I have sailed on a 2002 Lagoon
410 4 cabin/2heads version and been aboard a Lagoon 380
4 cabin/2 heads version from 2007 I think.
I am 6' 3" tall and my head
is touching the bridgedeck roof at the forward end of the galley
on the 410. Surprisingly the only place I could stand fully upright in the hulls was at the bottom of the steps and in the heads, just.
Going forward of the steps the headroom
must only be about 6' 1" then it's a few inches less going through the forward cabin
bulkhead doorway. In the forecabin itself headroom
is about 6' 0".
Aft of the steps headroom is about 6' 1" until you get to the aft cabin
bulkhead doorway where it's several inches less than that. The aft cabin itself has no more than about 6' 0" headroom. Worse than that was the ridiculously low doorframe height from the aft cabin to the heads. It must be about 5' 6". Ducking wasn't enough, I had to bend my knees as well to get through.
The other thing I didn't like about the 410 was the noise
slamming against the aft cabin hull
protrusions when sailing. The problem is it isn't a constant noise
. Imagine, you're almost asleep and then BANG you're wide awake. Or you are fully asleep and it wakes you up. That's the kind of noise I'm talking about. It was loud and right next to your head
. I didn't like it and my wife liked it even less. I'm not a particularly light sleeper so beware.
Headroom on the 380 was much better. It felt like it was actually designed for people of reasonable height.
The 380 doesn't have aft cabin hull
protrusions like the 410 has. To me that is a big plus. Also the aft cabin berth is fore and aft, so you don't have to climb over one another to get out of bed
as you do on the 410.
The 380 felt better thought out and although I couldn't put my finger on it I also thought it felt more solid than the 410. That may be because 410s are now getting a little long in the tooth or it may be that 380s are better built. I don't know. There are a heck of a lot more 380s out there than 410s. Maybe that says something.
If I had to buy one of these it would be the 380. An owners version 380 would be the best of the bunch but you pays your money
and makes your choice.
