Sail Two Stunning Locations on the World's Number One Catamaran

Smart Boating is delighted to announce the continued expansion of our syndicate boat fleet with a brand new Lagoon 42 to be based in TWO magnificent locations.

These fabulous boats are loved by their passionate owners for Lagoon’s unique expertise in innovative catamaran design, making Lagoon the world’s number one catamaran manufacturer.

Smart Boating’s new Lagoon 42 arrives November 2018, but if you order now you’ll save with special pre-delivery pricing*.

The Best of BOTH Worlds

The Best of BOTH Worlds

Every second year of the 5 year term, your brand new Lagoon will be based at two of the most desired sailing destinations you could wish for.

Not only will you enjoy the perfect live aboard layout of the magnificent 4 cabin and 4 bedroom layout during long, lazy summer days sailing in and around Pittwater…


…but every second year your Lagoon 42 will spend winter in the Whitsundays, affording you the opportunity to sail two of the most desirable sailing locations in the world, all on the one boat!

From November to June, she’ll be based at beautiful Pittwater, and then your Lagoon will seamlessly move to the excellent marina facilities at Hamilton Island, where she will be based from July to October, in the heart of the spectacular Whitsunday Islands.

Experience the Whitsundays

Simply fly direct to the excellent marina facilities at Hamilton Island, which lies at the heart of this stunning sailing paradise, and within minutes you can be on board your Lagoon 42, which will cleaned, fuelled, ready to board and sail away.

No need for a boat briefing as you would with chartering – simply stow your gear, provisions and sail away.

Whether you’ve come to sail, dive, participate in Hamilton Island Race Week or simply relax once your holiday in this spectacular cruising ground comes to an end, simply pack up and head home – no fuss, no hassle, no cleaning, no nothing! Smart Boating takes care of it all.

And of course when Sydney start to warm  up again in November, your Lagoon returns to Pittwater for the summer season. Now that is SMART BOATING!

Lagoon 42 - Fast Sailing

Enjoy the journey

The Lagoon 42 offers easy, comfortable yet speedy sailing with that extra capacity and those additional features we have come to expect from the global leaders in Catamaran manufacture.

This boat is comprehensively equipped inside and out. 

She is the perfect live aboard model for families and sharers offering four cabins each with their own ensuite bathroom. And even when you are sailing short handed the self-tacking headsail ensures easy handling.

Combine this with a hassle free, walk-on/walk-off professional management service and enjoy sailing as it should be.

Easy sailing

The Lagoon 42 is built with weight saving in mind. The hull, deck and bulkheads are infusion moulded. With less buoyancy required forward, the bows are finer improving the wave piercing power.

The raised steering station gives you a panoramic view, yet you’re well protected. And with all controls within easy reach…  this is an easy catamaran to sail.

A more balanced rig reduces pitching; a shorter boom makes the mainsail easier to control; a large forward triangle gives more choice of foresails – (a self tacking headsail is standard with options for larger downwind cruising sails); and a relatively narrower and higher square topped mainsail enhances performance.

By applying their racing experience and locating the mast further aft, VPLP have set new standards on a cruising catamaran.

Easy living

The saloon blends with the cockpit when the door and sliding saloon window are open – but you can close them anytime.  As with all Lagoon’s, there’s heaps of space for relaxing and entertaining.

The vertical windows optimise space and light yet maximise protection from the sun. Interior woodwork is Apli – a beautiful lightweight composite material.

The aft cabins boast island double beds and benefit from a bathroom with separate shower. Forward cabins have side access beds and an ensuite combined head and shower.

A U-shaped galley affords extensive storage space and wide work surfaces and is oriented towards the external cockpit making entertaining a breeze.
