We purchased a new 2015 L450, so Lagoon
may have addressed these problems since. If not, you will need to address them.
1) If you purchase
the Code 0 make sure you have backing plates
installed under the d-rings toward the stern that the blocks will attach to. If not, the fiber glass is guaranteed to crack around the d-ring.
2) Disconnect the Lagoon
installed bilge alarm
and install a high water alarm
and connect the bilge
alarm to it. Otherwise when you run you A/C the discharged water
will set off the installed alarm every 20 minutes and it will drive you crazy. The A/C water drains into the bilge.
Personnel option to think about.
1) Install a tricolor on top of the mast
. The Lagoon installed deck
lights ruin your night vision.
2) We installed the outside ice maker and it is completely inefficient. It's faster to make ice in trays in the salon freezer
. Or buy ice locally and store it in the freezer
3) In the owners version we chose the sofa version. In hindsight, we should have gone with the extra storage
option. We rarely use the sofa because we are always storing stuff on it. The sofa looks better, but in practice you don't use it much.
4) Something to think about. Being from the US we went with the 110v. We have sailed from Les Sable d'Olonne to Costa Rica
and have only plugged into 110v once (St Lucia). We had a 220v converter installed, just
in case, but we use it all the time. In hindsight, I would have gone with 220v and saved the $10,000 and space on the transformer.
Saying all of that we love our 450F and would buy another one.
