S/V Razon is a 2011 Lagoon 400 Cruising Catamaran for sale by owner. This wonderful turnkey catamaran is the 4 cabin charter version and is a fully loaded bluewater cruising beauty. The 400 is a remarkably designed, “galley up” catamaran, the most popular of its category with more than 600 hulls built.
There is sliding window connecting the galley to the cockpit keeping everyone in the conversation, creating an large open space. There are four cabins and 4 heads with their own private bath and showers. There are “V” berths at the forward of each hull that can be used as extra cabin for extra storage. Cabins are light and bright and well ventilated along with fans in all.
The Lagoon 400 is one of the French yard’s most successful models to date. Lagoon began building this model in 2009, production finished in 2017, so a lengthy run of 8 years. The innovation in the Lagoon 400 is the amount of living space that VPLP have managed to pack into this boat.
The 400 is built using Lagoon’s tried and trusted method: : solid laminate below the waterline and balsa core above, including the decks. The hulls and decks are infused with polyester, and Lagoon adds vinylester resin to the hulls as an osmotic barrier.
Sailors won’t be disappointed with the Lagoon 400, especially off the wind. Sure, there is a trade off for all of that living space, but you should comfortably achieve 7 knots and over in a breeze, even upwind. She tacks well if you boost the speed before coming through the wind. The genoa is easy enough to handle. In a breeze, she’ll comfortably claw off a lee shore. A Good Sailor in a Breeze, Especially Off the Wind.
In moderate winds (10-20 kts), the Lagoon 400 sails well from 50° to 140° TWA. Like most cats, running directly downwind is not really an option unless you have a parasailor or spinnaker as the shrouds stop you from opening up the mainsail. You are better off “tacking” downwind and moving the apparent wind forward. You can expect a SOG of around half of the apparent wind, up to 10 kts of boat speed. All the sail handling is done from the elevated helm station at the port main bulkhead which has become a Lagoon trademark for this sized boat.
Easy to Handle
The running rigging is simple, all lines, sheets and halyards come back to the helm and all the work can be done on one of the tree manual winches. Raising and lowering the main and reefing works well from the helm.
Getting about the boat feels safe, as the layout has been kept clean with wide flush decks with recessed hatches. The bow lockers will comfortably store all your lines, fenders,and sails, and they have a false floor giving you an additional lower section to store stuff.
This is where Lagoon have excelled on the 400 and the design has stood the test of time.
The saloon and galley are very roomy for a boat this size, with plenty of storage under the saloon sofa. Add a fridge into the cockpit if you don’t have one and you have one fridge for food and one for drinks.
The saloon also includes a handy nav station. Head down below, and you will also note the living space that you get on these boats versus some of the competition. The berths are not that far off a 450, and there is plenty of stowage space.
Overall, this is a beautifully refitted Lagoon 400, charter version. We bought this boat in 2018 to cross the Pacific but had to abandon our plans due to Covid 19 and was very little used since then. The boat is currently docked at Club Nautico in Cartagena de Indias in Colombia for hurricane season.
