For those choosing a washing machine for a boat, I could offer a small piece of advice based on 7 years of living with one.
If you are using the boat for any kind of long term cruising
or living aboard
, this is an absolutely key piece of gear
, which makes much of the difference between living and camping.
The closer to a full-sized and full-function one you can fit in, the better.
We have a Eudora/Eumenia washer/dryer which was common fit to large sailing yachts in the early 2000's around here. It's German and built like a brick house and has given excellent service
However -- it is quite small, especially for drying (capacities for washing and drying are different). This is a big drawback as it means many, many loads to get through a family-sized quantity of laundry
. Which means a lot of generator
use if you're off grid.
I have no idea whether it is realistic on a Lagoon
to fit something closer to full sized, but I would sure try, if I were you. My next boat will have a normal domestic combo washer/dryer, preferably Miele, and I will create space for it whatever it costs.
