I certainly won't be engaging in negative talk about any kind of cat here ... They ALL have pro's and cons and we all chose our cats for things that we find important. We cruise
the world on our vessels and as such living space functionality is pretty high on our list of priorities .... And we want performance too.
I have pretty broad shoulders and like to walk through my boat without having to turn sideways. Performance is also important to me as well as the areas on a boat that allow for different relaxation spaces ... In different weather
I never decide alone ... We are a team and I listen to the things Mrs. enjoys too ... She wanted to change to the Lagoon 440 given the fact that we were embarking on a more extensive world cruise
and wanted the boat for a different set of reasons altogether .... Including nice views out of the windows, homely feel, fair performance, safety
features etc. Etc.
Currently, we are considering the Lagoon 560 which we looked at at the Miami boat show
... Reason being that the kids
are wanting to join us more often.
I am not sure about the performance of a 560 .... Looking at it for different reasons but if we decide that's the way to go, we have told Lagoon that we will want to sail one in differing weather
conditions .... They have agreed to that!
What I was saying earlier on this thread is that although we can identify with the performance aspect of the Catana
, we can also state that a Lagoon 440 has good performance qualities.
