It all began in 2021, when Libor Spacek, creator of the Escape to Nature project, and Lagoon announced their collaboration. With the aim of raising awareness of environmental initiatives, Escape to Nature - a major player in the photography and film production industry - is working with Lagoon to organize a voyage of several years’ duration involving actions at sea for the preservation of the underwater world.
The Escape to Nature project has a great ambition that can be discovered in two worlds. In the real world, as well as the virtual world, the project is to follow a Lagoon 55 and its crew through a series of documentaries that will raise awareness about the fragility of our planet.
Known for creating virtual ecosystems with pro-realistic and highly aesthetic graphics, Victoria VR has been chosen to invest in the Escape to Nature project. This was an opportunity for Lagoon to test a new process and offer the public the option of discovering catamarans from a new point of view.
After many discussions about the Lagoon 55 - its volumes, its layout, its materials - the very first Lagoon catamaran that could be visited in virtual reality came into being. With the help of Oculus headsets and controllers, immersion was total, simply being invited to appreciate the spaces, the woodwork and the upholstery. The visit went beyond any expectations. The Lagoon teams were won over.
Victoria VR and Lagoon catamarans are proud to have presented this new technology at the Düsseldorf Boat Show: the possibility to visit, in an ultra-realistic way and in the smallest details, a Lagoon 55. Equipped with Occulus and small remote controls, visitors were able to move around the interior of the catamaran, discover the 5-cabin version presented for the first time, admire the size of the aft cockpit and its terrace on the sea, or go on the vast Flybridge and admire the 360° view.
A new step towards the future, which Lagoon intends to pursue in the development and presentation of its range.
