This catamaran owner requires financial settlement only. Trades will not be considered.

S/V Busy Bee a 2018 Lagoon 400 Owners’ Version, Cruising Catamaran for sale by owner. She is only one of a few highly coveted Owners Versions available on the market. These do not last long and they retain or increase their value due to the limited supply. They are incredibly spacious with 7 feet of standing head room.

She is currently in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico and will be en-route to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Viewing is possible upon request while in transit to FL. This will include any pacific Mexico destinations as well as Panama(Pacific and Atlantic). Expected arrival in Florida ~April 2023.

This Lagoon 400 Owners Version has had only 2 owners, was never chartered, has had no storm damage of any kind, and has been upgraded extensively for long term live-aboard comfort. She has been cared for diligently while living aboard full time. She comes with regular maintenance records and a vast list of upgrades and spare parts. This is an ideal boat for a couple or a small family looking to start an extended adventure.

The vessel has been extensively upgraded (2k watts solar, lithium, extra fridge/freezers, etc) with comfort and convenience in mind. She is super clean, comfortable, safe, and has been equipped to sail around the world. Plans have changed and we now must sell.

Construction
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.

Sailing
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.

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.

Living Space
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.
