I just spent a lot of time aboard both the Lagoon 440
and the Moorings 4600. One thing struck me with both boats however would be a huge issue for me on the Lagoon
and somewhat of a issue on the Leopard
. The cockpit
where you spend most of your time has zero ventilation on the Lagoon
and restricted ventilation on the Moorings/Leopard 4600. The conventional helm
station allows for full ventilation when the dodger
is unzipped on on most cats. This was a huge downside to me that I was not aware of before until spending a bunch of time at anchor
on both boats. The original 4600 had a ventilation slot that could be opened and closed however it appears this has been deleted on all the newer productions models.
With a Voyage 500 and a Lagoon 440
rafted together everyone was on the Voyage boat
because the cockpit
was so much cooler.
