1991 Lagoon 55
Boat Type: Multi Hull Address: St Augustine, FL, US Price: $399,000


The Lagoon 55 is a large, well equipped, performance cruising catamaran. The Lagoon 55 is one of many cruising catamarans designed and built by Jeanneau (JTA, Jeanneau Technique Advances). The designers were Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot Prevost who used their knowledge of offshore racing and the latest racing sailboat design technologies to produce a cutting edge cruising catamaran, ahead of it's time. JTA built numerous catamarans designed by these two designers from 1987 thru 1996, including the Lagoon 37, 47, 55, 57 and 67. About 20 of the Lagoon 55's were built. All were composite (cored sandwich) construction, for lightness and strength. The majority were built using fiberglass & epoxy. A few were built using Kevlar and epoxy.

This particular Lagoon 55 is constructed in fiberglass and epoxy. The Lagoon 55 is 55 ft LOA, has a waterline length of 50 ft and a beam of 31 ft. The displacement is 28,600 lbs, which for a 55 ft cat is light! It also has a relatively shallow draft of 4.0 ft. The Lagoon 55s were designed with four private cabins and heads and two spaces forward which can be crew quarters or gear storage cabins, (accessible via deck hatches). The port side space on ONDINE has been converted to a workshop with an extensive tool and spares inventory. They are being sailed around the world from the clear blue waters of the Caribbean, Atlantic & Mediteranean to the South Pacific. They have proven to be strong, very fast, comfortable boats with plenty of room for ship's equipment, people and recreational gear.

 The seller has performed extensive refitting to ONDINE in the last 3 years, including:

All cabin soles updated with Lonseal Teak and Holly

Both 65 HP Turbocharged Yanmar diesels, (4JH2TE), rebuilt, (new in 2010, reconditioned to "factory new" specs 2015

Factory New, not rebuilt, ZF 15 MIV Transmissions both engines, less than 20 hours

New, 2010, Spectra Watermaker, 22 gph

Leisurefurl system and Mainsail overhauled and updated by Mack Sails, Inc, 2015

New, heavily built aluminum arch system carries four additional solar panels, two wind generators, optional second set of dinghy davits, storm anchor/drogue system and diving hose reels.

2400 watts solar total in ten panels, plus two wind generators make this a "Green Machine"

This Lagoon 55 ft catamaran, with its size, (50 ft waterline and a high bridge-deck clearance), spacious accommodations, dual helm stations and speed capability, will keep you and your family or guests comfortable, thrilled, and, most importantly, SAFE, for many years. If you are looking for a large, performance cruising catamaran, you must have a look at her.

 Hulls, deck, coach house & trampolines

This Lagoon 55 measures 55' LOA by 31' beam. Robust rub rails have been added to each hull to help protect the hull sides from knocks and bumps. Construction of the hulls and coachhouse is a composite cored sandwich of fiberglass and epoxy for light weight and strength. The design is one offering relatively low freeboard and a low coachhouse for minimum wind resistance. The hulls, deck and coachhose are white Awlgrip. Visibility from almost anywhere onboard is excellent. Eight large windows and the double sliding glass doors offer excellent visibility from, and natural light into the full width salon. The deck has eight Bomar opening aluminum hatches, new 2010; and two "Mansize" entry hatches for access to the original ship's crew berthing spaces, (now converted). The two hulls each contain two staterooms, each with a private head and shower. All have headroom of 74" or better. Three of the sleeping cabins (port aft & starboard fore & aft), have Queen berths. One cabin (port forward), has two single berths, (over & under).

 Most forward in the port hull is a laundry/pantry/storage area and a dedicated workshop completely stocked with every imaginable part and tool. Most forward in the starboard hull is a cavernous sail and storage locker. Amidship in the starboard hull is a spacious galley. Amidship in the port hull is the navigation station and control panels for the ships systems, electrics, navigation and communications. Each hull is fitted with a midship Goiot aluminum escape hatch located beneath the ladders.

 Cockpit & Saloon

 The Lagoon 55 affords it's crew and passengers comfortable accomodations inside and outside. She is spacious, light and well ventilated. She offers excellent all around visibility from the deck, cockpit and saloon. The robust welded aluminum tube frame and fiberglass hard, bimini assure security and plenty of shade throughout the cockpit area. The cockpit affords comfortable seating for at least ten people. Custom cushions for all seats assure comfort for everyone. A large varnished teak folding table to starboard enables all around seating. The cockpit sole is teak, and can be kept beautiful and secure to walk on. There is a handy beverage refrigerator in the cockpit, (next to the port helm instrument console. Large sliding glass doors can be opened or closed to permit unimpeded traffic flow from cockpit to saloon, or can be closed to separate the spaces. The boat comes equipped with Sunbrella/Eisenglass slide-ins if you want to weather-proof the cockpit.

 Twin helms with dual electronic engine controls assure excellent visibility and easy maneuvering from either helm position. Five winches, 2 port and 3 starboard, allow easy sail handling. One of the winches at the starboard helm position is a Harken #53, electric, self-tailing winch, which can multi-task for all sheet and line handling. The Lagoon 55 hulls, have long, tapered sterns with secure teak steps to create an extended waterline and allow safe and easy ingress and egress from the cockpit or deck to the water. A stainless steel folding ladder allows safe and easy boarding. Aft of the cockpit between the two hulls is the massive new arch system which houses four 250 watt solar panels, 2-wind generators, dinghy davits and stern anchor and storm drogue reels.

 Hull, forepeaks, and spaces between cabin soles and keel have been 100% filled with U.S.C.G approved flotation foam, from the forefoot, (bow), aft approximately twelve feet. Also, the forepeaks are completely filled from the keel all the way vertically to the inspection port, about four feet above the waterline. This will not only incredibly increase the impact/crushing strength of both bows in the event of collision, but also will prevent the boat from sinking if grounded on a reef, and having the hull torn away. The foam will retain the watertight integrity of the boat, allowing the vessel to not only survive a grounding/collision/impact, but also to continue on with its voyage unassisted to nearest safe port to effect permanent repairs.
