I honestly think most people don't understand how sensitive cats are to overall loading, and to where that load is distributed. Even a cat used as a weekender has to be loaded with care to maintain trim.

If you want to transport all that stuff -- maybe you should consider a suitable single-hulled boat.

Thanks
Check "Owners handbook". All weights of "standard"-extras are listed, and there is a sheet to calculate how much extra weight you can carry.

Re: Is My Lagoon 380 Catamaran Overweight??

our is 8400kg - 18500 pound, and that is with all my toys half fuel tanks,+++++
holliday mode.
--------
Empty... it is around 7260kg, and it can take safely load of 3200kg more.
Total is 10460kg =23040Pounds that is what the CE paper is saying.
that is class A offshore, (if you just stay along the cost you can load up more.)

So you are a bit overloaded yes.

better get a good crane to get your real readings..
