Classification & Certificates: The Laguna 24m is built in accordance with the R.I.Na Certification The class notation is Malta Cross 100 A 1.1 Yacht. The Laguna 24m complies with the EC Pleasure Crafts Directive 94/25/EC with the navigation notation Nav A.
Hull Construction: Hull is entirely built in steel Grade AH36 Fe510. The connections are exclusively welded, with the procedure indicated and approved by the Classification Society. The structure is of the type composed longitudinal/transversal with longitudinal girders and beams with proper spacing in order to guarantee the necessary transversal rigidity and keep within acceptable limits the strength of the panel according to the Classification Society Requirements. Designing the structure, it has been kept in the maximum consideration the necessity to obtain a final weight reduced within acceptable limits with the maximum resistance of the structure either locally or of the whole hull, in every sea condition up to the most critical. In order to optimize the structure, special consideration is paid to local reinforcement such as: Fore and aft sections in order to allow an adequate resistance to the strength due to the pitching and slamming. Shaft, rudders - V bracket. Everywhere it is necessary for the particular conditions of the hull and for the presence of the heavy machinery. The hull is completed with 4 watertight bulkheads, including the collision bulkhead, and are designed to resist to water column pressure above the deck as stated by the Classification Rules. All the passages of piping and electric cables are watertight and shaft passage through bulkhead also. The internal insulation is designed in order to reduce as much as possible the heat and noise transmission through the structures.
Deck Construction: As with the hull, the deck is built entirely of steel Grade AH36 Fe510 The exterior main decks are planked with first quality Burmese teak laid on marine plywood/filling compound used to fair the surfaces and prevent water infiltration under the planking. The bulwark is teak capped

At slightly under 24m, this genuine ‘mini-megayacht’ is the brain-child of Victor Bezzina; the owner of the Bezzina Yacht Yard, one of the oldest shipyards in Malta, established in 1842 and now specialising in the build, repair and refit of some of the world’s finest superyachts.
Having successfully carried out refits on a number of large superyachts, Victor decided to bring together all his extensive knowledge into a yacht for his own personal use. With the help of the Rossi Engineering & Design Services in Viareggio Italy and his own highly skilled and committed workforce, the Laguna 24m project took shape.
Using the highest grade steel for her semi-displacement hull and the very best aluminium alloys for her light-weight superstructure, a modern yet extremely graceful yacht was born. Further enhancements in 2007 included a reprofiled bow and a fantastic integral bathing platform accessed by two sweeping staircases from the aft deck.
Internally, the Laguna 24m steps up another gear. The Italian design influence in strong with clean & distinct lines everywhere you look. By using the highest quality walnut veneers, luxurious leather & cloth upholsteries and the finest Italian and German fixtures & fittings available, no corner has been cut to give the Laguna 24m the style and ambience her builder desired.
She has an excellent interior layout. Her master suite is on the main deck level, using the full beam of the yacht, a well proportioned VIP suite is on the aft lower deck and two further twin guest cabins on the lower forward decks, all with ensuite heads, so there is more than enough room for guests and family. At the forward end of the lower decks, there is crew accommodation for 4 with separate crew access to the foredeck and in turn to the main helm position. Perhaps one of the most unique features is the fantastic skylounge on the upper deck which opens out via semi-circular sliding doors to a large exterior deck space.
The engineering side of things is of the finest quality. The engine-room is large and well proportioned, with the focal point being her twin MAN diesel engines which will power her along at an economic 12.5 knots. Hydraulic stabilisers and integral bilge keels give stability at sea, so the Laguna 24m is a genuine option for those looking to travel further afield. A state-of-the-art touch-screen computer system takes care of the systems monitoring, allowing full control of the yacht and her systems from the excellent viewpoint of the upper deck helm.
The Laguna 24m also has one further unique feature. At just under 24m in registered length, she falls into a category that allows her owner the option to take the helm without a plethora of qualifications.
Now that the Laguna 24m is completed it’s development, the Bezzina Shipyard have taken the decision to extend the Laguna range, therefore PEPITO is offered for sale at a fraction of her original build cost.
