Lagoon Catamarans has released photos of its new flagship, the Seventy 8, which debuted at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.

The yacht was designed by VPLP, Patrick Le Quément and Nauta Design.

“In designing the Seventy 8, the real challenge for Lagoon was to develop cutting-edge solutions designed for owners looking for a whole new generation of large motoryachts,” the company said in a statement.

The Seventy 8’s flybridge, which can be fully customized with a jacuzzi, has a large foldaway dining table to starboard and a sun lounge to fore, with a hard top or Bimini fitted with an electric sliding sunroof.

The ergonomically designed helm station is on the starboard side.

The aft cockpit, open to the sea, has a lounge area to port, aft seating and a dining table. A Tenderlift platform connects the two skirts and creates a swim platform.

The owner’s suite is separated from the rest of the yacht and features a private swim platform for direct access to the sea.

It offers a choice of layouts: as many as five cabins, each with an “Island Bed,” storage space and an en-suite bathroom.

Crew cabins in the forward hull are available with the aft galley option.
