Most of the mono hulls we've been considering are full keel
with skeg rudders. We particularly like these for the smooth motion, directional stability and ability to heave-to when caught in bad weather
or simply needing a rest.
Correct me if wrong, but I'm thinking the beam width of the Lagoon 380
and 400 will provide a similar if the boat is properly balanced so as to limit the hobby horse effect. Second advantage, to the ride of a cat, little healing which my bride will appreciate while sipping on her wine. I understand that these models are not considered "performance cats" but then we are cruising not racing
so this is less of an issue, although i do like the superior speed over similar monohulls. Having visited the Lagoon
owners site and watching a couple of reviewer videos and posts they seem to support this opinion. Not sure though if a cat can heave-to? And if it can, without daggerboards, the leeward slippage may become an issue if on a lee shore.
