Antifouling my Lagoon 380

hello fellow 380 owners!
Quick question, this is my first year owning a Lagoon 380 and I need to get her hauled, antifouled, and relaunched. Can anyone give me a rough estimate of how many liters of paint it takes to antifoul a Lagoon 380?

The boat is one year old and Lagoon recommended I paint it after the first year cruising in the Mediterranean. The SD20 Saildrives also require the boat to be out of the water to change the oil (you can pump out about half of the oil, but not all of it), so I anticipate hauling it out every year. That means I only need the antifoul to work for a year in the Med.

How many coats do you normally put on for this type of schedule? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

10 l is ample for 2 good coats Kenny. Lagoon grey is a mixture of white and black, about 20L white and 5 L black.
Also it's worth applying some international antifoul in the spray can to the sail drives and props, as well as the primer coat. It works well. Take note you need to launch pretty soon after anti fouling

IMHO it largely depends on the anti fouling's consistency.
I had to stretch pretty much to cover the 44 square meters Lagoon indicates for the 380's underwater hull with 5.3 liters of Attiva's self polishing "Giralia", so I wouldn't call it ample...

However, this one coat prooved enough for cruising Spanish waters between Ibiza and Almeria April to October: just slime when dry docking it for the winter. The older coat (different colour) was shining through in large spots, though, so I guess one full year in these waters indeed requires two coats.
