Created in 1984, Lagoon was the direct prolongation of the department competition of Jeanneau (Jeanneau Techniques Advanced). At the beginning, Lagoon was illustrated by the realization of monoshells and multihulls of competition (Pierre Ier, Fleury Michon, etc) whose list of the victories obtained by the mark remains unequalled to date. Lagoon also answered original requests like the construction of the trimarans of the Waterworld film. Lagoon forms part today of CNB, company of the group Bénéteau (world leader of the construction of pleasure boats), and proposes a complete and coherent range of catamarans of cruising designed by the architects Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot Prévost, whose prize list in competition of multihulls is without equal. A first generation of catamarans is created between 1987 and 1996 with Lagoon 55, 47, 57 and 67: boats of owners for deep-sea cruisings. In parallel, Lagoon 37 and 42 are more intended for the market of the hiring.
A production limited, but establishment of the recognition of the mark on some strong principles: a design, a construction of great quality, performances with the top of the average. These first values constituted the bases of Lagoon. 1996 see the beginning of rising generation of Lagoon which is essential quickly on the market by implementing the fundamental following: maximum protection with the sun, exploitation maximum of volumes (which result in the vertical glazings of roof, become trademark of Lagoon), increase in comfort, listens to maximum tendencies of the private customers. Since 2003, Lagoon is a world leader of the manufacturers of catamarans of cruising thanks to a innovating range, but also with the support of its distribution network. Lagoon counts today more than 50 distributors, specialists impassioned by the catamarans, divided in the whole world.
