No doubt the Lagoon has a better load carrying capacity so if you need ac, diesel generator, deep freeze, etc. the Lagoon would be a good choice. We tried to keep our Seawind as light as possible but still carried over 100 gallons of water 45 gallons of gas and enough goodies to make cruising for us fun. We would do 75-80% of windspeed on a good point of sail and even better in light winds. I guess we didnt have all the creature comforts of the Lagoon but then again we didnt have to deal with repairing all those creature comforts.
