Unfortunately it seems to only show the current DTF.
i am observing now several days and assuming Lagoon 400 does not have 2 T of diesel, it cant motor now. 7 Kn is lots of diesel per hour. It is gaining against several boats, including nautitech, catana, seawind and more. Only FP Lucia seem to manage 3 NM edge in last 24 hours.

So, I think L 400 is doing fine SAILING.

I am impressed !

more i think you are absolutely correct.

Boat loaded for comfortable cruising, that is where lagoon excells. Some adventurous boats take only little food and little else, to keep boat under the limit, and risk starvation on sea, most of time they are fine and get to destination.

Lagoon, once you move on board, order removalists with truck , move things from your house on boat, sell the house, and go on ARC and do pretty well.

Re: Lagoon 450 sailing performance?

Lavezzi 40 Think twice, doing really well and beating all lagoons except 62.

Do not know the crew but suspect they are long time owners that know their boat really well and figured out optimum sail trim for all sorts of conditions. That 'know your boat' adds the most to performance in my opinion and is free

Yes. A couple of years ago Forum member "Django37" managed an outright multihull ARC win in his Lagoon 380 "Havhundren". This vessel is well set up with performance sails, but above all, was expertly sailed.
