Re: New L40 Pictures

What's the point of having a huge bookshelf on a boat? Especially in the modern era of the e-book reader?

Re: New L40 Pictures

In the Seychelles presently, im surrounded by lagoons. I've got to admit I find the styling of these new models very appealing.

I have 52F next me right now. Big ass boat, looks good.

"I've got to admit I find the styling of these new models very appealing."

That's how it starts. Innocent enough at first, then you find yourself looking at pictures and posts about Lagoons.

Then next you find yourself trying to negotiate a deal at a boat show or exchanging money in a brokers office.

That's not enough, you want more, another bigger one.

It's a slippery slope down to the dark side and it all starts with something so innocent as "I find the styling of these new models very appealing."

Welcome to the dark side "daletournier"

Kent
Not enough difference between this new 40 and the old 39, IMO.

One positive difference is that the new 40 has fore-aft rear berths, whereas the 39 has one or both aft berths in an athwart ("climb over your partner") configuration.

At least Lagoon has kept its main accommodation in aft cabins rather than changing to forward and over the bridgedeck like some other brands. I find this configuration noisy and uncomfortable in anything but a calm anchorage.

Re: New L40 Pictures

Its a mirrored 400S2: the helm was moved to starboard, the helm bench was replaced by a single seat, the door handles are sqare now to fit better in the robots grips (it's a anti-discrimination thing for the auto-pilot I think), also a square dance pole for the robot maid was added in the entrance and the anchor chain was moved in the assymetric trampoline to starboard too.
Also some more shelves were added in the owners hull, books will fall out on any passage - but the good news is, e-books are safely stored away in the reader, so no big issue. They are more decoration than usefull.

Also the triple-stainless sink was replaced by a single sink to save water and the nature - a tribute to the green approach of Lagoon. Instead you can use Eco-friendly disposable plates made of paper and compost them, so less dish-soap down the drain...

I bet the next generation Lagoon 400 in 3 years will have square poles on the outside (cockpit) and under the tables too as a big innovation.

Re: New L40 Pictures

one thing that I notice in the salon, the cushions seem more comfortable than usual.


I'm wondering if it is an option, or a standard on new lagoons

Still weighs about a ton too much. This needs a code 0 in under 12 kts. Really like the self taking jib as I single hand lots.

Pilot books? (not needed if you spend all your time in your marina though).

That sounds a bit contradictory to me, I don't see how a cruising cat could perform well in light winds with a self tacking jib.

Re: New L40 Pictures

I don't know a lot about this but it seems to me that if you're buying a floating condominium you're not looking to race it just to get to point A to point B or hang out at the islands you're not racing anywhere
, and don't want to. If you're telling me it won't move in the ocean it won't move at all with the regular sails that I find hard to believe.

And I think most people who own a sailboat probably would have light wind sails anyway, maybe I'm wrong.

I definitely would love to have one

Mike
