Lagoon project

Hello

Came across this on yacht world and was hoping to get some help with figuring out if this project is worth the time and money it wil take to get her back in shape 😊

I know its not easy to give advice just from some photos and a vague description but hoping someone with knowledge wil take a few minutes and give me their thoughts.

Im a handy man educated as a carpenter but have worked my whole life at sea on many types of ships(trawler,longline,anker handling, supply and navy) so the work i can manage but if it wil take many months and endless money and i dont save anything from it i will rather buy a boat in good shape 😁

My thinking was that if it takes a month or two of full time work and it wil not get to the price of a lagoon in top shape then it whould be a good way to get to know the boat inside out before i start my cruising life 😎

Re: Lagoon project

Although a relatively late model 2016 looks like it has been worked really hard, dive charter? IMO Price is way too high for the amount of work required. NOK 1million tops.

Re: Lagoon project

Yeah, says it's a "2016" - which means it was in "Netherland Antilles" (probably Sint Maarten) for Hurricane Irma. Is that what caused the damage? Is there a mast?

I think they are a lot of absent pictures... For instance, the pics seem to focus only on the shiny-new portions of the Port side of the boat and carefully curated isolated sections of the starboard side. What's going on with the starboard hull? Also picture of only one engine and it doesn't look all that great. What's with all the rust and corrosion in the upper-right corner? Was the other submerged?

Seems as if some enterprising people may have attempted to repair this boat and are now abandoning the project....

Oh - and the repairs would NOT take "a month or two". At this point, you must consider that they may well have been "repairing" this boat since 2017. That's 4 years of work - so far.

Re: Lagoon project

look at the engine photo. That hull was certainly flooded.
No mast, so I would guess she flipped.
She was totalled.

Whatever you do: Never again will she be worth anywhere near what a normal e-charter boat without hurricane damage is worth (250k?).

Re: Lagoon project

The water stains high on the wood trim tells the story. The paneling is a faux wood product called Alpi and it seems to come back decently from submersion. The trim is real wood and it stains. They are asking $150,000 USD for a hurricane damaged boat that is still not fixed. Seems real high.

Re: Lagoon project

Take a look at barefoot sail and dive YouTube channel to see what can be involved in a project like this. Now a few years in.
