Where can I find specific owners forums?

Would those in the know please direct me to forums for owners of Lagoon 410, PF Belize & Bahia and Leopard/Moorings. There have been lots of great comments in this forum but I am hoping that there is a concentrated source of information that will help me make a decision.

I am interested in these mainly because there are many which keeps the price lower, but may look at others if you suggest.

I am new to cats so like others I'm hungry for help in the decision process. I have chartered the TPI Lagoon 42, a newer 38 and a FP Venezia. Venezia was my first and seemed very slow in light air with sloppy 1-2' seas, wasn't impressed. I heard the Belize is much better performing. Loved the Lagoon 38's layout but am interested in a little bigger, the 410. Haven't been in a 410 so I'll have to get to Miami, from Seattle.


Thanks for your help in pointing me to specific forums.

From what I have seen, boat owners forums for different boats are spread out all over the internet. Usually one site for each type of boat. I would start with a Google search for a forum for the specific boat that you are interested in.

Search, for instance, < Stilleto 27' owners > and you’ll find:

Stiletto boat owner network:
WildJibe.com

Stiletto Catamarans:
Stiletto Catamarans
Including: Stiletto Catamaran Discussion TOC (Framed)

and more ...

With my limited computer and googling skills I haven't been able to turn up a satisfactory Lagoon owners forum. I'm specifically interested in a newer 410 as compared with the FP Belize 43 or possibly Bahia 46. Anyone want to help me? Thank you.

if your limited Googling skills can't find it that would seem to mean that should such a forum exist, it is populated only by Lagoon owners who are also Google masters - which probably cuts down the number of posts/posters significantly.

I'd say posting your question here (as you have, though perhaps start a new thread so that it's more visible) is probably your best bet.
