Re: Buying a Lagoon

Hi,
We have a 1999 410 Lagoon fully loaded for cruising, never chartered, that we are considering selling. It is registered in the US and we have no knowledge of registration outside of US. We are currently cruising in the Bahamas and would consider a deal if you are interested.
Cheers, Dave

Re: Buying a Lagoon

Another issue I question, is Broker vs private re extra cost tacked on to the price of the boat, due to commission?

Re: Buying a Lagoon

It's same buying a car, house or boat, YOU have the choice of buying private or through an agent/broker.
It's hard for a private seller to get the exposure, in our case it made it a secure purchase using a brokers escrow etc.....

Re: Buying a Lagoon

Jiun, We plan to sell our boat privately splitting the proceeds with the buyer that a broker would typically recieve. That way we both win. Brokerage fees are usually 10% which in the case of a $250,000 to $300,000 boat is, in our opinion, excessive.

That's the go.

Re: Buying a Lagoon

The problem with buying from a private seller is you don't have the representation to protect you through the process. Granted, some brokers can be a bit much. Not always the case though. Just my thoughts

Re: Buying a Lagoon

For the past 4 years I am working on a Lagoon 440. It is a good design and is very suitable for livaboard. As said above have the boat of your choice surveyed before putting money on the table.
Look for a 3-5 year old boat, at this age they are past the initial problems, well broken in but not completely worn out yet. Pay special attention to the engines genst and sails condition because fixig/rplacing them may be a big expense. Personally I prefer a lightly equiped boat and the equipment of my choice and installed it at the preferred location on the boat.
Good Luck

Hello Frank,

Did it meet all your initial expectations. Are you happy with it.
Regards Ian

Hi we are anchored in a small bay on the island of ZIRJE, just had breakfast and are heading out for a sail and will pick a bay somewhere for the night.
The purchase was incredible we bought for below 300,000euros the owner gave us a stunning mooring at KREMIK for three months free, he slipped the boat changed anodes, serviced all machinery, antifouled at a cost of 13,000euros at his expense, tanks were full of diesel, engine hours are 740 each and genset is 130 (now lol) the boat is in STUNNING condition, cupboards full of Austrian wine life is GOOD!
Now he has paid for 12months full insurance with Genarali !!!!!!!
OzForex did the exchange for us, in essence we sold our house in Qld and now have a beautiful 440,,,,, good deal!!

People comment that you get nil feedback through the steering well i gotta say this girl talks to me she is light and very responsive...

How are you guys? Cheers Frank
