A Lagoon 380 Catamaran it is.

For the last 3 or 4 yrs we have been working on our plan to escape the mid-west and retire to the Gulf coast and the Caribbean. We've been looking for the perfect boat for us. We have looked at dozens of boats and read about 100's of others.

We have finally settled on trading our Carver power boat on a Catamaran. We really like the Lagoon 380. We have read that like most boats they have some known issues, but as long as you address them you'll be okay.

Anyone have any first hand experience with the 380?



We really like the layout of the owners version, with the full shower.

From your prior post (valiant one), didn't think that this was in the budget!

Like most our budget starts at zero and goes up from there. We have found a few 380's in the mid to low 100K range. That is for sure at the top of our range but we should be able to do it.

I just stumbled upon that valiant one night. Never really considered it.

This video is a good. They encounter 20 foot seas and 50 knot gusts. Sailing with bare poles and peaking at 18.3 knots!

This cpl has a series of videos.

LOL, that stink-pot in our avatar is not much more than a floating condo these days. It's a place to stay on the lake on the weekends. Most of the time we tool around in the dink.

Right now our portfolio is mostly in real estate, as everyone knows RS is location, location, location. We have the right property at the right location so we are doing very well. That's not to say things couldn't be better. Property in Indiana was never overly inflated to begin with so we didn't feel as much of a hit as some parts of the country did.

Although we are actively looking for the right deal on a Lagoon 380 it will more than likely be this time next year before we can close the deal. I'm just happy I won't have to keep spending hours and hours trying to figure out what boat to get.

I chartered one in the BVI's. If you are serious about buying something that expensive you might consider chartering one too - potentially with a hired captain from the base who can show you the ins and outs of the boat. Great way to "test drive"!

What did you think of the 380 you chartered? Any feedback?
