Thanks for the explanations CC...and all understood, altho as we said before, it's your Show!
We share a lot of your views, by the way.
A further comment is that the extras are important, especially vis-a-vis
the 'base' Lagoons...or are you looking at one of Lagoon's upgraded packages with some extras? When we were looking, the base Lagoons didn't even include anchors or anti-foul!
So no, you won't need a watermaker
. We don't even have a watermaker and we crossed both oceans and now still venture regularly well into blue water
. We also don't have (and don't want) air-conditioning, washing
machine, etc etc. You may, however, need some safety
extras like navigation/radar and radio
setups or some power accessories like a genset or solar panels
and/or some creature comforts for fittings and the galley
etc...and we shouldn't even mention things like anchors and anti-foul as they are hardly extras!!
The point is -- Given your apparent care in the process, you probably already considered -- that it's worthwhile to pick up the Lagoon
list of factory options (many of which can be retro-fitted more economically, of course) and just read through it carefully with a view to deciding what on that list will be important for you...and then, of course, factoring that cost into your numbers.
As we said before, we wish you the very best whichever way to go!
