It's the holiday season & that can only mean one thing - more time for boating!

We'd like to thank you for sharing your boating journey with The Multihull Group and the wider Lagoon community during the past year. As carefree sunshine-filled days entice us outdoors we'd like to wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a New Year blessed with blue skies and calm seas.

We look forward to hearing more about your waterborne adventures wherever in the world you're sailing in 2017.

Best boating wishes

MC 50 CAT launching soon!

When Jason Ker designed the McConaghy MC50 CAT his primary focus was to deliver a high performance multihull with more space and more accommodation without compromising on speed or efficiency.

Traditional monohull sailors and previous owners of cruising multihulls won’t be disappointed – the MC50 CAT ticks all the boxes. Led by Ker's advance yacht design principles, this is a catamaran that has been designed with speed, safety and comfort as a priority along with exquisite attention to detail. With a flybridge helm station and spacious interior, the MC50 CAT is fully customisable with an extensive list of options. Carbon spars, performance sails, teak decks and world class electronic packages, amongst other options, make the MC50 CAT all about customising to suit your sailing style.

The use of light modern timbers and soft fabric finishings ooze style and sophistication. The galley provides ample space for the most discerning chef.

All accommodation spaces are bright, light and airy with fine lines and designer touches ensuring a great nights sleep wherever you are moored.

Book your private viewing of MC50 CAT prior to Singapore Yacht Show
The team from McConaghy are inviting private viewings, by appointment only, of the MC50 CAT at McConaghy's China factory. Contact McConaghy to book your April factory inspection prior to the Singapore Yacht Show (6 - 9 April 17).
ARC+ 2016 Race - Success for the Lagoon 450 Flybridge

Lagoon 450 Flybridge Spirit has won the ARC+ 2016 Race, headlining a fleet of Lagoons that dominated the Multihull Division. Though to be fair, Spirit had a four-legged secret weapon named Bailey on board!

Every November since 1986 the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) has set sail from Las Palmas, bound 2,700 nautical miles westward across the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean.

TMG's John Cowpe summarises the outstanding results from the Lagoon Yachts:

“We've seen absolutely amazing results from the ARC + 2016 Race with Lagoon taking out the first six positions in the Multihull Division. It's a clean sweep for these proven blue water cruising cats that have reveled in Atlantic Ocean conditions!”

While we're talking ARC, the 2015 winners shared their success story

The smallest boat in the 2015 ARC fleet, a Lagoon 380 Havhunden, recently sailed into The Boat Works on the Gold Coast for annual maintenance. Mid-way through their circumnavigation, John Cowpe caught up with Danish couple Lars and Lise Oudrup and asked them to share the secrets of their 2015 ARC success. Read their story
630MY on show at Sanctuary Cove & Sydney Boat Shows

TMG have secured the multi-award winning 630MY which will arrive in Australia in February 2017. Just the third 630MY seen in Australia, after being commissioned by the TMG team this bluewater passage maker will be available for viewing at the Gold Coast and Sydney.

The 630MY swooped in to take first place in the 2016 Motor Boat Awards in the Trawler, Aft-cabin and Catamaran category. This on top of 2015 Yachting Festival de Cannes where the 630MY outperformed some of the world's leading builders of motor superyachts, with Lagoon's expertise recognised in winning the "Best interior design in the 50' to 80' yacht category".

This adds to the distinction awarded to the 630MY as "Best Worldwide Production Motor Yacht (15m to 24m)" bestowed by Asia Boating magazine.

With European pickup an enticing option, TMG clients are able to take full advantage of a season cruising the Mediterranean post-launch from the Bordeaux factory. Our world-class Europe-based service team are on hand to assist with delivery to Australia as required.

Register today for a private viewing of the Lagoon 630MY at the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show in May and the Sydney International Boat Show in August.

John Wooldridge from Yachting magazine had this to say about the 630MY:

“ I watched from my perch on the aft deck as a tall wave rolled up behind us, ducked under our hulls and lifted them briefly, and then I felt the acceleration as the 630MY surfed down the face.

Looking through the salon to the screen at the interior helm, I saw the speed pick up to 14 knots, then slow to our original 10 knots as the wave passed. It was a thrilling ride, never out of control, and very predictable as the autopilot once again found our original course. The 32-foot beam kept the sole squarely under my Topsiders, and I marveled at the roll resistance of her twin hulls.

I was surprised at how well the power catamaran performed in these conditions, but really, I shouldn'’t have been. The 630MY is based on the Lagoon 620 sailing catamaran and, with more than 50 620s built, is a tried-and-true platform for open-ocean cruising. "
