Lagoon 630: find out why the motor catamaran is depopulating. Motor catamarans? They are going strong! If in sailing the phenomenon is now established, let’s find out why in the motor world, too, catamarans are carving out an increasingly large share of the market.

Lagoon 630 MY: here are all the secrets of the catamaran

Multihulls are appreciated for a long list of reasons, but a major contribution has also come from the attitude of many ports that no longer charge “punitive” rates for two-seater occupants, going so far as to reserve special areas for catamarans. This factor seems to have been a major contributor to the large-scale commercial development of these units. Experience in sailing multihulls has provided a solid foundation for the Lagoon shipyard in the creation of a line that is proving very popular with the public and industry insiders.

The highlight is the Lagoon 630 MY

The highlight is the Lagoon 630 MY, designed by the celebrated VPLP (Van Peteghem Lauriot-Prévost) studio. and by Nauta Design for the interior. It is a 19.50-meter long and 10-meter wide catamaran that focuses everything on quality of life on board, rather than speed for its own sake. Two 300-horsepower engines provide a cruising speed of 16 knots, but most importantly, low fuel consumption.

Stability at anchor and reduced roll when sailing are synonymous with a boat suitable for everyone, stable and livable especially by families. In addition to the fly-bridge and outdoor deck, where there is no shortage of nooks and crannies to fully enjoy the outdoors in all its aspects, spaces are discovered on the main deck that can only be found on boats that are usually twice as long. The Lagoon 630’s sleeping area is multifaceted with 4,5,6-cabin versions with one double berth. There are also two versions for the living and service areas: one with the galley on the port hull broadside and the other with the galley opposite the dinette.
