Since 1977, the Cannes Yachting Festival takes place every September in elegant, luxurious surroundings in the sparkling bay of Cannes.

We are glad to inform you that Tan Orient (Beneteau Middle East – Tan Orient and Lagoon Middle East – Tan Orient) will have a booth at the Cannes Yachting Festival

The 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival drew to a close on Sunday 11th September having welcomed 630 boats, a record number for Europe’s largest in-water show. Boasting 191 new models more than any other show, the Cannes Yachting Festival cemented its position as the leader in innovation and product launches.

Lagoon, which just had the premiere of its Seventy 7 catamaran at the Cannes Yachting Festival last year, has announced plans for a Seventy 8 power catamaran that will debut in 2017.

The Lagoon Seventy 8 is the motoryacht version of the Lagoon Seventy 7. She will have a length overall of 78 feet 1 inch, with a beam of 36 feet 1 inch. The Lagoon Seventy 8 will be introduced in worldwide at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2017, as well as the Lagoon 40 & Lagoon 50. Exterior design is by Patrick le Quément with interiors by Nauta Desigin. Seven boats are going to be presented in total (Lagoon 42, 450 F, 52F, 630 MY)

When it comes to sports cruisers, the great sophistication of the Gran Turismo 50 appeals to lovers of beautiful objects seeking sensations. The flagship of the range is presented in Hard Top and Sportfly versions. It will be launched at the Yachting Festival in Cannes 2017 as well as the Océanis 51.1 mono hull.

The 1st 50 footer has left the Lagoon yard!

As announced last April by Lagoon, the shipyard was about to launch its first 50 footer!

On the 28th of July last month, the first hull left the Bordeaux yard, for the greatest delight of the staff who had been working actively to finalise the project, for several months.

After the final preparations, she was launched and headed out to sea for Cannes where she will be presented, from September 12th to 17th.

Please find all the information on the 50’ here.

A lauching slip for Lagoon in Bordeaux (France)

Posted by

After 6 months of work and the removal of 2,500 m³ of silt, the Lagoon launching slip is now operational. in the 1900s, it allowed the launching of large vessels of over 5,000 tonnes. Indeed, the large Lagoon production site occupies the site of former shipyards dating back to the 19thcentury! Today, all Lagoon catamarans built in Bordeaux, from the 52 to the future Seventy 7, go down this slipway to enter the Garonne.

It is very simple to use:

  • The boat is lifted by her bridgedeck, using the boatlift (submersible handling equipment) ;
  • The entire outfit moves down the middle of the slipway ;
  • The boat is levelled up by means of hydraulic jacks, and then the descent continues until the catamaran’s draught is reached.

Lauching slip - Lagoon (Bordeaux)

At this stage, only the boatlift’s engine and machinery compartment are out of the water, all the rest is immersed. The despatch teams then check watertightness and commission the engines.

  • When everything is operational, the hydraulic jacks supporting the boat are lowered, allowing it to float ;
  • The boat can then go astern into the main stream of the River Garonne in order to dock on the pontoon ;
  • The machine then returns empty.

This rehabilitation, a nod to former occupants of the site, bears witness to Bordeaux’ shipbuilding heritage.
