78 feet of pleasure…

The very first images !
Another superb photo and video shoot for Lagoon…
With Romain Claris and the models : Ornella Verrecchia and Cedric Omont
With the great help of our preferred helicopter pilot Jeremy Lamalle



Shot with a Pentax K1 (hand held from a dinghy, high iso!) Enjoy your night in the bay of Cannes



Let's keep zen before departure…



Enjoy!

This is a dream boat with a beautiful Catamaran design. Must be very stable but can go in relatively shallow waters! Do models at least get to have a short pleasure cruise?

Nicolas, a job well done by your team!

I know you work hard with Romain. These photographs are so pristine and spectacular. How come the name?

How much does such a fabulous boat cost? What engines does it have and how many can it sleep?

Is it ocean capable or just coastal?

more info on this boat in English here and it's predecessor the Seventy 7 - sail version - there
On a catamaran there are 2 engines (one in each hull) so it would be very unlikely to have a breakdown for both in the same time!
Models are paid! It's a job, no vacation!

I don't understand your question…

Depending of equipement options between 2 to 3 millions Euros

Is it ocean capable or just coastal?

Asher
Yes, this one is at present crossing the Atlantic ocean, you may follow them on facebook there in French but also in English…

The floor where the woman is sat is in fact a folding door which closed when cruising, it is placed in the owner's cabin :

I wondered about the name of the boat, but I see it is the brand name from the company. Is there is personal name for the owners or is it still for sale?

The price is not too high, but I would have to sell my home, LOL and would need to learn to read the charts, LOL!

It has a name now, but I don't know which…
No need to read a chart, it's all electronic now!
Also you better hire an engineer : ) or even a skipper, on such boats there are usually 3 crew, skipper, mechanist and mate… The owner is their to relax not to maintain the boat.

What will the engineer have to do all day? They will need another girl to talk to!

Have to ask Emile!

How steady is a CAT like this on rough water compared to a monohull with a weighted keel?

An advantage of a new boat like this is that one doesn't have to immediately upgrade and repair this and that!

Have you sailed in this particular boat?

I especially like the owners suite with the door that opens to a platform with a meditating model! This seems to be the height of luxury! What a life!

Maintenance! Engineers are there to work, they aren't on holidays…

Cats are NOT heeling, though they can be shaky in rough weather. But on this size of boat (78 feet long), you can leave a bottle on the table… (unless in a storm)

Hmmm, well, It's a vey sophisticated boat with sophisticated equipment: high maintenance needed every days!
Have you sailed in this particular boat?
Nope, not really, but beside of it on chase boat, yes!

That's a real treat!
