I had been looking for a catamaran
for a few years, had test sails
and charters, considered used L400 and L440, but abandoned them due to the saildrive
problem of Yanmar
And then L39 came: It felt immediately right, the size is good for two people, we were sold
to it just at the first sight. We had a test sail that confirmed what others have said: It is an incredibly rigid boat.
process becomes easier after realising that buying a Lagoon is like buying a car: You talk to the dealer and buy the boat from him. The factory offers some options that they know will work
, but all other customisation is the reponsibility of the buyer, and has to take place after the delivery
. This is OK for me, I only hope that Lagoon gives proper incentives to their dealers to take care of the buyers, also after the delivery
. Even if the buyer is in another country or continent, when the unavoidable guarantee issues will come up.
Thanks for your feedback. Yes, I have realised that the final bill will go up, I also plan to add several things after the delivery (solar panels
, lithium battery
I am a bit concerned about the self-tacking jib
in heavier conditions, and have been thinking of adding genoa
rails to the rooftop to give the opportunity for conventional jib handling. This would also allow heaving-to. I did not understand how you arranged heaving-to from the helm, with blocks and lines to the stoppers?
(I would also be interested in using these rails for the sheets
of a strom jib, if it could be rigged somehow?)
