Yes, disappointing isn't it. You used to get very positive support on this forum, now there only seem to be anonymous brand destroyers and whingers left especially in the multihull sections.

Probably not helped by the few that continue to make outrageous assertions and claims about "their" boat.

I have a couple questions regarding the Lagoon 450 that I'm hoping somebody can help me with.


First, and this is a total noob question: has anybody figured out how to shade the forward cockpit? I love that seating area, but there is zero shade. I've combed the internet and can't find anything. I can only assume that there is a very obvious reason why this is a bad idea.. for example it would get in the way of the foresail. However, something that could fold back/stowaway when under sail (like a bimini) "seems" like it would work.


Second, has anybody built out a platform to put a larger bed into one of the aft cabins?


Clearly these are both comfort mods...but comfort is important .


I love this thread!

Iíve seen L440 and other cats with forward shade sails. The aft corners attach to the shrouds, thereís a notch for the mast if the mast is forward of the cabin roof, and the forward corners attach to the pulpits. A line from the headsail clew to the mast provides good height. Of course, this must be removed if you want to use the headsail.

Or, copy Leopard with a hard top over the forward cockpit, but that will be expensive.

Iíve seen one cat that started with semi-island beds and they used plywood to extend the mattress base for King size mattresses. 3/4Ē plywood I think.
