Lagoon vs Seawinds Options ( BBQ Grill )

Aloha all, I am kinda torn between the Lagoon 500 and the Seawinds 1250 and I was wondering, does anyone have a Laggon with a BBQ grill as like the Seawinds does? Is it an option? Can it be done? I like the Lagoon's cockpit feature but I wish it had a grill on the aft deck. Any thoughts on this.

Mahalo nui loa..

Re: Lagoon vs Seawinds options (BBQ grill)

Wow, those are two seriously different boats. What does the grill have to do with it?

As far as a grill, I built my own rack and think it's the best - of course. It's like having a barbie at home.

Re: Lagoon vs Seawinds Options (BBQ Grill)

Are you joking? You're not really basing your choice of boat on whether it already has a grill???

Nah course not. Welcome aboard, I love your sense of humour!

Yeah, I know what you mean about the boats being diff but I'm new to this and I'm just learnin'. The grill is important to me because I love to grill and I'm plannin' on doing a lotta good eatin with my sailin' n fishin'.
The photo of your rig looks like it'll work just fine for me.
Thanks for the reply.

Re: Lagoon vs Seawinds Options (BBQ Grill)

Del, what you may want to do, if your looking at catamarans, is to go to that section and start paging backwards. There are probably 20 very good (and 20 pretty bad) threads here about selection criteria. After that, post what your thinking and we'll try to make yours another good one

FWIW, grilling was VERY important to me also. We just got back from an 8 day trip to St. Martin and I couldn't get my freind to stop grilling. Pretty much everything was cooked on the grill. We went through 7 Coleman propane bottles. I have the Magma connections to convert to the boats propane tanks and will be doing that next month. My one small regret was not having a side burner. Also, if I was rebuilding the grill stand again I would make the grill easily removable as it would also make an awesome fish filet table. The blood and guts just fall off the back (or in the dingy).

Grilling on gas?; real grillers use charcoal......

I have to agree with SS. Basing your foremost choice of boat on it's grill accomodations is rather silly.

Everybody knows it's beer cooling capabilities are of first importance, then the grill.

Re: Lagoon vs Seawinds Options (BBQ Grill)

You should also consider if there are cockpit refrigerators - or at least ice boxes - into your decision. Stern mounted ice makers are less important, I don't mind having to go to the galley ice maker...if I have to...

Re: Lagoon vs Seawinds Options (BBQ Grill)

Wow, I like discussing serious issues like this.

Sigma - Charcoal makes one heck of a mess but I agree, it's better. I'm too lazy to light a charcoal grill two times per day.

Tellie - You of course are completely correct. You can't even begin to grill without cold beer.
