Re: Damaged 2012 Lagoon 450, Only $150K

I am surprised that the advert does not state: "No Osmosis - Guaranteed".

Mate, it is "As Is" to include anything stolen between inspection and closing.

Truly you would be a fool to buy this for anything close to this price. This boat will never sell for anywhere near what a used sistership will, regardless of who and how repaired.

Well the vessel was brand new, so at least it won't need any antifouling applied for some time. Oh wait.

There's a good Inox shop just outside Split--he did a great job for me and charged less than the taxi driver. The hardest part was finding the place.

Taxi prices here are fantastically cheap!! I'm getting some bits made up in Storigrad but would love to get the address or a clue to what it's near?
We have some stainless tubing jobs that need local input checking tacking etc, just finding places is hard and using a Tom Tom is a hoot!
Cheers

You are denying yourself the finer aspects of cruising.

I hope no one except a experienced boat builder buys it. It's just a nest of very expensive tears.
...Right but someone will take it on. Back when there was a lot of amateur boat building, I would watch the initial builder build a 42 ft. F/G hull only for around $50K. Then it would sit for 5 years and sell it for $20K. 5 years after that 1/2 price again. Occasionally you see these vintage boats on craigslist for almost nothing. I've taken on a lot of projects in my younger years. This one is a really big project.

I guess you could beach it and offer it as a cottage...

Remember that the tension from the rig goes through the deck and hull.
That was my thought. To try and make this a positive outcome, maybe strip it and sell the parts on consignment at all the places in Florida. As pointed out earlier, it is likely the diesels did not get pickled after the event. If they have sat for any length of time, they are almost valueless. The rest of it would be land fill.

Ease up there buddy. It was owned by a well insured charter company. $hit happens.

From the yachtworld ad, at the bottom:

"Engines
It was reported that both engines and the generator were drained, flushed, and run and have been preserved."


Still too expensive, but this answers one question.



(On another note I will have to save the pictures for the next person who touts the unsinkability of cats and how this provides a liferaft of sorts. Maybe the lagoon would have floated with the flybridge just out of the water rather than sinking outright, but doubt it would have any stability in any seas and would likely turn over. Of course, if it was a mono it would have sunk immediately, but perhaps a long keeled mono would avoid this outcome.)

Re: Damaged 2012 Lagoon 450, Only $150K

Catamarans have shallow draft or not draft at all and the small underwater hull sections , so for a cata is very easy to surf bouncing in the bottom and reach the midle of the coral patch , in a mono the keel struck the coral and only waves can send the mono far way in the midle, more likely in a mono to be close to deep water than in a cata i guess, also i believe is almost imposible to lift or tow a big mono in the same circunstances , no hig tides and the mono is dead,
