I would love to hear some feedback on what your opinions are to it's build quality, living aboard
quality, performance etc.
I know that TPI in the States made some as well as Lagoon in France
but there are very few informative reports to be found anywhere.
I alos know that there are a couple for sale
on Yachtworld, but that's about it.
Thanks in advance
My husband and I have a TPI Lagoon 42 named Exit Strategy. We have been living aboard for 6 to 9 months per year since 2005 and sailed her from Connecticut to Trinidad and back spending a good deal of time in the Bahamas
and the Caribbean
This boat is extremely well built, sea kindly, and easy to sail. As a live aboard she is comfortable. We have modified the starboard hull
to have a large head
forward and desk amidships. We built a hard top bimini
and loaded it up with solar panels
. We changed out the refrigeration
, which had become problematical, so we installed NovaKool refrigerator
. They are VERY energy efficient.
If you want to spend some real time aboard and actually sail from place to place in the ocean as opposed to motoring in the waterway or motorsailing in light air, this boat is for you. She is also ideal for living at anchor
in the Bahamas
, or the Chesapeake Bay
. She draws 4.5 feet, which is a lot for a catamaran
, but it shows in her performance. She tracks well and tacks easily.
If you have specific questions, please feel free to ask.
Exit Strategy is currently in St Augustine and she is for sale
. (see ad on this site)
