Sail Catamaran for sale
1988 Lagoon 55 (55ft)

Telestial Distraction is a 1988 Lagoon 55 sailing yacht, fully refit and restored to better-than-original beauty. In the late 1980s, racing catamarans designers made the first cruising catamarans. Foremost among the designers are VPLP ( a French-based naval architecture firm founded by Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot-Prévost). Telestial Distraction is hull number one; the original “cruising cat”, restored to better than new condition over the past several years. Why an early model Lagoon? The answer is simple: horsepower to weight. The ship is elegantly designed to provide spacious living, but it retains a racing cat “v-hull” shape and lightweight. Displacement is 13 tons versus modern 55-foot boats weighing in at around 17-19 tons. The difference is performance. Lively acceleration. Speed to safely to outrun weather and get to your destination. Excellent sailing qualities and easy ship handling with a small crew.
