The Lagoon 400 most definitely follows the latter trend, though its designers have proven themselves adept at speed, as well.The Lagoon 400 is decidedly different, aiming instead to deliver luxurious living in a space comparable to that of a 60-foot monohull.
Still, she is very much a sailboat, even in a single-digit breeze. On the day of our Chesapeake Bay test sail, twin hulls and a reasonably large sail plan helped drive the boat at 4.5 to 5.2 knots in 6 to 7 knots of wind when reaching with a screecher set on its short bowsprit. Under power, the 400 loped along at 7 knots, with 40-horsepower Yanmar diesels (30-horsepower engines are standard) running at only 2,200 rpm. As you'd expect, the twin diesels, set nearly 24 feet apart, back the boat up and twirl it around magically.
Private use only.
Excellent opportunity to buy a pristine Lagoon 400 tax and duty paid in the Seychelles
