I am quite sure it was the Dealer, they blamed Lagoon but I am quite sure of what happened.

Re: 6,000M Lagoon 400 S2 review

Looking at those prices ex factory and comparing them to second hand prices it definitely looks quite appealing to go new ex factory. I would also be able to better customise it the way I would like (4 cabins with one cabin empty for storage, 2 head, 4 air cons and generator).

The real downside is I couldn't do some small sails while gaining experience and take small steps while working part time. I'm far from experienced enough to start a circumnavigation yet. My plan is to do coastal hops for a year before I head off.

It depends how much time you have to spare. We had zero cruising experience when we picked up our first lagoon. A couple of overnights and a lot of day sails down the Atlantic coast soon had us gaining experience. If you prefer start closer to home you can still take delivery ex factory and arrange for a delivery crew to deliver it. Obviously there's a lot of options to consider and weigh up. Including buying used.

On the 380 we needed to use a sponge on a string and push it down with a broomstick.
I'm 6', 180cm and the only places I can possibly bump my head are the bulkhead doorways. I'd guess there's pretty much 2m clearance throughout. The other headbanger is the corner of the galley overhead if you try work on the galley bench from the side near the door. Leaning foreword you can headbut the corner easily. After a few bumps you soon figure out what not to do..
Lagoon changed the rear berths with the S2 version to half island, meaning one side has access from half of the side of the berth, instead of both sides. For anyone with back issues this may work better than accessing from the end. We usually use the space for blankets or Jens keyboard on passage.

I have to apologise for the incorrect fuel data, going from vague memory. The actual l /hr at idle revs is closer to 1.5, and at 2000 rpm closer to 3l/hr. This brings the cruising range down to 750M at those rpm.

We did keep fairly good track of fuel usage but when running in the engines high revs are called for occasionally so it's difficult to gauge exactly. The chart by yanmar seems accurate, I'll confirm rpm required for different speeds next sail.

Apart from what the manual permits or not, there is an easy prevention measure - keeping the mainsail sheet tight. This gives the counter force to the jib.

Does it turn slippery after the application of the teak oil or does it retain firm footing?

Our secret cupboard with spring hinges and a spring stopper. It does not have a knob like the other cupboards. We keep teatowels and our passports there. Courtesy of a charming cabinet maker in Le Sables d'Ollones.

The floor is not slippery, I would say it's exactly the same as a home on land.
The only big difference is no grass to maintain. LOL!
