Holding tank retro-fit in owners shower

Anyone retro-fitted a holding tank into the shower room in the Owners hull? I gather this is where Lagoon factory fit them - it looks like a handy & neat spot right above the low shelf, but I haven't found anyone who has retro-fit one.

Anyone done it? If so, did you get a kit from Lagoon? Our dealer in the UK isn't much help with parts - anyone got a contact with a Lagoon dealer in the US? I recall someone regaling the services of a dealer in FLA, but I can't find any details via the search facility.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Thanks - Stacey

Stacy,

I've been at the Lagoon factory, they sure squeeze those tanks in tight!

Where are you located? In Los Angeles you can contact the local Lagoon dealer I used to work at, Naos. Mike, the maintenance manager, is reachable at mike@naosyachts.com. He may be able to order a new tank.

Hi Byron - thanks for the info. We're based in UK/Spain, but dealer's not great here, so I might just try your contact in LA.

Never been to the factory in France - bet it's really interesting watching them put it all together!

Many thanks - Stacey

The Portuguese dealer is well-known for customer service---in fact Lagoon gave them the Best Service award for several years running! They are especially good because with most Lagoons delivered from France, the first stop once the boat's best broken is in Lisbon, so they do a lot of warranty work, and taking care of the new boat owners. They speak English and French as well.

Re: Holding tank retro-fit in owners shower

Going to the two factories (the Bordeaux one is for the bigger cats as they can move them directly into the river), you will be blown away. Of course, Lagoon is a Beneteau brand, so they have a lot of the same systems as the Beneteau factories, which is to say it's very organized; all the lines are precut, the pieces go in, it's not "mom and pop" at all.
