MBY can reveal the first photos of the Lagoon 40 Motor Yacht

Hot on the heels of the Lagoon 630 launch at Cannes, the French catamaran producer has released the first images of its 40 Motor Yacht.

Like the 630, it is based on an existing sailing cat model from the Lagoon range, this time the 39.

See our photo gallery of the Lagoon 40 Motor Yacht.

It’s a simple case of removing the rig, replacing it with a radar mast, upping the horsepower and away you go.

Whereas the 630 could be an intimidating leap into the world of two hulls thanks to its sheer enormity, the 40 Motor Yacht manages to pack four cabins and bathrooms into what is still a relatively compact footprint.

Being based on a preexisting model the deck layout is pretty rigid with a spacious cockpit aft and plenty of space to stretch out on the webbing that spans the bow.

The raised helm position is a telltale of the sailing origins and, as with the wind-powered version, this is your only helm position.

This does free up space the saloon where a dinette and galley share the space and plenty of light from large, square screens.

We are yet to be issued with a formal press release, therefore details are thin on the ground, but small power cats are a rare commodity so the Lagoon 40 Motor Yacht should be a welcome addition.
