Whats the competition? The Lagoon
39 is certainly no speed daemon. Waterline 37.10 and 11.6 tons with wide hulls call for more than just 70square meter of sail area.
I guess the new FP 40 has no problems to beat these figures but will it be enough to sail well?
The design shows wide hulls and a very long bridgedeck area, the dinghy
no longer hangs between the hulls but behind the boat. If you switch between layout of the Mahe and the new FP40 you see the difference. Many new cats are no longer made to sail but to entertain folks in the caribbean
it's sad they had too few orders for the Mahe to keep the model alive. But maybe the small cat market is just too small for two volume builders. We will see what will happen to the Lagoon 380
