Lagoon 450 model year changes?

Hi all - I am looking at buying a used 450F or 450S and wondering about differences between the model years.

It looks like the galley layout changed someplace in the 2015/2016 timeframe.

It looks like the nav systems changed from Raymarine to B&G in a similar timeframe, but it seems mixed, so maybe some folks changed that themselves.

The stern ladder changed at some point.

I saw a reference someplace to there being a hull shape change...but have not been able to find it since and Google shows nothing. Was I just imagining this one? If not, what/when was the change?

Anyway - interested in hearing observations from anyone that has insight into how the design evolved over the years.

Thanks much!

Re: Lagoon 450 model year changes?

Sail Drives and engines changed, the main change is from SD50 to SD 60 (assuming Yanmar install) The SD 50 needed periodic lapping of clutch cones which some cruisers found difficult/tedious. The replacement SD 60 had a different clutch system, but the early release SD60 models had other issues, usually fixed under warranty if discovered early enough. The revised galley layout was not that popular with cruisers used to the original layout. A galley window vent was added to later models which was useful. I think later models with air conditioning also had dual frequency 50hz/60Hz units so they could run in US/EU. The Rig was also changed, some consider the revised rigging not as good as the original set up but in reality probably makes little difference.
