The Iroquois Mk I is a Fast Cruising Catamaran for sale described as being very seaworthy and capable of speeds exceeding 18 knots in moderate winds. They are also renowned for being easy to handle; one article at the time described them as being able to come about like a dinghy. This is a vessel that is easy to sail, gives a good performance and is very seaworthy

Flying Feather is the finest example of an Iroquois MK 1 as she underwent a Major renovation from 2009 to 2011 while the vessel was out of the water in a shipyard. Much of the equipment and sails purchased in 2009 thus were never used until launching late last year.

All original gel coat ground down to original mat for inspection. All legacy repairs and stress areas re-glasses and reinforced.

Custom zincs replaceable underwater, Centerboards fabricated to be removable from deck above. Mast height approx.. 40ft above water. Mast tabernacle allows mast to pivot forward. Since launching and behind the owners home, further upgrades and improvements have been accomplished on an going basis.

AUGUST 1ST 2012 an in the water survey was accomplished by Accurate Marine Surveys Inc. to verify the workmanship and general condition of this vessel. This survey is available to prospective buyers. Though the owner will never receive the value back for the extent of the re-fit, the seller is pragmatic and is open to offers. This is a must see to appreciate Catamaran for those looking an affordable fast cruising Cat.

The Lagoon 52, the latest model developed by the world's leading builder of cruising catamarans, marks a whole new era in the design of such boats, as indeed did its predecessor, the famed Lagoon 500.

With its diamond-shaped vertical bows, bevelled hulls, its as if levitated deckhouse and tall rig, the Lagoon 52 is no ordinary catamaran, but its originality goes a great deal further than just its "outer" appearance, or even its interior layout.

This new Lagoon is the result of lengthy discussions between the architects at Van Peteghem-Lauriot Prévost (VPLP), the Italian Nauta Design agency and the Lagoon design department. These discussions led us to make some important and sometimes radical choices, while remaining faithful to what we believe in, in terms of elegance, comfort, safety, user friendliness and, it goes without saying, performance under sail.

Lagoon 52 : luxurious and contemporary

noble and luxurious materials, with soft shades for a harmonious interior

continuous horizontal and fluent lines give the interior open and generous spaces

continuity between exterior and interior life

a slender exterior design for a boat with a strong character

Lagoon expertise

infusion-moulding for increased weight saving (important for a catamaran), an optimal structure, and greater protection for the environment and shipbuilders

interior woodwork in Alpi® reconstituted wood, a sustainable source

vertical glazing for better protection against the sun and optimal space and headroom

gull-wing bridge deck for greater comfort in heavy seas

wide choice of layouts including 3, 4 or 5 cabins, with respectively 3, 4 or 5 washrooms

VPLP design: performance under sail guaranteed!

Exterior: elegance, comfort and safety

the boat is accessed via open aft transoms, facilitating boarding and disembarking

broad sidedecks, with recessed deck hatches

the cockpit is level with the saloon, and has an outdoor lounge and sun-lounging area to starboard

the fly bridge is reached either by a staircase leading from the cockpit, or by another leading from the deck on the starboard side

the steering station can be adjusted to three different positions (starboard, centre or port), giving the skipper perfect visibility under sail or when manoeuvring

Rigging: performance and user-friendliness

The decision to locate the mast further to aft directly comes from the designers' racing experience and has many advantages on a cruising catamaran:

a large forward triangle allows a larger sails choice: a promise for great performance

the shorter boom makes the mainsail much easier to maneuver

the mainsail, which is relatively narrower and higher, benefits from better winds at the top, thus enhancing performance

by re-centering the weight in this way, pitching is considerably reduced

Interiors: comfort, space, light

the saloon encompasses the lounge and dining table to starboard, a large galley to port which gives on directly to the cockpit to form a large 'L', together with the chart table in the middle, facing out to sea.

all the cabins have large double beds, storage space in keeping with the offshore sailing program of the boat and, of course, an en-suite bathroom with separate shower

the cabins have incomparable natural lighting thanks to the fixed hull windows, together with excellent ventilation thanks to the deck hatches and portholes that open out to the hull-side or to the cockpit.
