Namaste | 1996 Lagoon 42

Loreto, MX


1996 Lagoon 42' TPI


Referred to as the Lagoon 42 TPI, NAMASTE should not be confused with the more recent French-built Lagoon 410 Catamaran. She was built to yacht grade specifications by Tillotson Pearson in Rhode Island. This one has been meticulously maintained and continuously upgraded throughout her life. She is hull #50 of only 51 built.

She is the coveted owners-version, with 2 double aft staterooms plus 2 heads, and a custom workshop forward. Full galley and electronics, including a new Mexican Starlink system.

She comes with a new set of sails, recently tuned rigging, and an upgraded anchoring system.

A proven blue-water cruiser that handles easily, points well due to her low windage. As such, she can cruise at high average speeds in comfort and style. She’s already in one of the best cruising grounds in the world, Mexico’s Sea of Cortez, ready for you to get your cruising dreams started!

Manufacturer Provided Description

Referred to as the Lagoon 42 TPI, she should not be confused with the more recent Lagoon 420 catamaran. Built to yacht grade specifications by Tillotson Pearson, Inc (TPI) in Rhode Island.

First introduced in 1991, the Lagoon 42 is a boat of the style, build and layout quality that accelerated the popularity of the cruising catamaran in the USA. The Lagoon 42’s were made by TPI with their state of the art resin infusion process, and designed by the innovative French naval architects Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot Prevost. The optimized hull construction using balsa and vinyl ester resin saves weight, which improves performance and sea-keeping. With striking good looks the catamaran received a lot of attention at her introduction to the market. Accentuated curves of the bridge deck cabin give the design panache as well as keeping the windage low and allowing her to point higher when close hauled. As planned, many Lagoon 42’s were sold into the charter market, yet the boat is much more than just a party platform. She is a thorough blue water cruiser with excellent seakeeping, handles easily, points well and can cruise at high average speeds in comfort. Awarded Sailing Multi-hull and overall Boat of the Year 1991 by Sailing World.

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

I bought a yacht that I had never seen. I did this because I trusted my broker Andrew Holland. It was not an easy job for Andrew, as I am an experienced boat builder and owner of previous yachts, but work in West Africa. Imagine how hard it was to communicate what I was looking for. Andrew came up with exactly what I wanted. He dealt with time delays, all my questions at odd hours, and was there for the survey. He reported honestly and professionally. After buying the yacht, I arrived at the boat on a Sunday night, after dark, after travelling from West Africa to the Caribbean, and found it was better than expected. He never pulled punches and made me aware of shortfalls. I expected to spend my one month leave working on the boat, but actually spent less than one week, and was able to spend 3 weeks sailing – wonderful bonus.

Thank you Andrew for putting up with all my questions, all my worries and all my crazy out of the time zone concerns – you were totally professional, but also I know that if and when we meet up, it will be like a friend finally meeting. You are always welcome on Aseka.

Outstanding company with professional subject matter experts. If I were to buy or sell cruising sailboat, particularly a catamaran, Andrew would be my go to broker.

— JT

I have been sailing since I was a child and attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy. But when my wife and I began the process of purchasing an ocean cruising/racing catamaran, I realized that this is a world unto itself. Obviously, we needed to find someone knowledgeable to help us make an informed decision. More importantly, we needed someone honest and willing to put our interests before his or her own. I was lucky to work with Phil Berman at The Multihull Company. He repeatedly shunned the fast buck, choosing instead to work the long road to connect us with the “perfect boat”. I would be glad to recommend Phil and his company to anyone planning to purchase or sell a performance sailing machine.

— Eric Boutiette

Andrew Hodgdon was our broker when we bought our 2018 Lagoon 450F in Antigua in April 2922. He provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Multihull Company.
