A popular charter sailing vessel is the Lagoon 440 catamaran, used for small parties or couples. The Lagoon division, part of the Beneteau Group, was originally designed by the nautical architectural team of Vincent Lauriot Prevost and Marc Van Peteghem.
Today, the CNB builders, also of the Beneteau Group, are taking the lead in supplying this beautifully designed and easy-to-sail catamaran.
The Lagoon 440 is designed to accommodate six guests in the sleeping quarters. The vessel is also equipped with an additional cabin for the crew.
A private bath is included in each of the cabins. Each suite’s bathroom has a nice size shower/faucet, sink with medicine cabinet, vanity, and toilet.
Designed with port holes and a top hatch in each cabin allows for the natural flow of air during sailing.
The salon seats six comfortably on bench-style seating and also includes peak chairs as well. For recreation, the catamaran is equipped with two trampolines which can be found in the salons’ forward area.
The wide deck area of the Lagoon 440 invites entertaining. The unique design of the flybridge allows guests panoramic views sitting above the captain’s cockpit while chartering to a destination and when anchored.
Breathtaking views are also enjoyed while gazing out the windows designed to wrap around the cockpit in the rear and living area.
The galley on the Lagoon 440 is L-shaped and includes a stove with an oven, sinks constructed of stainless steel, and generous counter space.
A pass-through sliding window allows to make meal serving easier and can provide a breath of fresh air when the galley becomes warm.
The galley is also equipped with a freezer which is located in the forward nav station corner and also includes an under-counter fridge to accommodate groceries for a voyage.
There is plenty of speeds available when sailing this catamaran. The engine on the Lagoon 440 is fed from dual tanks of 86 gallons, with a total tank capacity of 172 gallons running to the stern of each hull.
The pair of Volvo Penta 40-horsepower diesel sail drive engines are located in separate aft compartments in the berth area. If needed, access can easily be gained to the transmissions and engines by removing the floorboards.
The engines are high efficiency allowing approximately .6 gallons of fuel used per hour of sailing either manually or with the remote control. The Lagoon 440 can travel 8 knots and up to 10 with the right wind conditions.
The navigation controls are perfect for the inexperienced captain as well as the controls operating the sails and rigging.
The aid of computerized navigational equipment and automatic rigging and masts, makes sailing the catamaran is less of a chore and more of a delight.
