Lagoon 42. Adding options after the purchase?

Good day all. Recently I've been considering a L42 (2016-2017) charter version. To fit my initial price range and make payments affordable, I'd have to buy it only with AC and generator. Everything else I'm capable of installing later (solar/folding props/radar/etc). I have a few questions on what I can add though if you have a minute.


1) The factory 79 gallon fuel is too small for my comfort (circumnavigation). There are a few that I've seen with the factory option of two fuel tanks. All the ones I've seen that are affordable, only have one. a) Where are the fuel tanks located (under bed, bow storage lockers?) and CAN an 2nd one be fitted on an older model (2017) that did not come with a 2nd tank?


2) My wife insists on a cloths washer. Where is this located on a 4 bedroom model? Your thoughts on installing one: easy or hard? I'd like to stay away from one that is free standing in the bathroom.

ya, I know, very quiet.

Considering a Leopard 46 (2012 or so) as an option to the Lagoon 42. Seems most used L42 have only one fuel tank and I don't think 79 is much for world travel. Yes...its a sail boat, but 79gal isn't much.

i think you have to go to lagoon facebook group. That is where you will get answered all questions.

There is noone left in CF, apart from me and couple others that have nothing better to do and are killing time between sailing seasons on CF, and are too lazy to create facebok account.

I agree the general Lagoon Facebook group is far more useful for what you want, and far less prone to thread drift and argument. I think there is even a specific Lagoon 42 facebook group.
