Manufacturer Provided Description
Naval architects Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot Prevost based their design of the Lagoon 440 on the latest long-range cruising multihull technological developments. Even at first glance, it is apparent that care has been taken in the aesthetic and functional design of the yacht: on deck, the coachroof lines are long and elegant, the forms are dynamic, spaces are cleverly used, ergonomics are optimal.
The boat is equipped for a comfortable life on the water. Light beige removable and washable fabric upholstery in the saloon, with 360 degrees panoramic view, large, 3 sink aft-facing galley with stainless steel countertop and a double sliding window towards the aft cockpit area. There is a sliding glass door between the saloon and the aft cockpit. Curtains are the same color as the salon fabric. Light interior wood-finish, with black floor boards. All LED lighting inside and outside, including NAV lights. Teak deck in the aft cockpit, light cream colored PVC cushion covers in the aft cockpit, flybridge and forward seating area. Original 6-panel white cockpit-awning with big windows. Beige bimini on the flybridge, matching the lazybag.
The raised central helm station gives perfect 360° visibility and all the control lines are within easy reach. Even a reduced crew can easily maneuver the Lagoon 440. The large benchseat in the helm station become rapidly the favorite spot to take part and enjoy the navigation skills. The hull design is powerful yet seaworthy, bow volume and care in the weight distribution reduce the pitching motion to a minimum. The gull-wing shaped bridgedeck allows smoother passage through the waves . High ratio sail plan and fine hull appendices make this new Lagoon 440 a fast seaworthy, comfortable and elegant catamaran.
2008 model Lagoon 440, equipped for blue water cruising. The boat has had two owners and has never been chartered. She was first launched in May 2008 in Italy, and has been used for 4 European seasons, before the current owner brought her to the Canary Islands for a further fit out. She crossed the Atlantic in the spring of 2013, and she has cruised the Caribbean since, now on the hard in Chaguaramas, Trinidad for the 2013 Hurricane Season. No VAT paid, she is registered in the Norwegian Ships Registry.

After a grounding damage to the forward edge of the port keel in 2011, the boat was dried out on the hard for 6 months, the new owner sealed the dent with epoxy in accordance to his surveyor's advise, and sailed the boat to the Canaries for permanent & professional repair, and further modification and fit-out for family cruising. The boat was hauled out from June to Sept 2012 for this. Both hulls were sandblasted under the waterline and 5 coats of epoxy primer applied, including rudders. 3 layers of black antifouling and a 4th layer along the waterline applied before launch in sept 2012. Hull thickness was increased by 4mm from the inside, in the forward 1/3 lenght of both hulls, bulkhead to hull glue-putty under floor level on both hulls removed and replaced with fibreglass and vinylester + topcoat, all screws for attachment of stainless steel through-hull scoop covers under the waterline removed, filled with epoxy, and scoops glued to the hulls with Sikaflex & primer, all through-hulls below waterline replaced with new (bronze), all bathroom sinks previously drained to the under-the-floor shower sump were re-routed to new nylon through-hull drains above the waterline. Under water saildrive to hull cavity surface area on each hull was grased before new fibreglass covers and rubber covers were glued on with Sikaflex & primer. The hulls, saildrives and propellers have continuously been cleaned after the launch in Sept 2012, and only a light power-wash was needed when hauling out on Trinidad in June 2013. The antifouling should therefore still be good for another 9 months or more in the water. Hull anode replaced Sept 2012. All work done by professionals during 2012 - 2013, with invoices.
