
