Lagoon 500 davits

Hello we would like to reinforce our 2009 lagoon 500 davits which I believe are currently limited to 250kg. We are looking at buying a novurania 400dx which with outboard is about 750lbs loaded.

Any advice on davits reinforcement options? We are reducing the aft weight by switching to lithium and really want a great dink for watersports and a bigger family. Any advice?

If you buy new davits, I may be interested in buying your old ones. I am located in the BVI.

Re: Lagoon 500 davits

I keep thinking that the Davits need to be more useful than just somewhere to hang the dink. I would look at very strong vertical davit Poles at least 2.1 meters tall. That can then be Used to support a large Solar Array across the back thus tying them back to the strong Hard Top supports across the rear deck area. Use the hinged style as on some Leopards and I believe some of the newer Lagoons. This will then enable you to lift the dink higher away from the water and support a 3kW solar array that you will want to charge those good lithium batteries.

Unless you are set on the Nouvurania, I would look at other simular boats, with lighter Aluminium hull, Highfield seem to have a deal with Lagoon which you may be able to take advantage of been a Lagoon owner.

Suggest you have an Engineer prepare some concepts for you. You will impose significantly more loads, including dynamics, into your hull and you may discover that strengthening will be needed.
