We are in same situation and the three boats in your list are all in scope
. For us the lagoon 400
s2 was our ideal but it seems brokerage owners versions are selling for near the same price
as new boats which is insanity in its pure form.
Personally I like the cockpit
of the leopard
and the double access to the saloon although the Ikea look is not for everyone, but for me the access to berths even with the new opened up bulkhead is not as nice as the FP or Lagoon and the delivery
cost means this is last on our list for new build.
The Lucia is a beautiful boat and its weight is better than the other two, I think the interior
is by a long way the winner and the styling of the boat is also the best. I like the helm
position and form and the Lucia is probably what my heart would choose but I do have concerns on build quality and quality of some of the equipment
, not that it is not fit for purpose but think it will require more maintenance
and probably sooner. The increases in pricing on any FP has been brutal and when you consider the mahe 36
was 175k EUR new when they stopped production a few back, I can't see how the Lucia which is 38 foot jumps up so much and the base model is super basic. You will need to load up on options.
Lastly the lagoon 40 is probably the compromise boat, it's a facelifted 39 with new sail setup which while a massive improvement over the 39 I prefer the size of the old 400. The new 40 also suffers from lack of storage
and is definitely the heaviest. However the build is decent and the interior
is pleasant with good function. The nav station is well located and the galley
is a good layout. The owners hull
is a great layout although wish they had put a larger aft looking window. The l40 would be head
ruling the heart as it probably is best compromise at price
But thinking changes on a daily basis. Probably not much help but thought would share my thinking on the matter as we are in similar situation.
