What are the actual cruising averages for those of you who have cruised extensively on a ~40ft production cat?
Hoping that actual cruisers with boats contribute and this isn't a speculative "I've heard that ..." thread. Please indicate if you're boat is loaded with gear
Thanks in advance.
I don't remember exactly which models, but I remember reading somewhere that there are vast differences between certain Lagoon
42' models that can affect performance.
Also, keep in mind that some cruisers intentionally keep their speeds down in order to reduce stress and wear on sails
and running gear, and probably on crew.
If your question is about crossing days, I would suggest posing that question as "what is your average (or target) crossing day", rather than talking about the actual speed capability of the vessel which doesn't really reveal what you want to know.
