Well, that is rubbing salt in to the wound. I'm sure the teething problems will be solved if the dealer does his job.

thanks guys
I cant answer on the 52 but we spent a few hours talking to a newer owner of a 45, he sailed it back across the atlantic, got caught in some horrible seas tall enough to have been crashing over the "flybridge" he said the boat shined and did a great job and everyone felt very safe.

I don't remember but he said performance was good. He did say he had to rewire the entire boat on his own dime as the original wiring was terrible and the french know nothing about electrical systems.

Privilige arent so great the ones we looked at the wiring was kind of not labeled and just strewn about. The leopard we are buying seems fairly well wired I must say. And there are manuals we have that show the entire wiring system layout and full schematics which is nice.

Re: Lagoon 52

The electrical systems on the new 52 are a nightmare.

Re: Lagoon 52

I spoke to an owner a few weeks ago of a newer 45 and he said he didnt even wait a year to gut the entire wiring system and replace it himself. He did not speak highly of the quality of their electrical systemm amd worse of its installation.

Re: Lagoon 52

Trying not to stereotype but many of the french boats seem to have this issue, American, South African and Ausralian not so much.

Re: Lagoon 52

Antares wiring systems and documentation, including wiring diagrams that are downloadable, are exceptional.

Antares 44 at $800,000 you get what you pay for. That wiring should look like a Pablo Picasso painting
